Install DETEXI Software
Cameras and licenses can be added one by one and the system hardware and/or software can be expanded to meet increased performance requirements.
The DETEXI NVR will limit the number of video inputs (network cameras or analogue cameras connected to video encoders) and the number of simultaneous Remote Client connections based on the NVR’s license.
License Types
Base and Upgrade Licenses
To purchase the DETEXI Video Management System software you should acquire a base license for a defined number of video inputs (network cameras or analogue cameras connected to video encoders). A base license includes DETEXI NVR and 1 Remote DETEXI Client simultaneous connection. The first license installed on the system must be a base license. Thereafter, customers may purchase additional upgrade licenses to upgrade the number of video inputs and/or simultaneous connections.
Support & Software Upgrade Licenses
Purchase of 1 or 2-year support license is required for all DETEXI software products. It will grant you technical telephone support (8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET) and software upgrades as needed for a defined period of time. UCIT Online recommends that support licenses be constantly renewed for continuous technical support and future software upgrades.
  • With the DETEXI software demo version and the DETEXI Remote Client freeware UCIT Online — the software developer does not offer any product support.
Multi-site Connectivity Base and Upgrade Licenses
In order to manage a distributed NVR network (domain) a child-domain base license should be purchased. Thus, it becomes possible to control remotely from the DETEXI NVR Domain Controller the group of several NVRs that are logically attached to it.
The license includes the DETEXI NVR Domain Controller and defines a number of child NVRs in the NVR network. 5 Remote DETEXI Client simultaneous connections are also included.
To add defined number of child NVRs to the multi-site NVR network purchase child upgrade license.
  • If 5 NVRs logically attached to the main NVR (NVR Domain Controller) are required you’ll need to buy 5-child-domain base license.
  • No video inputs included
Integration Licenses (Add-ons)
In order to get the DETEXI System modules that integrate different mechanical and electronic security solutions such as access control devices, building management systems and industrial control systems an appropriate license should be purchased.
