Somewhere, the Axis A1001/Entry Manager product development team is crying. :(
Doesn't Milestone have access controll build into it now-a-days ?
Milestone integrates with a company called Imron as well as Isonas currently using A1001 panels. For months Milestone has been directing us towards testing Imron. However, as others have pointed out Isonas recently was added to the list of companies with Milestone integration. I have not tested either at this point.
Isonas is the prime suspect here.

Acre bought Mercury and also bought Vanderbilt Industries and then Siemens Europe...
A better choice would be RS2 or Open Options. S2 already has its own Video Management / DVRs that would not likely be used over the Husky line.
Could we be looking at this from the wrong side. Does Tyco or UTC have the resources to buy Canon?
Sorry for confusion -
There are not many companies with enough cash to buy a $50 Billion company to Brandon's post above, but all of those companies could swallow up Cannon with lots to spare.
I think a more natural purchase with their current cash on hand would be GOPRO to maximize investment and R&D with an "optics/imaging" theme.
If they wanted to continue as a pure 'optics' company who is going into IoT and wearables market full, then partnerhips with optics, eyewear and HD video specialist Luxottica's would give your product instant credibility with a VERY valuable demographic for potencial talent creators/producers.
Their current portfolio and access control neutrality would actually allow for an OEM program for their current Axis Control Hardware to compete directly with what is offered by Mercury.

Isonas would make simple sense, they were Milestone's 'integration of the year' winner.
S2 makes bigger picture sense because of the Enterprise level offering like John states. However since S2 is tied pretty heavily into Exacq...Exaqc... (I can never remember) that would mean Tyco would be the logical choice to buy S2. Maybe Canon will make S2 an offer they can't refuse and deal a blow to Tyco at the same time.
