"The Boring Toolbox has become an integral part of our daily operation as we support our Milestone systems around the country. Now that we have surpassed 10,000 cameras, we would be unable to effectively maintain our systems without Boring. The suite of tools offered within the Boring Toolbox is truly a force multiplier and allows our small department to maintain our camera systems with ease. As if that were not enough, Ronin and Dani have supported us every step of the way and are constantly updating us on new developments. If all companies had this level of customer service, there would be far less problems in the world! Anyone running Milestone without Boring Toolbox is truly missing out!"

"Firstly, this amazing software enabled my team and I to consolidate and manage all previous passwords for our IP cameras giving us the ability to streamline our major security server upgrade. Secondly, I have never experienced such outstanding customer service, going above and beyond to ensure our user experience was premium, I couldn't recommend this software more, that and coupled with the service it's second to none."

"Since starting to use the Boring Toolbox it has helped to make management of the surveillance system much more manageable. The dashboard provides a quick overview of the entire system. This makes it much easier to locate and isolate issues. Managing passwords used to be a pain to say the least, the boring toolbox has dramatically reduced the time required to manage and change passwords."

"The Boring Toolbox has helped save countless hours by taking the mundane tasks of password changes, and other bulk changes and speeding them up to a matter of minutes instead of many hours.
