    Got the NVR + 4 camera kit, this week tried to install it. The ethernet cable is around 50 feet, and not 60 feet as mentioned which is huge pain now for me. Installed the camera from attic and now wire is short by few feet.
    Have to order new ones, adding another cost.

    Why save on few cents for such a nice setup. This is not where you cut corners or else just remove cables from kit and make it more cheaper.
    Not impressed with cables.

    Hi D-V,

    We are sorry to learn your unpleasant experience in the cables of the system.

    The cables are 18m standard, which equals to 59ft. Thanks.

    I can confirm that I ordered the 16 channel NVR with 8 camera kit, and the cables are 18m as reported here. Don’t forget you lose almost 8 feet if running the cable up a standard height wall. That has to be figured into the distance.
