- Body-worn and mobile cameras
- Audio devices
- Detectors and sensors

Easily integrate your devices into Milestone XProtect
There are two ways of integrating data from a camera, sensor or device into XProtect:
- For ONVIF compliant devices: Technology partners may utilize generic ONVIF drivers developed by Milestone. Find out more.
- For none-ONVIF compliant devices: Technology partners may develop their own drivers via the Milestone MIP Driver framework. Find out more.

- Servers and workstations
- Displays and video walls
