Flussonic Agent is now available for Vesta with Hi3516EV200 chipset, Mstar MSC325, and Dahua Leo DH7300C cameras. Outdated locked pieces of DVR no longer accumulate. We fixed the issue when enabling motion detection events processing via ONVIF protocol for many cameras led to the Watcher UI became unresponsive. The stability of the face recognition algorithm is increased. Check the full list of fixes below and get your servers upgraded as soon as possible.

What’s New

  • #12339 (new) (Watcher) Added support of Armenian license plates in video analytics module.

Now an administrator can assign and edit this external Id for a person in a list of persons via Watcher UI.
