Where do I position security cameras?

Most Swann security cameras have night vision and are robust enough to mount outside. Choosing the right location and how many cameras to include are important decisions for any home or business. Security cameras are like another set of eyes, able to capture blind spots and vulnerable areas, like entrances. They also play a valuable deterrent role to deter unwanted activity including theft and graffiti.

Smart Analytic Features

Smart Search easily finds recorded incidents by searching a specific image area

With Smart Search you can select a specific area of the image to search for movement within the recordings. For example, if something was stolen during a particular hour’s footage, you can highlight the position of the stolen object – for example, a laptop, bike or bag - and Smart Search will mark the timeline where it detected motion around that specific area.

QuickShot lets you quickly review recordings from multiple cameras

QuickShot is a time saver to find what you want from recorded footage. This feature lets you search all channels in a given period of time and then select the recordings from the search results to play as a slide show all in the same screen. Once you see an event of interest, such as someone roaming around your car, you can then go into that specific footage to watch the event.
