This CCTV system comes with a massive 2TB hard drive & 4 weatherproof NHD-851 security cameras built tough for the outdoors or indoors. See in the dark up to 30 metres with the camera’s powerful infrared night vision.

Due to their rounder & more discreet shape, dome cameras are ideal for those wanting to have security cameras that easily blends into its surroundings. Enjoy easy camera installation with Power over Ethernet (PoE) as each camera is powered via Cat 5 network cable connected to the NVR.

Instantly link your phone to the NVR

Once your NVR is connected to the internet, simply install the SwannView Plus app on your smartphone or tablet. Then scan the QR code sticker on the NVR to instantly start viewing the cameras on your device with Swann’s peer-to-peer SwannLink technology. See video.

View your home on your phone

You have peace of mind at your fingertips with our easy-to-install, free, SwannView Plus app. You can see the cameras live and play back recordings on your smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are in the world. Keep an eye on your kids or babysitter at home, and monitor your staff and business for productivity and protection.

Face detection to trigger alerts and automatic recording

The NVR can easily be set up to detect human faces within the image at certain times of the day to trigger recording and alert you accordingly. This gives you relevant information tailored to your needs and is ideal for restricted places where there shouldn’t be anyone roaming around at particular times.

Massive surveillance grade hard drive

The massive 2TB HDD is designed especially for continuous surveillance recording. Store months of recordings and easily transfer videos to a USB stick or download via network with no ongoing fees ever.

Weatherproof cameras built for any climate

Use them as outdoor cameras or indoor cameras as they are built tough to withstand whatever the weather throws at them: rain, snow, dust and hot days. With IP66 weatherproof rating and cables threaded through the stand for extra protection ensure you can rely on their performance, day in, day out.

Round dome shape for discreet surveillance

Due to their round shape, dome cameras are suitable for those looking for discreet security cameras that easily blend into their surroundings, without drawing much attention to them, such as installing them inside retail stores or inside or outside homes. Dome cameras are also harder to vandalize as they're difficult to grab and pull due to their shape. If you prefer cameras that are more visible to intruders, you may look at Swann’s bullet shaped cameras.

Clearer Night Vision with the innovative EXIR LED lights

Unlike conventional infrared LEDs which display light in a circular pattern that creates a ‘spotlight’ effect, each camera has twin EXIR LEDs that emit a rectangular pattern for a more uniform and even night vision image. Designed especially for security, EXIR LEDs reduce over-exposure at the central part of the image and reduce darker areas at the corners, allowing you to see in the dark like never before.

See everything day or night

No matter if it’s day or night, you’ll be able to see everything up to 100ft (30m) with the powerful infrared night vision. At nightfall, the cameras automatically switch to night vision and record in black and white, so that you're sure to record anyone roaming around your property even if it's 3 o'clock in the morning.

Easier Installation with Power over Ethernet

Installation is now easier than ever with the NVR’s Ethernet ports which allow both the video signal and power to run from the NVR to the cameras through the same cable. Simply run the included CAT5 Ethernet cables for each camera to the NVR and click it into place, the same way you would connecting your computer to a router.

See More & Protect More with Wide Angle Viewing

Swann’s NHD-851 cameras have a super wide 63 degree field of view. The wider viewing angle allows you to see a broader area you might otherwise have missed and is perfect for large areas such as yards, driveways, hallways, parking lots and more.

Super HD 5MP or 4K with HDMI cable

The kit also includes an HDMI cable for generating up 4K (8MP) video to your flat screen TV including LCD, LED TVs or monitors. The NVR also has a VGA connection for viewing up to 1080p Full HD on your LCD monitor or compatible TV with VGA input. VGA cable not included.

Record only what matters with Motion Detection

Motion Detection lets you select specific areas of each camera’s image you want to trigger automatic recording and alerts. This reduces the unnecessary false trigger recordings, such as cars driving in the street, birds & falling leaves. This ensures improved accuracy and also boosts the HDD’s storage capacity.

Smart Search easily finds recorded incidents in specific image areas

With Smart Search you can select a specific area of the image to search for movement within the recordings. For example, if something was stolen during a particular hour’s footage, you can highlight the position of the stolen object – for example, a laptop, bike or bag - and Smart Search will mark the timeline where it detected motion around that specific area.

Intrusion Detection auto records & alerts you

Intrusion Detection enables you to identify a potential intrusion and prevent it. You identify a particular area, draw a rectangle on the image and if someone stays within that area for a given amount of time, the NVR will start recording and will alert you. Ideal for using on parked cars, doors and business entrances. Usually, intruders have to spend time trying to break into a door or a car and this feature enables you to be proactive in preventing it from happening.

Camera Tampering Detection

Any security system can be vulnerable to attacks or vandalism. Tampering Detection will alert you if someone covers up the camera’s field of view or tamper with the video signal, this way you can catch intruders in the act before something bad happens.

Line Crossing Detection

Apply a rule on which direction your NVR detects motion to record and alert you. For example, you can draw a line on the door of a store and set up the NVR to only record people entering the store from 5pm, but not leaving the store. This convenient feature enhances accuracy for your security and is also useful for restricted areas, garage entrances and driveways, such as someone walking towards your house or jumping a fence.
