I have to admit, the products coming out of Schlage USA are looking very enticing as wireless access control options, particularly for indoor use. I wonder what external door options there are or whether we will just be using standard mag locks with wall readers, or readers with e-latches, or readers and Trimec V-bolts / v-locks (ES8000). I need to learn more about the Schlage range, must admit. But the form factors are nice and coming from a reliable US company such as Schlage, this should be a good product to offer commercial customers. And what about near field? i.e. NFC options for the LE Series? Or Bluetooth?
The company that launches a viable Bluetooth product that is cloud based and offers commercial grade management options for users will have a ready market. The race is on! Can Allegion beat Salto or Assa in this field? Time will tell.
“Allegion, a global provider of security products and solutions, announced it will showcase its latest innovations, including the new Schlage® LE wireless lock, during ISC West 2017, between 5-7 April in Las Vegas.
The Schlage LE wireless mortise lock with ENGAGE™ technology is easy to install, connect, manage and use. It was developed for facilities that want to upgrade to electronic credentials for improved security and efficiency – making the LE lock ideal for interior and perimeter office doors, resident entries, common area doors and sensitive storage spaces with a mortise door prep.
The LE lock is the latest addition to Schlage’s wireless portfolio, which also includes Schlage Control™ deadbolts and NDE cylindrical locks. Designed to bring electronic access control deeper into the building, these wireless solutions enhance user experience from installation and beyond. Schlage’s wireless locks are among the products being featured this year.

“The Schlage wireless family opens the door to electronic access control beyond the perimeter of a building by making it easier than ever to upgrade traditionally mechanical doors,” said Brad Aikin, Allegion electronics portfolio leader at Allegion. “As technology continues to evolve in the physical and digital worlds, so does Allegion. Our goal is to enhance end users’ overall experiences with every solution we help deliver.”
