Wavestore is introducing an updated version of its open-platform and highly secure Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS).
Wavestore v6.28 represents a major step forward as it enables highly accurate real-time event detection and powerful forensic search using video analytics metadata from selected ONVIF cameras. This allows events to be triggered only when specific circumstances occur. For example, if a car went through an exit where only trucks are permitted, or more than 4 persons in an area where there is a limit.
It can be used as part of a KNX system or through conventional installation, all thanks to its flexible mounting system that supports exterior and interior application on both walls and ceilings.
Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ access control system allows businesses to manage access permissions remotely, from anywhere in the world.
