The LawMate PV-CHG30i covert DVR has multiple charging heads that are easily interchangeable and compatible with different types of Smartphones. While the previous models (PV-GHG20i for Android and iOS) were only compatible with Smartphones, the PV-CHG30i can be used with Tablets which allows for a bigger screen when monitoring the live feed. Like all Lawmate IP models, it offers access to the settings, live feed, and snapshot options, from anywhere in the world with Wi-Fi / Mobile network availability.
This fully functional smartphone charger can be set up to different resolutions (1080p / 720p / WVGA) and multiple recording modes (Auto/Manual/Motion Detection) while offering the overwrite function if you can not access the location for SD Card exchange. The CDS sensor at the back of the device automatically powers on the Infra-Red feature when it is dark in a room. A 32 GB SD card is provided with the accessories.
This charger is powered directly from the power outlet, which ensures continuous recording if necessary and ease of mind as there is no battery that can run out in the middle of recording. Besides continuous monitoring of the area the PV-CHG30i is placed in, it comes with three charging heads that correspond different types and models of smartphones, so from now on you will only need one charger.
This is a truly versatile device that will adapt to your recording requirements.
