SARGENT AND GREENLEAF ANNOUNCES AXISBLU LOCK FOR SAFES



Combining Bluetooth technology with S&G’s proven lock components for the first safe lock without a keypad

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky – (September 5, 2018) – Sargent and Greenleaf (S&G), a division of STANLEY Security that manufactures high-quality mechanical and electronic locks, announces its newest locking solution that provides safe security with access gained through a mobile app, eliminating the need for a keypad.  Called AxisBlu™, the lock combines the latest Bluetooth® technology with S&G’s proven lock components for a truly secure safe lock option.

Just launched, AxisBlu uses an easy-to-install, unobtrusive medallion that connects via Bluetooth to an app on the user’s mobile device to remotely gain access to the designated safe anywhere within a 30-foot radius.  With multiple layers of authentication, and the ability to pair up to five mobile devices, AxisBlu provides a convenient and secure solution for safe operation.  Also, AxisBlu is available with the time-tested keypad, allowing for access manually or via the app.

“With AxisBlu, our customers have the best of both convenience and security,” stated Keith Deaton, COO of Sargent and Greenleaf.  “We’ve combined the latest Bluetooth technology with our proven lock body to create a new option for safe security – void of a keypad – by accessing your safe via your mobile app.”

AxisBlu’s main features include:

  • The latest Bluetooth upgrades that bring the technology up to S&G’s stringent security standards. New functionality and multiple levels of authentication in mobile devices make the Bluetooth connectivity a reliable, fully secure method of access.
  • Proven security of S&G’s Titan motorized locking device with firmware enhancements for even greater protection.
  • Unparallel convenience with the ability to pair up to five mobile devices along with 10 users, allowing immediate Bluetooth access via the AxisBlu app.

AxisBlu Kits are available in three complete packages to accommodate all that is needed to install or retrofit AxisBlu to the safe.  The options for purchase include a Medallion Kit and two Keypad Kits.  Installation is easy, leveraging multiple components for added security and matching standard safe lock footprints and machining.

AxisBlu Medallion Kit for Immediate Access

With the Medallion Kit, the sleek, modern design positions the lock keypad on the user’s mobile device instead of the safe front, providing immediate access.  The Bluetooth module has been engineered to provide access through the safe door by using the existing spindle hole for wide-range antenna placement and operates at a range of up to 30 feet.  Firmware enhancements allow S&G’s Titan Lock to function securely with a mobile device using Bluetooth technology. The medallion uses an internal battery box, which is not required with the keypad kits.

Keypad Kits for Wider Range of Operators

There are two Keypad Kits available with varied components.  The first is a one-battery keypad with a black platinum finish accessed via the AxisBlu app or manually, allowing controlled access for a wider range of operators.  The QuickMount keypad, which is also Bluetooth compatible, allows for easier and quicker retrofit or installation.

AxisBlu is designed for safe manufacturers, businesses, distributors and consumers.  “We hope AxisBlu will help the end user, for example, safely secure their firearms with ease from their mobile device,” said Deaton.

The free AxisBlu app is compatible with iPhone and Android phones that must support Bluetooth 4.2 versions.  For more information about AxisBlu visit: www.sargentandgreenleaf.com or call (800) 826-7652.
