Digital Watchdog released the new DW Mobile Witness mobile application for iOS smartphones 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 synchronization 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.”

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, according to Digital Watchdog.

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.
