Isonas access control integrates with Milestone XProtect
This is an add-on capability with Milestone XProtect video management software (VMS) that provides central, local and remote management of video and access control.
Isonas, a manufacturer of pure IP access control systems, will also be participating in the Milestone Integration Platform Symposium (MIPS) 2016 event in Arizona on February 22-25.
Uniting access control and video for monitoring access events and controlling access points creates advantages for customers, says Isonas. The integration creates more efficient work processes, as operators can manage video and access control from a unified interface. With the addition of the deep links functionality in the Milestone XProtect 2016 platform, customers have a direct link from XProtect to the Isonas EasyWeb 2015 web based platform, which creates an even more efficient workflow by allowing customers to move from one application to the other with ease.
According to Isonas, in 2015, more than 50 per cent of the video surveillance cameras in the North American market were IP cameras. Now that there is an installed base of IP architecture, users expect their access control to do things like their cameras; operate at the edge and eliminate the need for separate power drops, the company says.
“Our customers can get real-time video verification of Isonas access control events viewed from the access control tab in the easy-to-use XProtect Smart Client interface. Operators can process the video for fast export with thumbnail searching in the Sequence Explorer, facility maps, bookmarking, storyboarding and Evidence Lock, among other great Milestone VMS functions,” says Reinier Tuinzing, Strategic Alliances Manager at Milestone Systems.
