Schlage offers smartphone app for support

App to deliver 'how to' Information directly to users smartphones


CARMEL, IN – August 18, 2011 – Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of Schlage contactless smart credentials and readers, announced today that it now offers a smartphone app that supports customers, integrators, dealers and installers at the jobsite. The smartphone app provides access to Schlage "How-To" videos from YouTube, Install and User Guides and datasheets for the Schlage AD-Series and CO-Series locking systems. Customers can even call the Customer Care Center directly from the app. The free applications are available for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones.

"Instead of trying to find the right person to call or becoming frustrated with searching, users of these apps can get the information they need on the Schlage AD-Series and CO-Series locking systems directly from their smartphones," explains Raj Venkat, vice president, marketing for Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. "Having these apps available on their iPhone, iPad or Android will help them work more flexibly, independently and efficiently."

The app is available for free by visiting the App Store or Android Market and searching for "Schlage." With the app, users can then download the information needed, whether how to change the lock handing, upgrade a standalone, offline AD-Series locking system into a wireless networked lock or how to migrate a credential reader from proximity to a smart card.

Only just announced to its channel partners, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies is already averaging over 25 downloads a day with installs from 13 different countries on five continents.
