Milestone XProtect Access Control Module 2014 integrates access control and video surveillance into a single security solution.

At the company’s ASIS 2014 booth it was business as usual as staffers touted the company’s latest product releases. Included, the XProtect Access Control Module 2014. The module allows for easy integration of third-party access control systems with Milestone video surveillance solutions, according to the company. As well, it offers a new and more efficient way to operate access control and video surveillance systems through a unified interface, XProtect Smart Client

The module eliminates the need for users to work with multiple independent systems by providing the primary and most commonly used access control functions as an integral part of XProtect Smart Client. As well, the client provides a consolidated interface for operating integrated access control systems with functions to effectively monitor access events, manually assist passages and conduct investigations of specific access points or cardholders, according to the company.

The extended integration capabilities in the Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit (MIP SDK) 2014 enable the streamlined integration between third-party access control systems and Milestone video management solutions, says Christian Bohn, Milestone’s vice president of corporate marketing and alliances.
