What does this DVR provide me with?
This four-channel security system provides 24-hour protection and security for your home or business. It can accommodate up to four 1080p cameras which can be installed indoors or outdoors. You can also connect your DVR to your router for remote viewing.

How much can I record with this DVR?
The DVR4-4550 comes preinstalled with a 1TB hard drive, which can be taken out and replaced with up to a 4TB drive, quadrupling your storage capacity. The 1TB 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 system 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 play back stored recordings – all on your smartphone. The SwannView Link app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, as well as Windows and Mac.

Can more than one phone be used to view on line?

Asked by: HHHH
Yes, just use the same details on each phone and they should have the same access. However, the more users access at the same time, the more bandwidth the system will use, potentially slowing the stream down.

Hi. I have a wireless camera made by a different manufacturer. It recorded to a free service that is no longer available.  Could I connect to this Swann unit so that I can keep recordings? Or does it require Swann cameras to work? Many thanks.

Asked by: Phil
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item , as this is not the manner for which it was designed to be used.
