Port Forwarding: iMaxCamPro Systems with Linksys Routers

If you choose not to utilize UPnP to help in bypassing creating port forwarding rules on your firewall/router, you will need to verify the port settings on your NVR.  Here’s how to do it. If the above process seems daunting or you are experiencing any issues, it might be time to upgrade to a security solution that does not require port-forwarding.  P2P systems are more secure, much easier to set up, and easier to troubleshoot, because none of the above steps are required.  Most newer systems use this method for…

What is H.265? and what does it mean for security systems?

What is H.265? H.265 video codec achieves a better compression ratio while maintaining high quality pictures at reduced network bandwidths. H.265, also referred to as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is a type of video compression which directly affects the rate of streaming (how much or how little delay/glitching/buffering may be happening to a video stream), as well as the amount of space the video file takes up on a hard drive disk (HDD). H.264 vs. H.265 The most common codec before this was, and to some degree still is,…

What is Smart Scene Adaptive? (SSA)

Smart Scene Adaptive is an IP camera’s ability to function with superior quality in both high and low light, with a smooth transition while changing between the two. Smart Scene Adaptive (SSA) is a self-developed intelligent image technology for iMaxCamPro, the camera automatically evaluates the change in scene, in particular strong lights.  In a strongly back lit environment, it will automatically regulate exposure parameters to get better image quality. This can effectively address the impact of traffic lights, providing excellent video quality.

What is IVS?

Intelligent Video System (IVS) With built-in intelligent video analytics, the NVR has the ability to detect and analyze moving objects for improved video surveillance. The NVR provides optional standard intelligence at the edge allowing detection of multiple object behaviors such as abandoned or missing objects. IVS also supports Tripwire analytics, allowing the camera to detect when a pre-determined line has been crossed, People Counting, ideal for business intelligence, and Facial Detection, for searching or identification of individuals. Some IP cameras have a built-in video analysis based on intelligent algorithms and can…

What are Video Analytics?

CCTV Analytics refers to a set of analytical tools that allow users to gather useful data beyond just video or audio footage, for real-time and post forensic analysis. In real-time, users can be alerted to events as they happen either through an alarm or a push notification on their mobile or desktop, and post-event lookup is simple with a plethora of ways to organize and log data. This information can apply to people, vehicles, and static objects, and can be applied in police reporting, used as court evidence, or simply…

IP Cameras vs HD-Over-Analog

When you find yourself looking for a security system, most people “in the know” will tell you not to get an analog camera due to it’s likelihood of being less efficient and having low image quality.  Nowadays, an analog camera can rarely if ever even be used to present footage for evidence in a court of law.  Not to mention the technology itself is all but obsolete.  For this reason, many who are looking to upgrade their system or purchase their first one go for an IP security camera or…
