As integrators installing Milestone, we have come up with our best practices and standard workflows to maximize efficiency and success. For the most part these workflows were developed around the tools we had built into Milestone XProtect.

We always talk about optimizing Milestone to perform better and be more efficient – let’s think about how we can do the same with our process and deployment.
Staging is an important part of the deployment process. If you are not doing this, you should. This is where you bench test all your devices to check for DOAs, update firmware, set IP addresses, NTP, close ports etc. That said, one of the most time consuming/delay inducing parts of staging is trying to get the IP address information back from the client or IT. You send the sheet and then wait and follow up. What if we prepped the cameras and left them at DHCP?
