I'd like to know what the IPVM community feels is the better solution (Scaling for small sites as well as large enterprise level sites) between using Milestone Corporate VMS and one of their third party access control options and Genetec with their Unified platform. The thought is to use a common solution over an enterprise, with installations ranging in size from sales offices with four card readers and 6-8 cameras to large corporate sites with many hundreds of IP cameras and card readers.
I'd like to know pros and cons of the two offerings.
Things we are considering include pricing per door/camera, quality and ease of integration, enterprise maintenance features for both the VMS and access control sides, ease of use for the operators, ease of administration, robust architecture with failover capabilities, etc. etc.
I look forward to hearing the communities thoughts on this.
