IoT Impact on Building Design:

When architects design a building, it is about more than just style or aesthetics. It is how those elements add to the user experience—how they are able to move about, function and even enjoy a building. And now, architects have another tool in their arsenal that is allowing them to take the building experience to a whole new level: Internet of Things (IoT).

Winning the security turf war:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, there were two distinct departments: security and IT. The security department installed locks and other hardware, assigned and managed keys, and took responsibility for both the safety of its facilities and the budget that ensured its security. IT operated the enterprise technology, managed its own budget and rarely thought about what was happening in the security department.

The Risks of Digital and Physical Security:

"The Internet of Things (IoT) has become quite a phenomenon, as more and more networked devices are connected to the Internet and generate valuable data for users." (Originally published by ASMag.com)

Allegion Americas Supports Habitat for Humanity with Dedication of Nine New Homes in Mexico:

In September, Allegion initiated a $100,000 contribution to build Habitat homes alongside families in Tijuana and Tecate with a volunteer team made up of 120 employees.

Manufacturing Day 2016: Combatting the Skills Gap:

Allegion is making a proactive effort to share the positive reality of manufacturing careers within its communities. The truth is that there are incredible jobs in manufacturing in a variety of functions, from production and distribution to engineering and environmental health and safety. Many individuals who have made careers in manufacturing at Allegion have worked in a number of these roles, developing a variety of valuable skills and leading very dynamic day-to-day work lives.

Allegion expands its family of brands:

Allegion welcomed Trelock to its family of brands this year.

Happy Third Birthday, Allegion!

As Allegion turned 3 in December, some of our employees reflected on our accomplishments.

Allegion and its brands won several awards, certifications, and distinctions - and we couldn't do it without our employees, customers and partners. We won these awards together - thank you!
