Framingham, Mass. – June 13, 2017 – S2 Security, the leader in IP-based access control, video management and mobile security management systems, and Allegion™, a leading global security products and solutions provider, have announced S2 NetBox series product support for Schlage® NDE wireless locks. S2 NetBox access control and event monitoring system users can now easily manage and control the locks using Allegion’s ENGAGE™ Gateway and Bluetooth® technology.
“We’re excited to offer support for and sell the popular Schlage NDE wireless locks,” said Mike Riegelman, vice president of business development at S2 Security. “NDE locksets, in particular, offer real-time lockdown capability, which is an advancement in wireless solutions.”
The integration allows users to manage access control and event monitoring, such as real-time lockdowns, directly from S2 NetBox without requiring third-party hardware. The Schlage NDE combines the lock, credential reader, door position sensor and request to exit (REX) into a single unit. Ideal for interior doors, NDE wireless locks are simple to retrofit into standard doors without drilling additional holes. And, these locks connect directly to a smartphone for quick set up using the ENGAGE mobile app.
“The integration with S2 NetBox brings new opportunities to both companies and, most importantly, to our customers,” said Brad Aikin, electronics portfolio leader at Allegion. “The access control system seamlessly works with Schlage NDE locks to provide advanced security capabilities at every opening. Plus, customers enjoy the many conveniences of using credentials throughout the building.”
