Milestone XProtect® video management software (VMS) is based on a true open platform. This means that a published application programming interface (API) allows developers to alter the functionality of XProtect, enabling the addition of custom, best-in-class functions to security and business systems. There is no limit to what can be created: video analytics, access control, training, customer service and delivery logistics are but a few of the solutions that can be seamlessly integrated and managed through our VMS interface. All in the name of greater efficiency, improved functionality and business growth.

So how does it work?

The short answer is the MIP SDK: The Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit. This comprehensive tool makes it easy to create and manage applications for Milestone VMS.

The easy-to-use development toolkit contains application and code samples, proven Milestone library and code components and Microsoft® Visual Studio project templates to help create new integrations. Our developer support includes comprehensive developer tools, training and dedicated support that ensures you have the help you need to get your integration to the market quickly.
