It means our customers have greater freedom and flexibility in their security and site management system selection. “Achieving Lenel OnGuard system certification for version 7.1 and 7.2 reflects this commitment, is great for Synergy 3 users, and has cemented a business relationship we hope to nurture through our membership in Lenel’s OpenAccess Alliance Program.” Open architecture platform Synergy 3 is an enterprise class, flexible, open architecture platform that enables alarms and events, security and process control sub-systems, video, and data to be monitored, managed, and recorded from a single unified interface. Through Lenel’s OnGuard access control system, Synergy 3 users are able to view current hardware status, open doors, set reader modes, control access alarms, activate/deactivate pulse outputs, and detect risk indicators such as forced or held doors, tampering and equipment failures. Designed with ease of use, Synergy 3 supports open standards-based products such as ONVIF, PSIA, OPC, MODBUS and Lenel OnGuard, along with a wide range of proprietary interfaces to the world’s leading security vendors.
