Product Launches

There have been several exciting announcements regarding our Hager powered by Salto HS4 and Electronic Solutions product lines this week! To make sure you haven’t missed any here is a short recap:

HS4 Electronic Access Control

KS – Keys as a Service  WebpageBrochure | Press Release

An HS4 electronic access control platform for mobile and remote administrators. KS is a cloud-based access control platform that is managed from a smartphone, tablet, or PC, and accessed from a remote software engine. Always up-to-date with the latest features via instant updates and add-ons, the KS platform is easily maintained and managed. Infinite in size, it ensures real-time monitoring and immediate resolutions of any issues with a clear audit trail. These benefits and features make the KS platform perfect for retail, rental properties, and the ever more popular shared workspace markets.

 

HG03 GEO Electronic Cylinder  Webpage

The HG03 GEO electronic cylinder works with Hager’s 3710 Interconnected Single Locking Entry and 3215 Series Deadlock. The conversion kit allows a seamless application to be wire-free and networked into the SVN and RFnet platforms. Offered in four finishes to match almost every decor, this product is perfect for multi-family and assisted living projects and is available with a 20 minute UL rating.

 

HS4 AElement Fusion  Webpage 

The AElement Fusion is an electronic lock with a sleek reader accentuated by an interactive light ring that illuminates when access credentials are presented. The electronic lock allows the integration of all physical security needs in an energy efficient and easy to manage system. Architects will appreciate that the battery pack and electrical components are hidden within the door. Minimalistic in design, the AElement Fusion integrates with any decor style.  Available with a 45 minute UL rating (wood doors only) and compatible with DIN standard and ANSI mortise locks.

 

Electronic Solutions

Pedestrian Presence Sensors  Webpage

Pedestrian sensors are programmed to prevent the door from opening if it senses anything within the door path that was not mapped. Extremely useful to prevent possible harm to pedestrians in an ADA door opening with a low energy power operator. Projects such as assisted living facilities, daycare facilities, healthcare facilities, education institutions, multi-family, commercial structures, and government buildings would benefit from these new products. Two different sensors were launched this week: the Bodyguard mounts to the frame and scans the swing path map prior to the door opening; and the Super Scan which mounts to the door and scans the swing path while the door is in motion.

For information on these and any of our other door hardware products please contact our Customer Service Department at 314-633-2002 or 800-255-3590.

Friday Fun

At Hager, we are passionate about door hardware. It’s one of the reasons we added locks, exit devices, and door controls to our product line several years ago.  Last year we partnered with Salto Systems to create our Hager powered by Salto electronic access control line. Our goal is to provide our customers with the products, service, knowledge, and partnership to elevate the value they bring to the channel.

Yet, we can’t forget our history so today we are going to throw it back a few decades with a light-hearted post.

These cartoons were created from the “inspired pens of America’s most famous cartoonists” – Tom Henderson, Virgil Partch, Lichty, Irwin Caplan, and Larry Reynolds in 1952 for our “Everything Hinges on Hager” campaign.  Let us know if any resonate with you!

Monday was Labor Day which marked the official end of summer, but there is still time to get out and enjoy the sun (make sure to lather up with sunscreen!).

Fuzzy Credentials

A sales representative was in a customer’s office recently with our 34K Series Standalone lock. The customer was reviewing the brochure when he noted one of the additional features was a “fuzzy credential entry available” and asked what it was.

It’s a good question and the answer may help dispell the image that just popped into your head from hearing the term fuzzy credential.

DHI ConNextions 2018 – Booth 319

Next week, several members of the Hager Family and team members will head to Baltimore for the annual DHI ConNextions show.

We will also have demonstrations with our HS4 Electronic Access Control products including the newest communication platform BLUEnet. We are especially excited by BLUEnet’s ability to provide a real-time (within 4 seconds) lock communication, keeping people safer in an active shooter situation.

 

If you’d like to attend the show but haven’t purchased a pass yet, we have complimentary VIP Exhibit Hall Passes available. Just click on this link and in the Promo Code box type hagevip.
