Allegion Reveals ISONAS-Powered Schlage Reader Controller

The new device combines the power of ISONAS Pure IP access control technology with Schlage’s intelligent hardware and credentials.

CARMEL, Ind. — Allegion U.S. announces the unveiling of its next generation reader controller, the Schlage RC.

This new device combines the power of the Pure IP access control technology pioneered by ISONAS with Schlage’s intelligent hardware and credentials, delivering a comprehensive and cost-effective perimeter solution to customers, according to the company. Allegion acquired ISONAS in 2018.

Allegion says the benefits of having a panel and reader in a single enclosure not only eliminates the need for multiple devices, but creates a simplified architecture with ease-of-installation. Customers now have the power to leverage their existing infrastructure with this scalable and flexible solution.

The Schlage RC reader controller complements the broader Schlage ecosystem, including the Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks, for a complete interior and exterior solution. It is also compatible with Schlage credentials, including 125 kHz proximity, 13.56 MHz smart, 2.4 GHz mobile and NFC.

“We are excited to be able to offer a secure, comprehensive IP/PoE solution to customers that creates a simple install process and reduces overall costs of deploying an access control solution at their facility,” says Mark Casey, director of national electronic sales at Allegion. “And since the new RC is designed to work in the same system as Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks, employees and staff members can also use their electronic credentials on offices, equipment rooms, storage closets and sensitive spaces.”

The Schlage RC reader controller is well-suited for perimeter applications where access control software is used to manage doors across single or multiple sites. It is said to integrate easily with open physical access control software (PACS) systems.

The controller opens the door to real-time access control by connecting directly to the IT network via a single PoE cable, which simplifies and creates a seamless installation, according to the company.

Allegion says by eliminating the need to run separate power to the door, deployment time is significantly reduced. It provides connectivity that is secured using industry standard TLS 1.2 encryption and offers both a cohesive look and advanced feature set. There are three multitechnology reader-controller models available that allow for common mounting options, which include the RC11 mullion mount, RC15 single gang mount and RCK15 (a single gang mount with keypad).
