Genetec iPhone Application

By: John Honovich, Published on Jul 14, 2009

A mobile monitoring product offering, called iGuard [link no longer available], has been announced for use with Genetec (see product demo video [link no longer available]). The application provides access to live and recorded video through iPhone/iPod Touches. The solution requires a dedicated server to facilitate transmission between OmniCast and the iPhones/iPod touches. The MSRP is $995 per device. Given the requirement of a server and the high license price, this is likely limited to high end, large scale applications with teams of security guards/monitors.

Compare to LexTech Labs [link no longer available] which supports OnSSI and Milestone.

[Update: Genetec, like nearly every VMS now has their own mobile applications for far less expense.]
