XProtect Professional is comprehensive open platform video management software (VMS) for mid-sized installations with multiple buildings. XProtect Professional offers users a complete visual overview of their surveillance installation with interactive maps that show camera locations.

Alarms displayed directly in the maps make it easy to quickly identify and address incidents throughout the entire system. If an incident occurs, efficient video search tools enable users to easily find relevant video clips and export evidence.

Milestone Interconnect enables centralized operation of multiple XProtect sites. The Customer Dashboard service allows the performance of XProtect Professional installations to be monitored.
