Paxton access control pairs with Milestone VMS
Paxton networked access control system, Net2, now integrates with Milestone Systems. The integration allows the user to display access control events and monitor video surveillance cameras from the Milestone XProtect Smart Client.
Paxton has developed a plugin using Milestone’s MIP SDK 2016, that can be added to the Milestone XProtect (VMS) linking Paxton Net2 access control information to the Milestone XProtect Smart Client interface.
The integration associates cameras with doors and displays real-time video footage as video events and access alarms occur. The software can be configured so pop up notifications instantly gain the operator’s attention to an event of interest. Doors can be locked or unlocked directly from the XProtect Smart Client interface, where user information and events can be displayed to provide full visibility to the operator on who is accessing areas throughout a site.
Chris Wilson, Paxton’s product manager, said: “Integrating with the XProtect Access 2016 plug-in will bring even more simplicity and convenience to our dealers and customers. With the robust platforms offered by both companies, dealers and end users alike can rest assured they have selected a great solution for their physical security needs.”
Net2 is Paxton’s popular access control solution, which offers centralized administration and control of sites ranging from one to hundreds of doors, and thousands of users.
Reinier Tuinzing, strategic alliances manager, Americas, at Milestone Systems, said: “We are very pleased to strengthen the long-term partnership between Paxton and Milestone. As mutual proponents of open platform software, this latest integration offers our customers the choice to operate their access control from the XProtect video client.”
The integration between Paxton Net2 and Milestone XProtect VMS using XProtect Access 2016 is a Milestone Certified Solution.
