Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model numbers of the "...swann security camera...Emerson flat screen tv..."

Would there also be a DVR / recording device? ...and/or at least a camera switcher/processor?
