    It took some time to get the wire ran to each camera. Since they
    were not wifi cameras. I liked the idea that they didn’t really on wifi.
    My wifi throughout the house is not that good. After Power up the NVR recorder.,
    I could not use the Swann App. I had to connect to a TV to get a picture.
    From that point, it wanted to do an Update. The update went fine.
    So you need a TV connected
    to get it setup up. All the cameras were detected.
    I checked out the camera features. With motion I had it turn on the spotlight. I liked that feature. It is a great deterrent for intruders.
    The camera resolution was great as long as you didn’t zoom in.
    I also tried the speaker and microphone from afar. It was ok.
    Night vision was ok, I have one camera in the back yard and it was hard to see the back wall.
    Some of the NVR features face recognition, Line crossing, would not work with the cameras that came in this package. what a bummer.
    For the most part, it is a great system. With an App that works well also.

    I was looking for a security system beyond a simple doorbell camera and this one caught my attention. I liked the number of cameras, the amount of storage space on the harddrive, and the fact that installation didn’t seem like it would be too tough.
    When I opened the box, there was a ton of stuff and I kind of wondered what I had gotten myself into, but once it was all out, it was easy to make make a plan and put it all in place. There is a fair amount of cable provided, but folks with longer runs may need to shop for a bit more. With a drill, a screwdriver and some expanding foam it was easy to get the cameras into place around the outside of my house to monitor the four main entry points.
    I haven’t tried to watch the images on the TV, which is certainly and option, I’m happy enough to simply use the app to keep tabs on things. The spotlights are good, but out of consideration for my neighbors I haven’t tested the alarm feature as it seems like it would be pretty loud. The DVR box isn’t much bigger than a standard cable box and should blend in anywhere if it’s sitting out like mine is.
    TLDR: Overall, I am very happy happy with this product. Installation is easy enough for anyone with some basic tools and the quality of the image is great!

    This product was extremely easy for me to install. The one wire per camera makes install very simple. The wires in my box were very tangled and took quite a while to unwind. Once I straightened that out it was a breeze. The only hard part on my end was crawling around in the attic. This is not completely necessary thanks to the long cat5 cable. I just preferred a clean no visible wire install. The dvr setup was even easier than the camera install. I plugged everything in and hooked it to my modem. After a quick firmware update I created an account and was looking at my brand new cameras on my tv. I don’t have a 4K tv but the quality of the cameras were much better than expected. The optional light and siren is a great feature. They are a bit sensitive but I’ve tinkered with the settings enough that I think I have them to a reasonable setting. Overall I am very satisfied with this product and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a home camera system

    This was the camera system I’ve been waiting for since it’s PoE. I researched camera systems for the last couple years before buying this one. I purchased CAT 6 wiring instead of using the included CAT 5E since most of the runs from the cameras to the NVR was over 60′ and I read multiple articles that it was worth upgrading the wiring with longer runs. I’ll do this Pros vs Cons:
    Pros: Excellent picture and video. You can really zoom in and get great detail, especially through the NVR. The audio it’s capable of is amazing. I was able to hear a neighbors conversation from a good 50′ away no problem. Motion sensors are very sensitive. There are so many ways to tweak settings that it really lets you customize your experience. Cameras are made of sturdy construction and make it so you can really get any angle you want once installed. Installation was easy.
    Cons: That customizable experience I talked about takes hours to tweak. There are a lot of settings that you can only adjust on the cameras 1 by 1 rather than using the same settings for all. Gets very tedious. Motion sensors are very sensitive. I know I listed this as a pro as well since you won’t miss anything, but boy these sure catch everything. I have 3 off the front of my house and have played with so many different settings but still these will record when car lights illuminate the grass at night. Then there’s a domino effect since I have them set up to fire the LEDs when motion is detected at night. 1 camera will pick up lights from a car going by which triggers it’s LEDs. When those LEDs fire, the next camera “sees” those lights and fires up it’s own. You can only do a limited number of things on the mobile app vs the what seems to be infinite number of things you can do when going through the NVR. Once connected the NVR needed to do an update but would not connect. Over an hour waiting for customer service the solution was to skip the update at first. Basically I had to turn the NVR back off and disconnect the ethernet. Then turn it on and set it up. I haven’t had a problem since then and everything updates weekly. My last gripe is that you cannot delete any single files from the NVR. Your options are to either format it to scratch or let it fill and overwrite.
    That seems like a lot of cons compared to pros for a 4 star rating but at the end of the day it’s everything I wanted it to be. Hard wired with excellent picture.

    Upgraded from a 1080p Swann system to this 4k and loving the picture quality! Setting up online was easy, but the app (Swann Security) could be improved. NVR is also a little noisy. Overall, I’m happy with the quality of the product. Camera’s are not cheap plastic like some of the other cameras out there. It’s heavy metal!

    After having several standalone security cameras, I decided to get a real wired security system that was based on Power over Ethernet (PoE). I am so glad I got this system. This is a really professional security system, just without the off-site professional monitoring (which by the way saves about $50-$60 in monthly fees). Seems like at least one of these complaints sounds like it’s written by a competitor. I can view the cameras just fine, I can hear audio and the video is super clear. While setting them up does take time with running the wires, the feeds show up on your monitor as soon as you connect the cameras to the recorder. I love having the option of continuous recording or recording only events. I also love the spotlights, for as small as they are, they are brighter than I expected.

    The cameras and NVR seem to be high quality. I found that the installation instruction in all areas are lacking. There isn’t good information on how to use the waterproof connectors to attach the ethernet cables. There isn’t advise on what to do if provided cables are not long enough. There isn’t any advice on best locations for mounting cameras. There isn’t any information or easy to find links on how to use the system when installed. The downloadable android app also could use better instructions. More and better instructions for the average homeowner installer would help a lot.
