An enhanced version of the Samsung iPOLiS MOBILE app for use on iPhone and Android smartphones has been launched. New features have been included in iPOLiS mobile version 2.3 to provide improved access to Samsung cameras and DVRs.
Version 2.3 of the free app, which can be downloaded from iTunes and the Android market, allows users to remotely control the pan, tilt and zoom functions of many of Samsung network cameras via an easy-to-use interface and is also compatible with the Samsung SRD series DVRs. Set-up can be completed in less than a minute, after which users are able to view streamed video from their selected camera via a wireless or 3G network.
Key new features incorporated into version 2.3 include auto detection for adding new devices, and ‘Event’ search to provide easy access to recorded video. It also provides touch screen support for setting the time on the search page.
“The iPOLiS MOBILE app continues to grow in popularity among customers who are looking to gain maximum benefit from their investment in their video surveillance system,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Any security manager who has responsibility for more than one site can take advantage of the ability to remotely monitor live images of any suspicious activity or retrieve recorded video of any incident via their smartphone. This can be of significant benefit for example in the retail sector where loss prevention managers are not permanently based at one location.”
