Partnership with ECKey adds Bluetooth link to popular LEXI and ELECTRA lineups
Anaheim, CA – Securitech, the industry leader for innovative, purpose-driven locking devices, is announcing the availability of VIZpin®-enabled Bluetooth standalone access control in the Control Trim series of electric release door handles. This cost-effective, easy and flexible access control is now available for a wide range of applications, further enhancing the Control Trim’s compatibility with the widest range of access control and keying systems.
The new products feature Bluetooth entry functionality from ECKey, the leader in cloudbased access control and visitor management, letting authorized smartphones be used as temporary or permanent keys. The new products are designed for both retrofit and new installations, and are ideal for replacing card or key access at apartment and campus building entrances, gate entrances, country clubs and marinas, and many similar locations to control access for employees, tenants, visitors, and vendors.
“Answering the call for innovative solutions to meet our customers’ needs is the Securitech mission, and we are excited to be working with ECKey to deliver a locking solution that provides the ideal combination of extreme ease of use and high security,” said Mark Berger, President and Chief Product Officer of Securitech Group, Inc.
Several of Securitech’s most popular electrically released locks will be available in VIZpin-enabled models. Marketed under Securitech’s Control Trim line, the VIZpin technology empowers a line extension of the LEXI exit device electric release trim and ELECTRA mortise, narrow stile and cylindrical locksets.
ECKey’s Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) product enables the user to remotely send, revoke and monitor VIZpin electronic keys through a smartphone app or text message.
The Securitech Control Trim solutions, powered by VIZpin, eliminate most of the expense and administrative burden of traditional card/reader and keypad-based systems. It enables remote administration without the need for panels or complex IT networks, reducing installation costs by as much as 75 percent.
“The VIZpin-enabled Securitech products open up major market segments that were previously unserved by Electronic Access Control,” added Paul Bodell, President and CEO of ECKey. “We are proud to be working with Securitech, another US-based manufacturer, who shares our commitment to quality and customer service.”
