"Pinnacle v.10.4 provides a host of features that are unique to Sielox that further enhance the implementation and maintenance of Wi-Fi locks on our access control platform," said Karen Evans, President of Sielox. "This, in addition to other new additional features such as LDAP (Active Directory) and enhanced security, further leverages the versatility and cost effectiveness of Pinnacle for countless access control applications."
Pinnacle v.10.4 provides seamless integration with the Allegion Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks so they can be easily incorporated as part of an installation's general access control system using the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. Pinnacle Schlage's Wi-Fi integration provides access to the functions of wireless locks, enabling advanced door management capabilities, along with credential management, detailed audit reports and customizable screen designs. With this integration, users can control an unlimited number of Allegion Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks, manage cardholder records, create access groups, define vacation schedules and more. Pinnacle now reports on additional Schlage wireless lock fields, which provide users with a single panel to monitor the status of the lock.
An industry first, The Allegion Schlage ™ NDE and LE wireless locks can receive firmware updates when the Allegion ONR function of the Sielox 1700 controller is used through the RS-485 communications. By pressing the ONR firmware package for the Allegion Schlage wireless locks with 1700 controllers, users and integrators can save time and money.
Sielox has also added a new Transport Layer Security. (TLS 1.2) upgrade to Pinnacle v.10.4. TLS and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to improve network security. TLS / SSL works by establishing an encrypted communication path between two applications, "wrapping" the entire protocol of the application within the secure link. This provides complete privacy for the entire transaction, so that confidential information is protected against unauthorized access while in transit. Pinnacle TLS 1.2, which is available to current Pinnacle users, provides compatible level security.
An additional update to Pinnacle v.10 includes Lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP), a licensed service that can be installed on the same server as Pinnacle. The function simplifies administration by assigning roles to users with permissions, which makes the overall solution more efficient and easier to use for larger security systems. Pinnacle 10.4 will be launched in the second quarter of 2019 and is available in several configurations that can be tailored specifically to the needs of businesses or facilities of any size, or integrated into a layered systems model.
