ICT wireless locks are a native component of your Protege system. No integration, middleware or third-party interface.

All configuration is performed within your existing Protege setup using standard door programming and utilizes existing records for users, credentials, access levels and other access control features. The solution truly is seamless.

Bluetooth® capability enables you to use your smartphone as your access credential for maximum convenience.

With the Protege Mobile App you can unlock the door using a unique access credential that is entered against your user record in the Protege system and authenticated by a secure cloud based server.

Based on the international standard ISO/IEC 14443 Type A, MIFARE DESFire represents the highest levels of physical credential security.

  • Fully compliant with the international standard ISO/IEC 14443 Type A
  • Multi-application memory to store several services on the same card, allowing for many integration possibilities
  • Fast transaction speed
  • High security and fraud protection

Because offline locks are not actively connected to the network, in many systems they are extremely inconvenient to program. In contrast Protege wireless locks can be configured using the tool you already have in your pocket.

With the Protege Config App, you can simply badge your phone at an update reader to pick up the latest configuration, then send the updates to any lock within Bluetooth® range. The app will automatically update the lock firmware as well, saving you time and money.

The mortise lock meets ANSI Grade 1 lock standards and is rated for over 12 million cycles, boasting the following industry-leading construction:

  • Stainless steel deadbolt
  • Stainless steel anti-friction latchbolt
  • Stainless steel deadlatch
  • Stainless steel armor plate
  • Stainless steel stop works
  • Independent single retractor hub
  • A single cam for all locking functions
  • Four compression springs to ensure smooth controlled operation
  • 12 gauge heavy duty alloy steel casing

The Protege Cartridge Mortise Wireless Lock offers the flexibility to create your own configuration. Simply choose your preferred components from the range of available options to compile your perfect combination.
