Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for hime use I bought this kit before Christmas 2015. With my son's assistance we had the installation completed in less than 2 hours. The quality of picture is very good and the night vision is more than acceptable. Playback and review is simple to use and you can choose to view one camera or a number of cameras simultaneously. This kit does exactly what it claims to do and I've had no problems with it so far. I can't comment on linking to my internet as my router is quite a distance from the hard drive. The other feature which is attractive is the ability to add up to 8 cameras. I'm using 4 at the moment but may well add another 2 in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup / high quality So i purchased this as an upgrade from an earlier kit i bought from Maplin years ago, and the fact i could use my original cable from a system i setup years ago is a bonus. The quality of these cameras are fantastic as they produce a 720p image through a standard BNC cable. and the box is super easy to setup, and even includes some really in depth and easy to understand instructions. smartphone access is smooth and is really easy to setup 5 star product for sure. i would recommend this to anyone whether they're buying CCTV for the first time or upgrading from an old system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional CCTV and easy setup Top quality HD system and very easy to set up. Set up on the dining room table first and get everything setup and working, install the mobile APP and when you are installing the cameras have the system on live so you can use the mobile app up the ladder to position the camera. Mine is completely in the Loft using a powerline adapter to connect to my router, all monitoring and setup can be maintained on the mobile APP and PC software - No wires to hide 10/10 Swann Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted Bought this system to replace a previous 5yr old Maplins Sentient system which incidently was still working perfectly ! and was expecting better performance and was not disappointed as it has exceeded my expections and more..Been running two weeks so early days, but hope it is as reliable as the old system.All i need to do is get a wireless mouse which Maplins technical support has been helpful with.Don,t hesitate to purchase this system,you won,t be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noisy I agree with the other reviews on the excellent quality of the kit and its performance...however I wouldn't recommend having the DVR positioned where noise is an issue. The unit is really noisy when running, not what I was expecting for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system and very easy to set up Previously had a D1 system, upgraded to a Sentient pro but had internet issues so I returnded it and swapped it for this Swan system. Had everything on the DVR and internet connected within 10mins or less. Cameras a great and a nice size up from the D1 and Sentient Pro systems. Very happy. P2P worked straight away & the App works great and able to add my work system into the same app. I really reccomend this system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To use the Android device feature it needs a wired connection - but there are solutions. Self installation is probably not for the novice (but you can pay an installer). First, I had problems connecting to a TV using the HDIM cable (just had a blank screen). The issue here was that the DVR's default output is set to a higher resolution than some older TV's can handle. Solution; I first had to connect to a (borrowed) VGA monitor to allow me to access the system's dashboard to reduce the resolution setting; and only then it would it display on the HDIM TV. Next, Swann offer only a wired mouse in the box (which soon broke!). A Logitec wireless mouse requiring its own drivers won't work. The literature also says (in the small print) NO wireless mouse support. That's unhelpful where a wireless mouse is desirable. But a Maplin wireless mouse with generic drivers WILL work. Then it requires an Ethernet connection to your router if you want to use the remote access feature (e.g. on I-Pod or Android device). You only discover this after installing the cameras and 120M of cable as there is no prior warning until 'set-up'. Had I known it MUST be cabled to the Internet point of access. I would have chosen a different location for the DVR. I tried BT Powerline Adapters; but they have to be on the same fused ring main and my router is on a different floor/circuit. Eventually, after hours of talking to Swann technicians (not too helpful) and Linksys (very helpful) technicians to find a solution, I bought a Linksys N300 Wireless Access Point. Note here it has to be set as a 'wireless range extender' and NOT as a 'wireless bridge'. That is a .little tricky if at first you don't know where to look (not covered in the manual. In summary, this is a great bit of kit; and it works well (eventually); and is good value; but set-up might be a tad frustrating for the novice as none of the above issues and solutions are embraced in the manuals.

I have the DVR8-4400 with 4 external cameras. I want to add two internal cameras with sound and possibly PTZ . Is this possible and what cameras do you recommend GH3382

Asked by: Gh3382
Unfortunately the cameras available for this system do not include microphones for sound. Another issue would be that the 4400 series DVR model would only support a single audio feed, you could potentially add an external microphone such as the one linked below, but it would only support one. With regards to PTZ cameras, we do have one available which is suitable for this system and this is also linked below. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/miniature-bullet-cctv-powered-microphone-dv71n http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/swann-pro-a852-720p-pan-tilt-zoom-outdoor-dome-camera-a97tu

Are the cables fitted along the roof and fed in through 1 hole to the black box

Asked by: B111
The way the cables are fed would depend on preference and the property you are connecting them to.

Hi, i installed an Advamced Series D1 system about 2 years ago and the hard drive is broken and now it wont record. Will this kit work with my existing pro-535 camaras please. 

Asked by: Chris
Yes, but you need to tell the system you are using older 960H cameras. You will find this setting in the record/encode section.
