Swann DVR4-2600 kit is four cameras worth of remotely-accessible home security overkill

We’ve seen IP cams before, inexpensive ones like the DCS-930L from D-Link that get the job done with no frills, rather fancier ones like the Logitech Alert system that offer a premium feel — at a premium cost. But nothing quite like this. It’s the Swann DVR4-2600, a system that comes with four separate cameras, each offering a “high resolution” VGA that are about 10 years past a time when VGA could reasonably be called “high resolution.” They do, at least, offer 65 feet worth of night vision and all-weather functionality. There’s also a 500GB DVR included that can be connected directly to a TV or accessed remotely from a plethora of mobile apps covering everything from Android and iOS to Windows Mobile 6 and Symbian. You can get e-mails whenever your prisoners guests move and, the pièce de résistance, the kit includes four theft deterrent stickers. If those don’t keep the crooks away, maybe the rottweiler* will. Full details in the PR below.

*Rottweiler not included.

D-Link DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera review

After we reviewed the DropCam Echo a few weeks back and found ourselves generally unimpressed, we received an e-mail from someone at D-Link saying something to the effect of: “Dude, you have to try out our thing, because our thing is totally better than their thing and costs a heck of a lot less too.” We took them up on that offer and, while unfortunately D-Link’s thing has a much less catchy name, DCS-930L Wireless N Camera hardly rolling off the tongue, the sub-$100 device does indeed live up to its billing — for the most part.
