New NDE Locks Feature an Interior Push Button (IPB) to Easily Lock Classroom Doors from the Inside

Runnemede, NJ (Apr. 21, 2020) – Sielox LLC has further expanded the integration of its leading access control and emergency notification solutions with Allegion US to include the new enhanced Schlage® NDE wireless lock featuring an Interior Push Button (IPB) which can easily lock a classroom door from the inside. Sielox is the first to complete the integration to include this new generation of Schlage NDE wireless locks, providing schools with enhanced security and greater control in emergency situations.

“The new Schlage NDE wireless lock with interior push button locking capability provides a fast and easy way to immediately secure a classroom door from the inside in the event of an emergency situation,” said Karen Evans, CEO and President at Sielox. “This new integration further capitalizes on the inherent benefits wireless and WiFi locks provide for advanced networked access control systems.”

Designed to meet the pressing demand for expansive school security nationwide, the new Schlage NDE mobile enabled wireless lock benefits schools in a variety of ways including:

  • New Interior Push Button (IPB): Expands the way the lock operates to include storeroom, office and privacy functions. It allows students and faculty inside a classroom to simply lock the door with a push of a button, restricting access only to privileged card holders or first responders
  • Advanced encryption and communication security: Provided at lock and as part of the larger system
  • Ease of installation: Fits mechanical Schlage ND door prep with minor modifications for new DPS (Door Position Switch)
  • Same price, with major upgrade: The list price is the same as the legacy NDE lock, while offering upgraded features including IPB

“Allegion consistently looks for ways to deliver innovation and continuous improvement for end users and integrators, so we’re excited to expand integrations with Sielox and bring this to market,” said Mark Casey, director of commercial electronic sales at Allegion. “Schlage NDE mobile enabled wireless locks are ideal for schools that want an affordable, interoperable solution that offers advanced access control from the inside-out, for added protection during crises, when advanced security measures are needed.”

Prior to this latest collaboration with Allegion, Sielox was first-to-market integration with networked Schlage® locks and Von Duprin® devices providing Over Network Reprogramming (ONR) firmware updates via Sielox’s popular 1700 Controller. Sielox also previously integrated its flagship Pinnacle Access Control Platform and Schlage NDE wireless cylindrical and LE wireless mortise locks to provide remote control and management of doors using a facility’s existing WiFi infrastructure, dramatically reducing installation costs.
