    Don't buy this camera if you want to view on your phone. The app is not working. And Swann don't care about it. They just want your money only.

    Easy to set up. Works well so far. App can be a little inconsistent but has worked for the most part.

    Quality of equipment is good. Choosing the angle/position of camera view leaves a lot to be desired Quality of picture on TV is good. Quality of picture on App leaves a lot to be desired. Wiring/cords provided were plenty to cover my business from front to back, which isnt a small space by anymeans. Overall decent, may upgrade in the future.

    The cameras are great. When viewed on my TV. It's a pain to install and set up, even with a skilled home repair or IT background. It's not intuitive at all. Make sure you are 100 percent on the location of the camera. You will have to drill holes in your walls and those don't fill back in very easily. If I could have used the iOS app before purchasing this system, I would have passed it right up. The app is extremely bad. Yes, I get push notifications but it just takes me to the live view and not the video clip that triggered the alert. And good luck trying to figure out how to view the clips. There is no manual for the app. Most of the time I have to manually connect to the DVR system in the app for it to connect. And in an emergency situation, that takes precious time. If I could return this today, I would. But, if you are looking for a wired system that is always recording motion (by heat not just visual motion), this is a good system. If you are looking to use the system for alerts or anything that has to do with viewing on a mobile device, I would pass this up. I don't know of a wired system that works the way the wireless ones do. I should have gotten the Arlo like my sister did.
