Swann puts the heat on with PIR thermal sensing CCTV cameras

Swann, a global leader in DIY security monitoring solutions, has released its Thermal-Sensing HD Security System which incorporates Swann’s new True Detect technology to reliably capture activity.

Home and business owners will no longer have to deal with false triggers due to wind or rain, or pets as its new passive infrared (PIR) sensors are optimised to reliably detect people, as well as cars, large pets and other heat-generating large objects.

PIR motion sensors designed for security coupled with Swann’s True Detect technology provides more accurate motion detection and minimises false triggers due to the wind, falling leaves, bugs and rain. In comparison to traditional pixel motion detection, the PIR motion detection also gives users over four times more efficient use of their hard drive space, by ensuring only important footage is captured, stored and reported. 

Jeremy Stewart, vice-president of Global Marketing at Swann, said, “This solution is ideal for monitoring homes, offices, small businesses and retail stores, to deter, capture and catch thieves, and cut the cost of crime. Home and business owners no longer must sift through hours of footage to find what they’re looking for. Thanks to our True Detect technology, the CCTV system distinguishes between genuine intruders and false triggers, enabling users to save valuable time and spend it on more important matters.”

The accuracy of the True Detect technology assures that app based push notifications are fewer and more relevant, reliably informing users as and when recording has been triggered. The HomeSafe View app delivers surveillance to an Android or iOS device so they can watch live and playback footage from any of the cameras connected to the DVR from anywhere in the world.

“Our HomeSafe View app puts CCTV monitoring, in the palm of your hands. To arrive at your home or business and find out that it has been broken in to can also put a great deal of strain on your life and finances. With the combination of True Detect technology and remote viewing capabilities, you can now react to a serious situation when it is happening,” said Stewart.

Swann has added various smart software analytics. QuickReview allows different events and periods of time from the same channel to be reviewed at once, while Quickshot improves playback and saves users time. It provides a time lapse of still images to be viewed from multiple channels at once, to track a specific event of interest from multiple cameras and quickly check a whole day’s activity.


The Swann Thermal-Sensing Security System uses the PRO-1080MSB camera which is supplied with a DVR.

The camera has 2MP, up to 1080p resolution, night vision to 15m, a 102° viewing field and IP66 weather proof rating.

The DVRs have 1TB internal hard drives pre-installed and, due to the True Detect thermal sensing technology, can capture over a year’s worth of the security events that matter.

Once purchased and installed, there are no ongoing fees.

The kits are available now priced as follows:

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
