Ease of Use

The Hamilton Family Center located in San Francisco, USA, needed a network video recorder that could help staff monitor incidents quickly and efficiently. The Milestone Husky M30 meets those requirements and gives the HFC a recording solution that is easy to install and use.

Training sessions are so easy, and the intuitive interface and simplicity of creating and managing views means we never have to teach someone twice.
