Panasonic MonitorCast 4.5 is Now available

Panasonic i-PRO is happy to announce that MonitorCast 4.5 is ready for release and the updated admin guide is now available for download.

Licensing Update with the 4.5 Release
The licensing structure has shifted from cameras to Mercury hardware. The MonitorCast door license will be bundled with the Mercury panels when purchased through Panasonic i-PRO (e.g. the LP1502 has two doors, so it
is bundled with two licenses). This is also the case with the sub-controllers. The MR50 has one door, so it will come with one license.

MonitorCast Mobile
MonitorCast Mobile for iOS is in its final testing phase and will be submitted to the Apple store soon. The first version will include the following:
• Dashboard – View real-time events
• Personnel – Can view and modify personnel as well as disable or enable card access
• Door Management – Doors can be controlled from the mobile device just like the web UI
• Hardware – Door/reader mode status is viewable as well as sending resets to some or all controllers

New 4.5 Features
• ASSA Abloy Aperio wireless lock on integration added
• Keypad Intrusion – Changed LED reader modes and text on MRDT panels
• Keypad Intrusion – Arm/disarm inputs assigned for intrusion detection
• Keypad Intrusion – Added audio alert to the intrusion rule. Custom audio alerts can be uploaded to the server
• Area Reports – Added a personnel group filter to improve searching capabilities
• Rules Manager – Designed personnel roles for reader mode and output control that can be user specific based on level of role assigned
• Rules Manager – First card unlock that will disable door schedules until a manager presents their credentials
