Great Deal
19 Nov 2012
By Waggledance
, Leeds
" Bought this Swann system to replace our old B&W system that lasted 9 years.
This is easy to fit , Good Value for the money. Very nearly plug and play.
The manual must be read to set up the finer points of motion sensing and record options.
Needed to use Live chat with the Swann help line at one point to assist with the setup, they sorted it within minutes.
Been using this now for 2 weeks and its Great. "

VERY PLEASED
23 Jul 2012
By Norse
, West Sussex
" Great bit of kit.
Very easy to install (even my wife could of done it), great picture quality.
I have installed this camera kit at my local rugby club to deter vandals, I am so impressed, I am considering installing it at home.
Have not wired up to internet yet, but looks pretty straight forward to do.

Not so great outdoors
2 Jul 2012
By Cozzy
, Northampton
" I bought this kit after using a similar swann unit at work. The features on the DVR are fantastic and when wired into a home network the remote viewing facility is great fun- and I suppose useful too.
Major problem though, the coating on the indoor/outdoor cameras supplied have rusted where mounted outside, turning them from black to a rusty red colour- really odd considering they are extruded aluminium! That is the only downside I have found, a respray will sort that out.
The IR night vision is really good. "

Un-decided
4 Nov 2012
By CptJambo
, Nuneaton, Warks.
" System purchased after 2 minor criminal acts occurred at my home.
Did lots of reading on CCTV systems before committing to the Swann system as it appeared to offer everything that I was after.
Positives:
Quick and straightforward install and basic set up.
Attractive looking equipment.
Friendly user interface.
Reasonable image quality during daylight.
Negatives:
Night vision quality does not live up to expectations - additional PIR security lighting a must.
Live web viewing from an external location tricky to set up based on a requirement to use 3rd party software to make it work. Swann should offer this as part of their service.
SwannView mobile app not compatible with my Blackberry Curve 9300 despite Swann claiming that it should do.
Due to leads having plugs pre-connected, a 20mm to 22mm hole is required to be drilled.
Overall:
Overall a fair system with room for improvement. External security lighting a must.
