FYI - these are the newer Swann cameras with PIR sensors.

As per the Swann compatibility list this kit may not work with the other models of Swann IP PoE cameras w/o the PIR sensor ( example the 5MP and "4K" models recently posted here )

If anyone knows more please feel free to share with us.

If you want extra cameras, Swann has some decent prices for additional cameras which should work with this kit.
( look for similar appearing models and check that the cameras are IP PoE cameras and listed as compatible with this kit )

Note we still have not identified Hikvision OEM cameras which may match these. We do suspect that Hikvsion maybe the OEM based on a similar appearing analog / coax model.

Update: Camera manual states
"This camera is the perfect addition if you already have a recording solution (NVR) & need extra surveillance. It can
only be used in combination with Swann's Platinum Digital HD NVRs^"

@matt2000 will these cameras / NVR work with smartthings?

I see these only come with 60 ft cable.. is that standard or is 100 foot per run more the standard?

This seems like a good deal, right.

Hi Chris007,

Here's the Swann page on that deal:
https://www.swann.com/us/swnvk-885804

Currently OOS at Swann - that's often a good indication of value.

Each "4K" IP PoE w/PIR camera appears to be selling for $120
https://www.swann.com/us/swnhd-885msb

So, 4x $120 = $480... NVR + 2TB HDD for $120...

Looks like a good deal.

Compare with a Nest IQ outdoor - at $300 each camera, or 2 cameras for $600

I think anytime you get a decent brand IP PoE kit with 4x "4K"/8MP cameras for <= $600, that's a good deal.

We're still waiting on some reviews on this kit.

In terms of cat5e/6 cable - I normally do not worry about using the cables in the kits as they are normally cheaper cables ( CCA garbage ) which I really do NOT want to use nor invest time installing, so I go w/quality bulk cable.

60ft vs 100ft - seems like 60 ft is fairly common in some of the better "value" kits.

Again, if you're going to spend a weekend DIY cabling, go for better quality bulk cable.

The camera mic was what nudged me to buy this system over other brands. There's also a great review posted on YouTube that showcases the features and includes some actual footage.

This will be my first security camera system, but the specs seem good for the price. I'm looking forward to installing this within the next few weeks.

HI John,

Cool, let us know how you like it when you get a chance to bench test it.

This is also available at microcenter, amazon, and fry's for the same price.

If in NY and NJ seems to be tax free from Swann marketplace on Amazon.

Just checked the manual: BE AWARE max bitrate is 6144kbps per camera. Same as my 1080 recorder/cameras although this is H265 so it will be slightly better/more efficient. Long story short, quality will not be "4k like". Current Dahua Pro DVRs can record 15-30mb/s. Of course for much higher price.

Also, not true PoE so adding more cameras in a year or two would be a risky gsme.

Hi djsvetijo

I have found it hard to get decent specs from Swann, and have been unable to confirm what IEEE specs this camera may meet. What documentation where you able to find on it? ( I looked at the downloads for both the camera and NVR - and while I liked the NVR's manual it still was short on specs )

The lack of descent specs and knowledge of other similar sets speak for itself. You get what you paid for.

With that said, it is still a good value and I wonder if I should get it myself, especially with a 20% Google Express coupon. If I get true 4k NVR from Dahua, that's $400 by it self and cameras are $150+ each. Add $100 for hard drive and it's over $1000.

The main problem with this Swann will be if one of the cameras go out in 2 years or you want to add more cameras - it might be impossible to find them.

There is a "review" on YouTube but it looks to be paid/internal. I noticed the frames from the camera (upper left on his 4 grid) are the same as on the Swann website image comparing the day/night. Notice the 3 tiny trees and someother matching elements.

Hi djsvetijo,

I think this is a very new product.

If this is a Hikvision OEM product I would expect it to be decent, it maybe a proper IEEE PoE spec'ed product - hard to say at this point w/o more data.

Certainly the price point is off to a good start.
