On the market for some home security cameras and came across this pack. Seems like a decent deal but can't comment on its quality.
I have had them for few months and they are solid. App is good with the playback and stuff. Works with google. Overall good product.

Much better than Duckk security cameras. They're certainly not all they're quacked up to be.
Quiet day there @PainToad? ;-)
Sorry, was my post too fowl?
does it need to plugged into ethernet to view remotely or can you connect it via wifi ?
Plugged in, no built-in WiFi.
A bit confused sorry. How do we see it on google assistant of there is no wifi? All the google hubs etc are wifi based so how would it communicate?
You plug it directly into the thing that makes the wifi.
@f4te: They're all hooked up to the matrix
@f4te: Cool thanks
I can't believe they are still selling analogue cameras in 2021!
(converted to digital in the DVR box, but the cameras are totally analogue.)
I know it still works well, and convenient for those wanting to upgrade an old system without replacing the cabling.
But who'd have thought?
I know, but 6x5MP+DVR w/2TB for $399.
Just the HDD by itself makes up 20% of that price!
I don't suppose there is a web interface on this DVR? (that does not rely on Flash!)
Having to use their apps can be very limiting at times.
I put a Swann system into my business 16 years ago, it was replaced when it died after 12 years. It was replaced with a $189 system that had 4 BNC cameras but an upgrade to HD(not full HD). The quality is good enough to identify people in 'embarrassing mistakes of property appropriation' (which it has had to do on a few occassions).
Several months ago I acquired a deal on one of the 5MP Reolink systems with POE but have not had it installed due to the requirement by our Insurance company to have it installed by a qualified electrician. I am seriously considering buying this and selling the Reolink system as I can install this one by just pulling through the current cables. So the Reolink system is going to cost several hundred dollars more to install - after costing twice this system to buy..
I have seen many people review Swann stuff poorly but I have never had any issue. The app runs on pc, android and apple all fine. I have the current box attached to a wireless extender with an RJ45 port so it communicates to my router and then out to the big world.
The only issue I have with this deal is Fkn Kogan - I hate them…
Pull cables? Can’t you just use the existing ones?
Current system only has 4 cameras so will have to pull through cables for the other two - I wasn't real clear on that.
I have an old analogue CCTV system by KGuard. Can I use the existing old BNC cables?
