CLIQ - ASSA ABLOY

ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the premier global provider of door opening solutions, has launched its new CLIQ Connect app, a simple and cost-effective way for facility managers to control the security permissions of a mobile workforce from their smartphone.

Facility managers can update, amend, revoke or renew access rights remotely from the CLIQ Web Manager software and the latest Bluetooth technology paired with a mobile phone. Mobile workers then simply need to open the CLIQ Connect App for the updated access permissions to be instantly transferred to their programmable CLIQ key via Bluetooth.

Secure key management solution

A lost key is no longer a threat, as facility managers can simply remove the key’s access rights from the CLIQ Web Manager software

This technology provides flexible access control and a secure key management solution for facility managers. Access rights can be tailored to meet individual requirements, so permissions are only granted for the specific time and date needed. Furthermore, a lost key is no longer a threat, as facility managers can simply remove the key’s access rights from the CLIQ Web Manager software, at anytime and from anywhere.

Operations are streamlined too, with a keyholder no longer having to update access rights physically in person, carry additional updating devices, or even return to base to retrieve the key needed. For additional peace of mind, audit trails can also be generated on demand, and data transfer between the system and app is encrypted.

ASSA ABLOY CLIQ Connect App

CLIQ Connect is currently available on the eCLIQ platform from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, which features a pioneering and 128-bit AES encryption. Developed to offer high security and resistance to electronic attacks, eCLIQ’s proven technology and advanced microelectronics ensure quick and secure communication between lock and key.

CLIQ Connect will be rolled out to the organisation’s acclaimed ASSA CLIQ Remote system later this year.

With no extra hardware required, to get started all mobile workers need is a smartphone and to download the CLIQ Connect App.

Facility security & access solution

The new CLIQ Connect App uses the latest technology to ensure facility managers are in control of their security at all times

Simon Wilson, National Sales Manager for ASSA CLIQ Remote at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, explains: “Facility managers and their mobile workforce are short on time, and want solutions that are easy to implement and help simplify workflows. CLIQ Connect has been designed to meet these needs. It has never been so easy for access rights to be issued to remote workers, nor update these so quickly.”

Site security is improved too, with lost keys no longer posing a threat. The technology cuts the time that might be typically wasted on administrating access rights, plus saves money that would have otherwise been spent on programming devices and key management systems.”

Ultimately, the new CLIQ Connect App uses the latest technology to ensure facility managers are in control of their security at all times.”

CLIQ combines mechanical and electronic locking systems for enhanced physical security

A mechatronic locking system like CLIQ combines high-end mechanical and electronic protection. A...
