How do I get the most out of my pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera?
Get the most out of your camera with a great 360 degree pan view with tilt and zoom functions. The Swann NHD-817 camera is designed for flexibility with its full 360 degree pan and four times zoom so you can get the most out of any position. With a viewing angle between 2-28 degrees and super HD 3 megapixel resolution and aluminium dome, the NHD-817 is a great camera for shops or homes. Perfect for real time monitoring to take advantage of the zoom, the NHD-817 is a great addition to any security system. To give you the best possible picture the camera switches to black and white in low light conditions to improve the clarity of the image and gives you night vision of up to 60m.

How simple is the camera to set up?
This camera can only be used in combination with Swann’s 1080p and 3 megapixel Network Video Recorders (NVRs) including NVR4-7200, NVR8-7200, NVR4-7300 and NVR8-7300. The NHD-817 is plug and play with no need for complicated set up. Installing is also simple and easy - the box contains an 18m Ethernet cable as well as screws and fixings. Using a NVR you can keep an eye on your camera through your smartphone on a compatible app and you can also use your NVR to programme the zoom, tilt and pan function to change at specific times or positions. Some apps will even let you move the camera via your phone.

Where should I put my PTZ camera?
With its built-in side mounting bracket the Swann NHD-817 is ideal to set up on the corner of your property or attached to a broad post in the middle of a carpark. To take advantage of the 360 degree pan, place the camera where it has the most available open space surrounding it. The tilt allows the camera to move to see anything underneath it. The NHD-817 can be used indoors or outdoors with its weather resistant IP66 rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality Images but needs Setting Up Manually I originally ordered the 1080p version but received the 3MP version which the limited documentation states that it is only compatible with the NVR-7300 recorder. I could not get it work. However, with Maplin Tech Support help I got it working with my NVR-7285 1080p recorder. The documentation that comes with the camera is non-existant and that online is limited and not very helpful. For the NHD-817 PTZ to work with the NVR-7285 there are a couple of essential things to do. The first thing with the PTZ camera that defeated me was the need to find and connect the mains power supply - it requires more power than can be supplied by the NVR over the cable. Next you need to change the camera output from 3MP to 1080p.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great camera. Great but cannot look into the distance quite as far as I would like and therefore must be installed quite high. Some installers want cameras low so that they can see faces this is a powerful overview camera. I took a little time to work out how to move the camera with the ap but once I got it it is great. Looks very daunting - great.

Swann NHD-817 3MP Pan Tilt Zoom Outdoor IP Dome Camera Hi I have the swan 1080 premium system but have noticed this pan camera also needs additional power but the back of my swan only has one power outlet for its own power so hows does it work please

Asked by: martin
This will come with its own power supply, this will need to be plugged directly into the camera using the in line power connector on the camera itself. As such, you would need a power point close to the installation location of the camera.
