Tuesday is our day for pushing out SecurityStation bug fixes and feature updates. This week we’ve made some small but useful changes. Read on for details.
Some of the more notable improvements include:
- Various mobile devices are now correctly recognised (i.e. you will see the mobile interface rather than the full screen UI);
- Events can no longer be turned back on when alerts and recording are set globally to off. This means that it’s no longer possible for plug and play cameras to (in a small number of cases) be in anomalous states, as was the case before;
- We’ve prevented the unlocking of aspect ratio on the live view for smaller image sizes. The unlock aspect ratio facility is great when you want to run a live view fullscreen to match the aspect ratio of your monitor. However, we found that doing this with smaller image resolutions resulted in lower quality output than some of you required.
In addition to these fixes, we’ve received feedback that some SecurityStation users prefer to be able to save their login details for quicker login the next time they visit the site. As a result we have now enabled the saving of login details in the browser, if required, both on desktop browsers and on iPhone/iPad and other handheld devices. This is particularly useful for checking events on handheld devices where entering login credentials can be, let’s face it, a bit of a chore, and slows down the often urgent need to view a live camera or watch some recorded footage.
We’ve also made some more behind-the-scenes changes to improve the stability of SecurityStation. We hope you find the fixes improve your SecurityStation experience, and please continue to let us know what features you’d like to see in future updates to service, either in the comments below or via securitystation.com.
