What does this security kit provide me with?
This eight channel security system kit provides 24-hour protection and security for your home or business. It includes four 720p cameras which can be installed indoors or outdoors and are IP66 weatherproof rated. Each camera has a great 55-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, providing you with brilliant coverage of your property.

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

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The DVR8-4400 comes preinstalled with a 500GB hard drive, which can be taken out and replaced with up to a 4TB drive, multiplying your storage capacity by eight times. 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 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of kit bought this kit as a replacement for the Lorex wireless 2 camera package and it knocks spots off of the Lorex system. Wired systems are always better than the wireless systems because you don't get any loss of signal. It took me about 2 hours to install the system. once installed the setup is easy and straight forward, just ensure you have the network cable plugged directly into your broadband router rather than a switch unless you know about port forwarding etc. Dont let the 500GB hard drive put you off as its more than enough space for a rolling 30 day record but the system is up-gradable to up to 4TB. The 720p cameras are very powerful, even at night the image is very clear. The swann view link app for your smartphone is easy to use and set up. I totally recommend this product for quality, ease of installation and value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great system Bought this following my car bring bumped few times when on street. Easy to install (so my brother told me). Fantastic picture. Only down side I had to buy extra parts for the wiring to be waterproof on the connection between the camera and wires. And trunking so the white wiring didn't look too bad on my brickwork. Also I cannot use my wifi on other appliences when system is connected as it uses all the strength so I need to upgrade Internet if I want to use the phone app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel safe Having bought these to be able to view the property whilst out in case of burglary, I now feel very relaxed having had a neighbour broken into. A good clear picture and able to position the cameras almost anywhere to protect the building, and watch remotely too is very comforting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swann DVR8-1580 I bought this to replace my Swann D1 which had stopped recording. The DVR-1580 is much quieter than the D1. Also the cameras I was using before all have the same BNC connectors that this unit has, so rather than use the cameras that came with the kit I am using the old cameras. So it was very somple to pug in and connect the new unit. Overall a great bit of kit, simple and very good value.

could i fit the swann dvr8-1580 in the loft and use the the tp link pa4010kit av600 to link the system down stairs with out a hard wire ?

Asked by: gareth
I'm afraid the powerline adapters , must be hard wired to the DVR to connect via the network and access remotely on a app.

Is the quality high enough to read a number plate or make out a face at reasonable distance both at day and night?

Asked by: Mart
This will depend on lighting, position and conditions at the time so I am not able to say yes to any of the questions and guarantee this.

Can this system provide an alert to a mobile device when motion is detected via the Android app?

Asked by: SteveB
The motion alerts are not delivered via the app but you can program the DVR to send emails, which can be delivered to your mobile as long as it has been configured to receive emails.

Hi, what megapixel are the cameras? Regards Dan

Asked by: Dantheman
720p HD camera resolution provides images that are 1280 x 720 pixels (that adds up to 921,600 pixels, which means a 720p HD camera is not technically a megapixel camera), in total id would be 0.9 of a megapixel.
