What features does my camera have?

A great addition to any Security system, the Swann PRO-881 is a flexible vari-focal camera. The PRO-881 gives a great image in most light conditions including total darkness with its powerful 30m night vision. With its vari-focal viewing angle you can focus on what’s important to you whether that’s focusing on a certain spot such as a safe or the widest picture possible for areas like warehouses. The high quality 850 TV Line resolution captures a great amount of detail to give you peace of mind.

How do I set up my dome camera?

The Swann PRO-881 comes with everything you will need to install it including 18m of BNC cable, power supply, screws and fixings. To record from your camera just plug into a DVR with BNC connections. Connecting the controller to the RS-485 cable allows you to customise certain camera settings. Watch on the go on your smartphone through a compatible app when you connect your camera to a networked DVR.

Where should I place my camera?

With its plastic dome, vandal resistant body and IP67 weatherproof rating this is a great security camera for indoors and outdoors. The camera is designed to be fixed to the underside of ceilings and overhangs. With its adjustable focus and position manually altered on the camera itself, it’s ideal placed out of reach but within easy access.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish camera Purchased this camera from maplin. Clearly states weatherproof IP 67 for outdoor. Straightforward installation but unfortunately after Several weeks the picture on the monitor Began to deteriorate and soon after there was no Picture ' video loss ' was only shown on the screen. Removed the camera to find it was full of Water. This unit is sealed with a gasket but Still the rain has found a way to get to the Camera. Very very disappointed with all swann Cameras. Stay clear definitely a make to avoid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great in the day, hopeless at night I've got a 16 channel Swann DVR with a mixture of cameras from different manufacturers. Some of them are Swann. This is the 16th camera (it's become a bit of an obsession to use all 16 channels). Anyway, this camera is rubbish at night. Totally useless. In the day, clarity, colour and overall picture quality are fantastic, but as soon as it becomes dark, it's a waste of space on the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Another great camera from Swann. I have the entire Swann system with DVR installed and added this camera and I must say that the resolution is above what I expected. Has good night vision and I have had this through the rain and stormy weather without any issues whatsoever. Recoomended buy
