Locks Allow for Standalone Operation or Network Control
The 210 Schlage Computer-Managed (CM) locks by Schlage Electronic Security of Forestville, Conn., an Ingersoll Rand (IR) Security Technologies’ company, is a standalone lock solution that has the added benefit of network management. Programming of the CM locks can be accomplished using software contained on a laptop or PDA. The same is typically used to program the access trim and offline hardwired controllers that manage the electric door strikes and electromagnetic locks.
According to IR, new users, access points and access privileges can be set in seconds and users can select proximity, magnetic stripe, PIN or i-Button credentials individually or in combination. The CM lock also provides an audit trail for download to a laptop or PDA.
