“Many of today's property owners and managers expect open architecture platforms when considering new physical security system projects. Additionally, they want to retain as much of their original investment as possible during existing access control system upgrades," said Leroy Walden, LEED AP, and Vice President of Automation & Control Solutions. “We have a clear vision of how we desire to partner with our customers in meeting their integrated security requirements and are diligent in seeking innovative solutions to further strengthen our charge. In our search for an open platform access control system we are pleased to say that Open Options became a clear leader.

Open Options provides a superior solution for McKenney’s current and future customers that are trapped in an end-of-life proprietary security system.  Open Options’ M5 Bridge, a one-for-one direct replacement solution for all end of life Casi Micro 5 systems, provides a simple path to a non-proprietary system for all current Casi Micro 5 end users. The streamlined process utilizes existing Micro/5 enclosures, existing power and wiring for a screwdriver-less retrofit. The M5 Bridge maintains Open Options' open architecture approach and provides optimal solutions for today’s property owners and managers.
