- Milestone XProtect Corporate VMS
- Compatible with existing analog and new IP cameras from Axis
- Leveraging the high-speed fiber network already in place
- Flexibility to expand the system or change hardware vendors
- No need for re-architecture
Milestone’s intuitive interface was easy to master, even by those new to the video software. And the open platform helped SHU to consolidate input from different systems (fire alarms, emergency assistance systems, intercoms, etc.) into one user-friendly central management platform for its security team.
The system’s integration with a license plate recognition module also automated the entry of vehicles on a service road. This eliminated countless daily interruptions for operators, freeing them to focus on other security tasks.
Further integrations are being explored to streamline more operations. For example, scheduled door locking and building alarm activation - currently a manual task - could be integrated. Overall, the VMS system has greatly increased performance, leading to savings and carbon footprint reductions.
Finally, one of the most notable benefits of the Milestone platform is greater flexibility for future planning. For example, facial recognition and heat mapping analytics for the campuses are being explored, made possible because XProtect has an open design and the global Milestone tech community is large. Countless integrations are available with the Milestone system, and the ability to choose top-of-class offerings from different vendors, which make it possible for the university’s security team to achieve its greatest academic potential.
