Fairfield, NJ 7/24/18 — ZKTeco USA today announced that it has received Lenel factory certification and continues playing a significant role in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).

ZKTeco fingerprint + card reader model OP-200 and face + card reader model OP-400 comprise the ZKTeco Opera Series of biometric readers, designed specifically for Lenel customers.

OP-200 and OP-400 are biometric door access control readers. What differentiates the OP-200 and OP-400 from other biometric readers in the security industry is that they directly interface with the OnGuard® access control system without needing any middleware. By eliminating middleware, both Lenel installers and end-users enjoy the benefit of fast, simple and affordable biometric upgrades to their building security. Other than installing a small software driver which establishes direct communication between the OP-200 (or OP-400) Master reader and OnGuard® using data conduit, there is no need to purchase, install or configure any middleware, whatsoever.

“ZKTeco USA has completed the required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to OnGuard® versions 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 73 and 7.4. The ZKTeco OP-200 and OP-400 biometric readers allow Lenel end-users to easily and economically add and manage fingerprint and face readers to their network,” says John Marchioli, Sr. Product Manager- Strategic Alliances. “Adding interfaced biometric readers to Lenel customers’ networks helps further improve their building security while also providing employees the convenience of no longer needing to carry badges or memorize PIN codes to gain door access,” he adds. “We look forward to ZKTeco USA’s continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program.”

Noted by ZKTeco USA CEO Larry Reed, “Unlike our competitors who need to develop & sell expensive supporting middleware, our affordable Opera biometric readers interface directly to OnGuard® without needing any middleware whatsoever. This translates into tremendous cost savings in both material and labor for Lenel installers and end-users.” “Noted by Manish Dalal, President & Founder ZKTeco USA , “OP-200 and OP-400 biometric readers are game changers. No other vendor can match both our simplicity & functionality.
