Digital Watchdog VMAX 4 overview

  • 1Description

The VMAX4 4-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 up to 720 x 480 and display resolutions to 1280 x 1040. It also supports a Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera that can be controlled with the included remote, from the font control panel of the DVR, or using a mouse to control an on-screen virtual joystick.

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 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 a 10/100 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.
