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, which can record your property through day and night with up to 30 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 70 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 1TB hard drive can provide you with up to 15 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. First, 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 5 out of 5 by from Stunning After over a year of neighbours discarding their cigarettes ends on our drive and outside our house but refusing to admit it, I picked up this little kit. The results were spectacular. Within a week I have the evidence and the clarity of the images is stunning at 1080p. I can only recommend the product and my friend is looking at getting one too. Set up was surprisingly simple. The only issue may be whether you are comfortable with wires around the house. There are pros and cons with either wired or wireless. Also there is the option of NVR. But if you are happy to go for wired DVR then this is a great item. Also got £20 voucher so very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! Swann has discontinued this product due to known fault. This product has been discontinued by Swann due to a fault with ALL units. Only records 1080p at 10fps, which is useless. And the advertised 15 days recording time is only when recording on the lowest quality settings. If selecting 1080p, the unit only records 48hrs worth before re-writing over the data. Swann was aware of this fault and has replaced it with Model DVR4-4550 which uses inferior cameras, but at least it records 1080p at an acceptable FPS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use I bought this on strong recommendations. It is a good price and is a deterrent, I hope. I seem to have been unlucky because my system hangs unless it is set to a recording resolution of 720 instead of 1080. Swann support have tried to help, including on-line remote support to update the firmware. I can't see much difference in the picture quality at 720 so it now works ok

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exrtremely Disappointed. I bought my system 4-months ago, paid for TSG to install and it has not worked 100% in that time. I am now having to pay to have it re-installed by a reputable company. The concept of the kit is good, providing it is installed by a competent person. You can have the best system in the world but if it's not fitted properly then it's useless and won't be recommended your customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb value for money! Previously had sky high quotes from CCTV companies to install two cameras onto my property, decided to look online and chose the Swann DVR4-4600 4 channel unit. The installation was professionally done, the coverage and image quality is superb and very easy to use. Superb value for money!

I have the Swann DVR4-4600 4 Channel 1080p 1TB CCTV Kit with 2 Cameras. I am looking at installing a further two more cameras internally but would ideally like a microphone attached with the cameras which would you recommend with the machine i have 

Asked by: Michelle
Unfortunately there is no camera that supports audio for this DVR, however you can purchase a microphone module that connects to the phono input on the back of the DVR http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/cctv-add-on-audio-module-kj44x

So the DVR connects to the router, but is it possible to connect each camera via Ethernet to a powerline plug, rather than connecting directly to the DVR?
