DW Cloud is an innovated feature of DW Spectrum that changed the way of connecting and sharing a security system. It allows users to access the systems anywhere via Internet without complicated network configuration (ex: port forwarding).

With DW Cloud you can share your system to another DW Cloud user in few clicks via email accounts.

DW Cloud now supports all types of DW Spectrum - including Desktop client (Windows, Linux, MAC), Mobile APPs (iOS, Android) and Web Clients(Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Edge, IE).

The users now need only their email accounts, then they access all their DW Spectrum systems from anywhere, quickly switch between DW Spectrum systems, and sharing the DW Spectrum systems with other DW Cloud users!

DW Cloud helps the administrators to manage the system with unified accounts, and eliminate the difficulties on network configuration. The connectivity issue can be easily solved by introducing DW Cloud now.

DW Cloud Requirements:

It requires at least one server which is in the DW Spectrum could access the Internet. 

The server which can access the Internet is suggested to be the main entrance to the system.

DW Cloud uses UDP Hole Punching technology to maintain Cloud Connect omitting requirements to forward TCP ports with firewall settings. 

Check your firewall policies and allow the following ports to communicate with dwspectrum.digital-watchdog.com

#80- HTTP port.

#443- HTTPS port.

#3345- DW Cloud applications. 

#NOTICE - DW Cloud won't be able to establish the Client-Server connection in case if the users are using routers work in Symmetric NAT mode.

DW Cloud requires both DW Spectrum Media Server and Client to be able to reach some ports of main DW Cloud Portal.  I.e. firewall must allow outgoing TCP and UDP connections from your server PC to dwspectrum.digital-watchdog.com ports.  You may need to configure your firewall policy to pass the ports
