Made in collaboration with Paxton Access, the Paxton Net2 Integration for XProtect Access allows you to connect and manage your Paxton solution within Milestone XProtect Access. This allows you to streamline your video management system, security processes and management of users and visitors. By linking Paxton Net2 events to your Milestone system you unleash the power of access data for your Video Management System. Now you can save time investigating incidents, no longer will you have to work with two separate systems.

XProtect Access allows you to connect your access control system directly to Milestone's XProtect VMS. It is designed to fit perfectly with any XProtect product. No matter your installation size, with XProtect access you can control your video cameras and access your control system from a central interface. Trigger Milestone rules with Paxton events to allow a proactive response to alerts.

The Plugin to XProtect Access allows:

  • Cameras can be associated with doors as they are viewed in the Smart Client - both live and playback.
  • Access Monitor in the Smart Client will show cardholder details in real-time as door events are triggered.
  • Pop-up feature enabled in the Smart Client so that users are notified of access requests.
  • Interactive icons on the Milestone Map - Open, hold-open, close doors and acknowledge alarms.
  • Acknowledge alarms from Milestone and clear in both systems.
  • Search for events/doors and Cardholders in Access Control Tab.
