How many CCTV cameras can I use with this DVR?
This four channel DVR enables you to connect and record up to four analogue cameras via BNC connections. The 960H resolution delivers DVD picture quality which is more than five times larger than standard CIF security systems.

Can I access my CCTV cameras away from home?
Use a smartphone/tablet to remotely access your cameras wherever you are using the free SwannView app. Specific alerts can be sent to corresponding email accounts when your system detects motion or is tampered with, providing live up to date coverage. Setting up remote viewing has been made easy using Swann’s My DVR network configuration system.

How much footage can I record with the DVR?
The preconfigured settings enable a quick and easy set up straight out of the box. The VGA and HDMI outputs allow this DVR to be connected to wide range of TVs and monitors. The 500GB hard drive capacity gives you up to 30 days recording on lower settings or six days continuous recordings using the default settings and can be set to use motion triggered recording to save space. Additional hard drive capacity can be added by using the eSATA or USB connections.

why does one of my cameras only show hick lines when it gets dark, but is perfect during he day?

Asked by: mimmsie1
This could be due to either a lack of power or a fault with the camera, i would advise trying a new power supply as a first option, like our code VN10L

With all four channels in use by four cameras was is the best resolution achieved per channel, as seems to be the case on most systems that the resolution seems to drop with each additional channel used by a camera.
Asked by: Steve Rigby
This uses a Swann Trueblue DVR which is capable of recording video on all channels simultaneously at full 960H resolution at 25 FPS. RW
