Medeco Wins ASIS 2017 Accolades Competition – Security’s Best Award

“Both cylinders operate independently of one another so access is provided using either the XT electronic key or the X4 mechanical key.”

Medeco Security Locks, a division of ASSA ABLOY N.A., located in Salem, Va., was a winner of the ASIS 2017 Accolades Competition as a Security’s Best Award recipient. The award was presented during the ASIS International 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits on Tuesday, September 26, 2016 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.

The Medeco XT Dual-Tech retrofit cylinder is designed for both accountability and rapid-entry applications. It combines two cylinder technologies—the Medeco XT electronic cylinder and the Medeco X4 mechanical cylinder—in one mortise cylinder housing.


  •     The Medeco XT electronic cylinder provides everyday access and gives the user full control and accountability by leveraging all of the features of Medeco’s powerful XT Web Manager software.
  •     The Medeco X4 mechanical cylinder is ideal for local fire departments because it uses simple and familiar mechanical key technology, allowing rapid entry for inspections or emergency responses.

“Both cylinders operate independently of one another so access is provided using either the XT key or the X4 key,” said Gene Cronin, Medeco XT and Aperio product line manager. “Being able to provide a solution to our customers that allows them to leverage our cutting-edge XT hardware for their accountability needs and still comply with local fire codes is very important to us. The Dual-tech cylinder does just that!”

The Medeco XT Dual-Tech Cylinder uses existing hardware so no hard wiring is required and is a direct retrofit for most mortise lock applications. Product can be ordered either pinned or sub-assembled for the Medeco X4 cylinder and includes two keys.

“There is nothing else out there like XT Dual-Tech and we are honored that it was recognized as a winner of this year’s ASIS Accolades Competition,” added Cronin.
