Sielox Expands Integration With Allegion for K-12 Security
Sielox LLC has further expanded the integration of its access control and emergency notification solutions with Allegion US to include the enhanced Schlage NDE wireless lock featuring an interior push button (IPB), which can lock a classroom door from the inside.
“The new Schlage NDE wireless lock with interior push button locking capability provides a fast and easy way to immediately secure a classroom door from the inside in the event of an emergency situation,” said Karen Evans, CEO and president at Sielox. “This new integration further capitalizes on the inherent benefits wireless and WiFi locks provide for advanced networked access control systems.”
Designed to meet the pressing demand for expansive school security nationwide, the Schlage NDE mobile enabled wireless lock benefits schools in a variety of ways including:
• Interior push button (IPB): Expands the way the lock operates to include storeroom, office and privacy functions. It allows students and faculty inside a classroom to simply lock the door with a push of a button, restricting access only to privileged card holders or first responders
• Advanced encryption and communication security: Provided at lock and as part of the larger system
• Ease of installation: Fits mechanical Schlage ND door prep with minor modifications for new DPS (door position switch)
• Same price, with major upgrade: The list price is the same as the legacy NDE lock, while offering upgraded features including IPB
“Allegion consistently looks for ways to deliver innovation and continuous improvement for end users and integrators, so we’re excited to expand integrations with Sielox and bring this to market,” said Mark Casey, director of commercial electronic sales at Allegion. “Schlage NDE mobile enabled wireless locks are ideal for schools that want an affordable, interoperable solution that offers advanced access control from the inside-out, for added protection during crises, when advanced security measures are needed.”
