Professional mobile video management in your pocket

Issue 6 2023 Surveillance

More security managers are asking for video management functions that can be operated as comprehensively as possible from a mobile device. With the SeMSy Mobile Client for its Domera and Panomera cameras, Dallmeier is now launching a solution that combines the functional and security requirements of professional organisations with the user-friendliness and simplicity of consumer apps.

Security managers in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in particular, are often ‘on the road’ while at the same time need to be in the know regarding security in the company. Accordingly, there is a growing demand for video surveillance solutions that can be operated and managed as comprehensively as possible from mobile devices. With the SeMSy Mobile Client, Dallmeier now offers a solution that enables small and medium-sized companies to do just that – even without centralised recording if required.

Situational awareness from anywhere

In addition to mobile access to live images from cameras at different locations, the SeMSy Mobile Client sends status and event messages from cameras and – where applicable – recording systems to the mobile client. The events are pre-selected and classified using AI-based object classification on the cameras. All events are displayed in an easy-to-navigate list with preview images. From there, playback of the event can be activated directly.

Security managers are always informed, are proactively alerted to incidents and can intervene, for example, by directly addressing an offender via loudspeaker or by triggering IoT systems via MQTT. The app can be operated intuitively using either sliders or the innovative ‘trackwheel’ with haptic confirmation and without any formal training. In addition to the smartphone app, a tablet version is also available.

From mobile-only to a hybrid solution

The smallest Dallmeier solution consists of one or more Dallmeier cameras and the SeMSy Mobile Client. Recording takes place on SD cards in the camera. For longer recordings or the integration of older camera generations or cameras from other manufacturers, current Dallmeier recording systems can also be integrated. The SeMSy Mobile Client can also be combined with fixed workstations and the free SeMSy Compact software to create a larger, hybrid solution consisting of local workstations and mobile devices.

Dallmeier also placed special emphasis on the simplicity of configuring and managing the solution: The cameras can be registered directly in the mobile client via a QR code and assigned to a location, as can the recording devices, if required. A highlight of the SeMSy Mobile Client is the integrated user management. Users can invite other users from their organisation to access cameras and recording systems at a location directly from the application. The individual rights of the guests can be defined via user roles. If necessary, access can be quickly and efficiently revoked at any time.

The connection to the video streams is made via the Dallmeier Connect Service, which guarantees end-to-end encryption. This eliminates the need for time-consuming configuration of firewalls and routers in the local network. The data is neither processed nor cached along the entire transport route, ensuring maximum data security.

“With the SeMSy Mobile Client, security managers are in control at all times and from anywhere. The solution combines AI-based event notification, intuitive and simple operation with configuration, management and user administration for professional requirements,” says Thomas Reisinger, CTO at Dallmeier. “This is why we deliberately named the solution ‘SeMSy Mobile Client’, because it is not a mobile application for a local video management system, but a stand-alone mobile-first solution for small and medium-sized environments. In addition to corporate customers and their professional installers, the offering is also aimed at homeowners in the upmarket segment.”
