Allegion Ends aptiQ, XceedID Brands; Moves Readers, Credentials to Schlage Portfolio
Compatibility and support will continue as normal, but customers should expect to see future products, training materials and other resources with the Schlage logo.
CARMEL, Ind. — Allegion (NYSE: ALLE), a leading security products and solutions provider, has moved access control card readers and credentials to its Schlage portfolio. The move is said to give customers a single, unified source for access control solutions.
Customers who use Schlage readers and credentials — formerly branded aptiQ and XceedID — can expect the same products, part numbers, compatibility and customer service, according to a nrews release. The only change is that these products now carry the Schlage name, says said Jon Mooney, Allegion’s business leader for readers, credentials and biometrics.
“From mechanical locks and keys to electronic locks, readers and credentials, Schlage can now meet all of your access control needs,” Mooney says.
While Allegion has discontinued the aptiQ and XceedID brand names, current installations will not be affected. Newly branded Schlage products will work with and alongside aptiQ and XceedID products. Compatibility and support will continue as normal, but customers should expect to see future products, training materials and other resources with the Schlage logo.
Schlage already had a comprehensive portfolio of mechanical and electronic locking solutions. Incorporating readers into its access control offering provides additional resources to fit the needs and budgets of any facility. Because Schlage is a trusted name for keys and key systems, including electronic credentials completes that portfolio as well, according to the company.
“Our goal is to help customers deliver the most secure, convenient and efficient solution — with the simplicity of using a single brand instead of three,” says Mooney. “This should make solutions easier to understand, sell and service for our channels. Customers order Schlage credentials to use with Schlage readers or Schlage locks. It’s just like it’s done on the mechanical side.”
