Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value but............... The actual kit is good value for money is easily installed and set-up. I situated DVR in my loft for security reasons with intention of using SwannView Link for Mac to view/ playback. The preview aspect is good but the playback control leaves a lot to be desired. Upon contacting Swann they say they do not provide manuals for software so it is all trial and error or multiple phone calls to Tech Helpline. In frustration, I loaded software onto an old Windows laptop and functionality was a lot better which leads me to believe that Mac functionality is still in development stage. This has put a dampener on an otherwise good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last long!! I bought this and it worked fine for just under 2 years when then DVR broke and it would continually restart. I e-mailed Swann (because they don't have a UK phone number or service center you can call) and they basically said they couldn't do anything at all because it was out of it's 1 year warranty. I'm now left with 4 cameras and a DVR that's no use so can't say I'd recommend this. To be honest I wouldn't even recommend a Swann product due to their extremely poor customer service. My unit was obviously faulty but they just don't want to know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the box I bought this kit after an attempted breakin at a property I use when I'm working up North. The property is usually empty at the weekends and I wanted to be able to monitor it remotely. The kit is fairly comprehensive with the glaring omission of cable clips. Since I fitted it on a Sunday it was a bit of a pain to obtain some. Staightforward to fit, bit more of a struggle to setup the features. The notification by e mail feature is useless in my situation due to the number of triggers as my house has 2 footpaths close by which get a lot of traffic. The pictures provided by the cameras as superb although the field of view could be better. I'm going to add one more external camera to be 100% sure I have everything covered. I'm impressed enough to buy the same kit to fit at my own home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good DIY cctv system I brought this system over a year ago, i have added more cameras to cover blind spots, The system can be installed by anyone with small amount of diy knowledge. One tip make sure you can have access to cameras as spider webs appear on the camera lens and need to be wiped off. Good bit of kit and worth it for piece of mind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading advertisement on youTube To be true is was disappointment. These CCTV cam does not work for homes it’s only work for a shops with a good bright light and 2 to 3 metres distance from the person. Reminded me by the first mobile camera had 10 years ago. less than 0 star

how easy is this to install. do i have wires from each camera connecting it to the hard drive or just wires from the hard drive?

Asked by: nath
This system will have wires to the hard drive from the cams. How easy it is to install will depend on the skill level of the installer. The item is intended as a DIY item so most are able to fit the kit.
