Verkada Now Supports Schlage NDE, LE Wireless Locks
Verkada’s new integration with Schlage is said to make it easier to secure more doors and transition to a Cloud-managed system.
SAN MATEO, Calif. — Verkada, a provider of Cloud-managed enterprise building security, announces a new integration with Schlage electronic locks from Allegion to expand access control deeper into buildings.
By integrating with the Schlage NDE and LE Series, organizations can add wireless locks to doors that would have previously been cost-prohibitive due to wiring, according to the announcement. Additionally, they can add security to low-traffic and unwired doors without being limited by cable range or the number of doors per controller.
Enabling Lockdown With Schlage AD Series
Authorized administrators can initiate a lockdown from any mobile device from the Verkada Pass app, or web-based browser via the Cloud-based Command platform. With the Schlage AD Series, this capability can be extended across classrooms, staff rooms and offices.
“By bringing more doors into Verkada‘s integrated platform, we can respond faster and give first responders the access they need to keep our students safe in an emergency,” says Meredith Essalat, Head of School at Mission Dolores Academy, “I can initiate a lockdown from my phone or computer, share a video feed or floor plan with police, and create safe zones within the school where we can monitor the incident as it is happening.”
From the same Cloud-based physical security platform, live videos and floor plans can be shared with response teams to provide ‘eyes on the ground’ as emergencies unfold, the announcement states. Door access during a lockdown can also be restricted to only certain personnel — such as first responders — to prevent unauthorized entry.
“We are excited to have Verkada supporting the Schlage AD and NDE/LE Series wireless lock portfolio as their first integration in the intelligent lock product space. We look forward to working collaboratively to address customer needs to provide a safe and secure work environment,” says Tom Welham, PACS Business Leader at Allegion.
