Milestone releases XProtect Mobile

December 21st, 2011 by Frank Crouwel

Xprotect Mobile for Milestone Xprotect

Milestone have released their XProtect Mobile application, allowing users of Milestone video management software to access their CCTV system while on the move. In this first release, support is available for Android-based phones and tablets with iPhone and iPad compatibility expected to follow in spring 2012 [update May 2012 – iPhone and iPad versions now available].

There are two components to get XProtect Mobile working for you. First there is a program that needs to be updated within your existing Milestone server. Secondly, there is an app to be loaded onto the mobile device. Both are available free of charge and can be downloaded from the Milestone website.

Once logged in to the system via your mobile you can watch live video, play back recorded events and control pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The software also allows users to quickly switch between multiple servers – handy for owners of multiple sites.

We’ll be taking a closer look at the XProtect Mobile system soon and let you know our findings. In the meantime, if you are interested, this new mobile facility is available across the full suite of Milestone XProtect CCTV software.

    Are the images of the phone/tablet running the app real? It looks like great picture quality. Will be amazing once it’s available for the iPad.

    We've tested the server and what you see in the images above are very close to the final result. We were impressed with the frame rate and the available functionality.
