Agilicus AnyX versus TeamViewer

Shinobi NVR

Shinobi pairs well with Agilicus AnyX: use Shinobi on the local site, configure it to monitor all of your cameras, then, use Agilicus AnyX to make seamless web-based access with strong authentication, anywhere, on any network. Yes, even with Starlink and CGNAT.

In this guide we show a simple set of instructions to get Shinobi going on Linux or Windows, and then an instruction to get the web interface available via Agilicus AnyX.
