Commercial grade features at a fraction of the cost

Bluecherry’s Linux based software provides the commercial grade features you would typically find in Windows based solutions but at a fraction of the cost.  We support analog and network cameras.


Cross platform client

 Have a mixed office of Linux, Windows and OS X workstations?  No problem!  We provide a free cross platform remote client for Windows, Linux and OS X.  Easily connect to multiple systems and stream live video and view archived footage.




Advanced authentication

Have multiple employees at your business?  Only trust a few?  It happens and that’s why we have support for per user authentication.  Only allow certain users to access certain areas of the software.  Hide a camera, restrict their hourly access or prevent them from logging in from home.

Remote access

Want to watch your business while on the road?  No problem!  With an iPhone or Android device you can connect with a web browser and view live video.  We also have a free Windows remote client that you can connect multiple DVR installations together. 



Updates are easily downloaded from our Ubuntu repository.  You will not be forced to completely format and reinstall when updates are released.  Because our software is changing rapidly we provide free updates between major release cycles.  





Ease of use

No matter if you are installing this for a client or at home we’ve made the installation process simple (Seven steps).  The interface is easy to use buttons are large and the interface is easy to navigate.  Our developers speak English (as their first language) so you won’t ever be trying to decode Chinese-English.

We are improving our software on a daily basis.  We want input from our customers on how they would like to see the software changed or new features added.  We encourage our customers to post feature requests so we can easily track them.  Feel free to browse our community supported idea tracker.
