Control4 Drivers Now Available for IC Realtime Dual Core Series Surveillance Video Recorders

Pure ethernet drivers deliver picture previewing and streaming video in Control4 environment, thus eliminating the need for costly 3rd party video encoders, granting a lower bottom line for a higher level of integration. Drag-and-drop setup makes for fast-and-easy configuration.

Pompano Beach, FL - March 12, 2013 - IC Realtime, a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced visual surveillance solutions for residential and commercial applications, now has Control4™ drivers for its Dual Core series of NVRs, DVRs and HD DVRs.


The drivers, developed by Extra Vegetables, bring enhanced functionality to the recorders in the Control4 environment - namely picture previewing and streaming video. Installers can also take advantage of technical support from IC Realtime should they need assistance loading the driver into Control4's Composer design software.

According to IC Realtime Integrated Technologies Manager Christoffer Callaway, the driver is designed to be extremely easy to load. "Drag-and-drop the driver into your project, point to the IP address and you're done. It's that simple," says Callaway.

"The increased functionality also benefits end-users in that they can take advantage of a centralized interface that manages total home control as well as surveillance," adds Callaway.
"In other words, users don't have to leave the Control4 environment to access the IC Realtime system. That's a really nice convenience."
