AD-400/401 Electronic Locks

AD-400 and the FIPS-201-1 compliant -401 locks feature upgradeable credential reader modules and real-time integration with most access control systems as a comprehensive security solution.

AD Series locks were designed to be adaptable, allowing upgrades to be made to new technologies without taking the lock off the door. They integrate into popular electronic access control systems from Software Alliance members to deliver a comprehensive EAC solution.

Both AD-400 and AD-401 are available in cylindrical, mortise, mortise deadbolt and exit trim chassis options. They feature built-in credential reader and access control sensors for simplified installation. The AD-400 enables a wide range of credential options including PIN, magnetic stripe, proximity (125 kHz) and Smart (13.56 MHz) credentials; card + PIN readers are available for extra security.

AD-400 and AD-401 locks communicate by 900 MHz wireless technology to the PIM400, operating independently of the IT network. For real-time connectivity and lockdown, the PIM400 is wired to the access control panel (ACP) either by Wiegand or RS-485. AD-400 wireless locks can work in the same access control system as other wireless devices including Schlage NDE, LE, and the WRI400. Features and capabilities will vary by system.

Features & Benefits


  • Electronics bring more visibility and control to the opening
