Stream up to 4k and 8k resolution.

Advanced Event and Action Manager
Specify the desired outcome of your video surveillance system's operation. Determine how the software reacts to any event caught on camera and how it turns events into an automated process.

For example, create Zones/Lines to alert on perimeter intrusion, loitering, and AI Classification of persons, vehicles, and animals. Become efficient with the information you see. Take advantage of the full potential of your video surveillance system with video content analysis. Improve the functionality of your surveillance while analyzing large amounts of data to determine a specific pattern in a particular task. 

Smarter Business Security
CORTROL connects video, locks, card readers, or door contacts via Cloud, delivering versatility to smart business security –  all at a very economical cost.  CORTROL Global is engineered for medium and large enterprise business space.

Maps provide a complete examination of the entire of cameras, delivering immediate visual verification. All the alerts are integrated with the maps and can be set up to be viewed on the overview as well — you can specify the location of the event immediately.

Web Access
Get permanent access to live streaming and archive video through your web browser.

Information Channels
Streaming branding, informational or urgent announcements

Alarm Acknowledgement
Make sure that no event skips the attention of the operator. An operator must confirm all alarms, automatically generating a bookmark towards the event in the archive. By requiring the operator to actions in a journal, there is a tracking of performed actions towards each event.

Integrations and API
CORTROL offers customizable integration with other software systems in the form of a software development kit (SDK), CORTROL RESTful API.

Mobile Applications
You can use your mobile device to access live and archived streams. Use PTZ presets, control 2-way audio, or the mobile phone camera to stream video and audio directly to the server.

Live Streaming
The streaming server can make a live cast of videos on a website or YouTube.

Edge Recording
You can synchronize all your data with IP device storage. With this feature, if the network connection with any camera is lost, the camera still records your data. It is fully transferred to your server as soon as the network connection is re-established.
