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 4MP cameras, with the option to add a further four cameras. The cameras are IP66 weatherproof rated and can be installed indoors or outdoors. Each camera has a brilliant 75-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, and a built-in microphone to record sound, providing you with brilliant coverage of your property. The NVR8-7400 can record at 4MP on all eight channels simultaneously. The cameras are powered using PoE from the NVR.

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, 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 NVR to your router for remote viewing.

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The NVR8-7400 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 An excellent quality system. I bought this system to replace older cameras and a PC based control/storage system. I am impressed with the absolute ease of installation and setup. The quality of the images is excellent. Daytime images allow reading of a car number plate at 30 metres on my setup. Night time images do suffer from glare in headlights or from bright lights. So far I have not found a way of improving this glare with these cameras. However, from my point of view, this is a small issue compared with the all round quality. Setting up the Smartphone utility was easy and real time images are displayed on the phone screen. The utility provides an excellent range of system functions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All fine until you want to play any night recordings from a backup file. I have just finished speaking to Swann technical support and they tell me that the frame rate drops in night mode which makes it impossible to play back any backup files in anything other than double speed unless you want to vastly reduce the quality in a 'work around'. I have the NVR8-7300 but I am assured the problem still exists in the NVR8-7400. Please make sure your burglars come during the daylight hours because there is no means of saving quality images of night recordings - or alternatively buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality kit This is my third upgrade & I,m amazed at the quality of live picture , recording &a playback . The setup was a doddle even the remote android devices . The fine tweaking of the equipment is helped if you download the instruction manual . I will follow up with a further review after a few weeks of use .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing image quality, excellent motion sensing terrific value I just installed one of these systems in my new Dive Centre in St Lucia. It has 7 Bullet and 1 Dome camera. In my previous Dive Centre I had a commercial Honeywell system with 8 cameras 1080p and it cost almost £16,000. The Swann system cost me under £1,500 with a 24" LED monitor and it is far superior to the Honeywell system. The image quality is superb, day and night and the 4Mp resolution allows you to zoom in on the smallest details, even though the monitor is only able to display 1080p. I can read the registration numbers on my boats (about 3" tall) from 60 feet away. The NVR is so simple to set up. I have made wide use of the excellent motion sensing settings and even with 8 cameras recording (one 24/7) in full colour at full 4Mp resolution, I am able to store 10 days of recordings on the 2TB HDD. The only minor niggle is the iPad App, it works, but the quality of the image is poor and the functionality is very basic too. For the price, I don't see how you can go wrong. This is an amazing system at a fantastic price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality I purchased this CCTV system online and picked it up from Maplin in Leeds. No problems picking up and staff friendly and helpful with a few other bits i needed. The quality of the picture is outstanding. Having had a analogue CCTV system before it is amazing the difference between that and digital. Easy to install but setting up the internet connection was difficult. Luckily I have a IT specialist in the family who set that bit up for me. I can now watch live or playback from my phone. Its not the cheapest but you have to pay extra for quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit Excellent piece of kit. Just a shame that Maplin did not include an owners manual, nor any directions on where to find one on the web. It took me several hours to track down a manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded to this system to replace old swann system I've had for 4 years. Bit of a job as the old cables had to be changed for new one but well worth it. Excellent picture quality both day and night vision. Very easy to set up to see on phone tablet etc. Would highly recommend this system for clarity, ease of use and price. Ethernet receiver socket on camera a little on large side if you have to bring it through wall but it can be connected outside in junction box.

Can I add a 5TB hard drive to the SATA conection on the rear panel and use this as my storage lacation

Asked by: Johnny 7
Unfortunately i am sorry but the item in question doesn't support use in you intended application.

can you connect a cat 5 cable from one of the nvr ports and split it further dow with a switch and connect 4 cameras AS I would ideally only want to lay 1 ethernet cable down my garden rather. 4. I wouldn't use the other ports

Asked by: tvnicka
No, I am sorry but this will not support this type of connection, you would need to run all 4 cables back to the NVR.

My recorder is not near my modem to allow connection via the app. I was advised to purchase an extender which i have and it is not compatible with this. It only works if i plug direct to modem. Any advice on how to make this work?

Asked by: puds
A powerline kit is a far better way of connecting this then an extender. the item in the link below will work with this item. TP-Link 4010PKIT AV600 Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit

Will these cameras work with a CAT 5 length of  40M? I have previously installed CAT 5s to floodlight poles, where I need to install cameras. I can crimp new connectors to my installed cables

Asked by: KeithH
Yes, this should be fine at that length.
