Milestone unveils access control integration with Genea

August 29, 2023

Milestone Systems has announced an integration between Genea’s cloud-based access control with two of its solutions.

Genea has successfully integrated Milestone XProtect video management and Milestone Kite cloud native video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) with its cloud-based access control to provide users with a centralised security solution in a single pane of glass.

The companies say that with these integrations, IT and security personnel can easily connect and view their facility’s surveillance video alongside the corresponding access event, such as a door held open or door forced open.

By integrating Genea access control with video management systems (VMS) like Milestone XProtect and with VSaaS like Milestone Kite, users can quickly and efficiently respond to unauthorised access attempts and other emergency situations.

According to the companies, the Genea bi-directional integration with Milestone XProtect offers functionalities such as automated responses to alarms and remote door operations, including lock, unlock and quick grant access can be performed from the Milestone Smart Client to Genea hardware.

The integration also pulls lists of active users from Genea into the Milestone application, facilitating efficient user profile management.

“We are thrilled to have these integrations with Milestone,” said Mike Maxsenti, General Manager of Access Control at Genea.

“We firmly believe that cloud-based integrations like this will help our current and future customers not only improve their security but give them the flexibility and scalability they need over the long run.”
