Next-gen Wireless Mortise Lock

Front-of-House/Security, EMEA, Technology, Supplier News

Allegion UK has launched its innovative wireless mortise lock solution in the UK.

 

The Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE™ technology has been developed specifically to extend effective electronic access control throughout the interior of a building, in addition to exterior doors, providing a single, secure locking device for the whole of a building.

 

Ideal for multiple commercial settings, as well as higher education institutions, senior living homes and medical facilities, the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE™ technology is easy to install, connect and manage.

 

Trevor Ball, Allegion business development manager for the UK and Ireland, says positive feedback since the launch of the product in the United States in 2017 has helped to accelerate the product’s introduction in Britain:

 

"Sales of the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE™ technology have been performing well overseas and we have also been experiencing a growing demand in the UK for wireless technology locks, so we were determined to introduce it here as soon as we could.

 

"By using the Schlage wireless locks, this gives you the opportunity to bring electronic access control deeper inside the building, which opens up the potential for a single lock type to be used to secure the inside as well as the outside. The benefits of this compared to traditional methods which have tended to focus only on the security of the building exterior are enourmous.

 

"As well as being easy and quick to install, the Schlage is also cost effective and low maintenance, with up to two years’ battery life. We are sure that the combination of this superior product with the ease of maintenance will make it an attractive proposition for facilities managers and specifiers."

 

Schlage LE wireless locks combine the lock, credential reader, door-position sensor and request-to-exit switch in a single unit. Crucially, there are no wires to run to the lock and no additional hardware is required.

 

Built-in Bluetooth® enables the LE wireless locks to connect directly to smart phones and tablets. These locks are available in nine finishes, from aged bronze to satin chrome with antimicrobial coating, as well as a host of lever styles.

 

For advanced capabilities including networked real-time communication with the ENGAGE™ Gateway, LE wireless locks are managed with software supplied by one of the company's physical access control software alliance members.
