Alarm monitoring and response are key elements for monitoring large surveillance systems. With hundreds or thousands of cameras, many users prefer to receive important information rather than attempting to watch all their cameras.
While Milestone is a well known VMS vendor, none of its VMS versions, including Enterprise and Corporate directly support alarm management. To do so one has to add XProtect Central.
In this test, we examine XProtect Central Version 3.7 to better understand the usability and setup of adding in alarm management.
Key questions users should consider:
- Do you need alarm management?
- How well can you monitor your system with functionalities split between the VMS client and the Central client?
- What level of complexity and cost does adding in Central incur on your deployment?
Review releated test reports on Milestone's Corporate VMS version and the new version of Milestone's Client (Smart Client 5.0).
