Samsung has developed an application which enables live video from its iPOLiS network camera range to be remotely viewed on the iPhone and Android smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone.
The free iPOLiS MOBILE app, which can be downloaded from iTunes and Android market, allows users to control the pan, tilt and zoom functions of the latest Samsung network cameras on their sites via an easy-to-use interface. 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.
All future Samsung iPOLiS network cameras will be compatible with the app. Camera models which currently have the latest firmware and are therefore compatible, include the latest HD megapixel ranges, including full pan/tilt/zoom models.
The iPOLiS MOBILE app can also provide for live viewing and PTZ control of analogue cameras via a Samsung SRD series DVR.
“The introduction of the iPOLiS MOBILE app is an excellent example of how our design engineers are looking at innovative ways to provide customers with maximum benefit from a Samsung surveillance solution,” said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “There are so many different ways this application might be put to good use. It will certainly be of practical help, for example, to security managers who are not permanently based at one location and are responsible for a large number of sites.”
