Access control solutions provider Lenel Systems International announced flexible migration programs for users of legacy Casi and Infographics systems to move to Lenel’s OnGuard solution. The existing systems that are part of this program include Picture Perfect, Facility Commander Wnx, Diamond II, Sapphire, Topaz and Summit.

“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,” said Joe Kirmser, Lenel’s president and general manager. “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.”

Alternatively, a cost-effective option to re-flash the firmware to allow existing hardware to talk to OnGuard is also available for PXNplus and ACUXLplus customers. Because both hardware and firmware-based migration options can co-exist, many customers will deploy both. Each option allows customers to continue to use existing cards, readers, door interfaces, wiring infrastructure and supervised F2F protocols.

Lenel recently announced simplification and consolidation of its product portfolio to continue to evolve world-class products via a single, feature-rich, open platform.  This OnGuard platform and redefined focus is already delivering best-in-class innovation, with several successful migrations currently underway and new sites committing daily.
