  • Cloud Recording FAQs
    1. What is Cloud Recording?
      Most Swann Wireless and Powered Wi-Fi Cameras store video clips in the secure cloud for a rolling 1-7 days. You can access those clips at any time for viewing and/or downloading.
    2. How is Cloud Recording different if I subscribe to a Secure+ Member Plan?
      Members get to store more clips for longer in the cloud. You will enjoy 60 days rolling of clips and still images (depending on your device) saved to Swann’s secure cloud instead of the usual 1-7 days rolling cloud storage.
    3. How are the days of rolling cloud storage calculated & what’s 'fair use'?
      Swann Wireless and Powered Wi-Fi cameras are not designed for continuous recording. They are intended to specifically record true motion around the camera with minimal false triggers. 60 days is calculated based on 'fair use' of up to 200 clips of 10-60 seconds duration each day and camera.
    4. What if I exceed the ‘fair use’ terms?
      Swann Wireless and Powered Wi-Fi cameras are not designed for continuous recording. They are intended to specifically record true motion around the camera with minimal false triggers. If you exceed the fair use quantity for the upload of clips you may experience delays in uploading or downloading clips. Furthermore, where Swann deems this use to be excessive, it may, at its option, reduce the camera sensitivity so that each camera is recording fewer false events.
    5. What is device backup?
      Some Swann Wireless and Powered Wi-Fi Cameras are able to backup clips onto the camera for a limited time where a network connection has become interrupted. Once the network is restored, the clips stored on the camera are uploaded to the cloud and can be accessed like other clips
    6. How long can a camera record as a local backup?
      Cameras have very limited local storage. Depending on the clip duration and frequency, typically up to 2 days of local backup is available.
    7. How to I access local backup?
      Local backup cannot be directly accessed. The idea is that the camera provides this service while its network connection is interrupted. Without a network connection, the camera cannot be accessed. However, once the network is restored all backed up clips are uploaded to the cloud and can be accessed using the Swann Security app ‘Playback’ section.
    8. Are all Swann devices compatible with the Cloud service?
      No. It is only included in Secure+ plans for wireless and powered Wi-Fi devices. It is not compatible with wired systems, although some wired systems have the ability to save to Dropbox or network as part of their free offering. The Tracker Security Camera is not compatible with cloud recording nor Secure+ Member Plans
    9. How do I access clips saved to the cloud?
      Via the Swann Security app on your mobile device you can retrieve clips stored in the cloud by day and hour.
    10. Are clips any length?
      Clips are only as long as your device will allow, typically that is no longer than 60 seconds per clip.

      Your Swann Wireless Camera or Wi-Fi Camera can sense the heat and movement vehicles and pets to send an alert or notification to your mobile device.
    2. Will Face Recognition be included as part of subscription on all devices?

      No. Only powered Wi-Fi and wireless devices are compatible with these alerts for subscription. However, wired systems are also able to receive some alerts as standard due to their cameras’ True Detect heat and motion sensing.
    4. Will I receive alerts automatically if I subscribe?

      Yes. Within the app’s settings menu per device.
    7. Will the camera be triggered by my pet or a small animal like a mouse?
      No. You can vary the sensitivity of the activity detection.
    8. Does my camera recognize license plates?
      No. Vehicle recognition is based around an algorithm around the shape of the vehicle.
    9. How does package detection work?
      Package detection uses an algorithm to detect the shape of packages/parcels/envelopes and people to alert you when an item has been moved to or from your premises.
  • Rich Notifications FAQs
    1. What are rich notifications?

If the device is not subscribed to a Secure+ Member Plans within 6 months of purchase, Extended Warranty will not apply and only the standard 12 month warranty (from the date of purchase) applies.
    2. How does subscription affect Swann’s standard manufacturer’s warranty?

    4. Is there a process for warranty claims?
      Yes. As outlined on Swann.com, extended warranties are handled as part of Swann’s standard warranty claim process. You need to retain a copy of your proof of purchase to make a warranty claim.
    5. What do I do to claim extended warranty?
      If you are a member of a Secure+ Member Plan for the device in question, you fill in the online form to claim.
