Manything Pro upgrade includes OEM solution and alert scheduling

Manything Pro, the cloud video recording and remote monitoring software, has introduced an OEM distribution model for large installers.

Developed in response to requests from partners, the Oxfordshire-based company has also released alert schedules, alarm output and camera input features.

Professional security installers can generate recurring revenue through the Manything Pro service, which is now available to users of analogue Hikvision systems – undoubtedly the most ubiquitous video surveillance brand in the UK.

Here are more details on the new functionality featured in version 6.4 of Manything Pro, which is downloadable from the App Store and Google Play:

  • Users can now control when they receive motion alerts – push notifications, email alerts or alarms – by setting up alert schedules
  • Alarm output means an external alarm can now be triggered when motion is detected
  • Recording can now be triggered by the camera’s alarm input. For example, an external PIR sensor could trigger recording in order to reduce false positives caused by night time bugs and rain
  • A complete white label OEM solution for large installers, including their own app and branded version of the online browser-based viewer

The other two branding options available to installers:

  • ‘Off-the-shelf’: installers upload their logo to the Manything Pro partner portal and it’s immediately visible to customers on the Manything Pro app and website when they log in to view their cameras
  • Hybrid white label: A more generic brand – CCTV Connect – is available to installers to market to customers as their own through a second app and website. Once the brand is built into the CCTV Connect software (around 10 days’ development time, no charge) a customer will see the full installer brand and colours – not the Manything Pro brand – when they log into the app and website.

“Our latest update includes a collection of new features requested by our installer partners,” said James West, CEO and co-founder of Manything Pro. “This is our favourite kind of update because we know it will improve the service our partners can offer to their customers.”

Founded in 2012, Manything (standing for ‘monitor anything’) originally turned old smartphones and tablets into video monitoring cameras. In 2016 it diversified into the professional security industry and integrated its software with a range of Hikvision cameras.

The platform monitors 25 years of video every day for more than 950,000 registered users.
