    Excellent Quality and Value

    I purchased the 4980 Pro Series Swann DVR to replace an older Swann model. Although some reviews indicated issues with this setup, especially the Home View App, I found this model to be higher than expected quality and very easy to set up. I unhooked my old Swann DVR and just connected the wires to the new one, using my existing cameras, and then followed the instructions to download the Home View App and I was done in less than an hour. The picture quality even with my old cameras is excellent. It's been about a month with no problems and I'm extremely happy with this Swann product. I'm looking forward to changing out the old cameras to the new 5mp cameras which should provide super clarity. I'd recommend this Swann DVR to any do it yourselfer. The new Swann DVR's have improved immensely and I'm glad I chose to stick with Swann.

    installation is fairly easy as long as you have easy access. I purchased three of these systems for my rental houses. One house was vinyl-sided and I was able to "stuff" the wires along the roof line, completely hidden. the other houses are multi-story wood sided and I had to tack up the wires. More time consuming but looks fine. The software was fairly easy to setup, and settings can be copied from one camera to the rest of them with a single click. The app works well for remote access. One downside is that the DVR needs to be plugged in to your internet router via ethernet cable - no wifi capability. But in my opinion this is a good thing - more reliable speed and connectivity.

    Still Learning It

    I decided to go old school on my security monitoring system. I felt this package offered the number of cameras I needed for secure coverage of my house outside. Granted I did have to run wires, but that actually helped reduce the demand on the Wi-Fi. For my needs at the moment, this is the better solution that is still cost effective. I will continue to watch the industry grow in this area and hopefully see prices drop with new face recognition software becoming part of the norm.

    This camera set comes with all that you need, with the exception of a drill, to set this up yourself. With some good cable management, this system is easy to set up. Best of all, you have control of your footage without paying a monthly fee for the privilege of seeing the footage of your own house.

    I was referred to this product myself. After seeing the system in use, I went ahead and gave it a try myself. I was not disappointed, as it was super simple to set up and use. I like it so much at my business, that I am going to be purchasing one for my house now.

    This replaced an older Swann system and the upgrade was worth it. Cameras have great resolution/picture and the DVR functionality is superb.
