Milestone’s large ecosystem offers endless opportunities
- actually second to none!


Why Open Platform matters

Milestone XProtect video management software (VMS) is based on a true open platform, which means it has a published application programming interface (API), allowing developers to alter the functionality of XProtect. The Milestone open platform enables you to add custom, best-in-class security solutions to your surveillance system, such as access control, cameras and video analytics.
