Swann’s True Detect PIR Thermal Sensing technology detects motion by heat, such as from people & cars, to trigger recording and push notifications. This virtually eliminates false triggers, like plants moving with the wind, to only capture events with security relevance.

This 5MP Super HD security camera is the perfect addition to your Swann NVR-8580 to cover blind spots. The sturdy aluminium construction is built tough for the outdoors or indoors with IP66 weatherproof rating. The camera comes with a roll of 18-metre Ethernet cable for connecting the camera to the NVR.

See in the dark up to 40 metres with the camera’s powerful infrared night vision. The built-in microphone adds audio recording for that extra layer of valuable evidence to your surveillance system.

Due to their rounder shape, dome cameras are ideal for those wanting to have discreet security cameras that easily blends into their surroundings. If you're looking to have more visible security cameras, you may have a look at its bullet-shaped sister NHD-865MSB, which works as a deterrent to intruders due to its more visible shape.

Innovative True Detect Motion & Heat-Sensing
True Detect is a step up from the traditional Motion Detection technology. The camera has a PIR sensor, the same technology used in alarm systems, to detect moving heat-generating objects, such as people, large animals & cars, to trigger recording and alerts. True Detect eliminates false triggers from traditional Motion Detection, such as leaves falling, small birds & plants moving with the wind.

Accurate Push Notifications
Thanks to the high detection accuracy delivered by the True Detect Thermal Sensing technology, smartphone push notifications will be really relevant to the user, as notifications will only be triggered if a large warm moving object is detected by the PIR (passive infrared) sensor. This way you can know if there’s someone roaming around your driveway or backyard.

Crime Prevention: the true value of True Detect
Pixel-based Motion Detection tends to generate a lot of false triggers, such as plants moving and birds. If your recorder is set up to email you in every Motion Detection event and most of events are irrelevant, you’ll most likely turn the email alerts off, and when a real security incident happens, you’ll only find out when you get home.
With True Detect, Motion Detection is only triggered by heat-generating objects, like people and cars, which represent a real threat to your property. When an event is detected, you’ll get a push notification on the HomeSafe View app, allowing you to see the scene in real time and act swiftly to prevent any security incidents which could have had a much higher financial impact than the cost of this security system.

Audio adds another layer of evidence
Hear off-screen noises and identify voices by their gender, accent and age. Catch arguments and even verbal abuse to make sure your kids or elderly family members are being well taken care of by anyone assisting them.


Weatherproof cameras built for any climate
Use them as outdoor cameras or indoor cameras as they are built tough to withstand whatever the weather throws at them: rain, snow, dust and hot days. With IP66 weatherproof rating and cables threaded through the stand for extra protection ensure you can rely on their performance, day in, day out.


See everything day or night
No matter if it’s day or night, you’ll be able to see everything up to 130ft (40m) with the powerful infrared night vision. At nightfall, the cameras automatically switch to night vision and record in black and white, so that you're sure to record anyone roaming around your property even if it's 3 o'clock in the morning.

Easier Installation with Power over Ethernet
Installation is now easier than ever with the NVR’s Ethernet ports which allow video, audio and power to run from the NVR to the cameras through the same cable. Simply run the included CAT5 Ethernet cable from the camera to the NVR and click it into place.

Wide viewing angle for better protection
Swann’s NHD-865MSB cameras have a super wide 82 degree field of view. The wider viewing angle allows you to see a broader area you might otherwise have missed and is perfect for large areas such as yards, driveways, parking lots and more.

Round dome shape for discreet surveillance
Due to their round shape, dome cameras will suit those looking for discreet security cameras that easily blend into their surroundings. Dome cameras are also harder to vandalize as they're difficult to grab and pull due to their shape. If you prefer cameras that are more visible to intruders, you may look at Swann’s bullet shaped cameras.

Everything you need for your DIY installation
The pack is an out-of-the-box solution and includes all the items you’ll need for your DIY installation, such as 60ft (18m) cables, mounting screws with wall plugs, power adapter & splitter, operating instructions and even theft deterrent stickers to let intruders know your property is protected by Swann.
