Swann Smart-Series home surveillance system

swann-dvrSwann should be a familiar name to many by now, as it is a global leader in DIY security monitoring. This time around, Swann has just revealed its new Smart-Series. The new Smart-Series will be able to offer home and business owners with a reliable, DIY security solution. This particular system will merge wired video surveillance alongside access to wireless smart home technology in an effort to deter break-ins and detect intrusion. It will not cost all that much in return with an asking price of $499.99 a pop.

The Swann Smart-Series home surveillance system will come with a quartet of weather resistant, 1080p HD wired cameras with 80° viewing angle as well as powerful night vision up to 100 feet. Users are able to see crystal clear video of activity, faces, and license plates among others, all the while letting them enjoy the luxury of set and forget recording for more than 80 days from the four cameras onto the pre-installed 1TB hard drive.

As its name depicts the Smart-Series, this is a smarter security system with the ability to hook up wirelessly to other security devices regardless of whether it is your home or business premise. The pack will come with a couple of Window/Door Alarm Sensors which will notify you if movement is detected, and then triggering the Outdoor Siren with flashing light to help deter break-ins.

Apart from that, if users are not at home, they may also be notified of intrusion on their smartphone and conveniently see and control their home or business with live viewing on Mac, PC and iOS and Android smartphones and tablets thanks to the free app. You can further expand the Smart-Series with additional Smart-Series and SwannOne accessories, including wireless cameras, alarm sensors, and smart plugs, among others. It will also play nice with over 100 smart devices and brands, such as Kwikset, Yale and Assa Abloy Smart Locks, Philips Hue Lighting, Samsung SmartThings, and Nest Thermostats. Time to increase your peace of mind with Swann’s Smart-Series!
