Orchid supports multiple recording styles, synchronized playback across cameras, custom camera layouts, and a simple camera search engine.

Our software uses WebRTC, a high-performance video technology that makes streaming video in the browser easy and simple, with no plugins.

If your connection isn’t great, you can still access your cameras with our adaptive low-bandwidth mode.

System health awareness

System health notifications will let you know if a camera is offline, your video is not recording to your hard drive, or a location is inaccessible, so you are never caught off guard.

Secure video transmission

Support has the answers.

I've never had any issues with them being snarky, not willing to help, or taking too long. If anything, there are several times that I think, "oh, they are already on it," and it's done. Typically with tech support, you put a ticket in and you may not even hear from anybody for a day or two, that's just not the case with IPConfigure.
