The software has been created as universal program for surveillance hybrid platforms running simultaneously with wireless and wired Internet webcams, TV-boards, capture cards, power-line, and USB cameras. It has web interface with the same form and functionality on the local and distant computers. Users see MPEG-4 coded picture and have full control of the software through net that security station can be operated without screen, keyboard, and mouse attached. Program`s modular configuration considerably improves reliability because all modules proceed as independent applications.
If one part fails, other units go on running. For instance if the `capture` unit fails, `watchdog` starts again it instantly that viewers don`t notice anything because they are watching picture using a `playback` part. The software performs `repeated` recording that the `hard drive full` situation never appears. The recording can be constant or it can be turned on by movement, human face detection, or by schedule. The program has pre-alarm and post-alarm recording. Playing back recorded video is pretty easy and performs on the surveillance pc as well as on remote pc through Web interface. The program makes synchronized video playback for event analysis from many webcams at the same time. Also recorded files can be searched by date, time or by face detected. All recorded data can be encrypted and password protected.
