Milestone open platform allows you to customize your video surveillance system and integrate applications for extra features

Why Open Platform matters

Milestone XProtect® video management software (VMS) is based on a true open platform, which means it has a published application programming interface (API), allowing developers to alter the functionality of XProtect. The Milestone open platform enables you to add custom, best-in-class security solutions to your surveillance, such as access control, cameras and video analytics.

Seamless integration with law enforcement agencies & central monitoring stations

Milestone products provide an open ONVIF video out interface in the form of Milestone Open Network Bridge. This interface enables standardized and secure private-to-public video integration and ensures full video interoperability in multi-vendor installations. Milestone Open Network Bridge supports relevant parts of ONVIF profile G and profile S, providing support for access to live video, recorded video and the ability to remotely control pan-tilt-zoom cameras. This enables law enforcement agencies, central monitoring stations and other organizations to easily integrate video from Milestone Husky NVRs and XProtect VMS products into their central monitoring solutions.
