Milestone releases XProtect Mobile

December 21st, 2011 by Frank Crouwel

Xprotect Mobile for Milestone Xprotect

Milestone have released their XProtect Mobile application, allowing users of Milestone video management software to access their CCTV system while on the move. In this first release, support is available for Android-based phones and tablets with iPhone and iPad compatibility expected to follow in spring 2012 [update May 2012 – iPhone and iPad versions now available].


2012 Price drop from Lilin CCTV

We have received the pleasant news that Lilin is dropping their prices in preparation for 2012. The permanent price reduction also includes their recent, much improved Lilin IP camera range. We have adopted the new Lilin 2012 prices as from today.

With this move, Lilin is starting to offer some excellent value for money. On some models they are now simply hard to beat.


Sanyo Electric announce withdrawal

December 9th, 2011 by Frank Crouwel


As was expected for a while we have recently received a statement from Sanyo Electric announcing their complete withdrawal from the market. This covers everything from TVs, microwaves, projectors and also CCTV.

The official wrap up of the organisation will be 31st March 2012. However, production actually ceased in July 2011. Therefore any current gaps in inventory will not be replenished and once stocks sell out we will not be able to source additional stock.

Sanyo advise that they will continue to honour their warranty repairs and service obligations. Further details of how this will be managed will be communicated soon.

It’s a shame to see Sanyo disappear since the IP CCTV line up was a strong offering at a good price-point and has been used in many security installations.

For existing Sanyo users who wish to complement their existing installations check the range at our IP camera store. Please note that items may become unavailable at any time.

Lilin launch HD outdoor IP security camera range

October 28th, 2011 by David

Lilin have recently released a range of IP security cameras with a number of useful features, including HD quality resolution, infra red night-vision and easy mobile viewing, providing an effective CCTV solution for round the clock surveillance monitoring.


Milestone launches XProtect Express

October 1st, 2011 by David

Two weeks ago at the Milestone Integration Partner conference in Copenhagen (which they like to call MIPS), Milestone announced the launch of an addition to its XProtect video management software suite. It’s called Xprotect Express and it’s positioned in-between Milestone’s entry-level product XProtect Essential and the more advanced XProtect Professional. We think Milestone are spot on introducing a product that bridges a gap that was too wide.

With a base license (including 2 camera licenses) available from just £129 / €149 and additional camera licenses at just £64 / €74 each, Xprotect Express offers an affordable CCTV surveillance platform that goes beyond the limitations of XProtect Essential but does not have the price tag of XProtect Professional.

So, what does XProtect Express give you?


A Move Towards HD – Sony Discontinuations and Replacements

September 21st, 2011 by David

Sony HD security cameras - Connect your vision

Here at NW Systems we like to keep you up to date with new and exciting products in the world of IP cameras. Today’s list of updates involves Sony, who are discontinuing a range of IP security cameras and have replaced them with models all delivering HD quality video.

With HD technology now incorporating itself into the world of CCTV cameras, footage and still images are becoming sharper, clearer and easier to manage, while at the same time the popularity of H.264 ensures that valuable bandwidth is not sacrificed at the expense of the much improved image quality.


September Special Offers

September 8th, 2011 by David

We’ve added some more great deals for the month of September, including deals on IP security cameras from Sony, Axis, Panasonic & Vivotek, with free software and PoE midspans.


FAQ: Can I View My IP Camera With My Phone?

August 25th, 2011 by Kevin Bowyer

With the improvements to mobile phone hardware and the reduction in prices for bandwidth, it’s no wonder that many people are trying to integrate their phones with their security systems. The benefits are great; while away from home you can immediately log into your cameras and ensure that nothing is wrong.

However, despite the fact that modern phones are powerful, they are not fully fledged computers, meaning that there are limitations which can prevent video or images from being displayed.

We’ve taken a look at some of the main IP camera manufacturers to see how their cameras cope with mobile viewing, and explore any limitations found.
