Dahua Remote View
Dahua remote viewing app is simple and does not require Port Forwarding of routers which greatly simplifies remote viewing. Further, it is a direct outbound connection from the NVR / DVR to the mobile device and does NOT route thru a remote server in a distant land like many others.
OnGuard includes unlimited support of this service and all aspects of Video Surveillance within our Silver and Gold Support plans.
