Allegion UK, a leading specialist in fire safety and security hardware, has launched a new generation of wireless mortise lock in the UK. The Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology has been developed specifically to extend effective electronic access control throughout the interior of a building, in addition to exterior doors, providing a single, secure locking device for the whole of a building.
Ideal for multiple commercial settings, as well as higher education institutions, senior living homes and medical facilities, the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology is easy to install, connect and manage. Trevor Ball, Allegion business development manager UK and Ireland, said the positive feedback and sales it has received in the USA since its launch in 2017 has helped to accelerate the product’s introduction to the UK.
Schlage LE wireless locks combine the lock, credential reader, door-position sensor and request-to-exit switch in a single unit. Crucially, there are no wires to run to the lock and no additional hardware is required. Built-in Bluetooth enables the LE wireless locks to connect directly to smart phones and tablets. These locks are available in nine finishes, from aged bronze to satin chrome with antimicrobial coating, as well as a host of lever styles.
For advanced capabilities including networked real-time communication with the ENGAGE Gateway, LE wireless locks are managed with software from one of their physical access control software alliance members.
