CARMEL, Ind. — To enhance cost-effectiveness and scalability, Schneider Electric’s Andover Continuum Netcontroller II and ACX 57XX family of controllers can now integrate wired and wireless Schlage AD-Series locks, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies (IR) announced.
Within the Andover Continuum Cyberstation workstation software, Schlage locking devices look and function like a normal door. An xdriver at the controller level provides access to the locks. Users can remotely administer card access, limiting the need and costs for issuing new cards or programming keypads, according to the company
“Integrators and end-users can create the access control system that will protect their people and property today while having the flexibility to easily and economically upgrade their systems in the future,” says Dave Sullivan, president of sales, IR Security Technologies. “They provide multiple, interchangeable credential reader modules, interchangeable offline, wired and wireless networking modules, finishes and levers so that access control can now be installed at doors where it had been previously cost prohibitive.”
