Milestone's Smallest NVR Points to Future of Connected Devices
Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), announces new enhancements to its Milestone Husky M10, the smallest footprint in its series of Milestone Husky network video recorders (NVRs). The enhancements are the first step in the game plan for the Milestone Incubation Business Unit toward an interconnected and integrated world of intelligent security devices.
The Milestone Husky M10 can be an edge-recording device in a network or a stand-alone device. This announcement is aligned with the new Milestone Husky series' improvements announced April 7, and is more proof of Milestone's thought leadership in advanced visual business optimization.
Advanced mobile client is key to meeting demands for distributed security
An important feature for the Milestone Husky M10 is Video Push in the Milestone Mobile client. This enables a smartphone or tablet running the Milestone Mobile client to act as a mobile security camera, pushing video to the Milestone Husky M10 network video appliance using a mobile or WiFi network. This provides on-the-go video documentation and immediate awareness of incidents, and it requires no setup – just download the phone application, connect to the Milestone Husky M10 and go.
With the sharply rising demand for entry-level monitoring solutions based on open platform technology, the sleek Milestone Husky M10 is designed to provide even more power in a small box, which can be a smart building block in a robust, connected security infrastructure.
The Milestone Husky M10 now comes in configurations with 4 or 8 channels and up to 2 TB storage enabling the device to be used in solutions where long retention of recordings is needed. Additionally, the device supports more than 2,600 native camera drivers – giving the freedom to choose optimal camera devices for every installation.
Scaling up with Milestone Interconnect enables central management and local edge recording
The Milestone open platform technology in the Milestone Husky M10 enables the NVR to be an intelligent edge-recording device, which allows for distributed systems that point to a future where networked video systems will give unlimited scalability.
The Milestone Husky M10, like the Milestone Husky M30 and the Milestone Husky M50, can use Milestone Interconnect to connect remote sites to XProtect Corporate VMS for central command and control. This enables a site with a Milestone Husky M10 to be operated locally or remotely, which could be through a central control center or by a service provided from a Milestone Partner.
"I am truly excited about the possibilities that edge recording devices can bring to networked visual security solutions," said Lars Nordenlund, VP, Incubation & Ventures at Milestone Systems. "We are building on the success of the Milestone Husky series of devices and the endless possibilities in our open platform technology. To us interconnectivity is a natural line of thought for product extensions. The best is yet to come."
