Allegion Focuses on Real Estate, Residential and School Access Control During ASIS

The company’s ENGAGE technology, and Schlage Touch and Connect electronic locks are elevating access capabilities and ease of use.

ATLANTA ― Allegion, a leading global provider of access control and other security products and solutions, hosted two events at the ASIS show here to showcase the company’s recent innovations in its electronic security portfolio. The events included a press conference discussing Allegion’s new electronic security offerings and a school security seminar.

At the press conference, Allegion President, Chairman and CEO Dave Petratis provided an overview of the manufacturer’s electronic security solutions across the commercial real estate, campus safety and residential markets. Topics of discussion included ENGAGE technology, which Allegion believes will change the way commercial building owners and tenants think about interior building access by making electronic access control easier and more accessible for the commercial real estate market by making it easier to transition from mechanical keys to electronic credentials. Also discussed was the Keyless Era, a campaign encompassing Schlage’s full Keyless suite of electronic locks for the home, including Schlage Touch and Schlage Connect. Schlage’s electronic locks are designed to free users from the hassles of keys, give them easier access to their home and include options for controlling home security through mobile devices.

The seminar, “Critical Considerations for School Security and Lockdown,” featured Tim Eckersley, Allegion SVP, President Americas, addressing school lockdown solutions as part of a broader discussion about campus safety and security. In recognition of Allegion’s contribution to Safe School Week (Oct. 19-25), the seminar was aimed at helping school administrators and facility managers better understand effective lockdown procedures, leading to better physical security for children and teachers. Eckersley encouraged school security providers, influencers and administrators to be aware of new and untested security and lockdown products that could actually put staff and students at greater risk.
