Sielox LLC has expanded the integration of its access control and emergency notification solutions with Allegion US to include the new Schlage NDE wireless lock, featuring an Interior Push Button (IPB) which can easily lock a classroom door from the inside.

Sielox claims that it is the first to complete an integration to include this new generation of Schlage NDE wireless locks, providing schools with enhanced security and greater control in emergency situations.

“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,” commented 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. The new IPB feature expands the way the lock operates to include storeroom, office and privacy functions. The IPB 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

Also, advanced encryption and communication security is now provided at lock and as part of the larger system. For ease of installation, the new lock fits mechanical Schlage ND door prep specs with minor modifications for the new DPS (Door Position Switch). The list price of the new lock 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 are 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.”

Prior to this latest collaboration with Allegion, Sielox was first-to-market in integration with networked Schlage locks and Von Duprin devices, providing Over Network Reprogramming (ONR) firmware updates via Sielox's popular 1700 controller. Sielox also previously integrated its flagship Pinnacle Access Control Platform and Schlage NDE wireless cylindrical and LE wireless mortise locks to provide remote control and management of doors using a facility’s existing WiFi infrastructure, dramatically reducing installation costs.
