It’s been almost a month since I bought the Swann Alpha D3C5. First let me say why I bought this system. I picked the system I could upgrade later with different cameras. The 8-channel capability helps in the future. Only having 4 cameras covers the main areas of the house I need at this moment. Later I can get indoor cameras that blend with the indoor atmosphere better or upgrade the outdoor.
The system was so easy to install the primary installation was done without reading the directions. Once it was installed I opened the book and finished hooking the system into the Internet. It took about 15 minutes for Internet service once I read the directions.
The only problem I have is the night vision. Again that’s why I bought the four-camera version. I did install some ultraviolet lighting to the side of the house. This adds to the night vision greatly without lighting up my neighbors’ bedroom. Be sure to adjust the cameras for night vision (brightness and contrast). Right out of the box they need some adjustment for the area you install them.
All in all a much better system then I first thought. A little adjustment to the cameras and the nice feature of motion detection I am VERY pleased. I hope to install the indoor cameras when the time comes.
