INNOVATIVE SOFTWARE PROVIDES REMOTE REAL-TIME VIDEO SECURITY FOR FAMILY AND BUSINESS
Catch Child Abuse, a Robbery, or Employee Mischief
from any Net-enabled PC, PDA or Cellphone
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jan. 27, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Philex Enterprises Inc.
(www.visec.net) announces a new software application called Visec(tm) that
allows parents or employers to remotely monitor activity in a home or business
using a PC and any low-cost webcam for security purposes. Easy set-up can be
accomplished without technical expertise in less than 5 minutes.
With any simple webcam, Visec can monitor a room and record video on a user's
computer when motion is detected. Innovative security features such as "stealth
mode" allow monitoring of a room via a PC running Visec -- even if the PC is
being used by an employee or family member. This maximizes the use of a
workplace by utilizing existing home-office computers, without having to set-up
a dedicated system for security monitoring purposes.
Like a traditional surveillance system comprising a video camera and VCR,
Visec's video history feature allows you to playback surveillance during
specified times such as when you're away from home or out of the office.
Designed for both consumers and professionals, Visec includes high-end features
like PDA and mobile-phone notification which traditional surveillance systems
don't offer. Visec emails an alert (with an image) when motion is detected
within the system's view. A built-in web server allows remote access of the
system by the owner via the Internet including video history and even a live
"Visec makes video surveillance for security purposes available to anybody,"
said Jason K. Bordbar, V.P. Sales/Marketing. "Normal video cameras and VCRs
allow you to view activity in the past, Visec allows you to view what's
happening right now as well as what transpired in the past. And with
motion-detection and email alerts, you'll know immediately if someone enters
your home or business -- no matter where you are."
Visec is Windows compatible, including Windows XP and supports multiple serial,
USB, FireWire, and even regular RCA type webcams. The SRP is $79.95 which
includes 24/7 tech support, and a 30-day money back guarantee. A trial version
is available for download at www.visec.net.
"With all the risks of letting someone into your home or business -- whether
babysitters, nannies or employees -- knowing what these visitors are doing is
essential for your safety," said Dr. J.L. Simmons, PhD, co-author of '76 Ways to
Protect Your Child from Crime' and '67 Ways to Protect Seniors from Crime'
(Henry Holt). "Numerous abuse cases concerning children and the elderly have
been discovered due to video surveillance. Employee theft and malicious acts
have similarly been uncovered. So video security solutions like Visec can
provide real peace of mind."
Visec was developed and is distributed by Philex Enterprises, Inc. a
high-technology solutions company founded in Northridge, CA in 1994.
