Function List

Real-time Monitoring

HOWEN VSS CMS provides professional live surveillance service for managers or operators. Users can choose main streaming or sub streaming for vehicle monitoring depends on the resolutions and Internet speed. Usually sub streaming real-time monitoring is suggested when the devices are connected with 3G/4G network.

“Quick Snapshot” is one of convenient function that HOWEN specifically designed for users as managers usually need to do snapshotting the pictures directly without going to “playback”. Further, once users clicked the “snapshot”, the picture of selected channel will be popped up automatically and stored in the file set up in the configuration of VSS CMS. The path will be shown up and the name will be record by the date.

Besides the live monitoring, there are many extended functions are developed for both drivers and operators in the control rooms. For example, remote PTZ camera controlling, which is one of important function for police car, firefighting truck solutions. In the HOWEN VSS, two way audio function is one of the key features since control centers usually need to confirm with drivers’ situations. When the Howen mobile DVR connects with Howen two-way audio device, control room can start a talk or broadcasting to vehicles. On the other hand, drivers can request a talk to control room. It is really useful function in daily operation.
