What if I already have a VMS?

If you just need base-level surveillance, a VMS might do the job for you. However, if you are looking to be proactively alerted for safety incidents, are tired of not solving incidents quick enough, don’t want to tediously search through a timeline anymore, aren’t currently using all of the data from your camera streams to save on costs and make more calculated decisions, and don’t want to handle a ton of 3rd party integrations to get things working with your cameras - then MIDL is for you.

Long story short, your VMS is only providing you surveillance and possibly base-level detections/analytics such as color or vehicles. MIDL is able to take a much deeper dive into what is being seen by your cameras, taking this data and enabling you to set very specific alerts to take a proactive approach to security (not just motion alerts like your VMS might provide). MIDL also significantly eliminates the time you need to spend searching through a timeline by allowing you to instantly surface incidents from your buried footage. Aside from the safety-centric features, MIDL delivers you analytics on the objects and activity at your property, so you can identify the root cause of issues and make financially sound decisions that won’t land you in the hot seat.

A large difference between MIDL and a VMS is that we do not rely on integrations to provide functionality. While a main feature of MIDL is to integrate with other devices across your property to share the data being seen by your cameras, we do not rely on outside integrations for our operations. All of our features, analytics, detections, and our interface are included natively in the MIDL platform.
