Swann’s latest product line is a series of Plug & Play security cameras that are inexpensive, easy-to-setup and feature-rich. The ADS-445 SwannEye HD Pan & Tilt All-in-One IP Network Camera (their marketing department is a bit wordy … but it’s certainly accurate) offers a long list of features. The most important for travelers include:
Record and save 720p HD video and 1280 x 720 HD pictures
Memory card slots (MicroSD for the Plug & Play and SD for the Pan & Tilt) so recordings can easily be transferred to computers or other devices
Images and video can be saved directly to your smartphone or tablet via the SwannEye HD™ app
The 350 degree horizontal and 100 degree vertical motion of the Pan & Tilt camera can be remotely controlled by your smartphone or tablet via the SwannEye HD™ app
For remote viewing from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, the free SwannEye HD app allows users to live stream or view recorded videos/photos from their camera back home.
There’s also an option to enable the SwannEye app to send an e-mail notification when motion is detected by the cameras.
Lastly, straight out of the box, syncing the camera with your smartphone or tablet is super easy and network-free with a unique QR code that comes with each system. Simply plug in the power cable, scan the code and go.
