Why choose the Milestone Husky M500 Advanced?

Ideal for complex, multi-site surveillance installations

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced goes beyond ordinary, all-in-one NVRs. Designed in a 2U rack form factor, this powerful recording platform is designed and built for video surveillance by the world’s leading video management software manufacturer, Milestone Systems. Since it is designed by video surveillance experts, you get a unit that can handle the wear-and-tear of high performance video recording, and that delivers the highest performance of any NVR in its class.

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced offers:

  • The lowest NVR total cost of ownership
  • The industry’s highest NVR performance
  • Reduced effort and risk associated with scoping and installing a recording platform.



The highest performing NVR in its class

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced is an NVR designed by the video surveillance experts and purpose built for high performance video recording. It offers a guaranteed 600 Mb/s recording rate and includes surveillance-optimized drives that can handle extreme heat fluctuations, equipment vibrations and always-on environments. Milestone’s exclusive designed and built hardware platform:

  • Exclusive System Board based upon Intel’s i7 CPU
  • Raid Controller optimized for streaming applications
  • Western Digital™ Purple Drives optimized for surveillance

The lowest operating cost on the market

The Husky M500 Advanced features an efficient design that results in the lowest power consumption when compared to similar units from other manufacturers. This translates into concrete savings over the installation’s lifetime.


5 Yr Electrical Operating Costs

Full investment protection
and the best price/performance ratio

With the Milestone Husky M500 Advanced, you get a full 3-year warranty, plus three years of Milestone Care Plus coverage. This combination gives you full protection on your hardware and software investment.

You get a 100% trade-in credit when you upgrade to XProtect Corporate. And since the XProtect Corporate software is pre-installed in the unit, you save valuable time and effort when yo

  decide to upgrade and scale your security installation.

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced also offers the lowest price/performance ratio of any NVR in its class.

  • <$17 dollars per NVR / Camera I/O performance
  • <$322 per TB redundant surveillance Storage
  • <$20 per analog device

The low-risk, minimal-effort choice

Rather than spending time testing hardware requirements for your surveillance system, we’ve done the heavy lifting for you, saving you the guesswork of building your own server to work optimally with the video management software.   Deploy faster with pre-installed software

  • Milestone XProtect Advanced VMS software
  • Windows 10 Operating System
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express Edition

From standalone sites to global operations

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced has a simplified design that gives you flexibility. It can function in a number of surveillance scenarios, depending on your organization’s needs. Use it as an all-in-one NVR unit, or as a dedicated management or recording server in a multi-NVR installation.  
  • Single all-in-one NVR installation
  • Multi-NVR installation with central management
  • Recording server in an XProtect Expert / Corporate system
  • Federated or interconnected edge node in a multi-site installation

Software that fits your hardware like a glove

The Milestone Husky M500 Advanced comes pre-installed with both XProtect® Expert and XProtect® Corporate, meaning you can choose the VMS that’s right for your environment. Other NVR vendors go shopping for video management software that’s not fit for their machines, resulting in a less than optimal product for your organization. With the Milestone Husky M500 Advanced, you get a hardware recording platform where the software and hardware are designed to work together to give you a highly efficient recording performance.  
  • Support for up to 512 HD Cameras
  • Supports all usage scenarios supported by the activated VMS
  • Free updates to new software versions ensures you have a recording platform that can do more over time
  • Hot and cold standby failover recording support
