Security And Safety Things (S&ST) Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published Oct 22, 2020, 10:27am EDT

S&ST, a Bosch spinout, is spending tens of millions of dollars aiming to become the app store for the security industry, but how well does it work in the real world?

IPVM Image

To find out, we tested S&ST with two of the earliest available Vivotek models supporting S&ST (FD9392-EHTV-O and IE9111-O), examining:

  • How does S&ST compare to Axis' Camera Application Platform (ACAP)?
  • How hard is it to configure each device?
  • How hard is it to add apps?
  • How do apps perform?
  • Is the UI simple to use?
  • How do these apps integrate with Milestone Xprotect?
