Product Details

The Swann purchase was at the end of a lot of research into cctv camera's and lots of different systems. I'm so glad I went with this system as I've been really impressed with it so far. What you get for your money is good. Loads of functionality, lots of different settings and even the ability for the box to sound an alarm when the PIR is tripped. This was great when we had our car and trailer loaded up to leave early the next morning. We could sleep easy knowing if someone approached it we wou...

I was in two minds whether to install a wireless surveillance system or a wired one. I had previously purchased a wired Swann system a few years ago. The attraction of an easier installation with wireless was appealing, but I thought what if there was a "drop out" in connection possibly at a crucial moment. So I fitted the wired system and was glad I did, the quality of the recorded video and images sent via e mail are excellent. The 5 megapixel cameras are superb at facial recognition and numbe...

I bought the Swann DVR4-4980 4 Channel 5 Megapixel 2 Camera True Detect CCTV Kit a few weeks ago. I bought two cameras with it. I installed it myself at a fraction of the cost quoted by a cctv technician. It's set to record motion only so doesn't record all the time and fill up the hard drive. The quality of the cctv images is pretty good. The linked app for iPad and iPhone enables me to view images from my house anywhere. The kit gives me peace of mind in case of an incident at my home address....

Questions & Answers (51)

 
Once motion or heat detection is activated, for how long does the system record and is the time adjustable.
Jim, Hartlepool
Although you can schedule any time/date for motion detection to be active to suite your requirements, once motion is detected the system will keep recording until there is no further motion active.

Does the DVR have to be connected to the internet to work or can it be used as a stand alone recording system?
dave , Shrewsbury
It does not require the internet to work. The DVR will record all video footage for you to view locally. You need internet for remote viewing and notifications.

With regard to connecting the box to the router, is this a WiFi connection or hard wired? If hard wired can you use the TP-Link gear to hard wire it?
Chris, Nuneaton
Swann do not advise on using TP-links. For best results the DVR must be connected direct to the router via the Ethernet cable provided.

With DVR set to record 24hrs per day, and a 1TB capacity hard drive, please can you give me an idea, how many days footage can be recorded when using 2 cameras?
Mike, Bolton
The system would give you approx. 6 days of continuous footage based on using 2 cameras for 24 hours every day.

Can you programme the DVR via the smartphone application or does this have to be done via the mouse connected to the DVR and viewing through a monitor connected to the DVR by an HDMI cable?
Eric Godber, Snettisham
You can only programme and amend any system configuration via the DVR box with a mouse. Your smartphone is used for remote viewing.
