I purchased this set because it allowed me to store recordings at home and yet log in from a computer or mobile phone. Other high profile camera systems require a monthly fee to store recordings in the cloud, I didn't want this outgoing. I'm still getting used to playback recordings and find it difficult to read number plates in our road outside my house, though if I find how to get the full size image on the screen (rather than freeze frame) it might be a better image. I got the set at £179 on an offer and was well pleased with this price for 4 cameras and 1tb of storage. I'd like to be able to get it to pick up a cat by changing settings so I can see what our cat's up to wne I'm away but it doesn't give false triggers for small animals. Still happy with the purchase
I use the Swann CCTV System to cover my various animal enclosures, as there is a fair bit of wildlife where I live, and my pet parrots were getting attacked by pine martens it transpires. The cameras are effective but because of the amount of rain we get in the Highlands of Scotland, they are definitely not waterproof. Two cameras had to be returned and one of the replacement cameras stopped working and I didn't want to complain again, so I got my friend who is an electronic engineer to strip it down and it was completely corroded inside!! We cleaned it up (vodka, not that I am recommending, better if it is 100% alcohol lol ) and managed to get it going again, but this time we have sealed round the joint and the remaining cameras too, with insulating tape, so I would strongly recommend that if they are outside, you do this from the onset. Better still, if you can shelter them a wee bit. They are otherwise, good cameras, just not as waterproof as described.
Good product, easy to install. Great picture quality day or night. I have 4 cameras 2 recording 24/7 and 2 set on PIR. This gives me 10 days recording before it starts to over write. Good product and a reasonable price. Phone app also works well
