New Sielox 1700 Controller Intelligent Featured at ASIS 2016

Offers Expanded Lockdown and Advanced Authentication

Orlando, FL – Recognizing market demand for upgradeable technology solutions, Sielox is showcasing its continued innovation of the Sielox 1700 Controller at ASIS 2016 (booth #2561). The ‘no end of life’ design is backward and forward compatible which protects customers’ existing and future investment in access control technology. Along with on-board Ethernet, all logic is built into its fieldprogrammable processor, allowing for fast design changes to accommodate new features and enable easy remote updates. The latest version of the Sielox 1700 Controller has been upgraded to include several new features along with additional integrations with various Allegion AD (integrated in 2012) and NDE locks (first in market to integrate in 2015).

“Users and Resellers are looking for systems that can be easily installed and upgraded, saving valuable time and costs,” said Karen Evans, CEO and President, Sielox. “Our 1700 Controller meets this need with streamlined configuration, installation, integration and operation features. With each new upgrade and design enhancement, users gain a more complete tool to help ensure the safety and security of their facility.”

The latest enhancements to the Pinnacle 1700 Controller include two key advanced security features for Allegion Schlage wireless locks: support for the two-man rule which requires two valid and different cards to be presented within six seconds of each other before the door is unlocked and Card + Pin two factor authentication. Additionally the Schlage AD and NDE wireless locks series can now be linked and unlinked remotely by a trained technician reducing the labor requirements by one person.

“Sielox also has developed increased support and functionality for Allegion Engage NDE locks, Allegion AD 300/400 locks, Allegion AD mortise deadbolt and Allegion AD lock privacy mode,” said Evans. “These new features for the Schlage wireless locks create an even stronger business case of installation and maintenance savings for perimeter and interior deployment of wireless locks.”

In addition to its compatibility with Allegion locking systems, the Sielox 1700 Controller also supports functionality for aptiQ magnetic stripe readers, models MTMS15 and MTMSK15.

Further recent Lockdown feature enhancements include New Privileged Access Levels to expand the current privilege code capabilities, restricting access to all cardholders in a lockdown and block situation except to first responders and authorized personnel that are assigned to one of the 16 privileged access levels.

The 1700 controller now features additional home page information for firmware versions, file information for the flash programming file located on the SD memory card based upon actual file size, and improved network and RS-485 communications.

Made in the USA, the 1700 is FIPS 201 compliant for federal applications.
