SmartHouse - - CES 2017 - Writ­ten by Jon Bragg

The Swann Wire­less Smart Se­cu­rity Cam­era cap­tures full HD video at a su­per wide 120 de­gree view­ing an­gle, with the high def­i­ni­tion 1080p cam­era able to cap­ture faces, li­cense plates and other im­por­tant de­tails day and night. Af­ter three months of use, the Smart Se­cu­rity Cam­era’s bat­tery can be eas­ily recharged with the in­cluded Micro USB ca­ble.

Swann has in­tro­duced heat-based PIR mo­tion de­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy, known as True De­tect, to en­sure the Swann se­cu­rity cam­era can re­li­ably cap­ture ac­tiv­ity with fewer false trig­gers, and it has the smarts to be able to alert users with push no­ti­fi­ca­tions via the free SAFE by Swann app, which can also be used to view a live feed or to play­back recorded video and au­dio on Smart­phone or tablet.

“Home own­ers and business own­ers are in­creas­ingly aware of the need for se­cu­rity to de­ter crime and safe­guard their fam­ily and prop­erty. How­ever, they want a se­cu­rity sys­tem that’s af­ford­able, easy to in­stall and it must be re­li­able,” said Jeremy Stewart VP Global Mar­ket­ing at Swann.

An­other se­cu­rity so­lu­tion an­nounced by Swann is the Ther­mal-Sens­ing HD Se­cu­rity Sys­tem, which in­cludes four 1080p ther­mal sens­ing mo­tion ac­ti­vated cam­eras with 20 me­tres of in­frared night vi­sion. The sys­tem also fea­tures True De­tect PIR state-of-the-art mo­tion sen­sors to help de­tect heat-gen­er­at­ing ob­jects, such as peo­ple, large an­i­mals and cars, while re­duc­ing false trig­gers from wind, leaves, rain, small pets and spi­der webs. With more re­li­able ac­tiv­ity de­tec­tion users can re­ceive re­li­able push no­ti­fi­ca­tions on their Smart­phone and con­serve hard drive space. Up to four ad­di­tional cam­eras can be added to the sys­tem.

Swann also an­nounced the 4K Ul­tra HD Se­cu­rity Sys­tem, pro­vid­ing greater im­age de­tail that lets users see cru­cial de­tails, such as num­ber plates and faces, even from a long dis­tance. The sys­tem fea­tures 4 ul­tra-high def­i­ni­tion 4K se­cu­rity cam­eras with IR cut fil­ters that pro­vide pow­er­ful night vi­sion up to 30 me­tres, as well as a weather-re­sis­tant rat­ing of IP66 mak­ing them suit­able for both in­door and out­door use.

Four ad­di­tional cam­eras can be added to the eight chan­nel sys­tem, and the in­ter­nal 4TB hard drive can hold over 150 days of footage from eight chan­nels. The Swan­nView Plus app, avail­able for iOS and An­droid, al­lows live view­ing and play­back on smart­phones and tablets.

A Su­per HD Se­cu­rity Sys­tem rounds out Swann’s CES lineup, fea­tur­ing four 5-megapixel cam­eras, that are 1920p or 2.4 times the res­o­lu­tion of 1080p, ca­pa­ble of

Among the line-up are a truly wire­less se­cu­rity cam­era with a three month bat­tery life and wired se­cu­rity sys­tems in­clud­ing ther­mal-sens­ing 1080p, 5MP su­per HD, and 4K ul­tra HD.

cap­tur­ing night vi­sion footage at 30 me­tres. Four ad­di­tional cam­eras can also be added to the eight chan­nel sys­tem, which fea­tures a 2TB hard drive that can record footage from eight cam­eras for over 80 days. Live view­ing and play­back is avail­able through the Swan­nView Plus app.

“The new range speaks to our con­sumers who have told us they want truly wire­less cam­eras that are easy to setup yet smart at the en­try level. At the higher end they want wired so­lu­tions that have re­li­able mo­tion de­tec­tion and push no­ti­fi­ca­tions and longer record­ing. And at the very top they want the sort of ul­tra HD im­age qual­ity they have come to ex­pect from their flat screen TVs,” Mr Stewart said.

“Our new so­lu­tions have taken this into ac­count and are about mak­ing se­cu­rity smarter and en­abling users to mon­i­tor their premises like never be­fore. It’s go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing year.”
