Schlage Express software provides an easy-to-use, convenient electronic access management system. Use it to manage offline locks like AD-200, CO-200 and CO-220 as well as some controllers and legacy locks.

Schlage Express software is recommended for smaller facilities with fewer than 100 doors where real-time security management is not required. It allows simple management of new and existing user rights with reporting capability to show audit trails retrieved, access privileges granted, and time functions established by either user or door. 

Transfer of information between the program and lock is done using the Schlage Utility Software (SUS) mobile app on a compatible Android device and cable at the door.
