Milestone XProtect Access 2016 Release - New Features, Major Price Drop

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 15, 2015

With continued video surveillance price pressure, access is getting more attention, as shown in 2016 Top Security Expansion Targets and argued in our Smart Integrators Should Lead With Access Control note.

Milestone has released a new version of access control support, called 'XProtect Access 2016', adding several key improvements and a price drop.

For the 2016 release, we examine what improvements have been made and how they impact Milestone's competitive positioning.

Milestone Access not integrated with leading access platforms such as Lenel, SoftwareHouse, or AMAG that have developed or deepened integration with competing VMS platforms.

That's a switch from the camera side where they would invariably start with the most popular implementations first and work their way down.

Do you think it's Milestone dragging their feet or Lenel/SH/AMAG closing the door on them, possibly because of some agreement with Milestone's competitors?

I know very little about milestone so this might be a ridiculous question.

Could you use a Husky NVR for say 16 cameras and run say 4 access licenses off that NVR? I would assume so, as the door controllers can't require that much bandwidth or processing power for a small system.

Milestone responded: "Yes, XProtect Access works with Husky M30 and higher. (i.e. not supported on the M10)"

So the smallest Husky box isn't an option, but the mid & largest box can use the Access module. (For those not familiar, see: Milestone Launches Professional NVRs (Husky))

I standardized on Milestone Corporate a few years ago to replace DVR systems located throughout my company. I'm now looking to standardize on a new access control system to replace the individual systems at these sites. .

I'm disappointed that Milestone Access is dependent on an external access control system to function. I'm assuming it adds unwanted complexity to the entire system.

Does anyone have experience with Milestone Access in a multisite environment?
