Lenel announces new integrated security controller

Rochester, N.Y. – Oct. 12, 2010 – Lenel Systems International, a leading provider of enterprise software and integrated systems for corporate and government security customers, announces the launch of the new Security Series Hardware featuring an integrated controller that delivers intrusion detection combined with central station connectivity and access control.

Lenel is a business of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. With the new Security Series Hardware, customers can easily add intrusion functionality to access control systems. The integrated controller features a dial-out option for connection with central station monitoring, which results in reduced installation costs and increased monitoring flexibility to provide 24x7 reporting.

The Security Series Hardware is the next generation line of security controllers which includes an input/output controller, a reader interface, a command keypad and a dial-out modem. It is compatible with the soon-to-be released OnGuard 2010 Technology Update.

"Our experience across a broad range of industries has highlighted the need for increased flexibility in the installation, management and monitoring of security systems," said Luis Orbegoso, president of Lenel. "With this new single controller hardware line, we offer an integrated solution which can be easily scaled to meet current and emerging security needs."

Lenel will showcase the new Security Series Hardware together with OnGuard, SkyPoint, Lenel ILS, Facility Commander for Windows and Picture Perfect integration platforms at ASIS 2010 in Dallas, Texas, Oct. 12-14, at booth 2803.
