I needed a 4k DVR system for my in law and this fit the budget and the functionalities. The install went pretty straight forward like all CCTV. I like color night vision, LED and siren feature which can be activated by the mobile app. My in laws loves the units and so far no issues.
Once the camera is installed, the pic is great, there should be a light on for night vision. I had use the home safe app to get the pic on the phone. I had to plug the phone into the router for the phone to pick up the connectio
I have a pretty good surveillance system already but I’ll be making some changes because as with any system technology moves at a fast pace. The camera sees everything. Unlike us, we see and then use memory to remember what we saw. We only remember a little compared to the camera that sees one hundred percent of everything all of the time. And it’s recorded for future use if needed. The two terabyte hard drive can record for months. So if a crime was committed and only found out months later, retrieving that crime will be a snap because the camera sees all. This powerful Swann eight channel system with four cameras means expandability with other Swann security cameras. The (Heat) and motion sensing cameras are a powerful deterrent because it detects Heat signatures and motion. That feature is a huge leap in surveillance for home use. Just go in and customize it to fit the area you plan to be monitoring. It’s that easy. The nighttime color cameras which all four are really amazing to see and watch. Knowing the colors of a thief’s clothing gives police something other than a guess to go on. Picture quality on all cameras is fantastic and for sure easy recognizing faces on hard drive playback. The stickers I’ve placed were all can see. The crooks will look for easier pickings. Even though these cameras can see pretty far in the pitch black of darkness, I still have lighting for security everywhere. LED lights have made it affordable to do so and thief’s don’t like areas that are lit up by lights. I will be integrating this system with Alexa but it can also be integrated with Google as well. This is one smart and affordable security system that doesn’t disappoint. It never takes a break. It’s recording twenty four hours a day. EVERY DAY!! Five Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!!
Holy cow - this is the real deal lol. I have cameras in my house - the most expensive being $50, so to say this is an upgrade is an understatement. Don't get me wrong, any security is good security, but this Swan set up has EVERYTHING and then some. Ok, so as to be expected, set up will be a bit more complex if your used to plug & go like I was. If you're not the handy type, get help (you want to protect your home, not damage it). Initially I wanted these for indoors to monitor an elderly parent, but I saved the $50 cameras for that. These bad boys are outside doing some serious work. Now, all I have to do is ask Alexa to show the door each time the bell rings (*not every echo can do this - you need one with a screen like Amazon show) or to check the backyard. Thankfully I have a handyman in the family as I could not have set it up on my own. I haven't mastered my surveillance skills yet, but I enjoy learning. If anything, the family of raccoons I never even knew existed are quite entertaining (I thought I was feeding cats lol). Four cameras can watch all sides of the house, though I only need them on 3 sides, so the last is above our garage instead. You'll certainly feel more secure, but you may also find you now have a constant desire to check & see what's going on. I do have peace of mind which is what I had hoped for. I feel guarded when alone and it's a nice feeling when I leave the house knowing my home is protected. I definitely think this Swan security system is worth it and I'd recommend it.
I am so happy with this new security system from Swan. In past we used Nest which was also great but depended on wifi and ours is very unreliable so needed something better.
Setting this up was a little bit of a chore but nothing my husband and I couldn’t manage. We ran the cables and installed the cameras as we saw fit, couple on the outside and couple throughout the house. I think I want two 2 more 🙈 These can be installed both indoor and outdoor. Picture quality is super nice, bright and great image quality. Night vision is also great. It detects motion and heat and will sound alarm and sensor lights. This is the main reason we put two outside, if there are intruders they will know you got surveillance. In this house we don’t only rely on cameras for protection but it’s good to let intruders know they’re being watched. These cameras are small but large enough to be noticed during the day and without setting them off. This surveillance system comes with a 2TB drive and all the recordings are being stored there. It is supposed to override and continue recording once full but we haven’t filled it up yet. So far all our footage is on there. The system doesn’t depend on internet but if you want to have remote access to your camera you will need wired internet connection which is way better and safer than wifi.
