Milestone Kite: A Cloud-Based Video Management System

Milestone Kite as a Video Monitoring Solution

Cloud-based video management systems are in high demand from consumers over traditional, on-site VMS products. We are starting to see an increase in products from manufacturers to meet this demand, but many of these VMS products are designed for large-scale facilities, and small to mid-sized businesses are left behind. However, our partners at Milestone Systems have a new cloud-based video system perfect for these smaller buildings: Milestone Kite.

Milestone Kite is cloud-based Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) that is an ideal, cost-effective solution for small to mid-size customers with low bandwidth requirements such as banks, schools, or retail buildings.

Features and Benefits of Milestone Kite:

  • Quick, simple installation
  • Easy-to-use
  • Scalable for multisite facilities
  • Hybrid video storage, accessible on-site or via the cloud
  • Open architecture

Milestone Kite operates through a gateway device that facilitates the connection to the cloud management server. Because of this, the gateway is required in all deployments and may require some end user IT departments to be involved from the outset of the installation to ensure proper network connections are enabled. Once installed, building or security managers can view live or recorded camera feeds remotely, and will no longer need to physically visit the building. And because it’s scalable for single site or multi-site deployments, it’s a great solution for customers with many facilities, as you can view all buildings from the VMS rather than have separate video systems to monitor or maintain.

Milestone Kite is incredibly easy to use and is perfect for companies that may not have a complex or robust team dedicated to all facets of building security. Milestone Systems is committed to open platforms which means you won’t be locked in to one specific product or manufacturer. Instead, Milestone Kite will work with any manufacturer or camera model on the market, giving you flexibility in the products you choose.

If you have a small to mid-size building and are interested in an easy-to-use, low-maintenance video management system to improve the security of your building, look no further than Milestone Kite.
