Ivideon for Linux (old version)

Ivideon software for Linux

Attention! This version of Ivideon for Linux is out of date. It still works, we still support it, and you can download and install it. But we do not develop it any longer, and it lacks all new Ivideon Server features — like motion detector zone configuration, PTZ, archive recording schedule, etc. We strongly recommend to use it only if you really need to work with your Ivideon Server via LAN (using its web interface).
