Allegion Integrates Keri Systems' Software With Schlage Locks
Allegion says that its latest version of the Keri Systems' software now supports Schlage locks in no-tour mode. No-tour mode allows for the altering of access to a lock without having to visit it.
The supported locks, which include Schlage Control, NDE and LE, are said to be well-suited for multifamily property managers looking to retrofit their existing properties with electronic access control on individual apartment spaces.
Allegion says this provides more security, eliminates unnecessary expenses around managing traditional keys and offers an enhanced tenant experience with ID card or phone access. It also makes it an option to consider for common areas within the building such as meeting rooms, recreational areas and laundry rooms.
"Allegion strives to offer solutions that keep people safe and give businesses peace of mind," says Robert Gaulden, Allegion project-based business leader, electronic access control. "Schlage offers a complete multifamily solution, and having Keri Systems come on board with their easy-to-use software is a win for us and our customers."
The new capability of the Keri software makes it well-suited for managing all aspects of a multifamily property, from exterior doors and parking gates to resident doors and common areas.
"With the added no-tour capabilities, we now offer the ability to manage Schlage locks in RS-485, Gateway and Wi-Fi Direct modes," says Vince Deiuliis, director of marketing and national accounts for Keri. "We pride ourselves on being able to show our dedicated support to this powerful and flexible locking solution."
