1 Introduction

With the exponential growth of wireless and mobile capability, the potential for instant and direct access to your security network via a mobile device has become reality. Welcome to 3xLOGIC's View Lite Smart Device application, a new solution to your mobile video surveillance and management needs.

With 3xLOGIC's View Lite you can use your Apple iOS or Android OS device to view live streams of all cameras connected to your 3xLOGIC VIGIL Server(s). View Lite is designed to connect and view both IP and analog cameras from a configured VIGIL Server. With a simple drag-and-drop interface, saved views and several different layout options, you can easily view up to 48 live cameras on your mobile device.

To compliment this core functionality, features such as VIGIL Connect, still image exports, full PTZ control (on applicable cameras), relays(DIOs), POS Search and full playback capability give View Lite a powerful feature set that far exceeds standard mobile video management offerings.
