Fulfilling Customers’ Needs – Today and Tomorrow

When choosing video management software (VMS), the best return on investment comes from an open platform. Why?

Such solutions not only allow integrations to access control security systems and analytics like people counting and loitering detection, but also provide beneficial interoperability to point-of-sales systems, analytics that measure vehicle or foot traffic in retail stores, tracking RFID tags in a warehouse, etc. With the SDK integration tools from a true open platform VMS, the possibilities are endless. 

Freedom comes from the option to innovate

It’s all about the power of choice. The more choices you have, the better your installation can be right now – and in the future, too.

For example, the services provided by today’s smartphones are far different from those of just 15 years ago. Today’s mobile phones provide texting, cameras, video recording and viewing, internet communications, games and more. Just as with the mobile phone, we are seeing the security industry take existing surveillance technology and innovate solutions that extend beyond just security.

Look for a provider with an open business framework that allows customers to choose from best-in-class technologies and make them interoperable to address your goals in a flexible and scalable manner, instead of being limited by what one vendor alone can deliver. Installing an open platform solution today ensures your readiness to adopt the innovations of tomorrow.

As an established global leader in the surveillance industry, Milestone Systems supports almost 5,000 models of security cameras and encoders from over 150 manufacturers. The XProtect platform already has around 200 third-party applications developed by Milestone Solution Partners that add new functionality to the core VMS functionality. Milestone’s open Application Program Interfaces (APIs) and structured partner programs are what enables the value-adding integrations with technologies such as access control, video analytics, IP intercoms, GIS, GPS, laser scanners, RFID, Point-of-Sale, biometrics, PSIM and so much more.
