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 1080p cameras, with the functionality to add a further four 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 everything you will need to get your CCTV system 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, and to connect your DVR to your router for remote viewing. The cameras use a twin power and video cable, so you only need to run one cable to each camera.

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The DVR8-4550 comes preinstalled with a 2TB hard drive, which can be taken out and replaced with up to a 4TB drive, doubling your storage capacity. The 2TB hard drive can provide you with an incredible 30 days of recording and with the kit’s motion-detect feature, you can record only when movement is picked up which will extend this 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 playback 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 Nice piece of kit Bought this to replace an ageing Swann system. Installation was a breeze as I was able to re-use all my existing cabling. This is streets ahead of Swanns older generation system. It really did install itself quiet easily. (of course there were somethings that provided a little test but all were overcome!) The system can do so much, too much to take in while in the installing stage, but there are enough features buried to satisfy anyone I would have thought. The smartphone app works very well and you have the ability to view and maintain the dvr via windows and mac apps as well. Lastly, the video quality is very good and the camera field of view is much better than the old stuff as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable and simple install Had this about a month and bought an extra two 855 camera's to go with it for the price this system is FANTASTIC clear as a bell images reliable app its never froze or let me down as yet i would purchase another in a heartbeat what more can i say. I did buy shotgun cable to make my own cable runs instead of using the supplied cable but that was simply a matter of choice the factory supplied cable is more than adequate, and makes for an easier DIY install. Maplin staff were great at the Cramlington store .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install I fitted this system yesterday and it was easy. The cameras work well and provide a nice clear picture and work well in complete darkness as well. If you are looking for a reliable CCTV security system then I would recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply works. We've had a CCTV system (not a Swann) here for about eight years and of course it was very long in the tooth. It was also a real pain to see remotely, needing a computer left on to keep the DDNS updated, which often failed. It also cost £700. This new one less than half! The resolution was not very good, even though, at the time, the cameras weren't the better quality available. The new product has filled in all the gaps in usability of our old kit that make it excellent value for money. For example, there is no need for a dynamic DNS any more because the UID makes the cameras instantly visible on iPhone, iPad, laptop (Win10) and of course, a monitor. We have a 20m HDMI cable feeding from the DVR to the back of the TV, meaning that with the touch of a button on the remote, we can see what's going on outside. It is so versatile, it would take too long to detail all the things it can do - that can be seen from the Maplin web page. The DVR is small, silent, and easily secreted away. The cameras have a very wide angle, which, as can be seen from the picture, cover everything we would want to see. With such a massive hard drive it immediately fixes one problem we had - we couldn't go back more than a week, and so would be an issue if problems had arisen while on a fortnight's holiday. Attached is the display over the HDMI feed from the DVR onto our telly. Finally, it was ordered on Friday, arrived Saturday and up and running Sunday. It's that easy. It comes with an 18month guarantee and the comfortable fact is that it has been sold to us by a reputable major retail company with a local branch. That is reassuring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value For Money An excellent system that proved very easy to install and use. The cameras provide an excellent view in both day and night and the software is straightforward to use. Monitoring the cameras can be done on either a monitor/TV connected to the DVR (Digital Video recorder - the "brains" of the system) or on a smartphone or tablet. Plenty of cable is supplied for each of the cameras but extension lengths are available if necessary. The system worked straight away and the only problem I encountered was in routing the cables through into the inside of the house, absolutely nothing to do with the system itself. I would heartily recommend this system to anyone who wants a CCTV system to protect their house without breaking the bank. I was fortunate enough to buy this when it was on special offer but even without the drop in price it is still a very good HD system offering 2TB of storage for a very good price. My only criticism - and it is a very minor one - is that Swann should embrace wireless technology and move away from the need for a wired USB mouse. The only thing I had to buy to get this system working - where I wanted it to be located - was a USB extension cable!

Hi, is the connectivity from each camera to the controller, 1 BNC cable or a pair of BNC's?

Asked by: Paul
The cable has two wires inside a single 18m cable, one video cable terminated with a BNC at both ends and one power cable terminated with a 5.5 mm x 2.5 mm power plug at one end and a 5.5 mm x 2.5 mm socket at the other .

Hi, how close to have to be to the cameras for them to record in motion detect mode. Is there a dvr with the option to have 2 cameras on motion detect and 2 cameras on continuous record. Many thanks

Asked by: Vince
This would be entirely dependent on the sensitivity level that the motion detect is set to.
