VMAX IP Plus™ 4-Channel PoE NVR with 5 Virtual Channels
Model: DW-VP9xT4P
The VMAX® IP Plus™ is an easy to use to use PoE NVR that allows you to go from power up to monitoring in less than three minutes! The NVR offers unique features such as CCIP™ camera encryption and internal systems diagnostics, keeping your system healthy, secure and up to date. Combine with the DW Witness™ app to turn the camera on a smartphone or tablet into a surveillance camera that can be viewed and recorded on the NVR.

Available with 4 PoE ports (expandable to 9 cameras), the NVRs can record and manage single-sensor IP cameras up to 5 Megapixel, with 80Mbps maximum throughput.
  • VMAX IP Plus 9-Channel

3-Minute Installation
The entire system can be setup and configured in less than four minutes from power up. Using the user-friendly Startup Wizard, configure the NVR’s main functions, locate and register all your cameras and set them to record in less than four minutes and with no need for technical background!
DW Witness™ App
The DW Witness™ app for iOS® and Android® KitKat instantly turns your smartphone or tablet into a video surveillance camera. Press the button on the app and start transmitting live video to your VMAX IP Plus™. It's a "black box" for personnel on patrol. (REQUIRES CURRENT VMAX IP PLUS™ FIRMWARE.)
CCIP™ System Encryption
Camera streams are protected when a user ID and password are used with an NVR. The additional CCIP™ (Closed Circuit IP) encryption is activated when the VMAX IP Plus™ system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time, using the encryption's user ID and password. The result is a secured and encrypted RTSP stream that can be read only by the requesting VMAX IP Plus™ NVR.
System Monitoring and Analysis
Monitor your complete system, including the network, communication, CPU and performance locally on the NVR for real-time analysis of your NVR, cameras and complete surveillance solution.
