6SS’s core business is providing services and integrations exclusively for Milestone and XProtect. They currently have 11 plugins on Marketplace and will soon release another nine. This makes 6SS the partner with the largest number of plugins on Marketplace.

Ideal for monitoring multi-branch sites, the 6SS iMonitor plugin enhances XProtect’s Interconnect feature. It offers fast processing and customizations. This plugin can be installed at headquarters and used to monitor all the interconnected sites. It allows customers to add more features, gain greater flexibility, and generate an unlimited number of reports.
Ideal for multi-site environments and huge deployments, the Federator plugin centralizes all XProtect site operations to help companies save time and deliver improved customer support. It includes configuration and reporting in one centralized interface. Administrators can manage and configure multiple XProtect sites, visualize XProtect with dashboards, and create reports.
The Developer Forum and the documentation offer valuable support, especially with customer use cases. Continuously updated, this free source of knowledge allows 6SS to learn from the experiences, and mistakes, of other Milestone partners.
Video Processing Service (VPS) makes it easy to integrate with Linux-based servers.
Video, audio, and metadata features make it easy to retrieve metadata from specific cameras. For instance, 6SS created an integration for a COVID-19 application that measures temperature. The metadata and video are retrieved from the cameras, and the plugin is configurable and can be viewed inside the Smart Client.
Good experience with Marketplace: It has given 6SS unique opportunities for exposure as well as increased sales. Even without strong marketing efforts, 6SS receives an average of 10 leads per month.
From pricing and product architecture to technicality and business line, 6SS has adopted Milestone’s model in their work. They always adapt processes to align with Milestone’s way of doing things, and this works very well. It creates a way to communicate with customers who are already familiar with Milestone models and can easily adopt the 6SS model.
6SS actively encourages non-technical partners to integrate with Milestone. This helps Milestone sell products, while 6SS also earns revenue through training and professional services. And, there are further opportunities for integration projects, and maintenance and service to ensure the ecosystem is always kept up to date.
