Lenel Reinvents the OnGuard? Experience with Latest Release of Security Management Platform

PITTSFORD, N.Y., Jan. 5, 2017 – Lenel, a leading provider in advanced security systems, introduces the OnGuard 7.3 security management platform. This latest release of the proven OnGuard system is web- and mobile-ready, adding performance, convenience and operational efficiency. Lenel is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

The OnGuard 7.3 platform delivers on convenience with support for the new Lenel BlueDiamond™ mobile ecosystem, which allows smart devices to be used as secure credentials. This provides a secure way to eliminate the cost and security concerns with plastic badges. To offer added choice, multi-technology readers with a Bluetooth® low energy module and a secure Cloud server are also supported, as are third-party mobile credentials.

“New enhancements like additional web-based apps and native support for mobile credential issuance make this Lenel’s most flexible and integrated solution to date,” says Ross McKay, director product management, Lenel.

The new OnGuard credentials module, a web-based cardholder, credential and access rights management application, offers enhanced efficiency by allowing users to access the OnGuard security management system without the need for client software installation or upgrades.

This latest release also supports the new Lenel console, a web-based application that ties core, web-based and third-party components of the system into one unified launch pad for improved performance.

Other highlights of OnGuard 7.3 include:

  • New hardware offering InfoGraphics and Software House iSTAR Pro paths to OnGuard migration, in addition to existing CASI and Honeywell solutions
  • A BACnet™ interface allowing an information exchange between the OnGuard system and many building automation systems to help reduce costs and improve operational efficiency
  • Integrated authentication of FIPS-201credentials

Value Added Resellers (VARs) and end users will also benefit from Lenel’s newly released OpenAccess API, providing developers an expanding web-services interface to the OnGuard security management system.

“The OnGuard 7.3 platform maximizes its open-architecture design allowing Lenel to continue adding and enhancing features that benefit our VARs and end users,” says McKay.

OnGuard 7.3 is available now through Lenel VARs throughout the Americas. For more information, visit or follow @LenelSystems on Twitter.
