ALLEGION EXPANDS INTEGRATION WITH SIELOX, UNVEILING NEW MOBILE ENABLED SCHLAGE® NDE WIRELESS LOCK TO IMPROVE K-12 SECURITY

The industry-leading wireless cylindrical lock is now mobile enabled, with a new Interior Push Button (IPB) operation to easily lock classroom doors from the inside

CARMEL, Ind., (June 23, 2020) – Allegion US, a leading provider of security products and solutions, today announces the expanded integration with Sielox and unveils the enhanced Schlage® NDE mobile enabled wireless lock with Interior Push Button (IPB) operation. Sielox LLC, a leader in layered security solutions, is the first to complete the integration to include this new generation of Schlage NDE wireless locks, providing enhanced K-12 security and greater control in emergency situations.

“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, as well as added protection during crises, when advanced security measures are critical.”

Designed to meet the needs and demand for expansive school security nationwide, the Schlage NDE mobile enabled wireless locks benefit schools in a variety of ways, including: 

  • New 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. 
  • Mobile enabled: Engineered to the highest standards for increased efficiency, trusted security and eliminated cost of managing physical keys. 
  • Flexibility: Open architecture design and interoperability capabilities gives schools the freedom to choose the PACS (Physical Access Control Solution) provider that best fits their needs. 
  • 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, major upgrade: The list price is the same as the legacy NDE lock, while offering upgraded features including IPB and mobile enabled capabilities.

“The new mobile enabled Schlage NDE wireless locks with interior push button locking capabilities provide schools with an ideal solution to immediately and easily lock classroom doors from the inside in the event of an emergency situation,” said Karen Evans, CEO and president at Sielox. “This new integration additionally brings the inherent benefits wireless and WiFi locks provide for advanced networked access control systems.” This enhancement is part of the next wave in Allegion's mission to work with leading players in the industry to spearhead smart lock and mobile access adoption, making seamless, comprehensive security the new standard in K-12 schools and beyond. The Schlage mobile enabled NDE wireless locks are the first release in the Schlage Mobile Access Solutions portfolio that launched earlier this month, catering to the education, multifamily and commercial markets.

Prior to this integration, Sielox was first-to-market with Allegion Over Network Reprogramming (ONR) Firmware Update Solution for Allegion’s portfolio of networked locks and devices, providing users and integrators substantial time and cost savings by simplifying and centralizing firmware updates. Additionally, Sielox offers its innovative Pinnacle for Schlage WiFi Service for Schlage NDE cylindrical and LE mortise wireless locks via the company’s Pinnacle Access Control Platform. This comprehensive door control offline solution enables scheduled management using a facility’s existing WiFi network eliminating the need for a control panel.
