Swann launches Voice Control via Google Assistant for 4K DVR Series

Swann has released 4K Ultra HD CCTV surveillance systems for home and small businesses across Australia. 

The wired, multi-camera video security systems include Google Assistant voice control, which allows users to see video from the cameras on their TV using simple voice commands.

Each system is fitted with Swann’s True Detect technology, which allows the cameras to sense heat from large moving objects such as people or cars, and send push notifications to the user, while recording to a local hard drive. 

True Detect eliminates false alerts from weather, rustling trees or small animals in the distance, so that users are only notified when there is a legitimate security concern, according to Swann. 

With 4K ultra HD image quality, users can see car license plates, faces, clothing colours, logos, tattoos, and labels on boxes. 4K also allows users to zoom in for close ups when live streaming and playing back recorded footage from each camera.

The cameras also have night vision up to 45m in total darkness and 60m in ambient light.

“The ability to effectively monitor and protect your home 24/7 is an increasing concern for consumers’’, said Jeremy Stewart, Vice President of Global Marketing at Swann.

"With the Ultra HD 4K Series of DVRs, we are catering to both the professional market and the home with the opportunity to stay connected like never before in 4K. Consumers are able to stay alerted when activity is detected using Swann’s heat-sensing True Detect technology, and see what’s happening hands-free using voice commands. It’s a powerful combination in the fight against crime!"

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
