NAPCO’s Alarm Lock Trilogy Access Control Locks Win Annual Maintenance Innovation Award for Safety

NAPCO Security Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce that its Alarm Lock Trilogy® Series Wireless Access Control Locks have been recognized by facility maintenance decision-makers as the award-winning locking product for the Maintenance Innovation Award in Safety. This 2022 Annual Award, just announced, is said to “recognize innovations and excellence in products, that contribute to the efficient and profitable operation and management of commercial buildings and institutions in the United States”. For over a decade, Alarm Lock’s popular Trilogy Locks have been #1 in their class, setting the benchmark when it comes to electronic access control locks, and its US-Based parent company, NAPCO, has continued to expand the line and integrate it with its other security technologies, offering a superior solution for every type of door and opening, inside and out, including schools, corporations, chain stores, airports and more.

Napco’s winning Trilogy Series Locks easily retrofit standard door locks and accept digital PIN codes or Prox ID card credentials for a few, to thousands of access control users.  The advanced wireless lock line features extra-long-life battery-operated standalone digital, prox, and classroom lock-down keyfob locks, with HID or iClass Prox readers and/or integrated wireless networking, in second-generation Trilogy Networx® wireless access locks, which add server control and optional real-time access control platform operation (using Napco’s Continental CA4K, or Lenel Systems). Trilogy Networx models offer building managers and occupants the added safety of providing global lockdown in seconds, in an emergency, activated from a server, any lock or lock group, or personal keyfobs.  BHMA Grade 1 durable, and proven low maintenance, Trilogy Networx Locks in cylindrical and mortise models, also reduce labor requirements, providing automatic lock/unlock or programming updates by schedule, eliminating door-to-door guard tour operations and audit trail queries.  Alarm Lock’s Trilogy Access Locks can be neatly installed in less than an hour, allowing facility managers and institutional and retail locksmiths to add wireless access control to one door at a time, with consistent operation, to varying door types (wood, metal, glass). The locks offer a multi-level access hierarchy, of master, management, and user codes, as well as one-time service codes, to readily customize to any business or building’s needs.

Most recently NAPCO, integrated the Trilogy Locks with new smart device App control with convenient mobile credentials, as part of its AirAccess® Cell/Cloud-Based Access Control System, which itself won multiple awards, offering easy cell-based wireless networking and central monitoring station reporting, speeding deployment, and eliminating IT Dept/Network burdens.

NAPCO offers intro classes and professional trainings online and in the field and supports the product with 24mos warranty.  For more information or to contact Napco’s Alarm Lock Team  visit or email

It eliminates setup hassles, IT delays/interactions, ISP changes, etc, and can use your choice of any Wiegand readers with wireless 1-Door panels, or top-rated wireless access locks inside or out, or both. And it offers twice the RMR-earning potential, because dealers can not only host /manage their accounts’ systems remotely at the dealer’s own server, but also provide them with cellular central station monitoring and SMS cellphone alerts, as well.

Also new from Napco is E-Access, a Software-Free embedded access system that frees dealers from costs, time, and trouble spent loading access control software onsite and doing perpetual updates to it and associated drivers or hardware down the road. That’s because Napco E-Access 1-,2-, 4-door modular panels are self-contained, and use any web-browser to sign-in and manage the secure Linux-based system. Both systems, sold at Napco distributors, are super-scalable from a few doors and users to hundreds, and they offer easy smart mobile Apps with free built-in credentials and command-control and lock-down security for authorized users.
