The CBORD Group is helping colleges and universities protect their one-card access control investments by integrating its campus ID card systems with Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies’ new Schlage AD-Series security platform. The modular design of the new AD-Series lets higher education users customize door openings by credential reader, networking, finish and levers without replacing the lock or even taking it off the door.
Additionally, the system is built on an open architecture platform, allowing for seamless integration with CBORD solutions for campus ID systems. By combining these products, CBORD is providing campus administrators with adaptable and scalable security solutions they can tailor to their campuses while being able to improve their one-card solution in the future as needs and industry technologies evolve.
“Components that have been traditionally located around the door are now integrated into the lock itself to yield a smarter solution and more value for the investment,” said Cindy McCall, CBORD’s vice president of marketing. “Few campus administrators can predict their electronic access needs years in the future. This new AD-Series platform allows customers to plan for today and be ready for the future.”
“From classrooms to sports complexes, labs, residence halls, common areas and beyond, the AD-Series was designed with the understanding that no two campuses or their security applications are the same,” said Beverly Vigue, Ingersoll Rand’s vice president for education markets.
