Returning to the workplace: How access control plays a vital role in a safe and secure return strategy

Honeywell adds iPhone capabilities to Performance Series DVR

Users download the free Remote-View app from the Apple iTunes store and set up connection parameters. Then they select the DVR from a drop-down list and click Connect to see live video on their iPhone device.

Instead of using a computer in order to bring up a GUI or web browser where they can dial in, the functionality is completely mobile.

“Today, almost everyone is carrying a wireless device of some sort,” said Bill Durno, global product marketing manager at Honeywell.

“This new app allows anyone with an HRDP H.264 DVR, internet connectivity, and an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to see their office or home anytime, anywhere within the coverage area for their mobile device.

“We also expect to support additional mobile platforms to increase remote access capability in the near.”

The HRDP H.264 DVR, part of Honeywell’s Performance Series portfolio of video surveillance products, supports a feature set “comparable to many high-end embedded DVRs but at a much lower price,” the manufacturer claims.

The DVR offers H.264 video compression and also supports a user-friendly front panel control, mouse operation, and IR remote control, wizards for fast and easy setup, and graphical search engines to help operators find evidence video quickly.

An internal DVD-RW and two USB ports make it easy for users to copy evidence video to portable media.

The HRDP records at a rate of up to 200 ips PAL. When it detects motion, the HRDP can automatically boost the recording rate to capture additional details of the scene.
