Onity's Integra 5 electronic locking platform is now being made available to the commercial access control market. Due to Integra 5's  ability to integrate off-line (stand alone) electronic locking devices into an online (hard-wired) access control system, it provides an affordable locking solution for commercial facilities of all kinds, including health care facilities, military bases, government buildings and corporate offices. Onity  is part of UTC Fire  & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

Onity's Integra 5 locking platform combines both online and offline locking devices into a single integrated access control system. Information about who is allowed to access specific doors, along with any associated time and date parameters, is stored within each individual lock. This greatly reduces the cost of installation by eliminating the need for costly wiring to any offline doors.  The lock hardware itself provides additional cost savings.
