Abloy UK has launched the Cliq Remote, which is based on a patented electromechanical locking solution and developed to make key management easier in larger and wide area masterkeying systems.
Suitable for larger master key suites or remote sites, Cliq Remote allows users the commissioning, programming and full administration of security management via user-friendly web based software.
Cliq Remote operates from a key receiving access rights and/or time validations through a wall programming unit or a personal programming unit connected to a mobile phone that can transfer schedules and authorisations for user keys.
Cliq Remote offers a cost-effective extension to existing systems while providing for centralised administration, key management automation and an automated audit trail, with timely reporting on systems statistics.
And due to the use of individually programmable cylinders and keys, Cliq Remote enables complete electronic security management and control, even to grant variable access rights for personnel visiting remote, secure locations.
Says Barry Jenkins, Abloy UK General Sales Manager Market Development:
“Cliq Remote offers previously unattainable functionality for remote access control. Not only is it easy to install and to use, but also keys can be managed remotely across multiple sites for timed access and keys that get lost can easily have their access rights removed without changing cylinders.
“These advantages, together with detailed audit trails and updates available, means there is then less need for person to person contacts for key updates, less administration and less need for software installations. Cliq Remote really does offer the ultimate synergy between the reliability of mechanical keys and cylinders and some of the benefits of access control.”
The software allows additional data to be written to the keys to mostly remove the need to visit each lock individually and upload audit trails automatically.
CLIQ technology is based on highly miniaturised data encryption electronics, which are embedded directly inside the key and the cylinder. The CLIQ key contains a unique electronic ID code that cannot be duplicated, altered or corrupted.
The key is battery powered and serves as the power source for the cylinder system too. The range of locks are suitable for external use, and conform to BS EN 1303, whilst padlocks carry an IP57 water rating.
