Introducing the Line 8.1 global software update. New functions that expand the possibilities of your video surveillance system are ready for you, completely free. Just download the new Line 8.1. version.
What we added:
Free number plate recognition. The following number plates are currently supported: standard white single-line, white two-line, trailers, yellow taxis/buses, blue police, black military and number plates without region. The feature is provided under the Line IP license without additional payment.
New archive filters: number plate, people, faces, events, OSD.
Line Shorts – video notifications in Telegram that can be configured for different reactions using the Line bot.
Connect Line devices with a QR code. With the QR code generator, you can provide users with pre-configured hardware for easy installation.
Line 2MP Dome and Line 4MP Bullet now support two-way audio communication.
The Human Detector feature, which detects a person in the frame, is exclusive to Line 4MP Bullet cameras.
EcoMode is another feature for Line cameras that will save data usage if nothing is detected and nobody is viewing the cameras in real time.
There is a new convenient tool—OSD—for configuring how different information is displayed on the screen. This module can be widely used together with third-party systems.
Devices can now be assigned as NTP servers and specify their own NTP servers.
