Milestone App - PSIM Lite (Alesys)

By: Brian Karas, Published on Feb 09, 2017

Milestone has many features in their VMS, but it is not a PSIM.

Italian PSIM developer Alesys thinks sensor integrations and alarm management can be improved with a PSIM-lite extension to Milestone XProtect. They are going up against 4 other contestants in the Milestone developer contest, including Parking Spotter, which we recently covered.

The owner of Alesys, Alessandro Ferrari [link no longer available], provided an overview of his company's MIPS entry, and why he feels it fills a niche that Milestone does not currently address. Inside, we examine features, pricing and competitive comparison to existing PSIMs and Genetec.
