Allegion US announced the launch of Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks with Si option, which now support HID smart cards and next-generation Seos credentials. The interoperable locks are suitable for customers who use HID smart cards and mobile credentials and want to extend electronic access control (EAC) further into their buildings through Schlage wireless locks. This new option gives security directors and facility managers the power to choose the solution that fits the demands of their campus, furthering Allegion’s commitment to being open, interoperable and flexible.
This enhancement to Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks is part of the continued wave in Allegion’s mission to work with leading consortiums and manufacturers in the industry to spearhead open architecture and mobile access adoption, making seamless security the new standard. With the Si option, Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks support HID iCLASS, iCLASS SE and Seos credentials.
As interoperability and open architecture continue to be a priority for institutions and campuses, the desire 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 that have an HID reader on the perimeter can add compatible Schlage wireless locks to interior doors.
“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,” says 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, Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks provide customers with support of HID smart cards and select mobile credentials when ordered with the Si option. The Si option allows for reading of the secure application area of the credentials versus only the card serial number, which means customers can take full advantage of the powerful, smart credentials they invested in.
Designed with more than a century of experience in the security industry, Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks provide Grade 1 security, simplicity and quality.
