Allegion NDE Wireless Lock Profile

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 29, 2016

While wireless locks are one of the hottest areas of access control, two of its biggest challenges are high cost and limited integration with mainstream access control platforms.

Allegion's newest wifi lock line, Schalge NDE has addressed those two issues, with significantly lower pricing and expanding mainstream support.

As a result, many users are considering networked access controls on doors previously too costly to fit. However, despite the inexpensive price and growing support, Allegion's NDE has some big weaknesses.

Inside, we examine NDE, who supports it, and its strengths and weaknesses.
