09/18/2015– With so many new technologies coming out and becoming affordable to larger audiences, it is no surprise that home monitoring is becoming a trend. Whether you are trying to sneak a peek at a mischievous pet, keep an eye on the kids, or catch a burglar in the act, you can now put together a DIY security system with a regular webcam or USB camera and your Thecus NAS. This is all made possible by the Orbweb.me application that comes with the Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials NAS.
Video Recording and Snapshot
With Orbweb.me on Thecus NAS, users can go beyond the simple webcam function of just watching a live stream. Orbweb.me allows users to take real-time snapshots and videos that are then saved to your Thecus NAS. With support for multiple webcams, this can be done from different locations meaning you can cover a lot of ground. This allows you to keep your eyes on home even when you are away.
Turn on Motion Detection
The Motion Detection feature allows users to turn their webcam into a motion-sensing security device in just a few clicks. If motion is detected a notification will be sent to the app or can be set to have notifications sent via email.
Orbweb.me allows users to capture over 100 surveillance videos and photos, meaning you can archive quite a bit of content. With all of this data, convenient management is a must and this is provided with 3 management methods including preview, timeline and sorting, and the ever-efficient 365-day timeline that allows you to search directly at a point-in-time.
The robust offerings of Orbweb.me allow users to monitor their homes while avoiding the costs of a full-scale surveillance system. The Ultimate Verison comes bundled free with the Thecus Windows Storage Server Essentials NAS.
You can download the mobile application from Google Play and the App Store. To update the latest Orbweb.me version on your PC, go to: https://orbweb.me/ (latest Java version is required).
