by Brianna Crandall — July 9, 2018 — Allegion, a global security products and solutions provider, has completed, through one of its subsidiaries, the acquisition of ISONAS, which offers “pure IP access control.” Allegion announced its intent to purchase ISONAS in June.
Boulder, Colorado-based ISONAS has edge-computing technology that provides innovative access control solutions for non-residential markets. ISONAS intelligent devices — such as its popular integrated reader-controllers — utilize power over ethernet, making them easy to install and cost effective, as they utilize existing customer infrastructures.
Tim Eckersley, Allegion senior vice president and president of the Americas region, remarked:
By bringing ISONAS into the Allegion family, we’re adding a technology leader with solutions that align well with Allegion’s channel initiatives and add new access technologies to our portfolio. As Allegion continues to drive electronic adoption across our industry, we will also continue to offer more IP wall-based choices that add value for customers.
Since its founding in 2000, ISONAS has accelerated growth, established strong customer relationships, and built a network of certified integrators and committed distributors. Allegion’s global presence, electronics expertise and channel relationships are expected to further expand the reach of ISONAS technology and increase its capacity for growth.
Following the closing of the transaction, ISONAS is expected to operate within Allegion’s Americas region.
Allegion is a global pioneer in safety and security, with leading brands like CISA, Interflex, LCN, Schlage, SimonsVoss and Von Duprin. Focusing on security around the door and adjacent areas, Allegion produces a range of solutions for homes, businesses, schools and other institutions.
