Allegion US (Allegion plc), a world-renowned provider of security products and solutions, and Gallagher (Gallagher Security), a global security manufacturer, announced that the US government has approved their new electronic access solution.
Schlage AD-302 FIPS 201-2 is integrated with the Gallagher control Center security software platform and is the first electronic lock listed on the General Services Administration (GSA) Approved Product List (APL), expanding access to key government customers.
Schlage AD Series Locks
Schlage AD Series locks are adaptable, allowing upgrades to be performed without removing the lock from the door to ensure a seamless transition to new technology in the future. The durable design replaces multiple pieces of equipment with a single system, which is cost effective and requires less time for installation.
The complete solution combines the electrified lock, the ID reader and the access control sensors
The complete solution combines the electrified lock, the ID reader and the access control sensors (door position switch and tamper switch). The electrified lock provides more visibility and control when opening, allowing real-time communication and allowing centralized locking capabilities, if necessary.
Schlage AD-302 FIPS 201-2 Solution
To further simplify accessibility, control, and compliance, the Schlage AD-302 FIPS 201-2 solution is compatible with Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and Personal Identity Verification Interoperable (PIV-I) credentials, as well as Department of Defense (DoD) Common Access Cards (CAC) credentials and performs certificate validation, at the time of access.
The solution also provides a challenge-response for the CAK certificate, ensuring compliance with Presidential Directive on Homeland Security 12 (HSPD-12) and meets Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201-2).
