Manything Pro has worked with engineers from Hikvision to integrate its off-site cloud recording software with a range of digital video recorders (DVRs). This means installers can add IP functionality to coax systems, that can give them a new source of recurring revenue through cloud subscription plans; without the need to replace cameras or cabling.
Setting up takes less than five minutes through the Manything Pro smartphone app, available on Apple and Android. The installer just needs to enter the DVR’s IP address, port number, username and password; and the app does the rest. Once Manything Pro is installed onto the DVR, the security software detects the cameras and adds them into the app. These cameras can be viewed and controlled remotely, and their video will be sent to the secure offsite Manything Pro cloud.
Paul Gordon, sales director at Dynamic CCTV, said “DVR compatibility is a great addition to the offering, lots of our installers have asked if they can add analogue systems to the Manything Pro cloud.”
The first three compatible Hikvision DVR models are DS-7204HUHI-K1, DS-7204HUHI-K1/P and DS-7204HUHI-K2; more to follow. As for adding offsite cloud recording as a new source of recurring revenue, Manything Pro have a payment platform which handles the recurring subscription payments for the installer, meaning they need only specify the price they want to charge their customer and let Manything Pro do the rest.
About Manything history
Oxfordshire-based Manything, founded in 2012, stands for ‘monitor anything’ – the original app was developed to turn old smartphones and tablets into video monitoring cameras. In 2016 Manything turned its attention to the security sector and integrated their software with a range of Hikvision cameras. Visit www.Manything.com.
