Allegion US recently announced the launch of two new Schlage products, the NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks. The products include an Si option that supports HID smart cards and next-generation Seos credentials. The products allow customers with HID smart cards and mobile credentials to extend access control even further into their buildings. The option allows facility managers freedom of choice in the solution that best fits their particular campus.
According to a news release, flexible solutions remain important as institutions and campuses continue to prioritize interoperability and open architecture. The Schlage products are compatible with any building that has an HID reader on the perimeter, allowing a combination of security and convenience while extending electronic access control (EAC) more deeply within 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.”
Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks include support from HID smart cards and—when ordered with the Si option—select mobile credentials. Other benefits include freedom of choice and the ability to leverage existing credential investment using the Si option. With this feature, the Si option allows the reading of the secure application area of credentials as opposed to the card serial number, meaning customers can take advantage of smart credentials that they’ve already invested in.
