The DR-520.Wi-Fi is the newest addition to our RecordCam™ DVR line. It is a compact DVR system with a built-in wide-angle 170° CMOS camera, a 2.7" LCD screen for on-site playback and Wi-Fi. The wide-angle camera lens will be able to record almost everything looking out the windshield and is also equipped with night vision for better illumination during night time driving. The crystal-clear LCD screen allows the user to navigate through the systems multiple menu selections as well as playback any of the system recordings and the built-in Wi-Fi hot spot will allow the user to access their recordings through their Smartphone. The DR-520.Wi-Fi will automatically start recording as soon as the ignition turns on and will continuously record until the ignition is turned off. The system also has manual recording mode which when activated will keep the system recording until you press the recording button again to shut it off. The recordings are split up into individual three-minute files and are stored on the SD card. The system has it's own built-in 2.7" LCD monitor for on-site playback. You can remove the SD card and view the files from you computer at home or plug into your computer using the USB 2.0 connection. The DR-520.Wi-Fi also has a built-in HDMI output for high definition hook-up to an external LCD monitor. The built-in G-Sensor will force the unit to start recording if it picks-up sudden acceleration, hard braking or sudden movement from a collision. These recordings are stored on the SD card and locked automatically by the unit so that they cannot be over written by continuous ignition or manual recorded files. These files can only be deleted by physically removing the SD card and deleting them from your computer. For surveillance when you are away from the vehicle, the DR-520.Wi-Fi has a built-in motion sensor which will take individual photos when the cameras detect movement. The images are also stored on the SD card in JPEG format and are also locked by the unit with override protection. These images cannot be deleted unless the SD card is removed and plugged deleted from a computer. The motion sensor will provide the around-the-clock surveillance you need to catch anyone trying to vandalize or break into your vehicle. The IR night vision will also be activated with the camera when the motion detection is activated so you will get well illuminated images even at night time. Perhaps the most advanced upgrade of the DR-520.Wi-Fi system that sets it apart from the other RecordCam™ models is the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot which will allow the user to access the DVR system and view the recordings from their Smartphone as long as they are within range of the Wi-Fi hotspot. The system has a downloadable app on the iTunes store or Google Shop that can be used with your iPhone or Android™ Smartphone. Once the app is downloaded, the user can access their recordings using the smartphone. This way, you do not have to be in the vehicle to playback the recordings or retrieve the SD card from the system. The Wi-Fi distance is up to 50 Ft. so most users will be able to access the system from inside their home or from a small office building their car is parked right outside in the driveway, on the street or in a parking lot.
