What are the benefits of DVR WiFi for covert audio and video surveillance?

One of the most popular video recorders with audio and integrated spy cameras, or additional spy cameras that can be easily attached to the recorder, are the ones using WiFi Direct technology, or as we used to call them - WiFi Direct Recorders. WiFi Direct, for those who are unfamiliar, is a widely used technology allowing devices to establish a direct peer-to-peer connection and communicate directly with one another over WiFi without the use of a wireless access point or a router. All modern smartphones and tablets nowadays have a built-in WiFi Direct functionality that allows them to connect to other devices directly. The process of establishing the connection is rather simple—devices just need to support the technology and be close to each other. An added convenience of this technology is that many devices that use it have smartphone apps through which they can be controlled and managed.

The WiFi Direct Recorders available on the market differ by brand, quality, look and feel, and purpose. In most cases, you get what you pay for, meaning less expensive products tend to be made with lower-quality materials and won't last as long or perform as well as those made with higher-quality materials. We have chosen reliable brands to be part of our offering and are always open to suggestions. The easiest way to determine whether a spy camera recorder uses WiFi Direct technology is to browse its specifications. On SpyShopEurope.com you will find all the specifications of the devices on the product page and the bottom page in a pdf file. We usually use the phrase "WiFi" in the headline of our spy equipment to point out the ones using WiFi Direct technology to make it easier for the client to find the spy gadget he/she is looking for quickly and efficiently.

It is important to understand that price and quality are often inversely proportional meaning that higher prices equal higher quality and reliability.
