LenelS2 has announced the release of its Elements system, a cloud-based access control and video management system delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution.

The Elements system is designed to be easily installed and simple to use with a mobile-first, intuitive user interface and information is accessible from anywhere on any device, with automated updates, reduced on-site maintenance, minimized training requirements, and real-time feature updates without on-site maintenance visits.

Additionally, mobile credentialing issuance and management can be done completely through the Elements web portal, eliminating the need to access a separate system, allowing touchless access via LenelS2’s BlueDiamond mobile credential, services and reader solution.

Elements system joins LenelS2’s OnGuard system and web-based NetBox appliance-oriented access control system to cover the full range of requirements from small to medium businesses, to enterprise and government customers.

“Developed from the ground up as a SaaS solution, the Elements system provides businesses and other organizations with a flexible cloud, subscription-based option for how they want to deploy and manage their security systems,” says Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2.

“Customers will appreciate the ability to rapidly provision and operate remote offices using a centrally-managed cardholder database that can also be connected to our feature-rich and highly trusted OnGuard system located at their main facilities.”

Elements includes video management functionality, providing system configuration, real-time video verification of alarms and events as well as the ability to view live or recorded video through a single user interface. The system works with any reader that supports Wiegand or OSDP protocols and Mercury hardware, and incorporates privacy by design cybersecurity principles with end-to-end encryption from cloud to edge devices.
