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 1080p cameras, with the option to add a further two cameras. The cameras can be installed indoors or outdoors and are IP66 weatherproof rated. Each camera has an amazing 80-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, providing you with brilliant coverage of your property.

The kit provides you with everything you will need to get the CCTV kit installed, including 18 metres (60 feet) of cabling per camera, a power adapter with splitter, a mouse and some theft deterrent stickers. The kit includes the relevant cables required to set your CCTV system up to your TV. You can also connect your DVR to your router and enable remote viewing.

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The preinstalled 1TB 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 this considerably. The DVR4-4550 has one hard drive space, however this can take up to a 4TB hard drive, which can quadruple your storage capacity.

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. Your phone can then remotely connect to the kit, providing you a live video feed from each camera, and the ability to playback stored recordings. The SwannView Link app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, as well as Windows and Mac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product The package itself is quite comprehensive and includes a DVR box, two cameras and all the associated parts. You've also got the ability to add two more cameras in future if needed. My only gripe with these types of systems (and this is not limited to Swann) is that the BNC connector is quite big and since you're forced to route at least one end through the wall, you need to drill quite a big hole. It'd be better if you could terminate your own cables, but for a DIY product it needs to sell as what it is. I'm very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome picture quality I exchanged a wireless system for this item as I was not happy with the 'choppy/start stop' motion pictures I was receiving from it. This SwannView DVR44550 system is so much better all round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, night vision not so good This was really easy to setup, my only question is the quoted range for night vision, it says upto 30m, more like 10-15m. otherwise OK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I installed this system today myself. It's very easy plug n play. The picture quality is fantastic day and night. Not the cheapest system on the market but after reading lots of reviews this was worth the investment. I will be purchasing additional cameras to cover other areas of my property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in daylight. This is easy to set up and works great in natural sunlight and with the street lights on. Unfortunately our street light goes off at 1am and therefore the system is not that clear in darkness (I guess that's natural though)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the applicaion. Item is perfect for the type of application we need it for. Picture quality very good and easy to carry out a search for recorded data.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LONG PAINSTAKING SLOG FROM START TO FINISH!PATIENTS NEEDED AS MUCH AS 13AMP POWER OUTLETS first gripe was the size of holes you have got to drill to pass the bellwire size cable so its at least 18mm hole through your wall, second gripe was that there is only a single 12volt outlet on the back of the dvr and that means if you add extra cameras ,that means more 13amp 12volt outlets to hang precariously of your 13amp splitter because a third camera could overload the 13amp 12volt outlet in the box. be careful when you connect the dvr to the mains because its far from obvious that the 2 power outlets are different as the lower kva tranny is hardly noticeable to the naked eye. dont bother putting extra cheaper non hd cameras on the system as the picture is inferior to the hd camera supplied you can get the system to talk to your main broadband router via a wireless bridge which save you yet another 13amp connection with the tp link device that maplin were keen to sell me. the swanview app was no problem but getting the email settings setup is still beyond me as it will only work with gmail and yahoo addresses and as yet i still cant get the dvr to send me an email on alerts triggered however it keeps giving false alerts even when you target the trigger zones and when you turn down the sensitivity, once you have survived all of this , the installed product and the app are quite impressive but i would not advise anybody to diy install the system unless they have alot of time and patients alongside lots of 13amp power outlets and please bear in mind that i am a sparky

 I currently have a Sentient system which is discontinued, app no longer supported and Ive moved to Mac so system is useless. Can I simply switch the box leaving my current wiring in place or does the whole system need to be replaced?

Asked by: Shel
The cables would most likely be fine to be re-used, but you would need to replace the cameras with the new ones.

Can this product be used without a internet connection? If so is the only way to view footage by connecting a monitor, or is it possible to save footage to a USB or external hard drive to take to a PC?

Asked by: Richard
Yes, this can be used without an internet connection if used as a standalone CCTV system without the requirement on remote access. You can put files on to a memory stick to move to a PC yes.

I have had this installed with 3 x camera's. Can you tell me if for the 4th camera I can add a PTZ camera? will the DVR take the connect at the back for this? Thanks

Asked by: Echo
Yes you could add a PTZ unit as the 4th camera. We do not have any 1080p PTZ cameras suitable for this unit but the following 720p unit would work great. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/swann-pro-a852-720p-pan-tilt-zoom-outdoor-dome-camera-a97tu As long as you connect the PTZ control cables correctly and set the PTZ parameters on the DVR correctly the camera should work straight out of the box.
