Overview of the Milestone Husky X2
Part of the Milestone Husky X-Series, this high-performance ‘X2’ network video recorder (NVR) offers a scalable monitoring and recording solution for up to 133 IP cameras. The rack-mountable unit offers a maximum of 20TB storage and can be managed through any variant of the Milestone XProtect suite - making it a flexible choice for any small to mid-sized organisation. Additional features include an integrated Power-over-Ethernet switch (optional), four integrated I/O ports and 2-way audio support.
The Milestone Husky X2 can be supplied with a 16-port, integrated PoE+ management switch (please select from the dropdown menu above). This allows cameras to be connected directly, as well as simplifying the installation process and reducing the amount of cabling.
Featuring the latest in Skylake processors and offering 16GB of RAM, this powerful NVR also offers a verified continuous recording rate of up to 550Mbit/s – helping it to meet the demands of small to medium-sized surveillance applications. The ‘X2’ network video recorder features two drive bays and can be supplied with 4TB, 12TB, 16TB or 20TB of pre-installed Western Digital Purple HDD’s. Alternatively, this NVR is purchasable as an empty chassis with hard drive tray packs (please select the required model from the dropdown menu above).
Pre-loaded with eight XProtect Essential+ licences out-of-the-box; users have the ability to access higher levels of functionality and system scalability by replacing this free VMS with any of the paid XProtect video management software variants (purchase of a Milestone XProtect base and device licences are required). Access to the system is made easily available through the PC smart client, web client and via Milestone's mobile app.
Please note: to install Milestone XProtect Express+, Professional+, Expert or Corporate onto this NVR - a base licence, camera licences (single licence required for each device added to the system) and Care Plus will need to be purchased separately.
Users also have the ability to create a straightforward standalone solution, without the need of a PC, by connecting an HD monitor via the NVR’s integrated HDMI output. In addition, the four integrated I/O ports enable the connection of external devices to add an extra dimension to security and surveillance operations.
