The GuardRFID AllGuard® real-time location system interfaces with LenelS2’s OnGuard access control security system to create smarter access control
Vancouver, BC, Canada – July 21, 2020 — Guard RFID Solutions Inc., a proven expert in real-time location systems, announced today that it has successfully completed certification for the interface of its AllGuard real time location system with the OnGuard® version 7.5 access control system.
“GuardRFID has completed required factory testing at LenelS2 to validate the functionality of its interface to the OnGuard system. Since OnGuard version 6.4, GuardRFID continues to keep its certifications with the OnGuard platform up to date, allowing users to employ the latest features and function,” said John Marchioli, OAAP Product Management, LenelS2. “We look forward to their continued involvement in the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program.”
The interface enables seamless data exchange between AllGuard and OnGuard through LenelS2’s DataConduIT application interface. This allows OnGuard system users to use GuardFRID’s active RFID/RTLS infrastructures and tags for a variety of use cases in healthcare, industrial, and commercial applications.
“This interface provides customers with real-time security and privacy protection, including people and asset perimeter protection as well as real-time tracking and location,” said GuardRFID CTO Dalibor Pokrajac. “This added layer of intelligence, which we call smarter access control, increases the level of security while adding greater flexibility.”
In addition to the software-based interface, GuardRFID also renewed its certification for one of its active RFID readers (TRC-LNL) to interface directly with the LenelS2 access panel (eg LNL2200, LNL1300). This interface does not require use of DataConduIT or the AllGuard server. TRC-LNL communicates with LenelS2 access panels via the RS-485 interface, using the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). This direct communication allows LenelS2 customers to leverage the benefits of long-range RFID (up to 10 meters tag read range), without the complexity of additional software components.
