HeiTel releases CamControl app for Android smartphones

"CamControl Android" extends the range of HeiTel applications for Windows Mobile and iOS with an operating and alarm verification software package for all smartphones and tablets on the Android operating system from version 2.0. The software allows live images to be received from almost any number of analogue and IP cameras via the HeiTel VideoGateways, search-criteria-supported remote evaluation of local image archives and the enabling/disabling of HeiTel VideoGateways.

What is more, it is possible to control PTZ systems and dome cameras, and remotely control relay switching (e.g. for lights, cupboards, doors). The HTcompress image compression method, especially developed by HeiTel for security applications, enables fast image sequences, even on low bandwidths.

The full version of CamControl Android is available free until 31/12/11 exclusively from the Android Market.
