XProtect: Easy to install

Milestone has reinvented the process of installing, configuring and using an IP video solution. With automatic configuration wizards and camera detection, it is easy to get up and running quickly with XProtect.

XProtect: Easy to upgrade

It is easier than ever to keep current with the latest advancements and upgrade your XProtect system. When updating to a new version of the same product, the installer automatically obtains a license for the latest software version. When upgrading from one XProtect VMS to a more advanced product, re-installation of the software is no longer required. You can also see notifications about software releases and new device packs in the Management Application when the system is online.

XProtect: Easy to maintain

The Milestone Customer Dashboard is an online system monitoring service that enables resellers to obtain real-time status updates of their customers' installations. With this monitoring system, resellers can keep track of even the simplest technical issue on a customer's installation and proactively solve it before it becomes a problem for the user.
