The State University of New York at Buffalo has expanded its campus-wide security monitoring by utilizing an scaleable open platform IP video management software system from Milestone XProtect.
“The scalable technology has continued to meet growing needs for the different departments for more than 10 years.
“IP network cameras were first installed in 2004 at SUNY Buffalo. Today, Milestone XProtect Corporate VMS connects nearly 800 devices across the UB campus, and the system continues to expand. The surveillance hardware is a best-in-class mix of various static and pan/tilt/zoom network cameras from Axis Communications.”
“The university has also deployed Blue Light emergency phones around campus which are integrated with Milestone’s open platform architecture. When someone picks up a Blue Light phone to make a call, that data goes through the Milestone software rules engine which is set up to move the nearest Axis PTZ camera to view the phone station, provide real-time situational awareness and record the video. As a call comes into police dispatch, Milestone “pops in” the image of the phone location to a large monitor where the operator has instant awareness of the location.”
