If you have a Milestone XProtect (2016 or higher) Server you can use send it alarms using a specialized notifier, namely Milestone Notifier, implementing the XML protocol supported by Milestone XProtect.
Using such a notifier you can send any kind of alarms supported by AI-Dash PRO to Milestone XProtect:
You can find Milestone in the left hand side menu under Notifiers in the Configuration section. If it is the first time you add a Milestone Notifier you will see an empty notifiers list.
Of course, if you have multiple servers you can configure different notifiers for each of them!
Click on New Milestone Notifier to create a new notifier.
You are required to give a name to the notifier (it will be shown inside the select menu when you need to use it) and the basic information to connect to Milestone:
If everything is ok, you will see the new notifier in the list.
Now you can use it!
For instance, if you need to notify an alarm to Milestone XProtect you will find your notifier in the notifier list allowed for the alarms, as shown below.
That's all! It very easy to do! And now, have fun with AI-Dash PRO and Milestone XProtect!
