Rated 2 out of 5 by Milton Image in daylight is good, totally washed out at night; poor tilt capability
Good image quality under good to low lighting. Installation should be easy.
Extremely poor image quality under no lighting. Image is all washed out such that even large black items are barely visable. A moving person looks like a very faint ghost and may not be detectable if not moving. Also, tilt seems to stop at about 10 degrees. If mounted under a eve, camera can't be aimed straight, or near straight, ahead. Documentation doesn't match what the OSD (On Screen Display# shows. Technical support was sympathetic but not helpful.
Don't buy this camera unless you will never have a totally dark environment. This camera is not representative of Swann products.
I returned this camera and brought a similiar camera with the Sony Effio DSP. It too has the same poor night vision characteristics. I have several other IR cameras and their night vision range from acceptable to surprising good #from a 0 IP camera). I suspect the Effio DSP may be designed for low light levels, but not no light.
