Swann DVR4-Pro-Net Monitoring Kit


Unfortunately, we've all heard stories of the police being too busy to fully investigate home and small business burglaries; these days it's up to us to be more proactive in the protection of our property and belongings

At the heart of Swann's DVR4-Pro-Net monitoring kit is a 250GB digital video recorder (DVR) that is able to simultaneously monitor the four high-resolution, infrared-activated indoor/outdoor cameras that come as part of the kit. The cameras themselves...

Good cameras, great value


Easy to set up ; Surprisingly good live image quality when you attach a VGA monitor ; Latest H.264 compression yields better results in less space ; Excellent support

Remote viewing over network requires Internet Explorer and unsigned Active-X control ; Manual full of poor grammar, instructions incomplete in some areas

Awesome Package


Even though this was a very wide angle camera setup the systwm was nice and for a store or single story home this will work awesome I think. The different setting or record is a nice feature also(it doesn't eat up your HD so fast) and well worth the...

Item comes complete and very easy to set up. The cameras are very good and even better at night. I bought this set to place around our newly remodeled house and wired everything before hand. the system worked flawlessly, but it was not what I needed

The cameras come with a fixed lens and need to have a stronger 8 or 12mm lens for langer distant objects. I put this up on the second story section of the roof and everything was really small so i need cameras with more zoom

Beats having nothing.


Best Buy for the money. If you want a state of the art setup be prepared to pay 10 times the amount. When this item is set up correctly it will "Catch A Crook" for ya. Can only blame yourself for poor placement of the equipment.

Compact, Easy To Set Up

Good Choice for the Money


Look, it only cost[$] for camera and recorder. what do you want? spend $2000+ and you'll get a better picture. it records the date and time the picture was taken. when you download the 2GB SD card (minor additional cost necessity) your computer will...

I bought this after our office was broken into twice in two weeks. It is supposed to be infared but it won't pick up anything in the dark. The camera will start recording when the light are off but you can't see anything so the infared doesn't work....

Over priced piece of junk


I bought this to put out side but as soon as I opened the box I did not like the ordinary phono connections for outdoor use. I ended up putting it in a decorative bird house indoors. I do not see anything great about this product. Video is not clear...
