The mobile application allows for remote monitoring of a system based on 4000, AHD and Wi-Fi recorders via a smartphone with Android or iOS. The basic configuration of the recorder and cameras as well as PTZ control are available from the phone. The application allows you to connect to the recorder via P2P using a QR code, without the need for additional network configuration. In addition, it allows you to receive push alarms for selected alarm actions such as:
- crossing the line
- intrusion into the zone
- sabotage

PIR sensor

Thanks to the use of a passive infrared detector, which was built into the front panel of the camera, we can eliminate false motion detections caused by eg:
- lights of passing cars
- shadow movements
- reflections from shiny surfaces
- leaves / trees movement in the wind
The principle of operation of the PIR sensor is based on the detection of heat changes in the detection zone, therefore the alarm is generated only when a human or other object that differs in temperature from the environment appears on the area.

ONVIF standard

The ONVIF standard allows for basic compatibility between devices from different manufacturers and brands. The camera + recorder set supporting the ONVIF standard guarantees that the camera will be found, added, recorded and will transmit information about motion detection.

Hybrid Mode

The Novus AHD DVRs, thanks to the hybrid mode, are able to display, record and receive image analysis from including IP cameras. The combination of analog cameras with IP cameras in one recorder is particularly important in the case of modernization of the existing video monitoring system, as well as its future expansion.
