exacqVision Web Service 2.1exacqVision Web Service 2.1 has just been released. The Web Service, available at no charge for all exacqVision deployments, powers the exacqVision Browser-based client, as well as the exacq Mobile iPhone, iPad and Android mobile apps.

New features in Version 2.1 include:

Here are the features in detail:

Soft Triggers
All "soft triggers" configured on exacqVision systems can now be accessed through the Browser client and the mobile apps.

exacqVision iPhone App update – Version 1.15

There are two versions of the exacqVision iPhone App on iTunes. The Lite version is free and fully functional. It connects to all of the exacqVision demo servers in Indiananapolis and California, which is a great way to demo the mobile capability of exacqVision. The full version, at $49.99, enables connecting to an unlimited number of cameras on an unlimited number of exacqVision servers.

For those with smaller camera count viewing requirements, an update to the Lite version of the iPhone app will be of interest. Version 1.15 of the lite app, now on iTunes, is a free download or update. In addition to free viewing of all cameras on the exacqVision demo servers, version 1.15 now enables users to add single cameras from their own exacqVision servers at a low, $4.99 per-camera price as an in-app purchase.  For deployments where mobile users only need to monitor a small number of cameras, this is a useful and cost-effective option.

NVR Viewer Lite is available at no charge on the iTunes store here. More information on the exacqVision iPhone/iPad app on our mobile page.

Exacq at PSA-TEC 2010

Exacq at PSA-TEC 2010We have just returned from PSA-TEC 2010, the annual education, training and technology event that PSA Security Network holds for its members. We have found PSA-TEC to be of considerable value to us, as it affords us the opportunity to spend some in-depth time with the PSA member resellers.

One of the most important parts of the conference is the training sessions. We held one of our day-long exacqVision technical reseller training sessions on Tuesday, where we had a pre-registered full house as well as some dealers who added the course on-site.

Exacq receives Superstar Vendor Achievement Award at PSA-TEC 2010Wednesday morning was the Vendor Awards Banquet, the result of PSA member surveys ranking vendors on overall products, support, pricing, and service to the membership. We were very honored to receive the "Superstar Vendor Achievement Award" this year, the highest award PSA offers. Our sincere appreciation goes out to the entire PSA member base for this award.

After the awards breakfast was the trade show. This was the first year at the Rosemont Convention Center, and the upgraded facilities were a great change of pace. We had a packed booth the entire show, and the increased space and wider aisles were most welcome. We showed our latest exacqVision Version 4.1 features, as well as a sneak peek of the upcoming Version 4.2 features, including Sanyo IP camera support and ONVIF support, using Bosch and other ONVIF-compatible cameras. We also were using IP cameras from Axis, Vivotek, IQeye, Panasonic, ACTi, Sony, and Arecont Vision, who was also right across the aisle from us.

Additionally, we also featured our iPhone & iPad surveillance app, which allows full connection to all exacqVision servers, live viewing with multiple camera layouts, and search and playback of recorded video.

Sam Pfeifle of Security Systems News gave his take on the show in this blog post. Wednesday night was the popular PSA-TEC Jam Session, and Sam was live-streaming the band over his iPhone via ustream.com. He posted archival video of that event here.

Our thanks once again to the entire PSA organization for the great job they did with this years’ well-run event. Below are some pictures and a video from the show floor. Click on each for a larger image.
