Super HD Heat Sensing CCTV
The Swann SWDVK-849804 8 Channel CCTV kit features four 5 Megapixel cameras which boast Super HD cameras and heat sensing PIR sensors. Know exactly what is happening at key locations of your home or business using the heat sensors that accurately detect people, pets, cars and other objects that give off heat. This will allow you to cancel out the notifications where wind has blown a tree in the frame and has caused an unnecessary motion alert to be sent to you. The 5 Megapixel cameras also feature night vision up to 30 metres and a 70-degree field of view which allows you to accurately monitor your home or business at all hours, day or night.

How much can I record with this CCTV kit?
The DVR included in this CCTV kit comes with a preinstalled 2TB hard drive. Using this you can record and store footage directly to it and export anything you need urgently by plugging in an external hard drive or USB flash drive into one of the USB ports and navigating the menu using the included mouse. If some way down the line you find that a 2TB hard drive is not enough, you can even upgrade the hard drive up to 6TB. We recommend using a CCTV optimised drive. Thanks to its eight channel design, you can add four more cameras to this kit if you need more down the line.

Can I view the cameras remotely?
By downloading the HomeSafe view app from Swann, you can keep an eye on your home wherever you are. This is perfect for peace of mind whether you are at home or away – and even if you’re abroad. You can remotely connect to the DVR, getting a live video feed from each camera and the ability to play back stored recordings – all on your smartphone. The HomeSafe view app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, as well as Windows and Mac.
 

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible where to start, i had read the reviews about this being loud, but wow. Easily as loud as a bathroom extractor fan, so unless you’re deaf it can’t go in your living room. Set up is fairly easy, although the software is cheap and is a bit fiddley. Worst of all is the picture quality. I picked this one as it claimed to have twice the quality of 1080p! Good grief, comparing to vhs would be more appropriate and the frame rate is awful. Basically it’s like a late 90s pc camera. You can’t make out number plates further than 5ft away and faces the same. As for night mode, forget it. So unless your burglar comes in bright daylight and looks into the camera from 3 ft away this is useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DVR very loud!! The picture quality is great however the fan in the DVR is really loud. I thought it was faulty so exchanged just the DVR with a new one and im still experiencing the same issue. It would have been fine if the DVR was not in the bedroom. If the cameras were not already set up then I would have returned the item immediately. When taking still pictures from the mobile app, the pictures are all garbled. The customer service from Swann hasn't been the best. You can definitely find silent fan DVRs with good quality for cheaper. If only I could return the product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noise issues Just bought this and the fan does make a noise not excessive but you wouldn't want in your bedroom I found the fan is screwed directly to the metal back plate Which resonates the sound so I unscrewed and placed on blue tack which helps a lot I've also ordered a silent fan which I'm sure will be a lot better will let you know , if you do take back of it's the four small screws towards the corners that look like they have washers on and I think warranty may be void if you do although you can't tell the back been of

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MAIN DVR BOX REALY NOISEY !! I WANTED TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS AS WELL WHEN I SAW THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS, ITS ALSO TOO LATE FOR ME TO RETURN THE SYSTEM AS ITS INSTALLED! THE WORST JOB FOR ME WAS THE CABLES, BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE AND THEY SHOW UP ON YOUR WALL SO AS MANY AS I COULD, WENT IN THE ATTIC SPACE TO HIDE THEM NOT EASY THREADING BIG CONNECTORS THROUGH THE FACIA BOARDS! SET UP WAS EASY, BUT ONCE THE BOX FIRED UP I COULDNT BELIEVE HOW NOISEY IT WAS ! I TOO SET THE SYSTEM UP IN A BEDROOM BECAUSE OF THE CABLES REACHING AND NOW NOT SURE WHAT TO DO TO STOP THE NOISE? THE PICTURE QUALITY IS GOOD BUT FOR ME WHEN YOU ZOOM IN THE IMAGE SHAKES AND WONT FOCUS AND STAY STILL. ITS WORSE ON MY PHONE BUT THAT WILL BE UPLOAD SPEEDS I SUPPOSE? IF YOU CANT GET THIS DVR BOX OUT OF EAR SHOT I WOULD AVOID THIS SYSTEM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality Got this for an exceptionally good price and bought an additional 2 cameras. Easy to configure and is installed in my garage so all cable runs are hidden. Reports of a noisy fan in DVR are not really an issue or noticeable in my opinion and shouldnt put you off buying particular as cameras are 5mp etc A good buy +++

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money Purchased this on 21/10/17 easy set up and very straightforward. Yes there is little fan noise but can't hear it over the sound of the tv or radio and have to be sitting close to the DVR. The night vision isn't the best and the home veiw app keeps freezing on play back. Other than that great system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from that noisy i had to move it into the garage Brought this as a upgrade and to save running new cables superb cameras but the dvr fan was so noisy i had to spend a day re routing it all into the garage as we could not cope with the noise. Would be superb if the fan could be quieter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Bought this on sale for a fantastic price. Easy to install, plug and play. I left it running for a few days to see what was activating the recording before setting up the areas to ignore what weren’t required. Then I set up the push notifications which were pretty much spot on. I actually bought 2, 1 for my dad as well.

Would the DVR box work ok in the loft, standard new build loft with fibreglass insulation and no insulation under the roof tiles?

Asked by: john h
I don't see why not ,the recorder Operating Temperature is -20°C to 50°C, also a TV/monitor would be required for initial setup, I would suggest using some powerlines to connect to internet for remote viewing access, like the one on the below link : https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/tp-link-pa4010kit-av600-nano-powerline-starter-kit-a89wh
