Milestone XPEXBL overview

  • 1Description

The XProtect Express Base License from Milestone Systems enables you to install and use the features of the XProtect Express application.

XProtect Express is an open-platform IP video management software (VMS) application designed for small businesses, especially retail. It is for businesses with one location with up to 48 surveillance cameras and can support five concurrent users. The XProtect Express software is created for businesses that want to incorporate video into their existing business operations. With support for video analytics and third-party applications, this software allows you to create a custom surveillance solution with one common interface.

The XProtect Express software features unique software wizards, which swiftly guide you through the process of adding cameras, configuring video, scheduling recordings, adjusting motion detection settings, and managing system users. Software installation features a wizard, which scans your system and automatically detects connected hardware. The XProtect Express software supports an add-on product called XProtect Retail, which performs advanced data analysis with advanced search options; full video documentation and a set of pre-defined performance indicators, so that you can maintain a comprehensive overview of store operations. It also supports another add-on product called XProtect Transact, which enables you to quickly perform a text-only search and view video of specific transactions, such as those involving gift cards, credit cards, coupons, or returned merchandise.

The XProtect Express software allows you to purchase XProtect Express licenses on a per-camera basis, efficiently expand your surveillance installation, and take advantage of new camera technologies as they come to market. Milestone Systems' unified platform facilitates development and application of integrated solutions into XProtect Express.

Note: 1) Camera licenses are sold separately. 2) The XProtect Express client modules XProtect Smart Client, XProtect Smart Client - Player, XProtect Web Client, and XProtect Mobile are not licensed and can be installed and used on any number of terminals.
