Allegion, Openpath Announce Cloud-to-Cloud Integration With Schlage NDE, LE Mobile-Enabled Wireless Locks
Openpath says the integration allows organizations to expand their security coverage to include spaces throughout a building where installing and maintaining wired access control was previously cost-prohibitive.
CULVER CITY, Calif. — Openpath, a provider of touchless access control and workplace safety automation, announces a new Cloud-to-Cloud integration with Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks from Allegion U.S.
This new integration provides a greater selection of cost-effective security solutions across an organization’s entire deployment and makes Openpath one of the only physical access control providers in the commercial space to natively support a Bluetooth credential with Schlage locks, according to the company.
The integration is said to be easily configured with a mobile device and doesn’t require additional wiring or Openpath hardware.
“When it comes to the frictionless workplace of the future, it’s clear that smart, scalable technology solutions like Openpath will play an essential role in helping businesses and commercial property owners adapt to the new world of work,” said Jeff Koziol, PACS business development manager, at Allegion. “We are excited to integrate with Openpath’s mobile security platform to create more value for our customers with less overhead cost, best-in-class features and an unparalleled user experience.”
Leveraging Allegion’s ENGAGE technology, Openpath’s integration with Schlage NDE and LE mobile-enabled wireless locks allow organizations to expand their security coverage to include spaces throughout a building where installing and maintaining wired access control was previously cost-prohibitive, such as interior low-traffic spaces, non-wired common areas, storage
closets, conference rooms and more.
Openpath says this is particularly important for large operations with sensitive spaces, such as education and healthcare facilities, where it is necessary to ensure security across virtually every square foot of buildings and campuses without disrupting the day-to-day flow of workers, employees and visitors. Users can unlock and lock the Schlage wireless locks via Openpath’s mobile credentials, key cards, fobs and remote capabilities.
Security teams will be able to view Openpath and Schlage reporting and management logs through a single control panel in the Openpath platform, which can be managed remotely. Authorized users can also activate lockdown or unlock Schlage wireless locks remotely from the Openpath app or control center.
With buildings transitioning to more flexible schedules and a greatly reduced population on-site, the interior doors become more important to secure. This IP Gateway system allows users to easily add access to those doors, as well as manage and track it all remotely, from a centralized platform using a single credential and without added cost, according to the company. In addition, to eliminate unnecessary infrastructure, the use of a panel is not required.
“As the tenants return to commercial buildings and offices, there is no shortage of challenges and demands for new commercial building environments that prioritize safety, offer cutting-edge technology and hybrid-schedule flexibility,” said James Segil, president & co-founder of Openpath. “We are proud to work with Allegion and its premier brand Schlage, to help change office landscapes for the better, solving for the needs of today and tomorrow.”
