Security Spy - v N/A
The integration of IP CCTV cameras into Control4 is one of the most common requests we get. Whilst Control4 is compatible directly with a range of CCTV cameras, dealers have been asking for a wider choice. Not all IP cameras can be directly integrated with Control4 so an alternative solution needed to be found.
The SecuritySpy Mac based DVR software solution is the gateway to the support of over 500 IP cameras within Control4. Not only will it provide your customers with the ability to view cameras on their Control4 interfaces, it also provides full security DVR facilities as well. All for a similar price to the Control4 supported 4 camera analog to IP convertor.
Extra Vegetables in conjunction with Ben Software are enabling you to re-sell their DVR software to your customers. You will need to provide a Mac mini computer and we will provide you with a driver.
Dealers can purchase the Security Spy software from Ben Softwre direct.

Hundreds of IP Cameras Supported
The SecuritySpy software is able to convert the video images from literally hundreds of IP cameras into a format that is compatible with Control4. This enables a wide range of camera types and styles to be used with Control4. Static and PTZ cameras can be integrated. For a full list of supported cameras click here
Versions for 1, 4, 8, 16 or unlimited cameras.
You can re-sell your customers a license for the software to enable 1, 4, 8, 16 or unlimited IP camera support. Customers can upgrade their license at any time to enable more cameras. This is a software license only - you must supply the Mac computer. For 1-8 cameras a Mac Mini is adequate. To calculate the power of the Mac required click here
Full DVR with recording facilities.
This solution provides full DVR recording facilities - it is not just a way of enabling the cameras within Control4. Your customer has the benefit of a fully digital DVR based on reliable Mac technology for less than the price of a 4 camera analog to IP convertor.
Motion Detection Recording.
Like a top end DVR the software enables recording based on motion detected within the frame.
