Milestone XProtect

Extend Venue Security with Integrated VMS Technologies

Evolv Express Milestone VMS
(Video Management System) Integration

Milestone XProtect

With Evolv Express integration to Milestone XProtect, an open-source VMS (Video Management System) platform, potential weapons threats identified by the Express system and verified by security teams are instantly communicated to the SOC (Security Operations Center) via the Milestone screens. 


Connected Security Technologies Reduce Venue Risks
With so many new security technologies coming to market, introducing a new approach to weapons detection should help unify—not further fragment—a venue’s security ecosystem. Extending communications from the vital venue entrances to the extended security team, no matter where they are located, is key to shortening response time and improving overall situational awareness. And providing visibility into what weapons are being detected, where, and when should help to accelerate response time, not unduly burden IT staff, or introduce new risks.

Leverage the Power to See Weapons Threats at Every Venue Entrance
With Evolv Express integrations to Milestone XProtect, an open-source VMS (Video Management System) platform, potential weapons threats identified by the Express system and verified by security teams are instantly communicated to the SOC (Security Operations Center) or anywhere else the software is used via the Milestone XProtect Smart Client screens.

With these integrations, teams with access to the Milestone VMS can quickly and easily see:

  • The type of threat item verified by Evolv Express operators.
  • Time, date, and location of threats.
  • Alert images of the specific individual identified with the verified threat and where on their person it was located.
  • Any request for backup or assistance made by the operators.
  • Video stream from any venue camera or from the Express surveillance camera that has been associated to Express alert events in Milestone.
  • A complete history of threat alerts and request assistance notifications.

Integrations are prebuilt and easy to configure in the MyEvolv portal by administrators with access permissions to both systems.

Extend the Potential of Milestone VMS to Your Venue’s Threshold
Store Evolv Express alerts and Request Assistance notifications in context with other Milestone data captured across the venue, enabling post-event forensics. Upon receipt of a verified weapons alert at an Evolv Express system, the system logic and workflow capabilities built into the Milestone VMS system can orchestrate different responses based on venue protocols and situation severity.

With the VMS Integration

  • The front and rear surveillance cameras on Evolv Express add new sources for Milestone video feeds, capturing eye-level streams of visitors as they enter and pass through each system.
  • Associate alert image captures from Express with video feed from any camera connected to the Milestone VMS and “play back” alert image data and associated video streams for a view of the alert in-context.
  • Add captured images to a gallery to prevent subjects from entering the venue again.
  • Leverage video analytics and mapping packages that integrate with Milestone VMS, extending the power of capturing threat information data at the venue’s threshold.
  • Configure the rules engine in Milestone to orchestrate signal chain notifications and workflows, including existing Milestone integrations to access control points or mass notification systems, in response to the verified weapons threat or specific Express system guard resource Request Assistance (e.g., in case of gun, lock a door or turnstile/dispatch a resource, etc.)
  • Alert image and contextual metadata can be bookmarked and used by security leads to search and support post-event forensics.


When an operator at the Evolv Express system tags a threat item on the tablet, the threat localization image, and alert metadata (time, location, and threat type) are sent to Milestone. Requests for assistance made from the tablet are also displayed in the Milestone user experience, and they may be communicated with or without an accompanying verified alert.

Alarm Manager

The Alarm Manager in Milestone used for forensic analysis and historical investigations can include EEvolv Express alerts, including verified threats accompanied by the threat localization image communicated by Evolv Express and the metadata sent by Express to the system. Video from before and after the alert is also displayed when an accompanying camera has been selected upon setup.
