AD-250 Electronic Lock

The AD-250 enables and unlimited number of users with up to 10,000 audits. Rights are stored on the magnetic stripe credential and carried to the door by user to streamline new enrollments. As part of the adaptable AD Series, this offline lock is upgradeable to a networked solution to meet future needs.

The AD-250 is a unique offline lock solution in which the credential, not the lock, carries access rights on a magnetic stripe card. This allows dynamic rights management on the card without reprogramming each lock in the facility, yet the lock still maintains an audit trail of events at the door. This makes it a smart and economical solution for campus environments with a large number of users and offline openings. The AD-250 is easily upgradable to a networked wireless lock if requirements change in the future.

The handheld device (HHD), when used in conjunction with your access control software, allows you to update lock programming and retrieve audits. Lock and unlock schedules, as well as time zones and holidays can be programmed through software provider solution for added security and convenience.

AD Series electronic locks from Schlage are designed to be modular and provide more options to choose from, more functionality in the lock and more compatibility with existing systems. Its patent-pending modular design allows the lock to be customized to fit the needs of an application now, and can change to meet future needs without removing it from the door.
