Compatibility and integration
Both Openpath and Swiftlane integrate with OKTA, G Suite, Azure Active Directory, and Envoy for office and identity management. It’s important to note that Openpath is built on open API standards, making it easy to support limitless integrations with all your software, hardware, and apps. The ONVIF-compliant video platform connects seamlessly to leading video security and analytics providers, including Ava, Avigilon, Cisco Meraki, Milestone, and more.
The Openpath solution is also backward compatible with any legacy access control system, meaning you can install the Openpath Video Intercom and Smart Readers in your building, and still use your existing backend hardware. The Openpath Video Intercom Reader Pro is a multi-technology reader that supports a wide range of secure access methods, all on a single device.
The Swiftlane video intercom is not compatible with keycards, fobs, or other access methods. Therefore, you’d have to buy and manage separate hardware and credentials if you wanted the flexibility of multiple access methods. If your building already uses a legacy access control system, you would need to install the Swiftlane readers next to the existing legacy readers, which is bulky and confusing for visitors. At the time of this Swiftlane review, there are a limited number of integrations available for the system.
