XProtect: Easy to use

Milestone continually strives to make XProtect VMS easy to use, so we offer three flexible ways for users to view surveillance: XProtect® Smart Client, Milestone 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 XProtect VMS 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.

Quick and easy to install

  • One-step installer: With one click, all necessary system information is automatically gathered, simplifying the installation process

  • Automatic configuration wizard: XProtect Go is easy to set up with a wizard that removes time delays and challenges during initial XProtect VMS deployment

  • Automatic camera discovery: Automatically detects and configures new cameras that are added to an existing system, enabling users to quickly expand their installation

Perfect for small businesses

  • Powered by XProtect Smart Client: XProtect Go features XProtect Smart Client, the same powerful interface for security operators and daily users that is found in premium products. It gives users access to live and recorded video, search capabilities and evidence export and is available in 27 languages

  • Small-scale solution: Supports up to eight cameras, one user and retains video for five days

  • Wide selection of cameras: XProtect Go supports more than 3,000 cameras, including many USB cameras and even your computer’s built-in web camera

IP video surveillance starts here

  • Additional clients: XProtect Go is also compatible with the simplified clients, Milestone Mobile and XProtect Web Client, giving you the ability to view your surveillance on all the most common smartphones, tablets and computers
