Lenel is making available LifeSafety Power’s ProWire Unified Power Systems for Lenel OnGuard-connected devices. ProWire is an innovative, next-generation access system that integrates power and panels and is pre-wired for system power, lock power and communication to eliminate hours of installation labor, the company described. Available with capabilities for Lenel OnGuard power monitoring, ProWire’s real-time data monitors the performance of network-connected power, ensuring optimal system operation and up time. Lenel is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

Developed and manufactured by LifeSafety Power,the ProWire solution for OnGuard offers intelligent and networked functionality that yields a snapshot of the current status of power across the facility. It provides data that shows exactly how access control and other systems are performing, allowing organizations to take proactive measures before potential critical system failures occur. ProWire is also available in a pre-wired, non-managed power solution to meet every reseller specification.

“With access control serving as the hub for many disparate security systems, it’s become critical to have easily accessible, real-time data available about device performance,” said Jeff Stanek, general manager, Lenel, North America. “There’s never a good time for a security device to fail and with LifeSafety Power’s ProWire solution, end users can count on getting the information they need to create better efficiencies and greater system uptime. ProWire can also be used for managed services like remote monitoring and maintenance — to reset devices, automatically test batteries, actively monitor actual system stand-by time remaining and other capabilities.”

Larry Ye, president and CEO, LifeSafety Power, said with the many demands being placed on the OnGuard platform, power systems need to provide the latest proactive analytics to increase system integrity. “ProWire, when combined with intelligent managed power options, lets end users gain visibility into system health and viability,” Ye said. “As a networked solution, ProWire allows data to be monitored locally or globally at a single user interface to optimize performance and increase operational efficiencies for the end-user customer.”
