DETEXI IP Video Security is a complete monitoring and recording system for use with network cameras and video servers. The application provides quick and easy access to all connected and configured cameras, recordings, inputs and outputs used in the system.
DETEXI NVR (Server) handles the communication with the cameras while DETEXI Client provides quick and easy access to connected and configured cameras, recordings, inputs and outputs used in the system. Multiple Clients can be connected to the same NVR. A Client can be connected to multiple NVRs.
  • A background service in Windows, DETEXI NVR will start automatically upon system start-up and continue running even after the user logs out.
  • All dialogs that allow control and configuration of all aspects of the DETEXI NVR are found under the NVR Control Center, the NVR Graphic User Interface (GUI).

Network Configuration
DETEXI NVR can record and play back video from cameras that are connected over a LAN (Local Area Network) or over a WAN (Wide Area Network).
LAN — The cameras can be connected directly to the PC server running the DETEXI NVR using an Ethernet network.
Internet (WAN) — To access DETEXI NVR from the Internet and get live images from the cameras you must open a set of IP addresses and port numbers in your firewall configuration.
