For Immediate Release
Off-Line locks now available with electronic keys and Cloud-based audit trails
Lancaster, Pennsylvania – April 7, 2015 — Securitech, a leading US-based producer of security door hardware, and ECKey, the market leader in Smartphone Access Control Systems and Bluetooth Readers, today announced a complete line of VIZpin®-enabled, stand-alone electronic door locks.
Planned for Q2 of 2015, 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 Access-Control-as-a-Service (ACaaS) product enables the user to remotely send, revoke and monitor VIZpin electronic keys through a Smartphone app or text message. The Securitech Control Trim solution, powered by VIZpin, eliminates 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.
“Answering the call for innovative solutions to meet our customers’ needs is the Securitech mission and we are excited to work with the dynamic and forward thinking ECKey team”, said Mark Berger, President and Chief Product Officer of Securitech Group, Inc.
“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, “and we are proud to be working with another US-based manufacturer who shares our commitment to quality and customer service.”
Securitech and ECKey will be previewing their products April 15-17 in Las Vegas, at the ISC West Expo and also their Wounded Warrior Fund Raising event co-sponsored by Veracity. To register for this event, visit www.ECKey.com/events.
