Lenel secures over one thousand educational facilities around the globe.
With hundreds of access points, and thousands of people walking in and out of buildings on a daily basis, your biggest concern is to create a safer environment for students, faculty and visitors, while protecting your assets, equipment and property. In such a complex environment, assaults, thefts and crimes against property are another major concern. A comprehensive and robust security solution is what you need.
Lenel offers comprehensive security solutions for people, assets and property through a wide array of security products seamlessly integrated into a single robust system.
In an educational facility, OnGuard can monitor parking lots, pedestrian malls, residence halls and exterior walls, all from a centralized surveillance point. Going beyond surveillance, OnGuard’s ability to capture and store video using off-the-shelf cameras and recording technology helps control break-ins, thefts and loitering, as well as capture possible destruction of property for immediate response. In a large environment such as a university campus, it is critical for security personnel to be able to quickly react to any alarm or event from any point within the facility. Using OnGuard, authorized personnel can log into the system using a password from any workstation connected to the campus’ LAN/WAN. They can acknowledge alarms, control cardholder access to specific areas, view video in real time and display an interactive map showing where the event is occurring. In case of emergency, both inside or outside of the facility, the system can quickly lock down doors and entryways, launch video and send a page or e-mail to security personnel. Using the powerful OnGuard system, the possibilities are endless.
Each year, schools, colleges and universities receive high volumes of new students that need to be enrolled. OnGuard ID CredentialCenter provides user-friendly, one-stop enrollment, encoding and printing of credentials for the thousands of students, faculty and staff who enroll at the same time. OnGuard’s flexibility allows easy information updates as students change their status or graduate. Visitors can also be managed centrally using OnGuard Visitor. OnGuard supports inline smart card encoding to streamline credential production, a feature very much appreciated during peak enrollment times.
OnGuard seamlessly integrates with fire alarm, intrusion detection, paging, fault tolerant and disaster recovery systems to provide a comprehensive security solution. In addition, OnGuard seamlessly integrates physical and logical access. As a new student or faculty staff member is added to the OnGuard system, the person’s Windows Active Directory account is automatically updated. A network logon account is activated at the same time that an ID badge is issued. This feature greatly improves efficiency and reduces administrative work within the IT department. OnGuard can integrate not only with the existing security infrastructure, but goes further to integrate with other systems important to an educational environment, including student record databases, library systems, catering systems, human resources and finance systems.
