Castel Xellip 2 integration with Milestone VMS gives users seamless control

Latest News Thu, May 9, 2019 11:22 AM

Castel’s open protocol Xellip2 IP intercom has been integrated with Milestone’s Xprotect video management system (VMS) to offer seamless interoperability between systems.

The ONVIF-compatible Xellip2 features a 1200 x 800 wide-angle HD camera. Sporting a sleek, contemporary design with backlit and flushed nameplates, the Xellip2 has two output relays and two inputs for third-party integration. It also features two Ethernet ports (1x PoE, plus an additional one for serial/bus architecture type and loopback).

Other highlights include echo and noise cancellation, a built-in induction loop for compliance with disability discrimination legislation, audio feedback and call status LEDs, power backup, built-in web browser and the ability to record audio and video.

The integration enables all the components of the intercom system – camera, microphone, speaker and button – to be monitored and controlled from the Xprotect interface.

The VMS enables users to:

  • record video via the event button or via motion detection
  • record audio
  • trigger actions via the rule engine, such as the display on a matrix or on Xprotect’s dynamic image wall
  • send pre-recorded messages to the intercom’s speaker
  • reassign an alarm, and
  • display a flashing icon in the case of detection.

“Interoperability between Castel's intercom systems and video management systems is now a key demand from our markets, and developments in the latest Xellip2 intercom range offer the perfect answer to this challenge,” said Atmane Bensghir, Business Development Manager at Castel. “This integration with Milestone’s VMS puts users in control, enabling them to manage their video entry and security systems using a single interface.”

The easy integration of the Xellip 2, combined with the XProtect access module, enriches the Milestone Smartclient with an integrated intercom client. This module allows the display of a pop-up alert to pinpoint a call made from an intercom.

Milestone Access pop-up notification enables video monitoring at the relevant intercom and two-way audio communication with the intercom directly from the Milestone Smartclient, as well as the opening of a door and association of intercom information with access control data.
