Open Options Partners With Schindler to Grow Elevator Integration Portfolio
The partnership will result in benefits including a single interface for access and elevator events, increased facility security and efficiency, and more.
ADDISON, Texas — Open Options, a leading provider of access control solutions, recently completed a technology partnership with Schindler, a global leader in elevators, escalators and moving walkways.
The partnership will allow users another option with their access and elevator control solutions, according to an announcement.
New with Open Option’s DNA Fusion version 126.96.36.199, the Schindler third-party database interface gives users the ability to manage their elevator dispatch control through the user-friendly DNA Fusion platform, the announcement states.
All access information is set up within the Schindler Port Technology system, and DNA Fusion allows the operator to set up special access levels that reference those Port Technology profiles. This allows cardholder, credential, and access information to be transferred in real-time to the Schindler Port Technology system.
Said to be ideal for multi-elevator installations, the solution groups passengers with similar destinations into the same elevators. This ultimately reduces wait and travel times when compared to a traditional approach, where all passengers enter the same lift and then request their destination.
Additional benefits include a single interface for access and elevator events, increased facility security and efficiency, cost savings, among other advantages.
“We’re excited to offer a joint solution between our DNA Fusion access control software and multiple elevator management platforms, including our most recent integration with Schindler,” says Brent Doherty, Open Options’ vice president of marketing & communications.
Doherty continues, “Open Options is dedicated to providing open platform solutions, which is why we continually work with leading security providers and technologies to develop integrations that provide end users best-of-breed solutions to complement their access control system.”
The company also has technology partnerships with other leading elevator manufacturers thyssenkrupp, KONE and Otis.
