Mobotix Software 'Truly Horrible'

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 10, 2010

The UK's most well known security publication has tested Mobotix's product and judged their MxControlCentre software to be 'truly horrible'. The money quote:

"MXControlCentre is truly horrible. It’s far from intuitive, the layout and labelling makes it really difficult to use and, on our setup at least, was prone to random crashes.... It’s a baffling design, defying well-established conventions to the point that hardly anything works as expected and functions that should be easy and accessible are buried in menus or hidden behind perplexing toolbar icons."
