Increase ease of use, flexibility, and security with updated firmware from XProtect, raised number of supported channels, and new device packs.

Reduce Maintenance time by updating firmware in XProtect

Regular firmware updates are an integral part of keeping installations safe and well-functioning. But executing these updates is a tedious task. In this release, we help operators gain back precious time with the ability to update firmware directly in XProtect.

Watch the tutorial

Now, system administrators with supported device brands* can complete updates from a single user interface, saving time and energy. Bulk updates for devices in XProtect Corporate and XProtect Expert are also possible.

*This feature supports devices from AXIS, Bosch and Hanwha. It also supports devices connected through the ONVIF driver.

Product Compatibility
Available in XProtect Essential+, XProtect Express+, XProtect Professional+, XProtect Expert and XProtect Corporate.

Raising the number of supported driver channels

With Milestone, security professionals already have a wide range of integration options. Now, this flexibility is extended to include integrations for more multi-channel devices such as encoders and NVRs with more than 16 channels or large-scale body worn systems.

The cap on supported channels has skyrocketed to 512, giving professionals more freedom of choice. This is a vast improvement from the 16-channel limit for ONVIF and the 64-channel limit for the Universal Driver.
Partners building their own integrations with the Milestone Driver API/SDK, can now enjoy complete freedom, going from a 1-channel limit support for an unlimited number of channels.
