Integrated Systems

Milestone plugin

The manufacturer Vanderbilt has released a Milestone plugin for its SPC Intrusion system. SPC offers intrusion detection using cloud services, end-user apps, and a dedicated software suite.

The plugin allows users to trigger off events and control SPC systems from within the Milestone Systems video management software. When installed, the plugin allows for a 30-day trial for up to two panels and will allow the display of areas, zones, doors and outputs from the Milestone Map interface.

The plugin uses FlexC to communicate with the panel and when a license is purchased from Vanderbilt it will support up to 20 SPC systems. The license also provides customers with one year support and availability to updates. The plugin is compatible with SPC 3.6.6, 3.7.1 and SPC 3.8.

The plugin can provide the developers say a bi-directional communication strategy with surveillance. In line with the mantra of customer first, the SPC Milestone plugin features options such as filters for event transmissions, remote interaction based on customizable command profile, while ATS/ATP logs offer transparent transmission.

The access to any potential alarm helps save time for those involved in maintaining the system. For example, through the plugin, when an alarm is generated the icon on your monitoring screen will go red, cameras can be triggered, and the Milestone client can display the relevant information. By right-clicking the icon, you can check the status of the alarm and a further right-click action will restore the alarm and switch the icon back to green.

The integration means that when the system is configured the data is automatically imported into Milestone where names of areas, zones and doors appear allowing for configuration.

John O’Donnell, Product Manager at Vanderbilt Industries says: “At Vanderbilt, we are proud to be a platform that supports an integrated environment and we aim to deliver a solution that will provide Milestone and Vanderbilt`s mutual customers with the tools they need to deliver the best solutions for their customers.”
