Allegion Wireless Lock Portfolio Integrations
Integrated: Sielox Access Control With Allegion Wireless Locks
Sielox access control and crisis management products are integrated with, and compatible with, wireless locks from Allegion, including models in the Schlage and Von Duprin brands.
Sielox has been a certified member of the Allegion Alliance Network since 2012. This technology alliance allows Sielox to further expand the reach and value of access control and management with the added value of real-time door control and offline Wi-Fi® based lock solutions.
The Sielox access control integration using our 1700 Controller and Pinnacle® Access Control Software encompasses three Allegion wireless lock communications technologies encompassing five lock product lines, as summarized below. This range of choices lets systems integrators quickly and cost-effectively install a wireless lock solution suitable for each application, while giving greater management control to system administrators and providing additional user benefits.
Product Line Integration: Schlage AD Series 900 MHz Wireless Locks
Beginning in 2012 Sielox integrated Sielox 1700 controllers and Pinnacle Access Control software to manage Allegion PIM devices via RS485 cable for real time command and lockdown of AD300 wired and AD400 wireless locks using “900 MHz wireless” communications.
AD Series premium locks were designed to be adaptable, allowing upgrades to be made to new technologies without taking the lock off the door. Available in cylindrical, mortise, mortise deadbolt and exit trim chassis options, they feature a wide range of credential options including PIN. AD-400 locks communicate by 900 MHz wireless technology to the PIM400, operating independently of the IT network.
Users can control thirteen AD 300 wired locks using a single 1700 controller.
Product Line Integration: Schlage NDE and LE Series 2.4 GHz Bluetooth (BLE) Locks
Sielox 1700 controllers and Pinnacle Access Control software are integrated to manage Allegion ENGAGE Gateways via RS485 cable for real time command and lockdownof Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks that use low energy 2.4 GHz Bluetooth (BLE) communications.
The NDE lock design packages the cylindrical lock, credential reader, and access control sensors together into a small footprint that is both easy to install and affordable. The LE design packages the mortise lock, credential reader, and access control sensors together into a small footprint that is both elegant and affordable. The LE mortise chassis can be ordered with an interior push button or deadbolt for specific applications. Both NDE and LE locks include both proximity (125 kHz) and/or Smart (13.56 MHz) credentials which feature a much higher level of security and versatility.
Product Line Integration: Von Duprin RU and RM Series 2.4 GHz Bluetooth (BLE) Locks
Sielox 1700 controllers and Pinnacle Access Control software are integrated to manage Allegion ENGAGE Gateways via RS485 cable for real time command and lockdownof Von Duprin RU RM wireless locks that use low energy 2.4 GHz Bluetooth (BLE) communications.
Von Duprin created the Remote Undogging (RU) and Remote Monitoring (RM) options as a battery powered wireless solution that enables remote undogging and door status monitoring. These options enhance perimeter and interior security by providing a remote electronic override of mechanical dogging for emergency facility lockdown. The RM option is a sensor only configuration for exit only or fire rated doors that require monitoring. It provides system visibility to request to exit (RX), latch bolt monitor (LX) and door position switch (DPS) status signals. Both options are modular kits that can be added to any existing Von Duprin 98/99 or 33A/35A Series device.
WiFi Integration: Schlage WiFi Locks
Announced in 2019, Pinnacle Schlage WiFi software integration manages Schlage NDE and LE wireless locks directly for scheduled communications only using existing WiFi network communications. System managers can send and receive updates directly to locks without a control panel providing users with convenience and dependable security and with a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
With this integration, users can control an unlimited number of Allegion Schlage WiFi locks, manage cardholder records, create access groups, define holiday schedules, and more. Schlage lock fields are also reported in Pinnacle v.10.4 providing users with a single dashboard to monitor lock status.
A Powerful Integrated Portfolio of Wireless Lock Solutions
It is important to note that Sielox integrated site deployments using Allegion wired and wireless locks may have two hardwired doors and a mix of up to 32 wireless locks per 1700 controller. The wireless locks in the system can be a mixture of AD series locks using 900 MHz communications and NDE, LE and RU RM series locks using 2.4 GHz BLE. This capability enables system designers and installers to apply the best mix of technology and high value functionality to meet the specific needs for any installation.
Additional Benefits of Sielox Integrated Wireless Lock Systems
A powerful Sielox advantage is the first-to-market Sielox 1700 controller feature using RS485 that enables Allegion ONR (Over Network Reprograming) remote firmware updates. New Allegion firmware is pushed via the 1700 Controller via RS485 cable to remotely update locks, gateways and PIMs over the network saving time and money for integrators and end users alike. Downloading firmware in a timely manner for locks (Schlage AD-300/400, NDE, LE, Von Duprin RU-RM), Engage BLE gateways and PIMs happens without system disruption and all devices will still be fully functional.
Another system function available only from Sielox, Lock Toggle is a unique selectable convenience feature for Allegion AD, NDE and LE wireless locks using 900 MHz and BLE communications. Lock Toggle permits credentialed individuals to use a single card to change the status of the lock without contacting the access control system operator. Users simply present their credential and toggle the lock twice to either lock or unlock the door. The lock will continue to follow any scheduled change in status. Deployments using WiFi communications require a separate Lock Toggle credential.
