Lenel Partners Angry, Lenel Does Not Care

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 01, 2016

Even more than Arecont, one manufacturer stands out for consistent complaints - Lenel.

Over the past few years, no manufacturer has had more complaints in as many areas as Lenel.

Compared to Lenel's origins as one of the best enterprise access control providers, this fall is surprising. But the company, due to indifference, arrogance, and ineptitude has fallen hard.

In this report, we examine the numerous problems faced, sharing 24 partner quotes, and what this means for the former leader.
