PV-500 HDW Feature focus: 


New Wi-Fi Technology 

While PV-500 HDW can be operated just by using buttons on the recorder or with a standard wired remote controller that comes with the device the biggest feature update is Built-in Wi-Fi Module that allows the device to be remotely operated and monitored. 
Live feed on a tablet/cellphone LCD screen allows easy setup and monitoring unlike was previously possible. Wi-Fi technology in practice provides easier to set up and cheaper yet faster and more stable and persistent connection compared to 1.2 / 2.4 GHz RF TX/RX or 3G modules.

Easy to use  

In order to use the PV-500 HDW, one needs to know is how to connect your cell phone to a Wi-Fi connection and how to use a cell phone app. 
Standard Lawmate exchangeable batteries and a new safety function that stops the device from turning on when the SD card is not inserted (to prevent accidental battery drainage) among other things make PV-500 HDW easy to use high-end Mini DVR.
