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 1080p cameras, which can record your property through day and night with up to 30 metres of night vision. The cameras can be installed indoors or outdoors thanks to the IP67 weatherproof rating, which gives you the chance to place them in a number of different locations. Each camera has a field of vision of 70 degrees, providing you with good coverage wherever you decide to place them. Increase the coverage even further with the potential to add an additional four cameras.

Can I expand the capacity of the DVR?
The preinstalled 2TB hard drive can provide you with up to 15 days of continuous recording – even with all eight channels in use. The kit’s motion-detected recording feature means recording only starts when movement is picked up – which will help you keep any unnecessary recordings to a minimum. You can add even more capacity to this kit by connecting it to an external hard drive through the eSATA port.

Can I view the cameras remotely?
The SwannView Link app lets you keep an eye on the situation at home, giving you peace of mind whether you are at home or away. First, ensure your DVR is connected to the internet and install the app on your smartphone or tablet, using 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi. Your phone can then remotely connect to the kit, providing you a live video feed from each camera. When connected to a TV or monitor, you can change the layout of the view so you can see two, four or all eight cameras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set and quality however the instructions and Swann Website could be alot better. I am very please with my purchase from Maplin, Gateshead Metro Centre and particularity Andrew and the guys who were a great help. My problem is how do I record footage onto a USB or hard-drive? I have been on hours trying to work this out without any success! I have referred to the hard copy manual that came with the system and also downloaded the latest PDF manual, reference page 28 paragraph 3 and the instructions just do not work, so please could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong! (Tried different USB's and formats). Kind regards Paul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB This is superb. It has the facility to add 4 extra cameras, but I found that 4 was enough - for now. It is so simple to install that I surprised myself. I have never done anything like this before, but even a muppet like me found it easy to install and set-up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money Bought this system and the day vision and recordings are fantastic but the night time vision and recordings are terrible all i get are blurred moving objects both live and recorded with the night vision, Im now on the second system and its the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy. I bought this a couple of months ago and had the cameras installed by an independent company. I'm fairly satisfied with the product, does exactly what it's meant to do. Registered my email address and get updates as and when there is any movement with a snapshot attached. The cameras are very sensitive and I have to clear cob webs from the sight of the cameras fairly regularly. The playback is not very smooth but the recordings are very clear.

1.  Will the Swan systems only record motion and therefore record for longer periods - I go away for over 30 days... 2. It states that the LEDs last around 10,000 hours - this is less than 14 months!!  Is this correct and if so what do you have to do t

Asked by: Brian
You can set the system to record on motion the time this will save the recordings for will vary at how often the system is triggered, The LED lights come on only at night so last on average much longer than 14 months.
