"With our pre-loaded software, automatic camera detection, and video configuration wizards, the surveillance is up and running in no time at all."
Users need only configure the cameras, and they can use built-in wizards to guide them through the process. Additionally, XProtect Essential NVR has a consolidated single-management interface and search tools.

XProtect supports a wide choice in network video camera and encoder brands and models, allowing a mix to fit different needs. Customers can efficiently transition from analog to IP, continuing to use existing devices while blending in IP security technology over time.
