Allegion, Open Options expand offering of electronic access control solutions
Addison, TX (October 3, 2017) – Allegion, a leading provider of security products and solutions, and Open Options, a global access control solutions company, integrated the Schlage® LE wireless lock with DNA Fusion software to expand their offering of scalable security solutions.
“Open Options is committed to offering the most up-to-date technology available,” said Jonathan Berman, president and general manager of Open Options. “We have a long-standing partnership with Allegion, and the integration of the Schlage LE wireless locks with DNA Fusion offers users another sophisticated option for their security solutions.”
The Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE™ technology is designed to bring electronic access control deeper into a facility. This wireless solution is easy to install, connect, manage and use. The lock, credential reader, door position sensor and request-to-exit switch are combined in one unit to simplify installation and reduce costs. It was developed specifically for facilities that want an easy, cost-effective way to upgrade traditionally mechanical doors to electronic credentials for enhanced security and convenience. The Schlage LE locks are ideal for interior office and suite entries, conference rooms, common area doors, resident units and sensitive storage areas with a mortise door prep.
DNA Fusion, Open Options’ award-winning open architecture access control software, seamlessly integrates with leading security systems like Schlage’s electronic locks, readers and credentials. Developed by experts with years of industry experience, DNA Fusion is designed with valuable customer input to ensure it delivers a user-friendly and open access control platform. Other supporting products — visitor management, photo ID and more — work together to provide a complete security solution.
“What’s great about Open Options’ DNA Fusion software is that it offers a full-scale access control solution that can be tailored to fit each customer’s unique security needs,” said Scott Dennison, leader of Allegion commercial electronic locks and software. “Previous integrations include the Schlage NDE and AD-400 wireless locks as well as the AD-300 hardwired locks, so we are excited to expand the offering to include our latest wireless solution, the Schlage LE.”
