To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Setup is pretty easy, cables were all long enough for me to set cameras on each corner of my house. Comes with a mouse for the dvr & an hdmi cord which is nice. Definitely need to find & download the manual so you know how to adjust the settings properly. Previous review says Swann logo cannot be removed but it can. You just open the main menu, go to system, select disable for the watermark. I had an issue with the password initially... I entered the password I had set but it said it was wrong. I had to call to get the information on how to set a new password. I think that Swann should include the links to download the manual & the instructions for resetting the password in the startup guide that comes with but that is my only complaint so far.
The camera's feel like a cheap plastic. The night vision is so so. Do like the fact I can pull it up on my phone but most Swann systems allow you to do that. Overall knowing what I do now I wouldn't have bout them. I would have spend alittle more money and got a better quality set.
