- Milestone software and device packs need to be at the latest versions.
- Milestone is no longer updating the Arecont Vision driver. The focus has shifted to ONVIF compatible cameras. Ensure the functions/features you want are compatible via ONVIF.
- Just because a device is ONVIF compliant does not mean all features/functions (i.e. motion) will be supported. See this link: https://www.onvif.org/conformant-products/ and filter it by CoStar Technologies and then look at the respective model. For example, the AV5255PMIR-SH (MegaDome 2 Series) is ONVIF Profile S compliant. Per the ONVIF Profile Feature Overview motion is not supported in Profile S. If motion is required, the camera must support motion detection and the Arecont Driver must be used when adding the camera to the VMS.
