LenelS2 Releases OnGuard Security Management System Version 8.0
The latest release of OnGuard enhances situational awareness, unifies security views and provides visualization for data-based insights.
PITTSFORD, N.Y — LenelS2 announces the release of the OnGuard security management system version 8.0.
The company says the solution empowers security teams with enhanced situational awareness through unified views of the security environment, as well as powerful visualization for data-based insights.
Version 8.0 provides major updates including integration with the Magic Monitor unified client, rich interactive maps, a new modern reporting engine, cybersecurity enhancements and more.
The OnGuard security management system is a solution in Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program, and provides features like occupancy management, enhanced access control and proactive screening solutions to better protect people and assets, and optimize building health and efficiency.
“OnGuard version 8.0 provides end users with the tools they need to be in complete control of their security environment and transform security data into actionable insights,” says Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2. “As the world returns to the workplace, the breadth of new features, updates and enhancements in OnGuard version 8.0 make it an ideal solution for today’s unique security challenges.”
The OnGuard 8.0 system enhances security and situational awareness through integration with the Magic Monitor client, a Windows and MacOS client, which provides a unified view of access control, video surveillance feeds and web content in a single display.
Users can view OnGuard system alarms and credentials, as well as live or recorded video from the LenelS2 network video recorder (LenelS2 NVR) platform, or third-party video management systems, including the Milestone XProtect system. The Magic Monitor unified client supports a single display, a command center workstation or expansive video walls.
The new interactive OnGuard Maps feature offers browser-based visualization of facility layouts and provides dynamic system feedback. With OnGuard version 8.0, the Maps feature is included within the OnGuard Monitor client and is accessible from any computer, tablet or smartphone.
The OnGuard 8.0 system also includes new usability enhancements, integrations and cybersecurity upgrades that are said to improve safety and convenience. Usability enhancements include language options in OnGuard Visitor Self Service mobile app version 1.5, and a richer video viewing experience across OnGuard web clients, according to the company.
The improved video experience includes new audio, digital zoom, snapshot capture and Milestone XProtect video support in OnGuard Monitor and Surveillance web clients.
To enhance security in the K-12 education segment, integration with the Allegion Von Duprin remote undogging/memote monitoring (RU/RM) solution enables an electronic override of mechanical undogging for facility emergency lockdown and remote door status monitoring.
‘Secure by Default’ settings, coupled with license administration security improvements, enhance cybersecurity across the OnGuard system, according to the company.
