Lenel has announced SkyPoint - an IP Video Surveillance product offering OEMed from OnSSI and integrated with Lenel's access control solution.
Given Lenel's strength in access control and the extensive functionality available in OnSSI NVRs and Ocularis Client interface, this will be an attractive solution for enterprise customers including large corporations and government organizations.
Lenel's website provides resources on Skypoint including a brochure and cutsheet.
Lenel's SkyPoint will use OnSSI's Ocularis technology (read our review on Ocularis) and work with OnSSI's recorders, existing Lenel recorders and, in the future, other 3rd party video recorders.
While Lenel has offered video surveillance for years, it did not stand out. With the new IP video offering, SkyPoint substantially increases Lenel's competitive strength in video. For Lenel, this will enhance, but not replace, their existing video surveillance products.
