Bug Fixes

Major Changes

  • Introducing Event Dismissing - The events interface, which shows a hybrid live / event view, now updates existing events and brings new events in real-time, with the ability to dismiss the event. This will hide the event from the default view without permanently deleting it.

    This is an ideal interface for environments that need to respond to real-time incoming events with an audit trail of who responded and after how long of a delay.


  • Interface polish across the board

Device Management

  • Deal with duplicate devices

  • You can now search by cameras and devices that are being monitored

Cloud Backup

  • Any flagged events that weren't cloud recorded on offline units at the time, will now automatically retry.

Bug Fixes

  • The full screen now works for cameras in "monitor" mode

  • Fixed being able to switch from "monitor" mode back to record mode, without needing to switch the camera off first


Major Changes

  • New Events - the events page was completely rewritten. The immediate improvements are it will now update in real-time as new events come in and it can be viewed as a list instead of as a thumbnail view.

    The new code driving this page means we can add many important improvements in the coming months including being able to dismiss events with a tap, being able to select multiple events at once for mass sharing / deleting, handing non-video surveillance events better and much more.

  • New process management on TetherBoxes - You may have noticed that sometimes when you toggle a camera on/off, it could take significant time to respond, especially when dealing with larger units, such as ones with 150 cameras on a single TetherBox.

    The way process management is handled was completely rewritten for speed and reliability and you should see significant improvements in the speed of commissioning new systems and changing settings on existing systems.

  • Significant Memory Optimisations - We changed how memory allocation works and optimised many parts of the software. This means the software should feel a lot more responsive and it also means existing units out there with less memory can be supported for many years to come.

Other Changes

    • There is a confirmation on the screen when a package is successfully updated

    • Show correct cancellation warning when cancelling a subscription

    • The "Update Plan" button should be orange and it should be greyed out (disabled) unless a change was made
