Swann Communications, a provider of security monitoring solutions, announced the USB 2.0 DVR Guardian, a compact, portable system that turns any notebook computer into an advanced surveillance system capable of monitoring any home, office or retail space.

The Swann USB 2.0 DVR Guardian is easily installed by simply plugging it directly into any computer’s USB port. The DVR supports up to four channels, so the user can choose to display and record live video from one to four cameras. With an easy to use graphical interface, the USB 2.0 DVR Guardian can be programmed for recording at a specified time, set for motion detection or set up to auto e-mail a notification to the user’s e-mail account upon motion activation. Furthermore, the entire security system can be viewed and controlled remotely via the internet. Swann’s latest DIY security solution offers flexibility in terms of viewing options; users are able to view their security system through their PC and remotely via the internet and mobile phone.

“Since the USB Guardian records directly onto the computers hard drive, managing recorded data is a breeze. All files are organized with an index of date and time stamping so the user does not have to waste time tracking down the event they are looking for,” says Guy Pithie, Swann Communication’s Vice President North America.
