BASIC SWANN Systems
Please be advised that if you are after a simple monitoring system, where you login and view what is going on, as well as some basic recording SWANN will do. However if you are after a system, that triggers on motion detection (with no false alarms) and sends you emails with images etc. Stay AWAY from ANY SWANN product. Don't be fooled by their good looking packaging etc. I was fooled and purchased two systems - BOTH have failed in delivering...
All SWANN systems have issues with their software and their more advanced configuring for trigge...ring alerts and motion detect. Their product is basic throughout their whole range. Countless support calls to SWANN does not help, and their software updates does nothing. Therefore their product has not performed as what they have specified. Look elsewhere SWANN is BASIC and nothing more. Don't waste your money with their more advanced products - it is all SPIN. Have been in the information Technology space for over 30 years and this product should have failed in the TESTING labs.

Unit is OK - review of footage close to impossible
This is a 4 camera security system that records to a control unit with hard drive. Its main selling points are 4K cameras/recording and remote control/viewing.
Cameras seem ok and once you get the motion detection set up seem to record OK. Unit is network enabled (cable connection only) and one of the selling points is remote viewing. Cat 5 cables are used for camera connections and these provide power, carry the signal and can control pan/tilt/zoom functions in ceras that have them.
Prior to installing I set up the system as was insta...lling the recording unit in a cupboard in a security mount and it needs to be plugged into a monitor or tv for setup. There are remote apps for smartphones and pc's I had installed the iphone app and had this working as part of the setup. 1st issue - the fan is really annoyingly loud - you couldn't have this in a living area.... say where a tv might be useful for playback ok for my install as the cupboard contains the sound.
