18 Feb New certification for Qognify’s Access Control system
Access control system specialists Qognify have announced that they have received their LenelS2 factory certification and joined the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).
All of Qognify’s products (Situator, VisionHub, Cayuga, Ocularis and NiceVision) now interface with the OnGuard® access control system enabling customers to evaluate situations based on a synopsis of event and video data, allowing a faster and more targeted response to critical incidents. The newly certified interface allows Qognify software to receive and display events from the OnGuard platform, for instance “access granted” or “door opened”. In return, live and archive videos from cameras operated with one of Qognify’s Video Management Systems (VMS) or its Enterprise Incident Management System Situator can be displayed in the OnGuard system.
“Qognify has completed required factory testing at LenelS2 to validate the functionality of its interfaces to the OnGuard system. These interfaces provide great options for end users who prefer expanded integrated security solutions,” said John Marchioli, OAAP Product Management, LenelS2. “We look forward to Qognify’s continued involvement in the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program.”
“Being able to offer an interface to the OnGuard access control system is an important step for us, especially because the interface is available across Qognify’s entire product range. It reflects our strategy to offer our customers an overall security solution based on their individual needs and is another example of our cross-product initiatives,” said Chen Porat, Vice President of Research & Development at Qognify.
