XProtect video management software
A surveillance solution that fits all needs
Milestone XProtect is powerful video management software (VMS)
that makes it easy to manage video surveillance systems. XProtect
VMS displays live video from surveillance cameras and enables
users to control cameras and search for recorded video. With a
wide array of features for very basic to advanced surveillance
needs, there is a Milestone XProtect VMS product for all installation sizes and environments. A flexible licensing model ensures it
is easy to upgrade from one XProtect product to another or add
additional cameras to the system at any time.
XProtect is based on an open platform, which means the software
is compatible with the industry’s widest choice of IP cameras and
encoders, giving users the freedom to mix and match hardware
to fit their needs and budget. The open platform also means that
users can benefit from integrating their video system with today’s
best analytics and business solutions and expand what is possible with future innovations. With XProtect, the possibilities are
unlimited.

Users have a choice of three flexible clients
to view each XProtect VMS product1: XProtect
Smart Client, XProtect Web Client and Milestone

clients give users the ability to access video from various locations as well as computers and mobile devices.

web-based interface that provides instant access to the most commonly used VMS features and functions. Users can view, play back

it works with the most common browsers and
computer operating systems, including Mac®
computers.
XProtect® Smart Client
Ultimate control
XProtect Smart Client is the interface for
daily operation of all XProtect VMS and has
capabilities for the most basic to the most
