Amika Mobile Receives Lenel Certification Under Lenel's OpenAccess Alliance Program
Ottawa, December 16, 2014 - Amika Mobile Corporation today announced that it has again received Lenel® certification to satisfy Lenel's OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP). Amika Mobile's AMS for critical and emergency alerts integrates with the OnGuard® access control system, enabling alerts to be sent automatically based on physical systems events. This can trigger alerts with relevant text, image, and audio content based on security or life safety events, reaching mobile devices, desktops, displays, pagers, phones, strobes, etc. by group membership and location. The AMS can also receive responses to alerts through Amika Situation Commander. The AMS is also able to toggle contact closures, allowing an event back to OnGuard® such as triggering a lockdown.
"Amika Mobile has completed required factory testing at Lenel, which validated the functionality of the Amika Mobile Server (AMS) interface with OnGuard®. This allows customers to benefit from AMS alerting to security teams or en masse," said Gidon Lissai, director of strategic alliances, Lenel. "We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program."
Amika Mobile has unique patented technology that addresses two gaps in managing risk in the enterprise for public safety and security. First, the AMS automatically discovers recipient information from enterprise networks and directories in real-time, leveraging existing networks and best practices to ensure alerts reach all targeted groups and locations, greatly simplifying the administration of alert recipient information. Auto-discovery of mobile devices is especially important for airports, hospital complexes, sports arenas, entertainment venues, and campuses where frequent visitors need to be reached in critical situations. Second, AMS detects filters and manages critical security events triggered from many disparate physical security systems. Such dynamic events can include card access under duress, exceeded radiation thresholds, detected motion from cameras, fire panel events, etc. The AMS platform automatically delivers identified event alerts with relevant text, audio or images to appropriate security groups and triggers a lockdown or strobes as needed in combination with the Amika®Panic Button.
"Amika Mobile is the only critical and mass notification solution certified by Lenel with OnGuard® for 5 years now. Amika Mobile has kept up with new OnGuard® features as this is important for Amika Mobile, its teams, and its customers. The universal standardized connector technology for AMS has been implemented to meet customer demand for advanced auto-detection capabilities through Amika Mobile's sophisticated AI-based intelligent transaction engine for disparate events, targeted security team and mass evacuation alerts," said Amika Mobile CEO, Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima.
A demonstration of the integration is aimed at ISC West in Las Vegas and ASIS 2015 in Anaheim, CA.
