Lenel, Mercury celebrate 20 years of innovative access control solutions

October 5, 2015

Since 1995, Lenel, a leading provider in advanced security systems, and Mercury Security, a global leader in the supply of OEM access control hardware, have delivered innovative, open access control solutions to security professionals around the globe. The companies will celebrate their 20-year relationship with special events at ASIS 2015, Sept. 28-30 in Anaheim, Calif. Lenel is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“Each organization brings best-in-class contributions to the business relationship,” said Ron Virden, managing director, electronic access solutions at UTC. “Together, Lenel software and Mercury hardware provide leading organizations with innovative, open access solutions to help protect people, property and assets. We count on Mercury hardware to support our proven, advanced access control and security management OnGuard® platform.”

Lenel’s expertise in software and integration with its industry-leading OnGuard platform along with Mercury’s expertise in hardware and firmware offer customers a comprehensive and powerful integrated system solution.

Frank Gasztonyi, CTO and co-founder of Mercury stated, “The company’s mission has been to become an extension of its partners’ engineering staff to deliver innovative solutions for total building security, beyond access control.

“Over the last 20 years, we’ve established a deep level of collaboration with Lenel. Combining Lenel’s talent and expertise with our technical leadership has resulted in recognition of both organizations as leading providers of world-class solutions that are built to last decades,” said Gasztonyi. “We offer the expertise to support the system development process and help reduce hardware engineering and development time to meet today’s toughest security demands.”

 “Support for open architecture is built into the culture at Lenel and Mercury,” Virden said. “This allows end users to seamlessly integrate a full suite of security management technologies tailored to their specific needs, while eliminating the need to rip and replace hardware for system upgrades or enhancements.”

“Open standards are about letting end users choose security solutions based on features and functionality,” said Gasztonyi. “We don’t lock them into proprietary equipment that may not fully meet their needs today or into the future.”

Lenel and Mercury will celebrate throughout ASIS 2015 with promotions highlighting the 20-year relationship. “Twenty years later Mercury remains one of our longest supplier relationships. We are excited about continuing the close collaboration for many years to come,” Virden said.
