Milestone XProtect Express video management and recording software, base license, expandable up to 48 IP cameras

Overview of Milestone XProtect Express

Milestone XProtect software offers an affordable video recording solution for IP security systems, allowing connection for up to 48 IP cameras.

XProtect is an open platform, making it compatible with over 1000 different IP camera models, recording devices and encoders from around 100 different manufacturers, providing an ideal recording solution for a wide range of IP surveillance systems.

Suitable for use in single-server installations, XProtect Express also supports archiving to network-attached storage at a greater capacity than XProtect Essential, Milestone's entry-level recording software. This in turn enables more cameras to run efficiently per server, providing a long-term, cost-effective storage solution for CCTV footage.

Video Motion Detection (VMD) is a key feature of XProtect Express, driven by the software regardless of camera make or model. Settings can be independently configured to suit different IP camera models, and a range of recording triggers can be set up, including adjustable sensitivity, e-mail and SMS alerts, exclusion zones, privacy masking and increased frame rate upon motion detection.

Dual Streaming support provides high-quality CCTV recording while also allowing live footage to be viewed at a lower resolution, helping to save on bandwidth and network resources. With support for both audio recording from multiple IP cameras and microphones, as well as integration with access controls and point-of-sale systems, XProtect Express provides an all-round surveillance solution for areas such as retail outlets, as well as small and medium-sized businesses.

System configuration wizards are supported in 26 languages and help to streamline the setup process, providing a helpful guide for processes such as adding cameras, camera configuration, scheduling of recordings, managing system users and adjustment of motion detection settings.

The easy-to-use Smart Client Player interface provides system control across the entire XProtect product range and provides a number of features that allow for easy video monitoring. Footage can be exported using an in-house player, allowing it to be viewed by third-parties, including the police, without the need for additional software.


XProtect base licenses are for installation on a single server and include 2 camera licenses (allows connection of 2 cameras onto the system). Additional camera licenses for XProtect Express can be purchased separately.

Licensing structure

  • XProtect Express Base License
    The base license is required for installation of XProtect Express on your server. The license is for single-server installation only. The base license includes two camera licenses, allowing you to connect two IP cameras to the system
  • XProtect Express Camera License
    In addition to the base license a camera license is required for every IP camera or video encoder channel you wish to add your system. To buy camera licenses please go to Milestone XProtect Express camera license.
  • Software Upgrade Plan (SUP)
    We recommend purchasing a Software Upgrade Plan (SUP) with each license so that your system remains up-to-date and is more future proof. Milestone releases updates (which they call Device Packs) almost every two months, which may contain bug fixes, give you additional features and wider camera support. SUPs are bought by choosing from the drop-down menu above.
