What does this security kit provide me with?
This four channel security system kit provides 24-hour protection and security for your home or business. It includes two 650TVL (TV Line) cameras, which can record your property through day and night with up to 25 metres of night vision. The cameras can be installed indoors or outdoors thanks to the IP67 weatherproof rating, which gives you the chance to place them in a number of different locations. Each camera has a field of vision of 55 degrees, providing you with good coverage wherever you decide to place them. Increase the coverage even further with the potential to add an additional two cameras.

Can I expand the capacity of the DVR?
The preinstalled 500GB hard drive can provide you with an incredible 30 days of continuous recording – even with all four channels in use. The kit’s motion-detected recording feature means recording only starts when movement is picked up – which will help you keep any unnecessary recordings to a minimum. You can add even more capacity to this kit by connecting it to an external hard drive through the eSATA port.

Can I view the cameras remotely?
The SwannView Link app lets you keep an eye on the situation at home, giving you peace of mind whether you are at home or away. Ensure your DVR is connected to the internet and install the app on your smartphone or tablet, using 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi. Your phone can then remotely connect to the kit, providing you a live video feed from each camera.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product let down by lack of instructions Fitted this in about two weeks ago, bit disappointed with the two cameras supplied, with their narrow field of vision, although they are very clear. Its a good job I was replacing an old swann system as there is know detailed manual to show you how to set up the recording times or the camera detection zones. I haven't even found out how to search back for a certain recording to play it back as I was getting fed up with the system installation on the day. The older swann system that this system replaced, was more user friendly and contain instructions for all settings, Unlike this System

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really Bad, No Control Over Camera Output Had this since Mar 2016. No options to turn night vision on and off. Will only support USB flash drives, cannot back up via USB SD caddy. Quality isn't so hot either. Can be noisy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, harder to set up I fitted this system for a customer earlier this week. Pros: The system was easy to install and get up and running. The camera quality is as you would expect from Swann. The DVR is quiet, small and efficient. £139.99 is a good price for this set up. Cons: The complete lack of instructions / guide make programming and tuning the system to get the most from it needlessly difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic but good! This kit was bought for a specific need & it more than adequately covers what was required. The additional installation package was also purchased - a very efficient and helpful service provided without hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment Installed on Fri. Image for both day and night, better than I thought. Range and adjustments are perfect for where I need them to face. Very easy to install and use.

what cables do I need to record and listen to sound

Asked by: June
You will either need an audio equipped camera or to connect a dedicated microphone to the audio input of the kit. You can use this camera as long as it is set to operate in TVL/960H mode before installation. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/swann-pro-1080fld-1080p-micro-dome-camera-with-audio-a79wg or you could attach a microphone such as http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/miniature-bullet-cctv-powered-microphone-dv71n to listen to the sound you would need to connect the DVR to a HDMI display device and choose a HDMI output resolution and enable the sound output.

how can I download images from the harddrive onto a usb memory stick without using a monitor ? to enable me to view from the memory stick in an office

Asked by: Bob Sawyer
The only way of backing up files without a monitor would be remotely via the PC or Mac versions of the SwannView Plus application available from the link below. These would allow you to remotely download from the hard drive and then you could copy those files to a USB device. The DVR would need to be configured for remote access and be connected to the internet for this to work. http://www.swann.com/us/apps

Hi, bought this kit and have just installed it but as I have only 2 cameras, the TV monitor cannot recognise this and still shows 4 monitors on the screen-camera 3+4 saying NO VIDEO.How do you switch off the empty cameras please?

Asked by: Gilliwil
Unfortunately you can't. The option is a single screen (you can scroll through both cameras) or 2x2 split or a 3x3 split etc.

I am having difficulty with email notifications from the DVR, using gmail email account with less secure apps enabled. Installed as per instructions and set up wizard, and use BT smart hub router

Asked by: tony
I had the same issue. Spent about three hours and finally got it working haha. Ignore the start up wizard and go to the viewing screen. Right click and click menu > configuration > network > email. And then input the details there. Here are the details I Used: Enable server authentic... = ticked box User Name... = "myname"@Gmail.com Password... = my Gmail acc password Smtp server... = Smtp.gmail.com Smtp port... = 587 Enable ssl = ticked box Sender... = dvr Senders add... = "myname"@Gmail.com Select rec... = receiver 1 Receiver... = "my name" Receivers add... = "personale"@live.co.uk So the "myname"@Gmail.co.uk is a account I set up for the dvr. This is used twice. And the "personale"@live.co.uk is my own personal email that I want to receive the message. Hope that helps :)
