Improving user experience on mobile

More straightforward camera navigation and a new bookmark functionality will make life easier for remote users

Find the camera you need faster

You asked. We listened. For years, finding specific cameras and camera groups in XProtect® Mobile has not been very easy. Now, it’s more straightforward.

With 2021 R2, XProtect Mobile supports the ability to gather different camera views into view groups, including floor, building, or location. This capability gives a more direct path toward finding specific cameras and footage and is especially useful for large installations with multiple cameras and sites.

The structure of group views is inherited from the XProtect Smart Client's setup. With this addition, all three XProtect Clients now offer a closely aligned user interaction for dealing with cameras and views

Searching across view groups

The “group view” feature also includes a group search function that allows users to search for views and cameras across the range. This significantly improves the operator’s ability to find relevant footage.

Product Compatibility
Available in XProtect Essential+, XProtect Express+, XProtect Professional+, XProtect Expert and XProtect Corporate version 2021 R2 or later.

Seeing something suspicious?

Bookmarking has provided an easy way to mark specific videos in the XProtect Smart Client for later analysis. Now, that time-saving capability is available for mobile and web client users, too.

With 2021 R2 remote users can make bookmarks in live and recorded video directly from their phones or within the XProtect Web Client

Bookmarking helps

  • Highlight suspicious incidents and make the footage available for other XProtect users

  • File evidence material that is searchable in the XProtect Smart Client

  • Handle incidents efficiently with bookmark exporting capabilities

Product Compatibility
Available in XProtect Essential+, XProtect Express+, XProtect Professional+, XProtect Expert and XProtect Corporate version 2021 R2 or later.

New icon help identify PTZ cameras

Locating Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras is now easier, with new XProtect Smart Client icons distinguishing PTZ from standard cameras.

Now, operators can instantly differentiate between fixed cameras and moveable cameras, so they can quickly identify the camera they need.

What are the benefits of a PTZ camera?

Video surveillance setups typically consist of fixed cameras that are set up to cover a setting from a specific angle. With PTZ cameras, operators can move the camera from the XProtect Smart Client to track objects or change their point of view.
