The new Security Center Ver. 5.8 features customizable live dashboards, enhanced privacy protection features, a brand-new map-driven mobile app, and enhanced new functionalities that can help users with active monitoring of their security system to ensure cybersecurity best practices compliance.
Customizable live dashboard: The new Security Center 5.8, with its custom dashboards offering, enables users to create their own custom feeds that will fetch them real-time data, such as video feeds, alarms, reports and charts that relate to their specific job function (security, operations, IT, etc.).
Mobile app: The Security Center 5.8 along with its brand-new collaborative mobile app, will ensure operators have complete remote access to their Security Center system, even when they are on the move, allowing them to keep an eye on their security system using their smartphones.
Key features of the mobile app include:
- Video (live and recorded playback, PTZ controls, bookmarking, time- and event-based reports)
- Access control (door status, lock/unlock doors, override schedule, set maintenance mode, etc.)
- ALPR (live reads/hits, plate reports, and access hotlists)
- Interactive maps to increase local awareness, putting critical information much closer to the operators.
- Built-in messaging for instantaneous sharing of information between operators and field personnel.
System resilience and cybersecurity: The new Security Center 5.8 introduces a new Security Score feature that’ll enable operators to track each system’s compliance with hardening guidelines, firmware availability and updates, password strength, as well as other cybersecurity concerns, individually.
