Swann SWDVK-445752 4 Channel 1080p Security System
Swann SWDVK-445752 is a 4 Channel Full HD home security surveillance system with an innovative and modern design at a budget price. It is easy to operate and will help you protect your home, backyard, office, retail shop or any small business. You can set it to record for more than 80 days from up to 4 channels and leave it,and you can have a peace of mind when you’re away.
The cameras have 80-degree viewing angle which is quite all right and they are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors, being weatherproof and with a solid build quality. It comes with up to 100 feet or 30m night vision in theory and the image quality is fine, but not as good as the crystal clear Full HD image of the day time. You’re getting two cameras in the box and can add two more as it supports up to 4 channels.
It is compatible with the Swann Pro-T853 with Full HD resolution and the Pro-T835 with the regular HD 720p resolution. You may easily locate the incident video and then save it on an external hard drive through a network or USB. You can use your LCD monitor or large screen HDTV as the display unit to view the playback or live video, by connecting via HDMI or VGA port. There is also the HomeSafe View app that is good for use with Android and Apple devices and available on Play Store or App Store.
You will get an FHD 1080p resolution Digital Video Recorder- DVR (DVR4-4575), two FHD surveillance cameras (PRO-T853) with a 1080p resolution and a 500GB storage, as well as the two 60 feet BNC cables (18m), a mouse, a power adapter with a splitter, an HDMI and an Ethernet cable, plugs and screws for mounting, theft deterrent stickers and a Quick Start Manual. It is very easy to set up and comes with everything you need for the installation.
Video quality is really good outdoors in the daylight and better than OK indoors and at night. But it will suffer a little with the regular HD 720p Pro-T835 even when you play with the contrast and sharpness settings, if you are planning to add two more cameras, go for the FHD version Pro-T853. The motion detection and weatherproof are not mentioned in the product specs. 500GB storage is not a lot but you can certainly upgrade it. You can not really have very high expectations from this basic model at such a low price level. You may also want to check out the alternative models if you wish to pay a little more but this one seems to be good value for money.
