ASUSTOR Inc., a leading innovator and provider of network storage solutions, has announced the release of the Surveillance Center 2.3 beta version. This version of Surveillance Center features powerful new features including automated event action rules, simplified and intuitive on-screen controls, role-based access control, and the addition of foreign object detection for intelligent video analytics and search. The HDMI local output function has also been expanded for setups with greater than 4 cameras, allowing users to change pages to view different video feeds and automatically cycle between feeds, providing the same type of convenience as browsing real-time surveillance feeds on a web page.
“Since the release of Surveillance Center we have been continually receiving feedback from all of our users. This has allowed us to make continual improvements and innovations, creating an even more reliable, convenient and versatile surveillance system,” said James Su, Product Manager at ASUSTOR. “This new upgrade significantly enhances overall system performance in a variety of ways while also removing the previous limitation that required the local display function to be disabled when using additional camera channel licenses, creating a truly computer-less real-time surveillance system.”
The Surveillance Center 2.3 beta version also features the following new functions:
Automated event action rules: This function allows administrators to customise alarm handling rules. When an event occurs, the system can select different measures to handle the situation based on the type of event that occurred or the time the event occurred. These different measures include actively sending out email/SMS notifications to different groups, smartphone push notifications, activating multiple cameras to begin recording, assigning cameras to patrol a specific area or activating other external devices providing automated and intelligent event handling.
Simple and intuitive on-screen controls: A variety of real-time on-screen controls and functions on the Surveillance Center interface allow you to control PTZ camera movement, configure camera settings, start recordings and take snapshots of camera feeds. In addition to providing a smooth and intuitive control experience, the efficiency of operation is also significantly increased.
Role-based access control: Surveillance Center provides role based access control, allowing administrators to create roles for users according to their responsibilities, administrative tasks that they are able to execute, and the camera feed playback and administrative functions available to them, significantly increasing management convenience and flexibility.
Foreign object detection: In addition to the existing motion detection function, the Surveillance Center 2.3 beta version also provides foreign object detection. Users can quickly search and detect if a foreign object has appeared in a specified area (for example, a bag, box, tire or person) in order to quickly and efficiently find the relevant video recordings.
The Surveillance Center 2.3 beta is available for all ASUSTOR NAS devices. Users can install it free of charge from ASUSTOR’s App Central to enjoy a versatile and ideal Surveillance Solution.
