LifeSafety Power® NetLink One Drop™ Updated With Enhanced Compatibility 

OneDrop, in Partnership with Authentic Mercury Security, now offers full compatibility with MSM Enterprise, SNMP, and more.

Libertyville, IL, April 16, 2020 — LifeSafety Power, in partnership with Mercury Security, has updated OneDrop™ functionality to offer compatibility with MSM Enterprise, SNMP communication, and firmware integration.

NetLink One Drop, winner of the 2019 New Product of the year from Security Today, works with Mercury Security and LifeSafety Power’s NetLink Network Communications Module to share the Ethernet connection with an LP Series controller.  Traditionally, managed power access control systems required two separate network drops - one for system power and another for the access control panel.  NetLink One Drop™ allows connection of the NetLink directly to an LP Series Mercury controller, eliminating one network drop. The latest update requires a Mercury LP series controller using firmware revision 1.27.2 or higher, and NetLink firmware revision 9.17 or higher.

NetLink One Drop eliminates the physical connection of the network communications module to the network, reduces the number of network drops for installation savings and lowers the potential cybersecurity risk profile of the device.

“OneDrop made managed power more accessible in applications with limited network resources,” said Kevin Ture, Applications Enginenering Manager for LifeSafety Power. "With these latest updates, OneDrop now provides full NetLink functionality with Mercury LP controllers through a single network drop."
