DETEXI NVR Control Center
DETEXI NVR Control Center is the DETEXI NVR Graphic User Interface (GUI) and
serves as a tool for communication between administrator and the DETEXI NVR.
Once the DETEXI NVR has been installed on your computer, the NVR Control Center
allows you to start and stop the server as well as modify server settings if needed.
If DETEXI NVR Server and any cameras in the system are separated by a proxy
server, you may need to enter the appropriate proxy settings.
DETEXI NVR handles all communication with the cameras/video servers that are
included in the system. It also handles recordings, events and user management in
the system. The underlying structure of the DETEXI NVR consists of individual
services, registered as Windows Services which allow to execute and organize all
the tasks it is responsible for.
Local DETEXI Client
Local DETEXI Client installed automatically along with the DETEXI NVR is useful
system administrator tool for testing user configuration and basic functionality. It
only connects to the local DETEXI NVR, does not require the NVR services to be
running, and does not require authentication (authentication features are
disabled).
Remote DETEXI Client
Remote DETEXI Client installed automatically along with the DETEXI NVR
installation enables connection to any authorized DETEXI NVR available anywhere
on the Internet or corporate network for remote viewing and control. Requires
NVR settings configuration and authentication.
DETEXI Archive Viewer
Installed automatically with the DETEXI NVR installation connects local and/or
remote users to the DETEXI NVR recorded video (NVR archive) for video retrieval
and export. For remote users permission/authentication is required.
NVR Status Checker
NVR Status Checker installed automatically with the DETEXI NVR installation has
been developed for further improvement of the DETEXI Reliability System. It
launches from the Start menu and allows system administrators to check the
system essential functionality of the NVRs it is connected to at any given time.

installation allows users to export, or back up recorded video in a proprietary file
format along with a proprietary player — restricted DETEXI Archive Viewer, while

advantages of using the native recording format are: additional security and data
integrity as well as advanced playback features. Additionally, the proprietary
format is more difficult to edit and can be used to preserve the chain of evidence.

GUI for the Alarm Server service responsible for raising alarms via the text-tospeech engine, e-mail and other mediums. Alarm Server service (Alarm Central in
earlier versions) is configured as an automatic Windows service and starts at
