The PV-500 Neo Pro is the newest portable Wi-Fi DVR from LawMate, featuring a new locking din plug for a strong camera connection to the DVR.
Like the previous model (PV-500HDW Pro), this DVR offers a Wi-Fi connection via Smartphone to the App, allowing you to live monitor the video feed and take snapshots through your smartphone using the App, as well as configure device settings.
The PV-500 Neo Pro is the latest and most advanced model of the PV-500 Wi-Fi DVR series with an LCD screen. The reinforced military-grade dim plug system is newly implemented, which prevents any signal interruptions due to cable movement. This makes it ideal for covert operations and ensures a stable connection no matter where the unit is located.
Almost everything stayed the same regarding the Wi-Fi DVR including full product specifications. However, as the camera-to-DVR connection has been reinforced, the new cameras are not compatible with the old DVRs and vice versa.
The DVR has a 3' LCD Touch Screen which remained in high demand even after Lawmate's Wi-Fi line with in-App live monitoring was introduced.
This makes this device operable in multiple ways; via the App, via the remote control (PI-RF60 Remote Controller), via the LCD screen, or via the cable controller (comes with the accessories).
In addition to its many features, the PV-500 Neo Pro has full HD 1080p resolution at 30 FPS and can record for up to 160 minutes in 1080p with the included BA-2200 battery, or up to 400 minutes with the BA-4400.
The DVR can be used as a standard DVR without the connection to Wi-Fi or manipulation via the App, however, it can also be used as a covert LawMate DVR while activating the recording or snapshots via your smartphone.

Reinforced dim plug for stable connection
This military-grade plug for the CAM to DVR cable and connection guarantees that signal issues are a problem of the past. Interruptions cannot occur anymore, no matter if you are moving while recording, or if you have hidden the unit in a hard-to-reach place.
Now it is well tested and we know that the Wi-Fi connection is ideal for indoors, as well as short-distance outdoors covert operations. The signal can reach through a couple of rooms, and it also works on the outside where it reaches up to 100 m.
The distance depends on the place where your router is, and the strength of the signal.
For coverage of great distances, we recommend an IP camera, where you can monitor the live feed from anywhere in the world once you have set up the device.
The Controller Cable
Allows you to use the DVR while it is in your pocket or hidden elsewhere (handbag). It is easy to use and offers multiple functions.
Plug in the Controller Cable into the Control port.
To turn on the device, slide the controller toggle downward and hold for 3 seconds. The device starts recording instantly. To turn off the device and stop recording, slide the controller toggle downward again and hold for 3 seconds.
To turn on Wi-Fi, slide the controller toggle downward and hold for 1 second when the Controller Cable is turned on. To turn off Wi-Fi, slide the controller toggle downward again and hold for 1 second.
