The DW-VF8500G VMAXFlex 8-Channel, 500GB HDD DVR from Digital Watchdog is a full-featured dedicated surveillance DVR with complete pentaplex operation, giving you access to all its functions, including live view, playback, backup, and all administrative functions, without having to stop recording. It has selectable recording resolutions and supports Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras that can be controlled with the included remote, using the included mouse to control an on-screen virtual joystick, or remotely from a computer or smart device.
The completely customizable system has multiple recording modes, including continuous, scheduled, and motion-activated. Further available customizations include user-specific accessibility and individual camera functionalities. Restrict user accessibility to DVR functions ranging from live-view only to full administrative authority. Program camera feeds by naming each one, block live-view and playback from showing on monitors, and define motion-detection zones and sensitivities.
Connect the DVR to the Internet via an Ethernet port for remote usability. Live-view, playback and administrative tasks can be performed using web-enabled computers, smart phones or tablets. Free apps are available for Android, iOS, and Blackberry. Up to five recipients can be programmed to receive email alerts when pre-determined activity occurs.
