This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

These could be had for about £500 ish when Maplins closed but never been cheaper since.

These are the Power Over Ethernet variants not the cheaper analogue ones. Great quality image (better than HD) and well worth considering if you are in looking for a CCTV system.

Aparantly there is firmware mods around to convert them to Hikvision but I never bothered.

Cheaper option availbe from one Amazon seller but only one in stock so I listed the Amazon price as they should honour it if it sells out.

Can be had cheaper if you find a refurbished system on eBay but these are new and come with additional 2 years warranty in the box.

Features:

  • Resolution: 5MP
  • Night Vision Distance: 40m
  • Viewing Angle: 70°
  • Camera Usage: Indoor/ Outdoor - IP66, Weatherproof
  • NVR HD Size: 2TB
  • Cable Type: POE (NVR)
  • App: HomeSafe View, View 24/7
  • Warranty: 24 Months

Viewing angle seems very narrow on these. After a 2 or 3 camera set up but with only a 70 degree field not sure a 4 camera set up here would get the same coverage
These or Qvis cameras? The ones that look dome shaped?
Can you answer a few questions on this subject please.
These are power over internet you say so are the cables ends rj45? Are the anologue variants BNC along with the seperate power supply to each camera and nvr.
I use poe for my cameras to my nas but as i said using the cat cable (rj45) i think its called.
Does this include everything that is needed to set up? I've been looking at purchasing a CCTV package and have been looking at some installation videos and from what I've seen the kits with POE require an ethernet switch between the cameras and the NVR.
You need to know the resolution, frame rate, and bit-rate for all 4 cams recording at the same time before assessing NVR.

All we know is that it records at 15 fps which tells us little. Is that for all 4 cams or just a single? What about mulyiple cams recording resolution & bit-rates?

Be very wary of systems which don't specify these details

As an example, here's the spec for my Hikvision DS-7216HUHI-K2:

I got both (bought seperatly)

These if wall mounting, done snapped if going under ever or in a ceiling.

RJ45 sockets on these not the cheaper BNC and yes they can be powered directly over Ethernet via POE.

I was debating using my qNAP, bit this is better as a standalone system and means I don't have to risk a HDD failure also taking out my data which is far more important than CCTV footage.

Everything you need is in the box unless you need longer cables, but they are just standard Ethernet cables so buy lengths to suit. The ones that cone with them I think are 15 meters each.

Thanks for that, which are better quality, the Qvis dome or these?

Sorry for the poor spelling, typing on a phone with autocorrect is infuriating.

Dome if mounting upside down and bullet if wall mounting.

No difference in quality as they both have the same sensor.

In sunlight the bullet has a small hood which helps but it can occasionally have a spider setting up home so may need dusting once in a while.

I'm not sure your picture does tell you the information your requesting for your system. It just talks about a single camera, no mention of multiple camera!

With the Swann, NVR systems you can change the FPS for each camera and also the recording bit rate, you can have it set to CBR (Constant Bit Rate) for where there is loads of movement (front of the house) or VBR (Variable Bit Rate) for the back of your house looking into the garden where you may not get much change most of the time so no need to record huge amounts of data.

You can also encode in H.265 for better compression quality or H.264 for more backwards compatibility.

It applies to all cameras. There are various models & each is capable of running the specified for the camera limit for each dvr. The limitation will be 10 Mbps across all cameras

You can set the bit rate for each cam at whatever you want....That's not to say the NVR is capable of encoding all cams at the specified bit-rates. This is where understanding of the overall total bit-rate capability of the NVR is vital

Yours is a DVR, this is effectively an IP camera in so much as the signal is digitised at the camera end and sent across as packets. i.e. an NVR system.

So the overhead in compressing the signal is less as the signal received at the box is already digitised and the only thing then left to do is compress it to either H.264 or H.265

I had my system running with all 8 cameras and never ran into a problem I don't see any mention of a max overall bitrate cap and certainly never experienced any unusual artefacts.

If it was reducing the bitrate then I would notice it one or more of the streams but I didn't notice anything.

Look on the forums and plenty of people have reblown the firmware to make these Hikvision systems. That's exactly what they are just re-branded.

You've obviously made your choice and are happy with it. For others that are debating what to choose, I would say that this is one of the better ones, a recent software update allows you to even connect the 8MP cameras to it (although they are expensive).

Some useful information here. Thanks for the advice everyone

Is hikvision over coaxial?

im after a PoE cctv set up with 2-4 cameras, would hikvision offer this
yes there are many varying models to suit requirements

Hi, what’s hikvisions equivalent version to this Swann model

Hi, what’s hikvisions equivalent version to this Swann model


Nearest equivalent would probably be DS-7608NI-E2/8P
Thanks, do you know if the hikvision doorbell would work with this,
The wifi version would be standalone anyway and the POE one I wouldn't know, sorry.
Thanks for the help

Hi do you know if I could successfully wire into the house electrical system using a power line adapter and an injector using this system. I’ve a camera I’d like to mount on my powered shed.
I'm not sure if you could or not, depends on the data rate being sent back by the camera. Using a variable bit rate would help which the swann cameras do support and you could also reduce the resolution if needed.

All depends on what data rate you get on the power line adapters.

On top if that you will also need to get a POE injector or get a power line adapter that supports POE otherwise the camera will have no power.
