Security manufacturer ICT has updated the Milestone XProtect VMS integration of its Protege GX access, alarm and automation solution.

Protege GX has long worked with the Milestone Video Management System, and ICT says the team has updated this integration to include Milestone XProtect version 2020 R3.

Milestone XProtect is one of the most widely used VMS providers in the world. They design, develop, and produce world-leading IP-based video management solutions for organizations of all shapes and sizes.

Key benefits of this XProtect/Protege integration include the ability to:

* View live video footage from programmed cameras
* View historic and archived video footage
* Embed cameras into a status page
* Link a camera to a door, input, output, or area
* View live or archived video footage directly from an event associated with a camera
* Automatically launch a camera view window when specific types of events occur
* Send PTZ preset commands to the VMS in response to a Protege GX event filter.
