In the age of digital transformation and the evolving mobile economy, providing secure, convenient access is at the forefront of security challenges faced by multifamily properties, businesses, and campuses. Allegion US’s Schlage Mobile Access Solutions portfolio have been designed to redefine access control for the mobile world.
As a complete cloud-based ecosystem, it enables the use of mobile credentials on openings across a property or site.
The new credential features AES-256 asymmetric credential encryption and works in offline scenarios once downloaded from the cloud. This means it is reliable and even works in environments where internet access is down or cellular service is spotty.
The Schlage Mobile SDK was designed for Physical Access Control Software (PACS) providers to easily integrate this Bluetooth mobile credential into their system, which allows seamless credential management and secure delivery/communication with Schlage locks.
The Schlage Multifamily Resident Door Lock is now mobile enabled, as is the Schlage NDE Mobile Enabled Wireless Lock, a wireless cylindrical lock with new interior push button that expands the way the lock operates to include storeroom, office, privacy and apartment functions.
The Schlage LE Mobile Enabled Wireless Lock is a wireless mortise lock that is now mobile enabled and available with an indicator, interior push button, or deadbolt to support storeroom, privacy, apartment, and office applications.
The Schlage MTB Mobile Enabled Multi-Technology Readers are now mobile enabled and compatible with 2.4 GHz Bluetooth, 13.56 MHz smart and 125 kHz proximity, allowing the ability to process multiple credential formats simultaneously. They feature a RS-485 interface and out-of-the-box support for Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) for secure bi-directional communication. The MTB series can be simply installed with plug and play mode or commissioned via the ENGAGE app for simplified, in-field configuration.
Designed to work with a Schlage mobile enabled multi-technology reader, the Schlage CTE Controller is an ENGAGE-enabled, single-opening controller that allows perimeter and common area openings to be managed in a single system along with Schlage Control Mobile Enabled Smart Locks and NDE cylindrical and LE mortise wireless locks. It is ideal for multifamily, commercial mixed use and retail storefront applications.
While mobile access is not new to the industry, Schlage’s belief in open global standards and interoperability, along with its commitment to cybersecurity, differentiates its portfolio from competition. This ultimately provides customers with better options for control of their security solutions today and in years to come.
“Allegion is always looking for ways to address our customers’ evolving needs with real, sustainable innovation, so we’re excited to launch this comprehensive cloud-based mobile enabled portfolio,” said Brad Sweet, commercial marketing leader at Allegion. “Schlage Mobile Access Solutions is ideal for small to medium-sized businesses, multifamily properties and higher education campuses that want a customizable, interoperable, secure and convenient access control solution.”
