The Swann DVR4-1500 D1 4-Ch DVR With 500GB & 2 x Pro-540 Day/Night Cameras is a basic indoor/outdoor surveillance system with a four-channel DVR and two indoor/outdoor day/night weatherproof cameras. The DVR features a pre-installed 500GB HDD so you can begin recording immediately, and the inputs for four cameras allow you to add available cameras to the two Pro-540 cameras that are included so you can expand your system up to four cameras as your needs grow.

The DVR features over thirty days of continuous recording with four cameras onto the installed 500GB HDD. The units default settings provide for twelve days of continuous recording. You can set the DVR to record continuously from all inputs, or set a schedule for individual inputs. The unit also features motion-detection capabilities that can be set on individual inputs, and can be set to trigger recording and to email notifications to you. Settings also include pre-record and post-record settings that are useful when combined with motion detection triggered recording. The DVR 4-1500 connects to your network so you can access it from a computer from anywhere you can get an internet connection, as well as with a Smartphone or tablet with the free downloadable SwannView Plus App.

Two Pro-540 cameras are included. The Pro-540 camera captures sharp surveillance video in all lighting conditions. It features a wide 73° viewing angle, and records in color throughout the day, and black and white in complete darkness. The camera features an IR filter for daytime/color recording. When the light levels drop, the IR filter automatically disengages so the camera can capture IR images. The 24 IR emitters permit the camera to record images up to 65' away, depending on the IR reflectivity of the subject. The IR LEDS operate at 850nm, which is invisible to the human eye.

The camera comes installed in a bullet-type housing with an IP67 weatherproof rating on an adjustable stand. The power/video cable runs from the camera through the inside the mounting stand. This protects the cable from weather damage and discourages vandals from casually cutting the cable. The standard definition video signal is carried by a single wire for easy connection to a monitor or DVR system. The camera is easily mounted to a wall or ceiling, and includes suitable mounting hardware.

DVR4-1500

The DVR features 4 composite video inputs and a single audio input.
The Ethernet port is used to connect to your local network. The two USB ports are used to connect the included mouse for local control of the unit and also for firmware updates or connecting available USB external drives with the FAT32 file system.
The DVR features an OSD menu system for setting up the system
You can control recording settings for individual inputs or all inputs simultaneously. Recording settings include:
Using the free SwannView Plus App you can use your select iOS or Android device.
      • Manual: overrides default recording settings.
      • Normal: records continuously
      • Schedule: allows you to set a schedule for recording functions to be active
      • Holiday: allows you to define periods of time with an alternate recording mode. You can define up to 32 holiday periods, assigning a name, start and stop date to each period.
      • Motion: starts recording on detected motion. You can set the sensitivity levels for the motion detection. You can also define a specific area of the frame to be used to trigger the recording.
      • Privacy Mask: allows you to define up to four areas of the frame per input to mask. The part of the frame that is obscured by the mask will not be displayed or recorded and motion in that area will not be able to trigger recording.
      • Pre/Post-record: allows you to set how long before or after a motion detection event occurs to record for.
The system features two streams that are always active. The Main Stream displays on an attached monitor or on the local network, and is always D1 resolution, although you can adjust the frame rate, quality (low, medium, high). The Sub Stream is displayed over an internet connection or via the app. You can adjust the resolution, frame rate and video quality of the Sub Stream.
You can set the DVR to overwrite the oldest recordings when it runs out of space on the HDD.

Pro-540 Camera

NTSC/PAL switchable.
Recording resolution of 650 TVL.
3.6mm lens provides a 73° viewing angle.
The IR filter engages during the day to provide clear color images.
When the light levels fall below the minimum required for color recording, the IR filter automatically clears the image path and the camera switches to black-and-white recording using IR illumination.
24 on-board LEDs and IR cut filter offer a night-vision range of up to 65'.
The IR emitters operate at 850nm, which is invisible to the human eye. However a faint red glow coming from the front of the camera may be visible localized around the front of the camera, this is a normal occurrence with 850nm LEDs.
Automatic exposure ensures accurate image reproduction even under varying light conditions.
The IP67 aluminum alloy housing suits indoor and outdoor applications. The IP67 rating indicates that the housing is impervious to dust, and can withstand submersion in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. So the camera should be protected from dust and water damage during normal use. Note: the camera is not an underwater camera, it is designed to be mounted on ceilings or walls.
Cable is threaded through the stand for safety and protection from vandals.
Plug into your DVR for recording, or a monitor for viewing.
Suitable for home or business surveillance.
Can be installed to overlook doorways, yards, parking lots, hallways, storage areas and other critical areas.

                I recently bought this system along with additional Dome cameras for my new business location. I love how I can monitor the location from my phone very easily. It's only been one week but so far this has been a great security system!

                      I BOUGHT THESE CAMERAS TO CATCH THE THEIF WHO KEEPS BREAKING INTO MY CAR AT NIGHT. THE PICTURE IS CLEAR DURING THE DAY BUT AT NIGHT YOU CANNOT MAKE OUT WHO SOMEONE IS. IVE ALSO HAD TO SEND BACK ON CAMERA BC ON TV IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS SNOWING AND THERE WERE LINES GOING ACROSS. IT WAS CLEARLY DEFECTIVE NIGHT VISION. THE OTHER ONE AT NIGHT IS BETTER BUT I EVEN SENT MY HUSBAND DOWN STAIRS TO DO A TEST RUN AND I COULDNT RECOGNIZE WHO HE WAS ON THE PLAY BACK.
                      WITH THAT SAID, I THINK ITS GOOD DURING THE DAY AND MAYBE INSIDE AT NIGHT WOULD BE BETTER. THE PLAY BACK ON DVR, BEING ABLE TO VIEW IT ON YOUR IPAD AND IPHONE IS ALSO A NICE TOUCH. I WOULNT BUY IT FOR THE NIGHT VISION.

                      Comments about Swann DVR4-1500 D1 4-Ch DVR With 500GB & 2 x Pro-540 Day/Night Cameras:

                      Takes ages to set up, as usual the instructions leave out important details.
                      When no video picture shows on tv screen and all connections checked, no trouble shooting in guide to handle it.
                      Go onto Swann site and likewise, search name as it appears on back of dvr..comes back NO RESULTS
                      that says it all. Poor support when you need to set up security.
                      No reason it cant be simpler, have to keep dvr only in a specific place in home as wires will not reach cameras, or it will be too far from monitor tv, plug ins etc. Alot of frustrations, as if they never tested this with "ordinary' non hi tech customers.
                      Get a security company to install these systems rather than try to do it yourself with Swann.Never again.

                      Needed a bit of help and there tech support was so helpful and professional. The cameras are clear just a bit hard to get the sensitivity right to not email you 500 times a day. Make sure you get a extra email for the swann

                                  I considered higher end DVR/NVRs using IP cams, but the resolution (650 TV lines), ease-of-use and price of this system are just amazing. I actually bought the smaller system DVR4-1500 (4 channel) and then promptly bought the 8 channel for another property. Their apps (SwannView Plus) are great as well. You can see a live view, and also review motion-sensitive footage right in the app on iPhone or iPad (not sure about Android). The only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to get a view via the Internet without using an app.

                                              Bought this to install at one of our apartment buildings for security. The cameras produce excellent images, color in good light and monochrome with infrared in the dark. Everything was easy to install, it came with everything needed, and connecting it to the internet for remote monitoring was simple to set up. The Android phone app is excellent - I can monitor problems wherever I am. Have to watch data usage, however, since leaving the Android app on constantly uses 4G/LTE bandwidth.
