i-Catcher Console 4 provides a complete scalable CCTV system, with motion detection, alerting, remote web interface, simultaneous record and playback, scheduled activity, device control, and flexible display options, exceeding the standards you'd expect from a modern digital CCTV system. i-Catcher Console uses a wide range of camera devices, including USB webcams, capture cards (for connection to conventional analogue CCTV cameras), and the latest network/IP video servers and cameras.
Because of its modular design, you are not limited to one type of device for the whole system - you can mix devices as required. i-Catcher Console also works with PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom) cameras to not only provide a remotely moveable CCTV camera, but also provides auto-tracking - the camera can move to follow movement through a monitored area.Motion detection is performed without the need for PIR triggers and external motion detectors. Once motion is detected, recording begins. For extra security, i-Catcher can record before and after the motion event to ensure you capture everything. Sensitivity controls add an extra level of flexibility. i-Catcher Console supports I/O input and control through a variety of interfaces, including X10 home automation, allowing almost any remote control configuration The flexibility and simplicity of the user interface is available remotely, and yet requires only a web browser for use. No ActiveX controls are needed; no software needs to be installed.
The remote interface provides a full live feed view, with digital zoom options, control of PTZ cameras, multiple simultaneous feeds, and image quality settings to improve performance through bandwidth reduction. Playback is also provided with all the options of the local playback facility, and most of Console's configuration can be adjusted through remote administration. All of these features can be password protected at many levels to provide a powerful security system.
