The FullSight IP is a ceiling- or wall-mounted digital video camera that uses a fisheye lens to provide complete situational awareness. Not only is the FullSight Mini ultra compact and ready for a wide range of applications but it is delivered at a ground breaking price that brings total cost of ownership down dramatically.

From Speco Technologies – It’s a Mac world since the "T" Series DVRs are now compatible with Mac computers. This includes all TL, TN, TH, TT and TS Series DVRs - and - is backwards compatible to other Speco units. This program file size is very small and gets copied onto the MAC desktop - or - it can run from a USB flash drive. When the program launches, it requests an IP address or DDNS name of the DVR you want to connect to. Once entered, it connects to the DVR through an Internet connection and prompts you for the user name and password. You are then connected and can view live in full screen, multi screen and initiate playback. No configuration is necessary for this software to be used. This same software will run on a PC, too.

From MSi and Senstar – Windows-based Sentient displays and manages alarm and status information in high security environments such as correctional facilities, VIP residences, nuclear plants and critical infrastructure sites where alarm management of perimeter security systems is of paramount priority. Sentient’s modular architecture allows complete flexibility in system size – from a single workstation to several hundred if required – and out-of-the-box integration with both Senstar sensors and third-party systems. The pre?defined GUI and visual drag-and-drop configuration tool speeds the process of adapting Sentient to each specific site’s requirements.
