The interoperable locks are intended for customers using HID smart cards and mobile credentials who want to extend access control further into their buildings using Schlage wireless locks. This new option gives security directors and facility managers the power to choose the solution that fits the needs of their campus, furthering Allegion’s commitment to being open, interoperable and flexible.
As interoperability and open architecture continue to be a priority for institutions and campuses, the need for flexible solutions from manufacturers is increasingly important as they provide customers with freedom of choice and a convenient path to adopting new technology as it becomes available. Now buildings with an HID reader on the perimeter can add the compatible Schlage wireless locks to interior doors, enhancing security and convenience while driving electronic access control (EAC) deeper into the building.
“As Allegion works to be the partner of choice, it’s important for us to embrace open architecture and interoperability so we can collectively decrease the complexity and increase the adoption of EAC solutions,” said Devin Love, electronics product leader at Allegion. “In addition to the AD Series locks, the Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks will provide customers with an expanded portfolio of HID-supported solutions from Schlage. We’re excited about the opportunity to help our customers achieve a more secure, convenient and flexible EAC experience that meets their security and budget needs of today and tomorrow.”
Whether upgrading from a competitor’s wireless locks or implementing new mobile-enabled hardware, the Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks offer customers support of HID smart cards and select mobile credentials when ordered with the Si option.
With the Si option, the Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks support HID iCLASS, iCLASS SE, and Seos credentials.
