Openpath Works With Legacy Access Control Systems

Posted by Openpath on Feb 6, 2019 8:55:01 AM


Do you already have an existing access control system installed?

Now you can modernize your building without replacing the access control system that’s already there.  Want to add the mobile, hands-free option but keep your keycard and fobs already in circulation? No problem.  Want cloud-based, real time reporting that can be managed from anywhere? Consider it done. Want to have your cake and eat it too? Why shouldn’t you.  

We know deploying an access control system isn’t always an easy task and understand that many already have a legacy system installed involving complex integrations and a significant financial investment.  The idea of going through the hassle of replacing everything isn’t appealing, but the idea of upgrading your building amenities to offer the most cutting edge technology to your tenants or employees certainly is. With our expanded deployment options, Openpath now allows you to keep your current system, and add on Openpath to leverage our cloud and mobile capabilities. By simply adding Openpath to your existing system, you’ll still be able to use your old credentials but now have the added convenience of utilizing our hands free access with our mobile credentials.

Here are a few key reasons you’ll want to effortlessly upgrade the access control system you already have by adding Openpath to your building:

  • Backwards compatible with legacy keycards & credentials

  • Uses existing wiring which reduces install costs

  • Runs alongside existing access control system

  • Enables Mobile Credential use with legacy access control systems

  • Adds cloud controls to legacy access control systems

  • Enables easy upgrade to encrypted credentials

  • Supports legacy unencrypted credentials

  • Enables real-time reporting for buildings with legacy systems

  • Brings building up to latest cyber security standards
