Lenel Introduces 'Lite' Version of OnGuard WATCH to Visualize Critical Security Data

Lenel Systems International, Inc. today announced OnGuard WATCH lite, a free version of the comprehensive, Web-based dashboard tool for OnGuard system users. The dashboard discovers and presents security data to security & IT professionals in a whole new way — enabling them to visualize the information at once to allow for quicker decisions, rather than scanning multiple reports. OnGuard WATCH lite, along with the full version of OnGuard WATCH (Web Access Trending & Comprehensive Health), will be on display at ISC West, April 15-17 in Las Vegas. Lenel is part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

OnGuard WATCH lite places actionable information at the fingertips of key personnel. Users can monitor OnGuard system information through one graphical and intuitive interface to more efficiently manage the OnGuard system.

"OnGuard WATCH lite is a great way for existing users to get a flavor of the benefits of this new dashboard," said Ross McKay, director, product management, Lenel. "It helps them visualize important security data to get an overall snap-shot of OnGuard system performance — taking just seconds to understand system health. Additionally, it gives the user a sneak-peek into the new look and feel of the next generation of OnGuard systems, as well as underlying technologies such as the new Lenel Services Platform and evergreen browser support."

With OnGuard WATCH lite, users can quickly view:

Total counts of access panels, readers, inputs, outputs, cardholders, active badges, visitors and visits

Basic system information about OnGuard and Windows operating system, SQL server versions and service packs

Database backup details

New badges created per day

Alarms generated per day

System performance such as CPU, memory usage, hard drive, peak usage

Error logs

For additional ease of use, the date range can display a few days, months or years of captured data and deeper analysis can be conducted into hours and minutes.

OnGuard WATCH lite — available in May — is free for customers with a valid software upgrade and support plan and is also available as a free 90 day trial for customers without a support plan. The full version of OnGuard WATCH will be available in late summer through Lenel value-added resellers.
