Open platform technology enabled the integration of Nedap access control with the Milestone XProtect VMS
Driven by the market’s requirement for a seamless integration between security systems, Milestone Systems and Nedap are entering a strategic partnership.
By means of this partnership, they commit to a deep integration between the Milestone XProtect VMS and AEOS Access Control from Nedap, as well as a close cooperation in their mutual goal markets.
As demand rises for smarter buildings, facilities and cities with integrated IT-systems for monitoring and controlling, the need for integrations between security systems is also growing. The use of open platform technology has been instrumental in integrating Nedap access control with the Milestone XProtect VMS.
Developing best of video and access control
“This strategic partnership is important not only for us but also for our ever expanding partner community. To us access control integrations are a very important focus area, and we are thrilled to tighten the ties with such an important player in the market.” says Thomas Lausten, Vice President of EMEA at Milestone Systems. “We look forward to expanding the partnership and increasing the benefits for both Milestone and Nedap partners.”
“The best of video management and access control will be combined into a solid, seamlessly integrated security solution,” says Sieger Volkers, Managing Director Security Management at Nedap. “We’re committed to developing a deep integration between our Access Control platform AEOS and XProtect, reducing delivery risks and complexity for our mutual partners.”
The enabling factor behind the easy and flexible integration between AEOS Access Control and Milestone video management software is the extended integration capabilities of Nedap’s AEOS and Milestone Integration Platform Software Development Kit (MIP SDK) 2016. Both XProtect Smart Client and AEOS provide a consolidated interface with functions to effectively monitor access events, manually assist passages and conduct investigations of specific access points or cardholders.
Milestone and Nedap are committed to providing the market with a seamless and deep integration that allows its users to quickly signalise, react and adapt to suspicious situations.
