Milestone Systems Introduces Push-To-Talk In The Mobile Client
Milestone Systems introduces two-way audio in the Mobile Client, enabling the users to speak to people
on camera, directly from their mobile devices.
Copenhagen - January 21, 2019. The first XProtect release of 2019 extends the usability of the Smart Client and takes it outside the control room with support for both one and two-way audio in the Mobile Client. This is beneficial for on-the-go security personnel, whose tasks require them sometimes to be away from the Smart Client. One-way audio allows users to listen to audio captured by the microphone connected to the camera directly from their mobile phones using the Milestone Mobile application. Users can also increase their situational awareness when a video is not available, like in extreme darkness or when an incident happens outside of the camera’s viewing range.
Two-way audio takes the audio capability a step further with Push-to-Talk (PTT), a feature that allows users to speak through the camera-connected speaker directly from their mobile phones. This enables security personnel to use their VMS systems preventatively for things like access control, crowd warnings, and intruder alerts – all available on mobile - without having to be physically present in the control room or on premise.
Good VMS helps you react quickly to incidents. Great VMS helps you prevent incidents before they even happen. Here are a few examples of how listening to audio and using Push-To-Talk directly from your phone can help you stay on top of things, even when you are on the go.
Deter unwanted intruders
Witness suspicious activity while on patrol? Speak through the speakers connected to the cameras and deter unwanted visitors, directly from your phone.
Warn and direct crowds
Detect an obstacle on premise? Warn crowds and direct them to a safe place before an incident occurs.
Be in two places at once
Watch video and listen to audio from one area while patrolling another.
Solve issues faster
Need help taking care of an issue? Announce your need for assistance through the speakers connected to the cameras and ask for backup directly from your phone.
Coordinate responses with ease
Communication is the key to a successful operation. Communicate with other security personnel in real time via the camera speakers and maximize your operational efficiency.
