The SwannEye HD security camera is very easy to set up, I was able to set it up without any problems and I am not technically minded at all. Images look good in HD quality and infrared vision just as good for night views. If motion is detected, it will record a few seconds of footage onto the SD card. I would have liked it to record images for longer. You can also take pictures and record video from the SwanEye app. The built in microphone and speakers are loud enough to have two way conversation remotely. The software/app that can be installed onto laptops/desktops or mobile phones is a let down. It is slow to respond or freezes sometimes.
