Cloud-based access control with open architecture
Ubiquiti and Openpath both run their access control software via a cloud-based platform. Operating in the cloud gives you the benefit of being able to easily make changes and manage the system remotely. By eliminating the need for on-premise servers, cloud-based access control is a space-saving option for many businesses. When new software features and fixes are available, updates are done instantly over the cloud, rather than needing to roll up a truck to perform expensive, time-consuming maintenance.
Another benefit of the cloud-based system is that it’s easy to connect and manage other building systems alongside your access control. While Ubiquiti does operate in the cloud, the company is limited in their interoperability. They are only able to support native integrations with other Ubiquiti products and systems at this time. If you have existing systems, such as directory tools, tenant platforms, security cameras, or visitor management systems, you won’t be able to connect them to Ubiquiti access control, and they’ll still need to be managed in a separate interface.
Openpath is built on a truly open platform to maximize interoperability and flexibility. Companies can utilize Openpath’s API and mobile SDKs to connect other building systems, apps, and tools. Integrations help you streamline your building management and operations, saving your team time and hassle, and reducing expenses over time. Openpath is designed for seamless integrations, with an extensive library of native and out-of-the-box integrations with some of the most widely used tools across industries, including G Suite, Active Directory, Okta, Camio, Milestone, Envoy, Cisco Meraki, Ava, Avigilon, and more.
When choosing an access control company for your space, you want to be sure that you’ll be able to get the service and help you need, when you need it. Look for access control companies that offer 24/7 customer support and have received good reviews for responsiveness. Openpath is known for great customer service. Receive a fast response and work with a network of highly trained, certified access control installers and technology partners that provide the best experience.
