Sielox Enhances Access Control Platform

S

ielox LLC has added new functions to its Pinnacle™ v.10.4 Access Control Platform that enhance the implementation and maintenance of Wi-Fi locks on Sielox access control platforms. Pinnacle v.10.4 now provides seamless integration with Allegion Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks so they can easily be incorporated as part of a facility’s overall access control system using existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. The Pinnacle Schlage Wi-Fi integration provides access to the wireless locks’ features, enabling advanced door management capabilities along with credential management, detailed audit reports and customisable screen layouts. With this integration, users are able to control an unlimited number of Allegion Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks, manage cardholder records, create access groups and define holiday schedules. Allegion Schlage wireless locks can also now receive firmware updates through Sielox’s 1700 controller using Allegion ONR technology, which will save integrators tremendous time and money when upgrading and maintaining layered security systems. Sielox has also added a new Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.2) enhancement to Pinnacle v.10.4. TLS and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for improved network security. TLS/SSL operates by establishing an encrypted communication path between two applications, 'wrapping' the entire application protocol inside the secure link. This

provides complete privacy for the entire transaction so that sensitive information is protected from unauthorised access while in transit. Another update to Pinnacle v.10 is Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, a licensed service that can be installed on the same server as Pinnacle. The feature simplifies administration by assigning roles to users with permissions. All these new features boost the versatility and cost efficiency of Pinnacle for myriad access control applications. Pinnacle 10.4 will be released in Q2 2019. sst
