Key Features:
  • Monitor non-intrusively: recordings are not visible to the user of the monitored computer.
  • Handle screen recordings like video data: streams captured by Screen Recorder are handled in the same way as a camera stream and can be viewed live, recorded and played back. Video streams are easily bookmarked and exported.
  • Record multiple screens: freely select a recording of any single screen when monitoring computers with multiple screens. A combined recording of all screens connected to a monitored computer can be selected providing users with a simple overview.
Screen recorder can be used for staff management and training to ensure maximum productivity and for transaction monitoring to audit staff activities and verify transactions and maintain any account of fraudulent activities.


This add-on makes it possible for users to integrate access control into your software. XProtect Access, video-enables physical security in all aspects of assessing, tracking, assisting and investigating attempts to gain access to a physical area. From one centralised interface users can manage both video cameras and access control system.

The integrated two-way audio function controls doors and gates, helping the operator quickly detect, validate and act on access events within a single user interface.
  • Investigate and document: access events, related video and cards with the dedicated Access Control tab in the XProtect Smart Client. Powerful search functions make it easy to list all passages made by a specific card holder, or any passages through a specific door. You can instantly generate a PDF report based on your search, including video thumbnails and all related cardholder details.
This add-on works with all the Milestone XProtect VMS products. Users will need both the Access Base License to unlock all the add-on’s functions alongside the Door License to enable a single physical door.
