ASSA ABLOY CLIQ® intelligent key-based access control now integrated with Genetec Security Center

  • 6 Apr 2021

Trusted CLIQ wireless locking from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions now works seamlessly within Security Center from Genetec.

This new integration helps Security Center users to broaden their access control capability, administer locking more efficiently, and better protect all kinds of premises from increasingly sophisticated and diverse threats.

Thomas Åkerberg, Business Unit Director for CLIQ at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA, comments: “Genetec is a global industry leader in IP-based security solutions.

“Great partnerships can create best-in-class solutions. Now both companies are bringing key-based access control capabilities to Genetec customers around the globe.”



Any organisation using Genetec Security Center 5.7 can now deploy CLIQ key-operated wireless locks and padlocks at their premises.

The integration via CLIQ Web Manager software extends the access control possibilities of Security Center, enabling programming of CLIQ’s intelligent, battery powered keys with fine-grained access rules from a single, familiar interface.

As a result, organisations extend access control and solve their lost key problem. And because CLIQ is a wire-free solution, installation is simple.  

Staff and other site users suffer no inconvenience. They can keep their original credentials, while administrators may assign rules for cardholders granting additional access via CLIQ devices. Security managers customise access schedules on site or remotely.

CLIQ’s advanced key management capability mitigates organisations against security threats from lost keys. Battery-powered CLIQ keys are reprogrammable, meaning disablement by the system can happen as soon as they go missing.

CLIQ saves the expense of physically rekeying locks, too, since ‘rekeying’ is done electronically. A Security Center system administrator can quickly amend an existing key’s access permissions or issue a new programmable CLIQ key.

The CLIQ cylinder range extends beyond door locks to many other applications, with wireless cylinders for cabinets, cupboards, lifts, machines and gates, plus hardened steel padlocks for outdoor use.

Installation of these programmable locking cylinders and padlocks is wireless and simple. Management within Security Center is seamless.

Extending influence

Jean Philippe Deby, Business Development Director EMEA at Genetec, says: “Intelligent keys give customers the ability to expand their access control and management beyond the physical network while maintaining the Genetec unified experience and auditing capabilities.

“With the growing importance of management and protection of our critical infrastructure, support for intelligent keys. Locks like CLIQ gives Genetec users the ability to extend their influence over infrastructure right to the edge.”
