The latest version of the Samsung iPOLiS Mobile app has new features designed the makers say to make it easier to remotely gain access to live images in HD via a smartphone or tablet and avoid unauthorised access to confidential data.
iPOLiS Mobile v2.6 enables the direct remote monitoring of multiple HD cameras at multiple sites. A user need not access the images via a recording device.
Tim Biddulph, Head of Product and Marketing for Samsung Techwin Europe, said: “We have made the iPOLiS Mobile app as secure, but also as user friendly as possible, which is why we have also added a ‘favourites’ feature. It is a feature that is likely to be popular with security personnel who are responsible for a large number of sites. Loss prevention managers, for example, may wish to make favourites of cameras located at stores they particularly want to keep a close eye on.”
iPOLiS Mobile v2.6 also supports audio and works with all Samsung IP network cameras and domes, including full pan/tilt/zoom models. The v2.6 allows authorised users to access camera SD cards, and digital and network recorders, to search and play back recorded video of incidents. With an option to display favourite camera, DVR and NVR profiles in a tile format, users can switch from live or recorded images, from multiple cameras or recorders.
The app is free to download from iTunes and the Android market. It can be set up in less than a minute, the makers add. An auto detection feature lets you search for new devices, after which users are able to view streamed video from selected cameras via wireless or 3G and 4G networks.
