Building Access Control

BadgePass One Integrated with Schlage Intelligent Locks and Readers for Cloud-Based Access Control

Security solutions and products company Allegion US has integrated the BadgePass One platform with Schlage Intelligent Locks and Readers, the company said. It will offer a subscription service to save costs for users that includes all hardware and software needed to issue ID badges and control access privileges in large facilities like K–12 schools.

“The Schlage NDEB and LEB intelligent wireless locks are easy to install and seamlessly communicate with the software via WiFi,” said Jeff Koziol, business development manager – PACS partners at Allegion.

“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.”

BadgePass has worked with K–12 schools nationwide to provide various security solutions, the company said. Benefits to schools of the new integration include:

  • Easy to use apps for badge production for employees, students, volunteers and more;

  • Customized, secure card designs for all types of cardholders;

  • Quick badge production process by capturing photos on a tablet or phone, eliminating the need for onsite PCs and long lines of students waiting to have pictures taken at registration or after the start of the school year;

  • Queued print jobs, allowing the badging office to print cards on their schedule;

  • Local printing at each school or centralized print;

  • Lower IT burden as no software, server, or printer drivers are needed onsite;

  • Cost-effective system subscription, including all software, hardware, supplies and service;

  • Automated monthly or annual payment options.

“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.” He added that access control capabilities are now embedded in the system.

Allegion has supported successful integrations in two other BadgePass product lines: BadgePass Access Manager and TotalCard, according to a release.
