IC Realtime, a manufacturer of advanced visual surveillance solutions for residential and commercial applications, now has Control4 drivers for its Dual Core series of NVRs, DVRs and HD DVRs.
The drivers, developed by Extra Vegetables, bring enhanced functionality to the recorders in the Control4 environment—namely picture previewing and streaming video. Installers can also take advantage of technical support from IC Realtime should they need assistance loading the driver into Control4’s Composer design software.
According to IC Realtime integrated technologies manager Christoffer Callaway, the driver is designed to be extremely easy to load. “Drag-and-drop the driver into your project, point to the IP address and you’re done. It’s that simple,” said Callaway.
”The increased functionality also benefits end-users in that they can take advantage of a centralized interface that manages total home control as well as surveillance,” added Callaway. “In other words, users don’t have to leave the Control4 environment to access the IC Realtime system. That’s a really nice convenience.”
IC Realtime Dual Core series recorders shipping effective March 2013 are equipped with the new Control4 compatible firmware. Installers can easily update firmware of recorders in the field by contacting the IC Realtime technical support department at 954.736.4211.
Control4 drivers are made available for download directly from Extra Vegetables at extravegetables.com.
