Paxton, the UK market leader of electronic IP access control and door entry solutions has announced the integration of its networked access control system, Net2, with Milestone Systems. The integration allows the user to display access control events and monitor video surveillance cameras from the Milestone XProtect® Smart Client.
Paxton has developed a plugin using Milestone’s MIP SDK 2016, that can be added to the Milestone XProtect VMS, linking Paxton Net2 access control information to the Milestone XProtect Smart Client interface.
The integration associates cameras with doors and displays real-time video footage as video events and access alarms occur. The software can be configured so pop up notifications instantly gain the operator’s attention to an event of interest. Doors can be locked or unlocked directly from the XProtect Smart Client interface, where user information and events can be displayed to provide full visibility to the operator on who is accessing areas throughout a site.
Paxton provides industry-leading access control systems which meet the challenges and trends of the security market. With over 30 years’ experience, they offer engineering excellence, creating simple, yet intelligent and innovative products with simplicity designed in, ensuring they are straightforward to install, use and maintain. Net2 is the UK’s most popular access control solution. The security system offers centralised administration and control of sites ranging from one to hundreds of doors, and thousands of users.
Thomas Lausten, Vice President EMEA at Milestone Systems, said: “We are very pleased to strengthen the partnership between Paxton and Milestone. We look forward to working with our common channel partners in all EMEA markets to explore the many benefits this will provide for end-users integrating Milestone VMS and Paxton access control.”
Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: “We are delighted to work again with our long standing partner, Milestone, and believe this feature rich integration provides a solution that meets the needs of many specifications we are seeing in the market. We hope our customers agree, and look forward to receiving feedback.”
The integration between Paxton Net2 with Milestone XProtect VMS using XProtect Access 2016 is a Milestone Certified Solution. This means that the interoperability has been fully tested and documented in four key areas: functionality, usability, performance and partner assessment.
This provides the assurance that the integration will function and perform as a proven, certified solution, which delivers confidence to those specifying, implementing and operating the combined video and access control solution.
