Dublin, Ireland, March 13, 2013 – Allegion PLC, a leading global provider of security products and solutions, today announced that, in Booth 20031 at the ISC West Exposition, attendees will see how Allegion and members of the aptiQ Alliance Program have come together to create an ecosystem of applications that support aptiQ smart card technology. The Alliance consists of global companies that are using an open architecture smart card technology which extends the use of an access control card or near field communications (NFC)-enabled smart phone credential to an increasing number of applications.
