XProtect® Plug-ins

Connect joysticks

Ready-to-use XProtect Plug-ins integrate input units into Milestone software for added functionality.

Input Unit Plug-ins are developed by Milestone to add additional capabilities to Milestone video management software (VMS). For specific product version support, please read each plug-in description.

XProtect Input Unit Plug-ins

XProtect Input Unit Plug-ins integrate a range of input units, such as keypads, jog dials and joysticks, which are used as a single point of operation for XProtect® Smart Client. XProtect Input Unit Plug-ins are ready to use because they have a default configuration when installed. However, the functionality is flexible and can be reconfigured to perform a wide range of actions such as switching views, performing pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) operations, navigating in playback timelines and triggering outputs.

XProtect Input Unit Plug-in settings are stored within XProtect Smart Client configuration. The plug-in supports both global configuration as well as individual user configuration so you can customize the plug-in functionality for different users.

XProtect Input Unit Plug-ins are compatible with XProtect Smart Client 6 and higher.

Plug-ins are currently available for the following input units:

AXIS T8310 Video Surveillance Control Board*
BOSCH IntuiKey Series keyboards
Panasonic System Controller WV-CU950
Pelco KBD300A Keyboard

*The AXIS T8310 Video Surveillance Control Board consists of three units – AXIS T8311 Video Surveillance Joystick, AXIS T8312 Video Surveillance Keypad and AXIS Video Surveillance T8313 Jog Dial. The AXIS Video Surveillance T8311 Joystick is configured and controlled via Microsoft® Windows.
