A new PIN validation option adds another layer of security to ASSA ABLOY’s CLIQ® Connect programmable key access control solution. Now, when issuing or amending key access rights, administrators can set a PIN which key-holders must enter to update their key.
A couple of clicks in the user-friendly CLIQ® Web Manager interface is all it takes to protect new key rights with a unique PIN. Without entering the PIN, users will not be able to revalidate or update their key to open a new lock. This new function further boosts security against unauthorised access to sensitive areas like infrastructure sites, data stores and drug storage rooms.
Encrypted cloud connection
“CLIQ® Connect combines convenience and high security,” explains Stephan Schulz, CLIQ Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “A key-holder no longer revalidates their key or updates its access rights in person by returning to base or finding the nearest programming device. All they need is a smartphone, the CLIQ® Connect app and a secure Bluetooth connection.”

“And now, with the option for administrators to PIN protect any key permissions update or revalidation, it’s even more secure.” The CLIQ® Connect app pairs a user’s programmable key, via an encrypted cloud connection, with the CLIQ® Web Manager. To change a key-holder’s access rights, a security manager accesses their CLIQ® software and updates it. A key-holder makes a secure Bluetooth connection between their CLIQ® Connect key and the app to instantly update access permissions or revalidate.
Mobile access management
CLIQ® Connect’s secure solution for mobile access management has been recognised several times by industry awards. CLIQ® Connect was a winner at the Detektor International Awards, recognising outstanding innovation in security alarms, access control and CCTV; won the Gold Trophy at France’s APS Awards; and was awarded Protector & Wik’s Golden Protector 2018 for access control.
“CLIQ® Connect is simple and agile for even the largest organisation,” adds Stephan Schulz. “It saves you time. And because your mobile workers drive fewer miles collecting and returning physical keys, it’s also a more sustainable access control solution.”
