Assa Abloy’s Cliq Go: Access Control for Small Businesses
Assa Abloy’s Cliq Go key-operated wireless access control system is built specifically for security in small and medium-sized businesses. The system offers a new way for locksmiths and business managers to work together for mutual benefit.
Cliq Go is Assa Abloy’s access control system designed for small and medium-sized businesses – SMBs - based on wireless locking cylinders and padlocks and programmable, battery-powered keys. After a time- and cost-efficient, wire-free installation, a business director or admin assistant can manage their locks electronically from a smartphone, PC or tablet. The cylinders, padlocks and keys fit most standard types of interior and exterior opening. Any Cliq lock is powered by a battery inside every programmable key, so it works without mains power.
The Cliq Go app manages a company’s entire locking system. With a few taps and swipes of a screen managers can issue, revoke or amend the access permissions of any lock or key-holder. If a new employee needs front door or server room access, a manager can make the permissions changes and send the amended rights to the system, even if they are away from the office. If someone loses their Cliq key, managers can blacklist it immediately and order any other user key to carry out system programming at the cylinder.
A new service for locksmiths
For locksmiths looking to future-proof their expertise, Cliq Go is a smart way to support SMB clients. To keep setup simple, there’s no software installation at the client end.
A single mechanical coding for all systems enables locksmiths to retain keys and cylinders in stock. The locksmith simply programs and configures a new key for the SMB using the Cliq Express software. Partnering with SMB clients in this way offers resellers an additional revenue stream: issuing, programming and dispatching new keys on demand. Because a small business probably does not employ specialist staff, a locksmith becomes a trusted security partner.
In awarding Cliq Go a GIT Security Award for Access Control, Intruder Alarm & Perimeter Protection, the prize jury stressed its facility to “carry out day-to-day access control management from anywhere.
For locksmiths, just one mechanical coding for all systems enables them to keep keys and cylinders on stock, and to program and configure on demand. It is perfect for installers and resellers who want to offer quicker and more efficient services to their small- to medium-sized clients.”
