Lenel Systems International Inc., a provider of enterprise software, integrated systems and access control systems, launched OnGuard® 2012 at ISC West last week. It is the latest release of its security management platform available to Lenel’s value added resellers in the third quarter 2012. Customers can benefit from OnGuard’s stronger integration capability and increased functionality, the company said in a press release. Lenel is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

“In response to customer suggestions, we streamlined the setup process, strengthened our Access and Security Series hardware platforms, and improved the Alarm Monitoring usability interface,” said Brian Tripp, OnGuard product manager at Lenel. “OnGuard 2012 provides an improved user experience for badge upgrades and monitoring client stations, and allows operators to more effectively use their ‘multi-monitor’ workspace.”

Additionally, OnGuard 2012 includes support for Lenel’s Universal IOs on the Security Series Controllers (NGP), enhanced firmware and battery status support for Lenel’s Intelligent Locking System (ILS), and a “time zone override” function on the Access Series Controllers (LNL) that allows security to “Lock Out” certain individuals’ access in response to events.
