Easy to use

Milestone continually strives to make XProtect VMS easy to use, so we offer three flexible ways for users to access surveillance: XProtect Smart Client, XProtect Mobile and XProtect Web Client. Depending on where you are and what features you need, you can choose the mobile device or computer you prefer to use and whether you want to access Milestone surveillance on-site, off-site or on-the-go. And because all of our clients are free of charge, you can use all three or any combination of the clients based on your preferences.
