PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Lenel Systems Int’l announced a program to assist end users with end-of-life Casi Rusco and Infographics legacy access control systems to migrate to its flagship OnGuard solution.
. Existing systems part of the migration program — which is facilitated via firmware and open hardware options — is intended to be used for Picture Perfect, Facility Commander Wnx, Diamond II, Sapphire, Topaz and Summit systems.
“Lenel believes in offering ‘open’ systems to customers through hardware that is also supported by more than 20 access control software companies and through software that integrates with more than 100 third-party partners and more than 200 products,” says Joe Kirmser, president and general manager, Lenel Systems. “We’re excited to bring these benefits to Casi and Infographics customers through a hardware replacement option that can, in many cases, be deployed without using a screwdriver.”
For PXNplus and ACUXLplus customers, Lenel will provide the option to re-flash the firmware to allow existing hardware to talk to the OnGuard platform. Because both hardware and firmware-based migration options can co-exist, many customers will deploy both, according to the company. Each option allows customers to continue to use existing cards, readers, door interfaces, wiring infrastructure and supervised F2F protocols.
