New firmware has been released for ClareVision NVRs in preparation for the release of our next generation ClareVision App. The new firmware adds native OvrC support, Control4 SDDP support, performance improvements and bug fixes, and support for upcoming features in the next weeks release of the new ClareVision app for ClareVision NVRs.
OvrC is now natively supported by all ClareVision NVRs! Dealers can now add a customer's NVR to their OvrC account, allowing them to remotely monitor the status of their customers NVRs, reboot, manage settings, and troubleshoot issues without having to travel onsite.
While OvrC support is only available for ClareVision NVRs at this time, look for a future update to ClareVision IP Cameras for native OvrC support.
SDDP is now supported for all ClareVision NVRs, allowing dealers to automatically discover and add ClareVision NVRs to their Control4 project. This update is further supported by the newly released combined camera and NVR driver. You can learn more about this driver HERE.
