ZKAccess announced last week that it has received Lenel factory certification and has joined the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).
The ZKAccess OP-200 fingerprint reader interfaces with the OnGuard access control system to provide biometric capabilities without additional middleware.
“ZKAccess has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to the OnGuard system, versions 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2. The ZKAccess model OP-200 fingerprint reader allows Lenel end-users to easily and economically add and manage fingerprint readers to their network,” said Zach Roth, OAAP program manager, Lenel. “Adding integrated biometric readers to Lenel customers’ networks provides an opportunity to improve their facility security while also providing employees the convenience of no longer needing to carry badges or memorize PIN codes to gain door access,” he added. “We look forward to ZKAccess’ continued involvement in the Lenel Open Access Alliance Program.”
“Unlike our competitors who need to develop and sell expensive supporting middleware, our affordable Opera biometric readers communicate directly to the OnGuard system without needing any middleware whatsoever”, commented ZKAccess CEO Larry Reed. “This translates into tremendous cost savings in both material and labor for Lenel installers and end-users.”
“OP-200 is just one model in our new Opera series of biometric readers designed to integrate with OnGuard,” added Manish Dalal, COO and Product Manager, ZKAccess.
