update keys wirelessly with a smartphone

Abloy UK has launched its innovative new CLIQ® Connect technology that enables PROTEC2 CLIQ® keys to be activated through a smartphone. CLIQ® Connect is set to revolutionise the flexibility, time-saving and ease of use of remote access control by bringing it into the mobile era.

Remote management capabilities

PROTEC2 CLIQ® allows for the remote management of disparate or large electronic master-keyed sites at any time, from anywhere in the world. The system provides comprehensive audit trails on locks and padlocks and the ability to invalidate lost or stolen keys, thereby assuring secure key management at all times.

Increased connectivity

The latest addition to the system is the CLIQ® Connect online key, which takes advantage of the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology, enabling users to update keys wirelessly with a smartphone.

The connectivity provides a real time audit trail on non-wired products such as padlocks and cam locks, and access rights can be granted to the user ‘on-site’. Users will see a return on their investment from the combined benefits of time saved, increased efficiency and the substantially improved level of security.

PROTEC2 CLIQ® potential applications

Abloy’s PROTEC2 CLIQ® system is ideally suited to organisations that have a number of engineers and contractors visiting remote sites, and offers a solution for many different sectors including defence, utilities, telecoms, transport, education and healthcare.

Pip Courcoux, Sales and Product Manager, CLIQ® Systems for Abloy UK, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing the CLIQ® Connect system to the UK, as it’s a complete game-changer and will transform remote key management as we know it.

Building on the significant success of the original PROTEC2 CLIQ® solution, the CLIQ® Connect key is extremely user-friendly, as it operates just like an ordinary key and utilises a familiar smartphone interface.

Keys have a battery life of up to 2 years even if used daily, with very high durability and IP-57 rating. They are also 100 per cent compatible with all existing PROTEC2 CLIQ® systems without the need for new cylinders, making it possible for current customers to upgrade their system with ease.
