VIDEO SECURITY SOLUTIONSLenel a United Technology Company


When Lenel was founded in 1991, competing security systems were highly proprietary and closed.  Yet Lenel founders and engineers saw the value of open architecture and streamlined integration with third-party security components.

In 1995, Lenel launched OnGuard, the first open architecture security platform, to help customers achieve ultimate integration flexibility on every aspect of their system, from access control and video management to operating systems and databases.  Today, Lenel provides solutions for corporations worldwide, including Fortune 100 firms, financial institutions, hospitals, schools and universities and government facilities.

OnGuardWith OnGuard, Lenel continues to advance capabilities to support all customers’ current and, even more critically, their future security requirements.  The open architecture that allows Lenel OnGuard to integrate seamlessly with advanced third-party technologies also enables cost-effective system migration and protection of legacy investments.

Lenel OnGuard was developed for the Mercury family of access control product solutions.  Mercury develops and produces access control equipment for over two dozen solution providers of which Lenel is the world’s largest.
