DW Mobile Witness App streams live video to a VMAX IP Plus NVR over the Internet via a 3G/4G connection

Digital Watchdog, provider of digital recorders, surveillance cameras and related management software, announces the release of the new DW Mobile Witness mobile application for iOS smart phones and tablets. The DW Mobile Witness app turns the camera on a supported smartphone or tablet into a surveillance camera that can be viewed and recorded with a Digital Watchdog VMAX IP PLUS PoE Network Video Recorder (NVR). 

“Imagine, a security officer on patrol can now transmit and record his point of view using his smartphone as a security camera, like a personal ‘black box,’” said Mark Espenschied, Director of Marketing, Digital Watchdog. “The recording of what he sees is in synchronisation with the video from the other video cameras connected to the system. If there is an incident, the video evidence is available from all available angles.” 

Digital Watchdog VMAX IP PLUS PoE NVR for SMBs

VMAX IP Plus, the PoE NVR for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMB), keeps getting better. The DW Mobile Witness app joins Three-Minute Installation, CCIP password-encrypted camera streams, thumbnail search, performance monitoring, system analysis and easy PathFinder Peer-to-Peer Mobile Access as dynamic features that set the VMAX IP Plus apart from the competition. 

There must be an available channel on the VMAX IP Plus NVR. Enter into the app the URL of the NVR, the NVR’s User ID and Password. If the phone or tablet is connected to the Internet (via 3G or 4G), the device’s camera now appears on the NVR and is being recorded. The app is now available on the Apple App Store. Support for audio will be added in October, with an Android app coming in November.
