SVAT Security

Seems like good prices since they come with the hard drive. How do these compare to the Zmodo brand?

You call those “Specs” for the “Ultra Resolution Night Vision Cam” ??? What kind of imaging sensor does it have? What are the dimensions? What is the lens aperture? How many TV lines? What is the minimum lux? “Ultra resolution imagery” is NOT a “spec”, neither is “easily connect to DVR” etc. So – sorry Woot, but PASS. Try and do better next time.

That’s what I thought! Specs=camera can see you!

Here’s what I found on the product site.

Crisp and detailed video you can rely on
Your security system is only worthwhile if you can actually see the person stealing from you. SVAT® cameras are equipped with 600 TV lines of resolution.

SVAT® cameras are equipped with night vision that automatically activates. Twenty-four infrared ClearVu® LEDs provide crisp and detailed night imagery as you monitor from up to 75 feet away, even in complete darkness.

Thieves know dismantling a security system is a good way to get off scot free. But they’ll be disappointed with SVAT®. Each camera’s cable runs through the cable mount and then directly into the wall, leaving no part of the cable exposed. Your footage will be secure.

If you click on the Specs tab for this camera on the product page you get “Specs Coming Soon”


Howdy. The specs weren’t originally available from the manufacturer but we now have them. The sale has been updated. Thanks for your patience.

Greetings Wooters!

SVAT company rep here to answer your questions. Fire away!

Welcome! We appreciate you taking the time to answer questions.

I picked up the 11030 kit. Any chance you’ll have any of the indoor cameras here on sale?

On the 11030 8 channel set it says in the specs it is only a 4 channel dvr. I am confused. Also where are these units on your website so I can look up the manuals. They don’t seem to be listed anywhere on your website?


The cameras included can be used indoors or outdoors. The only difference between an indoor camera and outdoor is how weather-proof it is.

The ultra resolution cameras in this sale can be used indoors or outdoors.


The 11030 kit includes an 8 channel DVR. Unfortunately manuals aren’t available on our website (being updated) at this time but one is included in the box.

I would like to know what the difference is between “Super Resolution” and "“Ultra resolution” Since both say that the cameras are 600 TVL and the DVRs record at D1(704 X 480)?


It states that it will with work with Macintosh and Safari. I could not find any manuals at the factory site for these systems and the ones I did only show Windows options.

Will this work with the latest Mac OS and Safari v6.x (not the iPhone/iOS version)? I know some other DVRs will work with Safari but only v5.

I have two SVAT cameras that has worked well outside for nearly five years and one wireless one that has worked fine for the last three years.


Super and Ultra resolution are simply descriptive words to point out that the cameras are 600 TVL which is very good, especially at these prices!


Thank you for considering another SVAT camera system!

The DVRs in this sale will work with the latest Mac OS and Safari v6.x.

Analog sercurity cameras are going the way of the dinosuar. Save your money and get an HD IP camera system instead.

These SVT cameras have the camera lens mounted behind a glass shield, so are the IR LEDs. When the glass gets dirty or waterspotty, the IR light will reflect directly back into the lens and night vision will be useless. Any night vision camera worth its money wil have the camera lens isolated from the IR LEDs and an IR Cut filter.

OMG, another honest opinion on this, come on Woot, you’ve deleted my last three post because I basically said the same thing, are you going to delete his too? I’ve bought a lot of stuff from you and this is how you treat a loyal customer, by deleting his posts because he didn’t have something positive to say and boost your sales?

Another quality post, thanks for your honesty.

As long as analog systems are a fraction of the price of HD IP camera, they will continue to have a place.
The difference isn’t too bad with 1 or 2, but if you’re in the market for 8-16, it starts to go over the budget most are willing or able to spend.
I just ordered a 16 channel 8 cam system from the big A for 280, that gives me enough basic crummy cams to cover most areas, and leaves room to buy a few nicer ones for places that need better images, while keeping the entire project well under 1000.

Good point on the glass that covers lens and leds though, not the best design :confused:

I have one of these cameras. If you look closely at the picture, there’s a black plastic or rubber “ring” that surrounds the lens. This ring touches against the glass on the inside which isolates the lens from the IR LED’s surrounding it. Therefore, the IR light cannot reflect back into the lens from the inside. Only IR light that reflects off objects outside the camera can reflect back into the camera. The glass on the camera can get dirty over time, but that applies to any camera.
