SKM security for Mac
videoNEXT has announced its latest product, SKM-Cirrus, that brings Mac support to its Security Knowledge Manager (SKM) software. The application provides tools for managing surveillance cameras in small businesses or homes. After installing the software, users simply connect the necessary cameras and the feed can be viewed from the desktop application or through the company's CAVU iPhone app.
The iPhone app features password-protected access to video feeds, along with multiple user roles and sets of devices. A live matrix of network cameras is presented on the interface, with full control for pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) functions. Users can also access archived content or view a real-time list of alerts or alarm statuses.
SKM-Cirrus can be purchased as a four-camera bundle for $200, while an eight-camera bundle costs $600 and a 16-camera variant fetches $1600. The CAVU iPhone app can be downloaded from iTunes for $20.
