Add login credentials for multiple servers in the
Milestone Mobile client to easily switch between sites or
different connection addresses
Views are inherited from the connected XProtect VMS
system. The client automatically obtains the user’s
private and shared views from the system to be used as
camera lists in the Milestone Mobile client
A view with all cameras is automatically generated,
allowing the Milestone Mobile client to be used when no
views are set up. It also provides a quick way of
searching through cameras
Cameras can be viewed in full screen to take better
advantage of the device’s screen. It is also possible to
search through cameras in a view while in full screen by
swiping left or right
Digital pinch to zoom enables users to zoom in on a
part of the image for closer review and conduct detailed
investigation of video when using megapixel or highdefinition cameras
Playback recordings from the database and select a
specific time or recorded sequence to start playback,
step through recordings and select a playback speed.
View recordings from the database while keeping an
eye on what is currently happening. The client displays
a live picture-in-picture frame of the same camera when
in playback mode. The picture-in-picture can be moved
by dragging and double-tapping will return to live view
Control pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras with Milestone
Mobile either manually or by selecting predefined
presets for quick navigation
Video Push allows users to use their mobile devices’
cameras as cameras in your XProtect VMS. Easy to
use and requires no setup in the mobile device
Trigger outputs and events:
Use your mobile device to trigger outputs connected to
the XProtect VMS, or trigger user-defined events to
have greater control while on the go
Connect securely to the Milestone Mobile server using
HTTPS encryption
Export on the server to avoid moving large video files
back and forth. Only download needed files or save
them for downloading when on a faster connection
