    Let me start by saying this is my second swann system, first one was a 720p 4 channel system, lasted only 2 years. I decided after some research to try the 4980 with 8 cameras..decent reviews...well....it’s been only 6 months and it’s the worst. Two cameras are totally gone and the play back is almost none existent...the cameras are digital zoom....very pixelated. This set up took two days to install and when it was up and running in the first month it was unbelievable. Now I learned from past set up to get the warranty, but now I have to spend more time and effort to get this back up and running. Why can’t swann get things together, they’ve been around for a while, fix the app and make a system that’s worth the 600$ you pay, come on...I will never get another swann and will never recommend them to anyone...I think the reviews on this site are false and misleading....too bad because it seemed like they may have gotten it together....will try a lorex or another brand

    It’s been only 2 weeks i got this swan security surveillance system and one of the camera already went out , it shows lines on the screen sometimes at night, Sometimes when I unplug the camera power and plug back on it works for a while and get lines again. Daytime works with no problem

    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.
