The latest release of IndigoVision’s Security Management Solution, SMS4 release 6, delivers superior scalability and even more ‘power to the people’ – especially to customers with multiple sites and large numbers of cameras. The solution now has more flexible administrative capability while still retaining its operational ease of use. Wherever they happen to be, administrators can configure the IndigoVision solution locally, writing to the database simultaneously. Sophisticated configuration options maximise access as well as ensuring central management.
For organisations that span multi-site locations each site may need to configure locally to reflect local priorities, while overall system control is retained at a central location. The new version of SMS4 builds on the immense scalability of the IndigoVision solution to create more management control, enabling local administrators to log on to specific areas to make changes relating to their site while still seeing everything across the entire system. Users really can scale their system as never before.
Local configuration within SMS4 is not only fast and simple, but also provides great system-wide versatility that has a direct organisational benefit, enabling administrators to work on the system concurrently and at any number of locations.
Speaking of the product launch Alex Swanson, Head of Engineering at IndigoVision says: “The new release of IndigoVision’s Security Management Software, SMS4 r6 provides a truly scalable solution, allowing the flexibility to administer and view multiple sites from any location.”
The new SMS4 solution provides improved support for functions such as importing detailed maps in multiple formats, and there are further enhancements to alarm and bookmark functionality to improve flexibility for alarm verification and escalation. The solution also continues IndigoVision’s ongoing and ever-expanding support for third-party cameras providing a truly open system. Due to its unique distributed architecture, any system component can be added at any point on the IP network, including Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and video workstations. The flexibility of SMS4 means that it is installed globally for projects in airports, ports, rail, traffic, cities, banking, mining, retail, casinos, police, prisons and government.
