What’s new in SECURITHOR 2.31?

We added quite a lot to SECURITHOR 2.31. More than 40 additions and changes were made since 2.30.

The lockdowns gave us time to work on several integrations. Big ones like AJAX Motioncam, DAHUA P2P, HIKVISION Hik-Proconnect and Hikvision AXPRO Panels. A new big module is available for 2.31 in cooperation with our Technology partner Cegitec:  MVP Map View and Plans.

A plan editor is available in account management to store plans and images. Special prices during the introduction phase.
