Manything Pro, which offers offsite cloud video recording and remote monitoring software, have released a range of new features. Manything Pro is a way for security installers to provide offsite cloud video recording and create a new source of recurring revenue from their camera installs.
Recently Manything Pro has offered compatibility with a range of Hikvision DVRs meaning cloud can be added to legacy systems, and has upgraded to support 1080p recording on compatible Hikvision IP cameras. James West, CEO and co-founder of Manything Pro, said: “Our latest update includes a collection of new features requested by our installer partners, this is our favourite kind of update because we know it will improve the service our partners can offer to their customers.”
Manything Pro can now offer a ‘white label’ solution to large installers, including their own app and branded version of the online browser-based viewer. New features include:
– Alert schedules – users can now set up schedules to control when they receive motion alerts (push notifications, email alerts or alarms).
– Alarm output – an external alarm can now be triggered when motion is detected.
– Camera input – recording can now be triggered by the camera’s alarm input. For example, an external PIR sensor can be used to trigger recording, ideal for reducing false positives caused by bugs and rain at night.
The software firm offers two other branding options. The simplest is the “off-the-shelf” solution; installers upload their logo into the Manything Pro partner portal and their customers see it inside the Manything Pro app and website when they log in to view their cameras. The second option is a hybrid white label – Manything Pro have a second app and website which has a more generic title, CCTV Connect, so installers can market this to customers as their own. Once the installer brand is built into the CCTV Connect software (taking about ten days of development time, at no charge) a customer will see the full installer brand and colours when they log into the app and website and the Manything Pro brand isn’t visible to the end customer.
Manything, founded in 2012, stands for ‘monitor anything’ – the original Manything app was developed to turn old smartphones and tablets into sophisticated home monitoring cameras. Visit manything.com/partners; and the Apple and Google app stores.
