New Swann Cameras Offer (Really) High-Resolution Video


Are you still impressed by run-of-the-mill, Full HD 1080p video? It’s time to think bigger and clearer. Swann’s newest offerings deliver even greater resolution alongside an array of features to elevate your surveillance capabilities.

Swann’s NHD-818 Bullet Camera packs high-quality components into a small package to offer 4MP resolution during the day and at night, thanks to built-in IR LEDs around the lens. This camera will provide you peace of mind that your home or office is secure. Mount it indoors or outdoors; the housing is IP66-rated, meaning it’s dust- and water resistant and suitable for harsh weather conditions. Installation couldn’t be simpler—simply plug the included 60' Ethernet cable into the camera and the other end into your NVR to transfer data and provide the camera with power via PoE technology.

Similar to the camera above, the NHD-819 Turret Camera has a built-in microphone to pick up nearby sounds and provide you with a complete visual and aural surveillance solution. It has a slightly wider field of view at 80°, as opposed to 75° on the bullet camera. With either of these cameras, you can quickly view live video and customize settings through the free mobile app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, wide dynamic range (WDR) and backlight compensation help both cameras produce clearer images in environments with varying lighting conditions.

Swann didn’t stop at 4MP, however. The Platinum Digital 8MP Bullet Camera can capture super high-quality resolution video up to 3840 x 2160. This will provide clear playback during the day and at night, from up to 100' away. Covert EXIR IR LEDs surround the lens to provide night vision, even in completely dark environments. This model sports an even more durable housing, with a rating of IP67, to provide full operation in subpar weather conditions. Whichever camera you choose, you’ll be sure to get high-quality images no matter the lighting or the weather.
