Even more integration for Paxton Net2…

Our partners Paxton, the UK’s 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’ newest video management software (VMS).

This latest integration allows the user to display access control events and monitor video surveillance cameras from the Milestone XProtect Smart Client, a fantastically advanced and versatile piece of software.

The latest move from powerful Paxton

Always at the forefront of security advances, Paxton’s latest move does not disappoint. The team 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 two platforms work together so that certain cameras are associated with specific doors. They will display real-time footage as video events occur, ideal for when access alarms are triggered. The software can easily be configured so that pop-up notifications will instantly gain the operator’s attention to an event of interest.

Door locking directly through XProtect

Furthermore, doors can now 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. This visibility will show exactly who is accessing areas throughout a site at any one time.

Milestone Systems was founded in 1998 and is a global industry leader in open platform IP video management software. Its technology is easy to manage, reliable and provides flexible choices in network hardware and integrations with other systems.

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.”
A Milestone-certified security solution

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. You can find full certification information on the Paxton website.
