CARMEL, Ind.—Allegion a provider of security products and solutions, announced Identiv’s Hirsch Velocity Software and Mx controller now integrate with Schlage wireless electronic locks for a highly scalable access control offering. The integration supports Schlage LE wireless mortise locks, Schlage NDE wireless cylindrical locks and AD-400 wireless locks.

“Allegion continuously looks for ways to improve security, efficiency and convenience for end users and integrators, which is why we’re excited to work with Identiv,” Robert Lydic, vice president of PACS/OEM business at Allegion, said in the announcement. “Schlage wireless locks are ideal for facilities that want an affordable way to upgrade traditionally mechanical doors to electronic credentials. When paired with Velocity Software, users can bring a reliable, seamless experience deeper into their buildings.”

The award-winning, multi-door Hirsch Mx Controllers provide a wide range of features for enterprise-scale solutions. Hirsch Velocity Software is an integrated platform that manages access control and security operations, from single high-security rooms to multi-building, multi-location campuses, with the most stringent security compliance. When combined with the strength and flexibility of Schlage wireless locks, these offer an advanced access control solution that can be tailored to fit facilities of all sizes. And these solutions are agile by design, enabling users to start small and grow as security needs evolve.

“When flexibility and scalability are requirements, Velocity combined with Schlage’s wireless locking platforms is the perfect solution,” Sam Tuthill, Identiv senior product manager, said about the partnership. “Velocity’s new integration with these Schlage wireless locks expands the capabilities of our software while incorporating the power of Hirsch Mx controllers.”

This solution is ideal for customers looking to introduce or expand electronic access control in commercial real estate, K-12 and higher education campuses, assisted living buildings, medical offices and multifamily properties. Wireless electronic access control solutions allow users to secure more doors without the need to run wiring, enabling quick and easy installations with minimal interruptions.

The Schlage LE wireless mortise lock, Schlage NDE wireless cylindrical lock and AD-400 wireless lock were designed to bring electronic access control beyond traditional perimeter and high-security openings. These locks are adaptable: The Schlage AD Series has a modular design that enables the reader or communication module to be changed as needed. The Schlage LE and NDE allow end users to upgrade from the ENGAGE web and mobile applications to a fully integrated system through a physical access control provider. The lock, credential reader, door position sensor and request-to-exit switch are combined in one unit to simplify installation and reduce costs.
