Access control is a crucial part of your larger surveillance system, acting as the bouncer who stands at the different points of entry into your business. When an unknown or unauthorized person approaches, access control asks, “Do I know you?”
Access Control is the security infrastructure that limits who or what can access specific physical locations like your office, buildings, or even home. It’s the boundary that automatically authorizes specific users based on whether they meet a predetermined set of credentials and authentication criteria.
Access control configurations act as the metaphorical trolls underneath your security bridge, only granting access to only those who meet your criteria.
Adding in access control to your video surveillance system is a crucial step to protect your most valuable assets: your employees, your property, confidential information but also extends to operations ie. booking meeting rooms! Access control is also a key component in several regulations and standards including PCI and compliance with state cannabis regulations.
Like a key in a lock, access control systems fit perfectly into your Milestone VMS. With XProtect Access, you can manage your video cameras and access control navigation from a central interface.
This seamless pairing gives you the liberty to make more informed security decisions, work more efficiently, and save time (trust us, we know how precious it is).
Make sure your door is always open to the right people, and only the right people by integrating the 2N® Access Commander Plugin to XProtect Access.
The 2N Access Commander Plugin is the perfect option if you want to manage video and access monitoring and control, all from a single interface.
XProtect is in charge of the surveillance for your company, but without integrating video and access control functionality together, you’re limiting your potential for maximum situational awareness and quicker response times in crises. The plugin integrates seamlessly with XProtect Access within your Milestone VMS system so you can view access events and cardholder information, trigger door locks, and monitor alarms directly in XProtect®.
What’s more, compatibility between 2N Access Commander and XProtect Access ensures all logs of cardholder information, authorizing credentials, license plates, and more are sent directly to your XProtect operator in a streamlined, single-platform format.
