CARMEL, IND. (October 3, 2017) – Allegion™, a leading security products and solutions provider, has moved readers and credentials to its Schlage® portfolio – giving customers a single, unified source for access control solutions.
Customers who use Schlage readers and credentials, which were formerly aptiQ® and XceedID® , can expect the same great products, part numbers, compatibility and customer service. The only change is that these products now carry the Schlage name.
“From mechanical locks and keys to electronic locks, readers and credentials, Schlage can now meet all of your access control needs,” said Jon Mooney, Allegion’s business leader for readers, credentials and biometrics.
While Allegion has discontinued the aptiQ and XceedID brand names, current installations will not be affected. Newly branded Schlage products will work with and alongside aptiQ and XceedID products. Compatibility and support will continue as normal, but customers should expect to see future products, training materials and other resources with the Schlage logo.
Schlage already had a comprehensive portfolio of mechanical and electronic locking solutions. Incorporating readers into its access control offering provides additional resources to fit the needs and budgets of any facility. And Schlage is the trusted name for keys and key systems, so including electronic credentials completes that portfolio as well.
“Our goal is to help customers deliver the most secure, convenient and efficient solution — with the simplicity of using a single brand instead of three,” said Mooney. “This should make solutions easier to understand, sell and service for our channels. Customers order Schlage credentials to use with Schlage readers or Schlage locks. It’s just like it’s done on the mechanical side."
