CLIQ® key-based access control helps keep clean water flowing in France

  • 4 Feb 2019

Mechatronic locking technology from ASSA ABLOY has provided a water utility in France with a single, secure system controlled by powerful, intuitive CLIQ® software.

O des Aravis is responsible for water capture, storage quality, analysis and delivery of around 700,000 cubic metres annually to homes and businesses in the Aravis Mountains region of France.

PROTEC2 CLIQ® key-based access control with programmable, battery-powered keys now secures 30 opening points across their premises.

These robust locking devices are suited to protecting high-security openings, including a potentially dangerous room with high-tension electrical cabling and equipment. They are already deployed at critical infrastructure sites across the continent.

The mechatronic CLIQ® system enables the utility’s facility managers to control, modify and trace every important access. They know who goes where, and when. They are aware of activity affecting all critical doors; with it even impossible to leave one unlocked.

Because CLIQ® is a flexible, key-based system, O des Aravis can also retain some mechanical locks at the site, operated by the same secure keys and with the same PROTEC2 high-security disc cylinders.

CLIQ® software makes it simple and intuitive for O des Aravis to manage their entire locking system.

Laurent Schutz, Water and Sanitation Process Manager, commented: “The programming software platform is very simple to use. We can easily grant or forbid access rights to any user.”

The CLIQ® Web Manager software is built to help companies like O des Aravis manage complex workflows.

System administrators can program, amend or delete keys remotely. It is straightforward to generate time-stamped audit trails for any lock or key, to track access in detail and the Web Manager can generate attendance reports for staff and contractors.

Despite all these features, the CLIQ® Web Manager requires minimal IT investment; it runs in the cloud and is accessed via an encrypted connection to a standard web browser.

At O des Aravis, comprehensive audit trails for any lock or key are available on demand. These also sync automatically when a user key is updated or revalidated.

If a key is lost, a security manager can deactivate it instantly with a couple of clicks, guaranteeing buildings and clean water supplies are not put at risk.

In a world of diverse threats to our critical infrastructure, ASSA ABLOY have ensured that for Aravis Mountains residents, winter skiers and summer hikers, the refreshing alpine waters are safely locked down – courtesy of CLIQ® wireless access control.
