24 hour surveillance for your home or business
This advanced four channel security system allows you to add an additional two cameras to maximise the coverage of your home or business. The 720p cameras are capable of monitoring your property day and night with clear and precise 30m night vision range, suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

What is AHD technology?
AHD is analogue high definition which delivers high picture quality over standard BNC cables which are traditionally used for CCTV. AHD is excellent when upgrading a CCTV system as it allows you to upgrade to a high definition picture without having to change the existing cabling.

Simple set up and monitoring
The preconfigured settings are ideal for a quick and easy set up straight out of the box. The huge preinstalled 500GB hard drive can record continuously for up to 30 days providing a reliable and effective security solution. You can also play back all channels at the same time for simple and easy event tracking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent well rounded system I was looking for a great quality, HD CCTV system for my home at a reasonable price. After looking around, SWANN seemed to be the way to go. I picked this unit due to the fact it is one of their newer units, it records in HD, has night vision and was a reasonable price. Installation was easy, setup was quick and easy, the build quality is fantastic, the quality of the image is fantastic and would recommend to all. BUT, for those of you who use your smart phone or PC to view the footage, be warned. The SWANN app on the app store does not work properly, you cant view playback footage, only live. SWANN are aware of this and are working for a solution and the PC software is again not working as it should and needs addressing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent helpline Saw these instore on special offer instore and the assistant showed me difference between this and the cheaper lower resolution model. You will need a spare tv or monitor to set this system up, however this can be removed once you are up and running. I am not a technical expert and although i got the cameras up and running i could not configure them. I rang the helpline and they went through it step by step and then remotely took control of my computer to set it all up for me. I managed to follow the instruction leaflet and set it up on my samsung phone without any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I bought this system about a month ago and apart from a few niggles have been very satisfied with it. The software package is very good, even a dinosaur like me managed to get it working first time and the picture quality is fine. Just 3 niggles that prevent me from giving 5 stars (4.8 stars is about right) which this system otherwise deserves: (i) for security reasons I ran the wires directly through the wall of my house into the attic. Getting a BNC connector through a cavity wall is no easy task and requires a 16mm hole + a metal guide - I used a coat hanger. Running around from ladder to attic several times kept me fit, but would have been easier with a slimmer connector; (ii) the motion detector is triggered by rain and snow flakes - to be expected I guess but it does mean dozens of 'false alarm' emails; (iii) the software does not allow linkage to cloud recording, so a thief could run off with the HDD recorder and therefore leave no recording. I am being harsh here, this is a very good camera security system and I recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great CCTV system I bought this system and was impressed with the quality that I also ended up buying a further 2 cameras. Easy to set up and the only hard part is the installation of the cameras and deciding where the wiring goes. The plugs are abit on the large size so you have to drill holes rather large to chase the plugs and wiring through walls etc. Its a shame the plugs couldn't be disconnected to aid a smaller drill hole but nothing a bit of filler can't sort out. Love the fact you can view remotely on either a tablet or mobile phone but this really only works on Wi-Fi and rarely works well on a mobile network. The remote viewing of recordings/playback is also very bad on either Wi-Fi or mobile and rarely works and has no fast forward, rewind or pause functions. This really is a problem with Swanns app though rather than the quality of the system and something which Swann needs to address ASAP because other users have said the same. Would have given this product 5 stars if the remote view/playback app was better. Overall though a nice system to install and night vision is also good quality. Built well and cameras easy to adjust. A tip for installing and adjusting the cameras would be to either get another person to see the picture on your TV or monitor and let you know when the angle is perfect or connect to the system with a tablet or phone and check the picture as you adjust the cameras position. The wiring comes with 18metres of cable which was enough to install and hide the wiring easily but in case of you not having enough wiring then maplins also stock extension wiring for longer lengths. Cheers maplins and would like to add that their staff are always helpful full of knowledge and always happy to take exchanges or refunds. Absolutely love this company and will always chose to shop with them rather than buying unknown gadgets from the high street or online from other retailers as they know their stuff. Cheers guys :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sawn CCTV system very effective I bought this last month to use at an annual event I am involved in to protect our exhibitors gate. The security staff were very impressed with the quality both day and night. People noticed the screen inside the cabin and were pleased we had installed it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not all its made out to be! Warning. This states it is 720P with 30 days recording but in reality it only has 4, unless you reduce the quality to 960h then it's has 30 days storage. In my eyes this is false advertising. I now have to downgrade the quality to my old cctv setup I had before this one to get the 30 days recording back, waste of time upgrading in my opinion. oh and if you add any more cameras even more space is needed. Another eSATA 3 terabyte drive will cost another load of money. Pointless upgrading.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this dvr if you want to view fast playback Firstly. this is not a criticism of Maplin.Despite a lot of contact and help from Swann technical support and a replacement unit being supplied by them neither unit is capable of doing playback at X16 speed as is supposedly possible from the menu. The units run for approximately 10 seconds and then the screen freezes and the unit shuts down. All manner of fixes were tried but nothing cured the problem.To sum up, these dvr's do not do what it says either in the related literature or the actual menu. Swann even stated that the units were more dedicated to recording rather than playback. One therefore wonders what is the point of recording if playback is not a priority of these units. To sum up, if you want to watch any recorded images then you can only do this in real time or maybe at X4 speed if you are lucky.On the plus side the picture quality is very good.

why does my picture freeze and the dvr shut down when I run playback in X8 and X16 speeds? It does this on any of the four cameras connected to the dvr.

I already have 4 cameras setup to a DVR, however the DVR no longer works. I am wondering if I can just replace the DVR unit and two of the cameras, leaving the wires from the camera to the DVR in place, alongside the other two cameras.

Asked by: justin
This would be entirely dependent on the current cameras you have. I would suggest giving us a call on 0333 400 9500 for further advise.

Once the memory is full will the recorder automatically start to overwrite the oldest saved recordings with the new recordings or would I need to remove the saved recording to record new? Thanks 

Asked by: George
Yes, I am pleased to advise the item will support this use.
