System Surveyor Adds Next Level of Area of Coverage Control

Graphical system design tool continues to add user community-driven features

Austin, TX, February 8, 2017System Surveyor, a mobile and graphical system design and management tool that simplifies system design, installation and maintenance, announces the release of version 3.6.5 which delivers major enhancements to the Area of Coverage (AoC) coverage tool used to show coverage areas for cameras, motion detectors and other devices. With the explosive growth of surveillance cameras, security professionals now have the capability to “drag and drop” cameras on a floor plan or site plan and easily adjust the intended field of view for a complete picture of surveillance coverage, whether for a campus, enterprise or small retail location.

Specific additions include:

  • Users can now adjust the direction, angle and even depth of the Area of Coverage with touch and drag gestures
  • The numeric depth and angle of the AoC is automatically calculated based upon the survey scale.
  • Users can also:
    • enter a numeric for the angle or depth and the AoC will automatically adjust.
    • change colors of the Area of Coverage to distinguish between coverage areas.
    • toggle the AoC shown on the screen between full, short and none to reduce on-screen clutter.
    • change the transparency of the AoC.

In addition, a new magnifier option is available to assist with precise placement of elements and scale settings.

“We continue to work closely with our user community to improve the value and usefulness of System Surveyor with every release.  In this version, we worked very hard to enhance the Area of Coverage functionality while also maintaining the ease of use.  According to our integrator customers, the ability to show the complete system coverage and collaborate interactively with clients during the initial concept stage has proven to be a huge benefit of System Surveyor.” said Chris Hugman, CEO.
