What is PathFinderTM
DW's PathFinder is a peer-2-peer (P2P) cloud service that allows you to securely connect to your VMAX® A1 Plus and VMAX IP Plus recorders remotely from a mobile device using the DW Mobile+ app, without the need for memorizing repetitive network information, creating a DDNS or having to make special rule configurations on most consumer routers. It uses a cloud service to perform the outbound connection, making a secure direct connection between the recorder and mobile app to transfer data. PathFinder lets you view live video, control your cameras and recorder settings, search and playback video anywhere.
