Wavestore has launched v6.8 of its VMS to deliver performance and functionality improvements for installers and systems integrators. The enhancements to v6.8 include support for VMWare ESXi, introducing virtualisation to the VMS platform. Users that deploy Virtual Machines (VMs) as part of their IT infrastructure can take full advantage of the technology which helps reduce energy, software and IT administration costs.
Wavestore’s VMS can be licensed in two ways when in a VM environment: via the internet or, for sites that do not have constant internet access, via Wavestore’s VM dongle.
Version 6.8 also adds operator enhancements to the WaveView client software, such as the ability to dynamically search and instantly display ad-hoc groups of devices. For example, searching for ‘door’ will display any device that has ‘door’ in its name, allowing the user to find specific clusters of cameras and/or devices.
‘Our “one screen, total control” philosophy drives us to ensure that our partners can seamlessly bring a wide range of technologies together so that operators can easy work day-to-day with our VMS’, states Julian Inman, Head of Product Management. ‘Wavestore’s VMS running in a virtualised environment can even be used in conjunction with traditional NVRs/HVRs and the operator can simply see and control the entire mixed group from a single screen if they wish. We bring together multiple devices, such as cameras, access control, intruder detection and advanced analytics, and now multiple server technologies, all with the same easy-to-use front end to deliver a fully scalable and future-proof solution.’
Wavestore has also introduced new integrations, including the latest camera feature sets from Hikvision and Uniview. This include functionality such as face detection, line crossing, advanced motion detection, scene change notifications and other analytics which can be set to trigger specific actions on event. The full video analytics suite from AllGoVision is also fully integrated, and individual detection zones from Optex Redscan detectors can be associated with specific actions.
Wavestore v6.8 is shipping with all new orders and is available as an upgrade for existing users who have active Upgrade Bundles. In addition, integration modules are available to bolt onto existing solutions or can be ordered at time of purchase with new solutions.
