What are the differences between P2P vs Port-Digger?
P2P requires you to re-configure at the physical DVR which requires a trip.
when (1) external p2p changed, (2) changed modem, (3) changed router, (4) Public IP changed, (5)someone closed the ports, (6)router itself flush the cache. these are the reason why it stops working frequently.
Port Digger has proved users during the 3 years of uptime 24 hours and 7 days
P2P is easily blocked, even low-end home routers can block P2P. Anyone can log into the router configuration and check the option to 'Disable IPSEC, PPTP, L2TP' then P2P is not possible.
P2P Server engages consumers' smartphones using DVR QR-CODE Private Key that activates the full DVR access to the 3rd party(P2P), meaningfully compromised by 3rd party already at the very first stage, this causes serious privacy leaks.
When the customer carries the Private Key of the DVR, and the other side, the 3rd man in the middle (P2P Server) also has the key to the DVR. and then the customer communicates with the DVR, must through that man in the middle who exchanged the keys for both DVR and Customers, now the 3rd man has more than enough information. This is the current state of all P2P servers and it makes a hole onto the router for additional attacks possible from others.
Port Digger isolates itself completely from consumer Local Area Network, also does not engage consumer's smartphone, does not require consumers to scan the QR codes, nor additional apps required. it does not open any hole onto their routers, P2P Server no longer has access to the DVR. Port Digger is entire privacy safe because Port-Digger never asks the router for the IPSEC, PPTP, L2TP permissions to engage the router, so there aren't any businesses between two has made, they never talk each other. instead, Port-Digger rather constructs a dedicated tunnel that is encrypted and handles everything itself fully automatically.
So consumer smartphones only use the encrypted tunnel directly without any engagement with the servers.
This is called Level 3 networks and the safest method of networking and security. Moreover, our DVR custom-built firewalls and packet inspection filters each ends.
P2P can't do advanced setup configuration for the camera, does not offer web servers and can't implement professional features, and they limit everything in the software.
Port Digger offers 100% full features of DVR deliverable to your consumer, PTZ, Alarms, Notifications, and everything. Also has its own dedicated 10Gbps infrastructure covers entire states and Port Digger works on any corporate-grade routers as well, and unlikely P2P, we do care and respect "the LAN". Our development achieves 99.99% uptime, if Port Digger ever goes down on site, everything is the automatic restoration against various situations.
