It has capability to output to one external speaker (purchased separately)...

  • Q: 2-Way Audio?  (4 Answers)

    By Buckshot 

    • Best answerNo, no audio, unless you use a separate microphone (there's one audio input and one audio output on the back, RCA plus). The cameras themselves don't have microphones or speakers. However, there are several cameras on Bestbuy.com that DO have microphones that will work with this DVR. You'll only be able to use one camera with a microphone (there's only one audio input on the DVR) and the cameras that do have it are 1080P (they won't be as clear as the cameras that come with this kit). Look up SWPRO-1080FLB, SWPRO-1080ZLB, SWPRO-1080FLD, and SWPRO-1080ZLD. (I work for Swann by the way)

  • Q: Can you move camera cameras around to see things from different angles.  (2 Answers)

    By Ghivox135 

    • Best answerThe DVR has the ability (Pan Tilt Zoom), but the the cameras don't (you could buy 1 separately). Yet, You would be surprised at the wide angle and crystal clear view you get with these 5mp cameras. PLUS the phone app and computer apps, you can view it from anywhere. I'm Very Happy.
