It is easier than ever to keep current with the latest advancements and upgrade your XProtect system. When updating to a new version of the same product, the installer automatically obtains a license for the latest software version. When upgrading from one XProtect VMS to a more advanced product, re-installation of the software is no longer required. You can also see notifications about software releases and new device packs in the Management Application when the system is online.

Depending on where you are and what features you need, you can choose the mobile device or computer you prefer to use and whether you want to access XProtect VMS on-site, off-site or on-the-go. And because all of our clients are free of charge, you can use all three or any combination of the clients based on your preferences.
