Skydda mot cyberattacker!
Skydda mot cyberattacker!

Dataintrång sker över hela världen, vilket gör fysiska säkerhetssystem sårbara för en attack. Uppdatering av system med den allra senaste firmware är ett effektivt sätt att förhindra att utrustning blir utsatt för en cyberattack. Firmware kan innehålla både funktionsförbättringar och viktiga säkerhetsuppdateringar. Vi kommer alltid att kräva att installatörer följer säkerhetsriktlinjerna för tillverkaren för att […]

Where did it all begin?

1942 – In 1942, the Second World War was in effect and the technology developed rapidly. The first CCTV camera we know of was developed by Siemens AG in Germany. It was built to observe the launch of rockets in the war.

resolution quality of 0.1 MP (352×288).

1998 – Over 3,000 CCTVs are now used in New York and privately
companies and government organizations have invested heavily in technology. Axis had
started using Linux in the camera software. Axis also released documentation
for its application interface (API), called VAPIX, which is based on open
standards for HTTP and real-time streaming protocol (RTSP). This one open
the architecture was intended to encourage third-party manufacturers to develop
compatible software for handling and recording.

1999-The first decentralized IP camera was released

recording management functions. The first POE standard saw the light of the world.
