About the Program

Lenel OAAP works with new and current partners in three (3) parallel tracks to help you achieve certification (or re-certification) of your product integration to Lenel OnGuard.

A single certification accounts for the integration between one (1) version of a partner’s product and one (1) version of Lenel OnGuard.  If the partner’s product is a series of cameras, a single certification accounts for the integration between one (1) camera (based on camera features) and one (1) version of Lenel OnGuard.
