Cliq: Assa Abloy’s Key Access Control System
For easier and more efficient access control, Assa Abloy’s Cliq wireless solution Cliq uses a single battery-powered key to open all doors in a building. The solution aims to increase security by pre-defining individual access permissions for every employee or visitor.
With a Cliq wireless access control system, a battery inside each key powers all electromechanical Cliq cylinders and padlocks. Authorised key-holders carry a single battery-powered key programmed with only their personal access permissions. Keeping the solution’s power source independent of the locks and padlocks makes Cliq management and operation more efficient than other access control solutions.
The keys have a typical battery life of five years, changing the battery requires no expert or an excessive amount of time. Because the Cliq devices are wireless and battery-powered, users do not need any cabling around the door.
Assa Abloy offers a variety of software options to manage the system. A Cliq Local Manager can administer the system via a local software installation; the Cliq Web Manager runs securely in the cloud. There is also a Software as a Service solution option available with around-the-clock support, maintenance and incident reporting as standard, and Service Level Agreements delivering data redundancy and up to 99.5% availability.
Ecliq, the fully electronic version of Cliq
A fully electronic addition to the Cliq portfolio, the Ecliq wireless access system, is built around secure microelectronics with AES encryption. Robust and durable, Ecliq electronic cylinders are available for doors, cabinets, lifts, alarm boxes, machines and entrance gates. An integrated lubricant reservoir ensures they remain maintenance-free for up to 200,000 cycles.
“This evolution of our award-winning Cliq technology is already protecting businesses and public services across Europe,” says Stephan Schulz, Cliq Product Manager at Assa Abloy Opening Solutions EMEA. “Organizations in a range of sectors, and with differing building types — from Italy’s Creval Bank to the University Hospital Frankfurt — have learned that Ecliq provides the control and flexibility their premises need.”
