CARMEL, IND. (August 27, 2018) – Allegion US, a leading provider of security products and solutions, announced IDenticard’s PremiSys™ software now integrates with its revolutionary K-12 security solutions, the Von Duprin® Remote Undogging (RU) and Remote Monitoring (RM) options. These wireless solutions expand the reach of electronic access control to secondary openings.
“Controlling access is a critical part of a school’s efforts to provide a safe learning environment, and it begins with a secure perimeter,” said Yong Lacy, Allegion US category leader, openings. “We’ve found that many schools focus a majority of funds on the front entrance, which, unfortunately, leaves secondary entrances vulnerable. In response, Allegion created the Von Duprin RU and RM options to help schools build a more secure perimeter within budget. Our Software Alliance members like IDenticard help make this possible.”
When integrated with IDenticard’s PremiSys, end users can remotely lock and monitor every connected opening—from classrooms to common areas to perimeter doors—through a single database. Lockdown of an entire facility can occur with the push of a button.
The Von Duprin RU retrofit kit for exit devices is a cost-effective solution for these secondary openings that enables remote undogging for centralized lock down and door status monitoring with integrated request to exit (RX), latch bolt (LX) and door position switch (DPS) signaling capabilities. The RU connects wirelessly via BLE to the ENGAGE Gateway, providing real-time, bi-directional communication to the IDenticard PremiSys software via IP network connection directly to the Gateway. RU is a modular battery powered kit that can be added on to existing Von Duprin 98/99 and 33A/35A series devices. The RM option is the sensor-only configuration for exit-only or fire-rated doors that require monitoring. It provides visibility to door status with the same RX, LX and DPS signals as the RU, without the centralized lockdown component.
"IDenticard's team of access control specialists works closely with Allegion representatives to deliver premier solutions for the end user," said Aaron Henderson, director of sales at IDenticard Access Control. "This latest product integration enables IDenticard to deliver a more sophisticated enterprise solution for schools, hospitals and other facilities that would benefit from the ability to immediately lock down every door in their facility and gain peace of mind in knowing that all doors are secured."
IDenticard’s comprehensive offering of Allegion wireless solutions includes integrations with the Schlage® LE, NDE and AD-400 wireless locks. Allegion will demonstrate the Von Duprin solution at booth #3715 during the Global Security Exchange exhibit hall in Las Vegas, Sept. 25-27.
