Allegion Announces Integration of Schlage Intelligent Hardware, BadgePass ONE Platform

Security solutions provider Allegion US recently announced the integration of Schlage intelligent hardware with the BadgePass ONE platform, according to a news release. The result is a subscription software package that includes all the hardware and software required to both issue secure ID credentials and manage door access control. One of Allegion’s first Reader Control model integrations, it offers door access privilege solutions that are both efficient and cost-effective, the news release reports.

“As access control moves to the cloud, the teams wanted to make it more cost-effective for customers,” said Jeff Koziol, business development manager–PACS partners, with Allegion. “The Schlage NDEB and LEB intelligent wireless locks are easy to install and seamlessly communicate with the software via Wi-Fi. The Reader Controller devices round out the solution by enabling real-time updates and offering an option for doors where wireless locks are not a fit. Through this system, customers can now provision a reader device and assign access privileges to cardholders in just minutes, while greatly reducing implementation costs.”

The BadgePass ONE platform pairs with NDEB, LEB, and RC hardware. Its key features include a BadgePass Hosted solution offering easy deployment of hardware options, with no need for wiring, installation, or control panels across the facility. Its mobile access feature offers software that can manage cardholder privileges and print badges through the iOS App Store and Windows store; users can enter cardholder data and photos from a phone or tablet and print the badge at the facility. The BadgePass flexible subscription model offers monthly or yearly payment options instead of an upfront lump sum, allowing customers with smaller budgets to take advantage of the solution.

“We chose to partner with Allegion because their hardware options help reduce common barriers to installation, including complex and costly wiring,” said Derek Gibbs, EVP of Product Development at BadgePass. “We started with credential issuance, giving customers the ability to enroll cardholder data and print ID badges right from their phone. We’re excited to be at the forefront and now embed access control capabilities to the system. ID badging and secure door access go hand-in-hand, and customers today demand a more comprehensive, integrated experience from their cards.”
