The Swann Enforcer 4 camera package is currently a steal at $599. What you get in this package when broken down is miles ahead of the competition.
Firstly in the box you get:
- A 4 channel dvr with 1 trb storage and a mouse to operate
- 4 1080p enforcer cameras
- 4 x 18 metre cables
- 1 Ethernet cable
- 1 HDMI cable
- 2 power adapter and a splitter
- Some screws, plates and plugs for mounting and some stickers
Now I have been sent this to review so no secrets. I set this up as a review unit so I only installed 1 cam on the outside of the house. I didn’t want to run cables all through my roof then uninstall everything. Setting it up is very easy but I cannot stress enough that I would set it all up before running any cables. Get it all working and trouble shoot with everything at your fingertips. The setup wizard was easy to follow and presented no problems for me. There is plenty of support on the Swann website and resources available.
These are currently on sale at Amazon for $399 https://amzn.to/3u5IgXO
Video – we are talking full 1080p here. It’s crystal clear and has a handy zoom function. That 1080p gives you confidence you’re not going to get grainy footage of someone stealing your stuff. It’s going to be clear footage for getting number plates or recognition of people.
Next we look at the security features – We have Sensors for spotlights and flashing lights. Police coloured flashing lights which is enough to make any tweaker freak out. We also have the night2day function which allows you to see bright vibrant colours day or night. We also have the ability to turn the sensors on or off and set the trigger zone for notifications. You can disable the lights and sirens or have them set to come on at certain times. It also has true detect which has built in heat detection to give more accurate alerts.
Now with the Swann app you also get the ability to view your property from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. I get alerts on my mobile and check straight away. But not just for crime but to see the delivery, then a quick call to someone to get the package before someone else steals it. Or to make sure the kids are home from school ok. You can download the clips and save them to your phone. My only wish with the app is that i could change the notification settings in there and the sensor zone.
My top tips for using the Swann Enforcer security System
- Set it up before you run the cables
- 2 get a longer lan cable
- 3 fine tune your motion detection settings
- Make sure you set up the times of day you need the system offering full protection
- Set it to 1080p
Overall impressions are good, if your looking for a reliable product that has a strong brand, is feature rich and competitively priced then i think the Swann Enforcer is a product to consider.
