Next Generation Wireless Lock Solution Powered by Allegion’s ENGAGE™ Technology Provides Real-Time Online Access, Management and Audit Reporting
FALLS CHURCH, VA (September 8, 2016) – Kastle Systems, the industry leader in advanced managed security systems and services, announces the availability of Allegion’s Schlage® Control™ Smart Lock and Schlage® NDE Series Wireless Lock solutions for the multifamily market. The integration of the most innovative lock solutions on the market with Kastle’s best-in-class service extends the frictionless experience of security from the property’s perimeter, to common areas, and now to the individual resident unit door via a single database and credential for the entire property. The combined solution represents a technology and installation cost breakthrough for online access control.
Managed remotely using the myKastle portal on any device at any time, the Schlage Control Smart Lock and NDE locks eliminate mechanical keys from the equation. As a result, resident security is elevated, while also saving on service expenses associated with cylinder and key replacements. The move to electronic access control for these doors enables communities and properties to take control of key management, crack down on unauthorized key duplication and issue a single credential to residents for secured access throughout the community. In addition, it further differentiates properties by utilizing the most modern approach to entering secured spaces. There is no cylinder in the Schlage Control Smart Locks to pick or bump resulting in improved security and safety.
Fully integrated with Kastle’s managed services platform, property managers benefit from the online configuration and real-time controls at every access point in the community on a 24/7 basis. By combining the lock hardware and credential reader in one wireless unit, installation and affordability of electronic access control has never been greater and more appealing at the individual residents’ door.
With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) components incorporated within the Schlage Control Smart Lock and NDE solutions the systems are future-ready to enable the next generation of mobile credential access, such as KastlePresence, Kastle’s innovative platform that allows doors to be opened by authorized persons from their smart phone, at individual residences.
“For the first time ever, multifamily properties can extend online electronic access to the resident door – saving them time and money while improving the overall security and experience of the property,” said Mohammad Soleimani, Kastle’s Chief Technology Officer. “These properties will be able to take advantage of the next generation of mobile access, which makes spaces safer, smarter and more convenient.”
Ann Matheis, marketing leader, multifamily at Allegion adds, “Together we are ushering in a new era of unprecedented electronic access control for multifamily property owners and residents. Residents no longer have to worry about a misplaced or stolen key, which means they can have the peace of mind knowing they’re living in a more convenient and secure multifamily property."
As a smart and stylish leader in door hardware, Allegion’s Schlage Control Smart Lock is available in multiple designs and finishes to complement other hardware in the home and enhance the styling of the property. Two styles, the Greenwich and Addison styles, will offer Satin Nickel, Aged Bronze, Satin Chrome and Bright Chrome finish options.
