The Swann SWDVK-425504C Camera Security Monitoring System (4-Channel) consists of a 4-channel DVR4-2550 digital video recorder and 4 ADS-180 day/night cameras. Featuring a 500 GB hard drive (supports up to 2 TB), the DVR4-2550 supports up to D1 resolution, and frame rates of up to 120 fps (combined). It features manual, motion, and schedule recording modes, and supports multiplex operation. Recorded videos are stored in H.264 format that helps reduce video file sizes without compromising on the quality and integrity of images. Videos are watermarked with date and time for authentication purposes.

Recorded videos can be viewed locally, over the internet or on a 3G smartphone (using the 'SwannView' app). You can transfer the recorded video to a flash drive via the USB port, or send it to a server using the network interface. UPnP (Universal Plug n Play) technology allows the DVR to be automatically configured to a router (having UPnP capability). The DVR can be controlled using a mouse or by remote control. Power is drawn from a 12 VDC power supply.

The ADS-180 day/night camera, featuring a 1/4" Super CMOS color sensor and 6mm lens, delivers enhanced quality imagery at resolutions up to 400 TVL. It is equipped with 30 IR LEDs that have 10,000 hours of shelf-life, and provide a viewing range of 33' (10m). Minimum Illumination of 0 lux helps provide clear images even in low-light conditions.

Automatic Gain Control adjusts the signal strength to maintain a constant brightness level. Backlight Compensation adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object being captured is in front of a bright light. With the Day/Night mode, the camera automatically switches between color and B&W according to changes in ambient lighting. The camera features a rugged aluminum and ABS plastic construction, and draws power from a 12 VDC power supply.

      Enclosed product manual was out of date and incorrect/misleading in regards to how to network this advice. Tech support was prompt to answer my call and quick to fix the problem. I was given new firmware to install, instructed to disregard the original manual and a PDF addendum to explain how to properly network the DVR. The revised instructions were very different than the instructions in the enclosed manual. I wasted a lot of time because of the out-of-date manual that was enclosed.

      Pros: Affordable, works as described, hardware is easy to physically assemble. Helpful tech support. Cool features.

      Cons: Expect to call tech support. Product has software glitches that require a firmware update. Enclosed manual is incorrect. Image quality is grainy.

        We purchased this Monitoring system for our business. The price was really good for the price.
        Installation was uneventful...we called the technical support and they guided us. Picture quality is great and the dvr works great, too. Highly recommended

          B & H offered this product for $ less than some competitor websites like @. I received the product quickly and the item was exactly as described. I installed the system myself which took about 6 hrs since I had to drill holes and run the wire. Its a neat feature to be able to download the Swann app and be able to view your home security anytime during the day.

                        The install of cameras and DVR is straight forward. good length on cables =100ft each. Low light is very limited with these cameras <=25ft for good viewing.
                        DVR allows motion detect and privacy areas to be setup. Buy extra cables and BNC to F-type adapters will help install.

                          I easily installed the entire system in our office in one night. I found that most things in set up were common sense and the items I had questions on were detailed in the manual. We have been using this for a couple of weeks now and have already recooped the expense for the initial purchase. Great bargain, get it today!

                              Product arrived quicker than expected.
                              I was able to run the wires, and have the system almost up and running in one night. I just need to purchase a longer cable to connect it to my computer in another room.

                              The only downside is that the cable from the camera does not run thru the mount to conceal it.
                              I also recommend using thread tape to secure the camera to the mount. The threads on the mount easly round off and flatten out.

                                  Enclosed product manual was out of date and incorrect/misleading in regards to how to network this advice. Tech support was prompt to answer my call and quick to fix the problem. I was given new firmware to install, instructed to disregard the original manual and a PDF addendum to explain how to properly network the DVR. The revised instructions were very different than the instructions in the enclosed manual. I wasted a lot of time because of the out-of-date manual that was enclosed.

                                  Pros: Affordable, works as described, hardware is easy to physically assemble. Helpful tech support. Cool features.

                                  Cons: Expect to call tech support. Product has software glitches that require a firmware update. Enclosed manual is incorrect. Image quality is grainy.

                                  I have bought a few camera systems & returned them from local stores in the $300 price range. The swann SWDVK-425504C is by far the best quality I have purchased. I will be keeping it for sure.

                                  The camera quality is great.
                                  It was Easy to to setup, good quality hardware.
                                  Nighvision works awesome.
                                  The DVR is nice and small & easy to setup.

                                  Only thing I wish is that they made it with built in wifi.

                                    I use this system to monitor my property over the internet and the system works fine.
                                    Easy to install and operate.
                                    Moving between cameras for set up or recording can be tricky and needs some practice.
