inFRONT and CoreStreet Execute Distribution Agreement

inFRONT Takes On Key Role to Serve Lenel Security Integrators

New Orleans, LA and Cambridge, MA, April 2nd, 2008 – inFRONT, a pioneer in connecting high-ROI applications to facility access control systems, and CoreStreet, the leader in credential validation solutions, together announce today that inFRONT will distribute CoreStreet Card-Connected CHIP for Lenel, the Card-Connected™ solution for Lenel’s OnGuard® access control system. Under the agreement, inFRONT will market, deliver and support CoreStreet Card-Connected CHIP for Lenel via the Lenel Certified Reseller channel.

With CoreStreet’s Card-Connected technology, OnGuard users can extend the reach of their access control system to offline doors and mobile locks. A CoreStreet-Enabled™ lock does not require an Ethernet or power connection, eliminating the time and expense of wiring doors. As a result, the cost to connect a door to OnGuard is dramatically reduced, which justifies connecting more doors to the system.

"Delivering the many benefits of Card-Connected technology to customers requires not only CoreStreet-Enabled locks and Physical Access Control Systems (PACS), but is also critically dependent on reaching and educating the physical security reseller community,” said Todd Freyman, CoreStreet Vice-President and General Manager Physical Access Products. "We are looking forward to working with inFRONT to enable Lenel resellers to substantially expand their market potential with Card-Connected technology.”

“This agreement complements our strategy to bring high value products to Lenel users via the Lenel Value Added Reseller network,” says inFRONT CEO, Chris Laibe. “Our mission is to be recognized as the trusted partner for Lenel resellers as they strive to add value to their customers’ OnGuard installations. Supporting Lenel VARs to CoreStreet-Enable OnGuard with Card-Connected technology is one more important way we can help them enhance their customers’ return on their investment.”

“The addition of CoreStreet Card-Connected CHIP for Lenel to the OpenAccess Alliance Program should offer a real opportunity to the Lenel certified reseller community,” stated Rob Fitzpatrick, VP of Business Development for inFRONT. "Customers are searching for innovative ways to extend the reach of their access control systems without disrupting their users’ workflow. With CHIP For Lenel, OnGuard users can configure and privilege an offline door the same as a typical online door. This opens up opportunities to extend access control to remote points, gates, apartments, and even file cabinets and closets. The possibilities are impressive.”
