Allegion Partners With LenelS2 to Approve Schlage Readers For Government Use
Allegion’s Schlage MT Readers may be used for government projects when paired with the LenelS2 OnGuard version 7.6 access control system.
CARMEL, Ind. — Allegion U.S. announces it has received federal government approval for its Schlage Multi-Technology (MT-485) Readers, when paired with the LenelS2 OnGuard version 7.6 access control system.
Schlage’s MT Readers simplify access control solutions by recognizing magnetic stripe, proximity, Schlage smart card and NFC-enabled smart devices with a firmware update, ensuring a seamless transition to high-security smart technology in the future, according to the company.
The readers are fully OSDP compliant when ordered with RS-485 and have an open architecture platform designed to work with industry standards and common access control system interfaces, fitting a variety of placement needs.
The LenelS2 OnGuard version 7.6 access control system offers feature and operability enhancements, while also extending its Cloud compatibility, integration capability and convenience.
LenelS2 is the first partner to complete certification for the Government Service Administration’s (GSA) Approved Product List (APL) with the OnGuard system paired with Allegion’s Schlage MT Readers. This integration allows for expanded access to key government clients.
“As federal agencies are only permitted to procure qualified products and services listed on the GSA APL, we’re happy to be able to offer this integration that provides an easy-to-deploy, interoperable solution for government facilities,” says Terry Collins, director of government sales at Allegion. “The integration is FIPS 201-2 compliant for easy procurement, with a quick-connect design for easy installation, OSDP for efficient software updates and meets the highest testing standards in place.”
Following rigorous government and third-party security vulnerability and interoperability testing for the Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management (FICAM) program, the integrated solution is said to meet the commercial compliance, consistency and alignment requirements for the functional needs of the government ICAM implementer. The Schlage Mullion Reader and Single Gang Reader are now on the APL and have been authorized for use by the federal government.
“Our government clients demand the highest standards, which drives us to continually innovate with leading players like Allegion to offer the very best in access control,” says Derek Greenland, director of federal government solutions at LenelS2.
Allegion says this federally approved integration is part of the next wave in the company’s mission to work with leading providers in the government sector to spearhead smart lock and mobile access adoption, making seamless, all-encompassing security the new standard.
