Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Rosewill.

The recent economic collapse forced layoffs across the board, affecting private sector jobs as much as public professions such as law enforcement. The recession caused government furloughs that reduced police presence and made it difficult for others to find work. As a result, theft and robbery became an increased problem in many areas. Without the manpower to proactively patrol congested areas, it became more important to utilize crime prevention tools that could also assist in solving crimes.

For many, security systems are something they consider mandatory, or just too expensive to implement. Thankfully, there’s a whole new generation of affordable products that can help people get started. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Rosewill RSVA-12001, an all-in-one security system with four cameras and digital video recorder that can be remotely monitored. Rosewill offers the two similar kits with the same DVR, packaging four CCD sensor cameras in RSVA-11001 or CMOS sensor cameras in RSVA-12001.

    Just a quick comment. It seems to me that the US is determined to use wireless for everything, no matter how inappropriate. A security system with wireless output is an oxymoron – too easy to jam, conceal or hack. Undoubtedly NSA approved!

    FWIW, this sounds like a really good functional system, as long as it stays wired.

      I don’t disagree with you, at all. However, you’ll probably agree that wireless IP cameras are a very popular consumer item regardless. Hopefully future products come equipped with better security then the early models, such as those with websites dedicated to showing open (public) monitoring.
