Bosch / Milestone Forensic Search Tested

By: Sean Patton, Published on Jan 08, 2020

Bosch's Forensic Search Milestone plugin integrates Bosch IVA and EVA analytics search in Milestone XProtect, claiming to "gain complete control on how you want to search the data".

This is one of the first expanded metadata searches supported in Milestone's Centralized Search, which we tested recently.

We tested how Forensic Search works, examining:

  • Is it faster than searching motion events in Milestone?
  • How well is it integrated into Milestone's client?
  • How is Forensic Search enabled?
  • What issues were found?
  • What cameras are supported?
  • How does it compare to search offerings like Avigilon and BriefCam?
