Milestone XProtect Integration

A Software Plugin for Monitoring Alarms and Quick Links for Latronix Switches

Product Details

Software Plugin for Milestone’s XProtect VMS

The MS-PLUGIN-01 is a software plugin for use with Milestone’s XProtect Video Management System (VMS). This plugin provides an integration between Milestone’s XProtect VMS and the Managed Switches with Device Management System (DMS) Software from Lantronix. The software integration is designed to make it simpler for security and network administrators to manage both their video endpoints and the networks in which they are deployed. This solution provides users with deep network visibility, secure remote diagnostics, and rich insights about the connected devices.

The MS-PLUGIN-01 can be installed in two locations. It can be installed on the computer running the Milestone Event Server so that the Event Server can listen for Syslog Events from the Lantronix Switches. It can also be installed on any Smart Client computer running on the same networks as the switches, offering control of certain switch functions via the hot button links.
