LenelS2 Rolls Out Version 7.6 of OnGuard Security Management System

OnGuard 7.6 features new options that enhance video viewing and simplify navigation, cybersecurity improvements and many other enhancements.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — LenelS2, a provider of advanced security systems, introduces OnGuard version 7.6, its latest enterprise security management system that offers feature and operability enhancements to its access control platform, while also extending its Cloud compatibility, integration capabilities and convenience.

LenelS2 is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

“With the technology enhancements in OnGuard 7.6, our valued-added resellers and growing customer base will be able to leverage operability improvements as well as enhanced cybersecurity, Cloud and mobile features to experience a more scalable, accessible and Cloud-compatible enterprise security platform,” says Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2. “OnGuard 7.6 demonstrates our ongoing investment in the platform while continuing our progress in browser-based application usability.”

OnGuard 7.6 browser-based client applications enable system administrators to more easily deploy and operate the system, according to the company.

End user customers who monitor alarms, manage visitors and approve access requests will experience mobile browser-based clients as part of the standard installation process. In addition, an enhanced setting in OnGuard Surveillance and OnGuard Monitor browser clients enables role-based restrictions.

An operator is able to view recorded video beyond a specified timeframe to manage privacy or safety concerns. LenelS2 says both clients feature new options that enhance video viewing and simplify navigation.

Cybersecurity and compliance enhancements include use of the TLS 1.2 protocol to encrypt OnGuard 7.6 communications, including email and browser client use; elimination of default passwords for compliance; as well as an updated OnGuard Hardening Guide.

OnGuard 7.6 also includes a dynamic new reader/alarm panel interface, the LNL-1324e. This I/O module, with AES 256 encryption, enables doors to be connected to an OnGuard platform using either structured cabling or via the onboard Ethernet for easier installation.

Additional OnGuard 7.6 enhancements include:

  • OnGuard Visitor Management support of PDF417 barcode technology, providing greater scalability and reliability.
  • Expanded Cloud compatibility that leverages Amazon Web Services virtual machine images or Amazon Machine Images.
  • A new BlueDiamond Active Credentials option that enables administrators to see the quantity of currently active mobile credentials to better plan their purchasing decisions.
  • Updated integration with Bosch and Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) intrusion panels and improved integrations with Otis Elevator CompassPlus controllers.
