If you use Openpath today, having it work with Rhombus is easy. First, login to your Openpath account and navigate to Users -> Role Management. In order for a user to update the Openpath credentials in the Rhombus console, that user must be assigned to a role with the following permissions:
The Openpath integration can be found in Settings(red) -> Third Party Integrations (blue)
You'll see the Openpath integration option under Badge Systems.
Once you're there -all you need to do is enter your Openpath credentials, link your account to Rhombus - and voila, you're ready to go!
You can then associate any camera with a badge reader and select which events you want to automatically record.
Capturing Events and Reviewing Footage from Badge Entries
With the Openpath integration, Rhombus is automatically configured to capture the following events:
- When someone enters with a badge
- When a face does not match the badge used
By combining our security cameras with Openpath’s technology, organizations can improve their access control experience, eliminate abuse from outside parties, and verify who is entering their space at a given time.
In the Rhombus Console - motion, people, and vehicle events are automatically created and indexed in the video feed. This feature saves customers hours of investigative work every day and allows them to pinpoint and find specific events without having to manually rewind or fast forward through footage.
This event indexing is also carried over with the Openpath integration. All Openpath events and activities are automatically indexed so that you can filter or skip to a particular event, allowing you quickly investigate and secure entry points.
Facial Recognition that learns automatically
This integration also combines the badge information from Openpath and connects it to names and faces. This ensures that you no longer have to manually review video footage and identify if the correct face is using the correct badge.
Now with Rhombus, the system will automatically learn people’s faces based on their badge and verify that the correct person is entering your building. It’s pretty slick if we do say so ourselves!
We’re excited about this integration with Openpath, and we can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself. You can also check out their corresponding announcement about this new integration, here.

Remote Unlock Feature
A camera that is associated with the Openpath integration has the ability to send a 'Unlock Door' signal. This will Unlock the associated door for the set time you choose on the Openpath end (Ex. 3 sec, 5 sec, etc.). After the time is expired the door will lock. This feature is located in the top left hand corner of the camera view screen, just go ahead and click the button to activate this feature.
