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 720p cameras which are IP66 weatherproof rated, so can be installed indoors or outdoors. Each camera has a great 55-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, providing you with brilliant coverage of your property.

Get your CCTV system installed around the house, with 18 metres (60 feet) of cabling per camera, a power adapter, a mouse and some theft deterrent stickers included. The kit includes a HDMI cable to set your CCTV system up to your TV, and an ethernet cable to connect your DVR to your router for remote viewing.

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The DVR4-4400 comes preinstalled with a 500GB hard drive, which can be taken out and replaced with up to a 4TB drive, giving you eight times the storage capacity. The 500GB hard drive can provide you with an incredible 30 days of recording, and the kit’s motion-detect feature means you can record only when movement is picked up – which will extend the memory considerably.

Can I view the cameras remotely?
The SwannView Link app lets you keep an eye on your security kit wherever you are, giving you peace of mind whether you are at home or away – and even if you’re abroad. Ensure your DVR is connected to the internet using the cables provided, and install the app on your smartphone or tablet using mobile data or Wi-Fi. You can then remotely connect to the kit, giving you a live video feed from each camera and the ability to play back stored recordings – all on your smartphone. The SwannView Link app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, as well as Windows and Mac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Features Bought this yesterday as it had all the features I wanted having previously downloading the owners manual to double check. It also appeared to be easy to set-up with the set-up wizard automatically starting on switch on. However this was not the case, it was asking me for the password which I didn't have and no default password was provided. I rang Swann helpline and they gave me the default password which didn't work nor did the recovery password. I spent half an hour on the phone while they remotely accessed the DVR via my laptop and the internet connections, just as well I had these as the're not normally needed. The chap at Swann was very helpful and eventually reset everything and it is now working as expected. This may be a one off but I wonder if this had been tampered with before my purchase as the chap at Swann couldn't explain this either. I will still give a 4 star rating would have been 5 otherwise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless The system is very difficult to install and has limited functionality through the app. Make sure that you have everything that is needed for this system before buying it.

What distance is clear vistion

Asked by: David12
The camera will see to infinity, point it at the moon and it can see the moon (250.000 miles away). To be able to see clearly will depend on the size of the object you want to see and the distance from the camera, but other factors such as lighting and weather can play a part too. The further from the camera and smaller the object the harder it will be to see clearly.

What is the power consumption of the system?

Asked by: Dave
All available information for the system can be accessed through the manufacturers website. http://www.swann.com/au/swdvk-4720p4 http://www.swann.com/au/downloads/dl/file/id/1795/product/923/1580_4550_4750_5000_series_4_8_channel_manual_en.pdf http://www.swann.com/au/downloads/dl/file/id/1838/product/923/swdvk_4720p4_brochure.pdf The power consumption for the unit is not posted as in a typical in home installation it is not required information. If you need to know this info then you would need to monitor the systems power draw though an energy meter plug.
