What is z9/op=n?

z9/op=n is the access-control industry's leading open-architecture technology, enabling unprecedented interoperability among a wide range of hardware and software from multiple vendors.

Access-control panels powered by z9/op=n no longer face technical obstacles integrating with multiple software platforms. Interoperability with multiple software platforms, which used to take years, now takes months.

With the technical obstacles gone, you can focus instead on your strategic partnerships, product development, marketing, and your customers. And don't worry, z9/op=n doesn't make all access-control panels the same — it is flexible and powerful enough to allow a wide range of product and feature differentiation. Which software vendors may integrate with your hardware, is still under your control.

Access-control software supporting z9/op=n faces dramatically reduced development time to support hardware from an additional vendor, future-proofing your investment. This is because all z9/op=n hardware is accessed using the same Z9 SDK and conceptual model, with variations only for physical hardware configuration, and feature set.

z9/op=n doesn't require interoperability, it enables and facilitates it. So you are still in control of which types of hardware are supported by your software.

z9/op=n is the last access-control panel integration you'll ever need to develop.

Dealers, Integrators, End-users

The range of hardware and software combinations you have to choose from increases dramatically with z9/op=n. You are no longer locked into a single software platform or a single hardware platform.

Hardware vendors have a choice, software vendors have a choice, customers have a choice — and everybody wins.
