New Onity software improves online and offline door control

Version 4.16 of Onity’s Integra3 software solution enables campuses to support online doors via ethernet rather than modem or RS485. The solution from Onity is used by more than 200 colleges and universities in North America for online and offline door control.


As the first electronic locking software to fully comply with Ontario, Canada, Building Code provisions, the Integra3 Version 4.16 improves campus safety and efficiency

ATLANTA (J, 2005) — Onity, the leading provider of electronic facility control solutions, recently announced the availability of its newly enhanced Integra3 software—a popular electronic locking system used by nearly 200 North American colleges and universities to improve control and security.

Now supporting online doors via Ethernet, Version 4.16 replaces previous connections to software through either modems or hard-wired RS485 networks.

With a new Alternative Fire Code (AFC) mode, the Integra3 software is the first in the electronic locking industry to meet all the provisions of the Ontario, Canada, Building Code, Section, which requires that doors not automatically lock when a person exits the room—instead of relying on the key holder to relock the door themselves.

“Not only does the AFC mode open the doors for Ontario universities seeking more control over facility access, but it also offers a revolutionary safety feature for schools in case of fire or disaster–when students’ rooms may require easy re-entry,” said Onity’s Vice President of Business Development Adam Yapkowitz.

Helping to eliminate recoding work for housing staff and improve security, Onity’s Version 4.16 is also the first software to allow for individual expiration of access to various doors for each user to happen on different dates. For example, if a campus maintenance worker will be repairing heaters in several rooms, but only will need access to one floor a day, that can be pre-coded instead of him having to return to the Housing Office daily for recoding.

Additional features of the Integra3 Version 4.16 include: Enhanced operator password security; enhanced system administration tools, such as the ability to see which machines and users are running the software; and enhanced interface engine support.

“Our latest software is ideal for institutions that require a combination of online and offline access integrated within a single, easy-to-use software package, and for any colleges or universities looking to improve the system for access currently in place,” Yapkowitz said.


Since 1941, Onity has become the world leader in delivering the finest electronic locks backed by legendary service, and has a sales and service network that spans more than 115 countries. With stand-alone electronic locks installed on more than 3 million doors globally, Onity’s ever-expanding family of electronic solutions today includes Electronic locking systems, Electronic in-room safes, and Energy management solutions.
