Avoid a fright at the museum with ASSA ABLOY

  • 12 Oct 2017

ASSA ABLOY EMEA believe museums should all have modern, electronic wireless access control and have produced a checklist that security systems must have.

 

  • Is your system comprehensive, covering all doors and other openings, including basements, storage areas and the roof?
  • Are locks certified for resistance to physical attack (e.g. anti-picking technology)?
  • Can any compromised lock be re-keyed and/or replaced instantly?
  • Is key tracking straightforward — so you always know who exactly has keys or access permissions, and can amend those permissions quickly?
  • Are full audit trails easy to generate, detailing who has gone where, and when?
  • Have you minimised the number of keys in circulation, and only issue them based on need, not convenience or seniority?
  • Can you offer fine-grained levels of access to different site users as required?
  • Are your physical keys protected against unauthorised copying?
  • Is remote unlocking or locking of the main door enabled if there’s an emergency?
  • Are locks and other devices discreet enough to maintain a property’s appearance (castle treasury, country house, historic theatre, church sacristy, and so on)?

ASSA ABLOY recommend its CLIQ® locking system. This combines high-end mechanical and electronic protection, whilst a range of key-operated cylinders maximise physical security.

The technology then adds an extra layer of encrypted, user-friendly electronic security on top.

This system is currently in use at Berlin’s Deutsches Theater, integrating CLIQ®’s cutting-edge microelectronics with a high-quality mechanical cylinder system. Security staff simply program each CLIQ® key with the exact access rights its user needs.

Using straightforward system software, any CLIQ® key can be scheduled to permit entry only at pre-set times.  For example, during public opening times or after hours for cleaning staff. Permission updates are communicated from system to door via CLIQ® programming keys.

In Sweden, Stockholm’s maritime museum Vasamuseet also upgraded an old mechanical system, where staff used to carry heavy keychains with 10 or more keys.

With CLIQ®, facility managers can now amend the access rights of everyone’s single CLIQ® key at any time, even remotely.

The system can also save time and money, with the need for physical key handover obsolete, CLIQ® removes delays caused by logistical bottlenecks. When facility needs change, site users simply update their key with programming devices or via an encrypted Bluetooth connection to their CLIQ® Connect mobile phone app.
