If your recorder is newer than 2016 then the answer is probably yes. Depending on the recorder type and if your building has an internet connection, the DVR can be setup so that tenants or property manager can see the camera feed from any smart phone.
How do App-based Smart Intercom work?
When visitors arrive to a building with a Smart App-based Intercom, they will be able to search for the apartment unit through the building directory. Once the tenant’s name is selected the intercom panel will place a video call to the resident’s app. Residents will be able to see who is at the door and “buzz” them in while the system takes a picture of the visitor. All picture records are kept for 30 days.
