PIN validation makes CLIQ ® Connect even more secure

  • 22 May 2019

ASSA ABLOY has added another layer of security to the CLIQ ® Connect programmable key access control solution with PIN validation.

Thanks to this addition, when issuing or amending key access rights, in a couple of clicks, administrators can now set a PIN which key-holders must enter to update their key. Without entering the PIN, users will not be able to revalidate or update their key to open a new lock, therefore boosting security against unauthorised access.

The CLIQ ® Connect app pairs a user’s programmable key, via an encrypted cloud connection, with the CLIQ ® Web Manager. To change a key-holder’s access rights, a security manager accesses their CLIQ ® software and updates it. A key-holder makes a secure Bluetooth connection between their CLIQ ® Connect key and the app to instantly update access permissions or revalidate.

“CLIQ ® Connect combines convenience and high security,” explains Stephan Schulz, CLIQ Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “A key-holder no longer revalidates their key or updates its access rights in person by returning to base or finding the nearest programming device. All they need is a smartphone, the CLIQ ® Connect app and a secure Bluetooth connection. And now, with the option for administrators to PIN protect any key permissions update or revalidation, it’s even more secure.”

CLIQ ® Connect’s secure solution for mobile access management has been recognized several times by industry awards. CLIQ ® Connect was a winner at the Detektor International Awards, recognizing outstanding innovation in security alarms, access control and CCTV; won the Gold Trophy at France’s APS Awards; and was awarded Protector & Wik’s Golden Protector 2018 for access control.

“CLIQ ® Connect is simple and agile for even the largest organisation. It saves you time. And because your mobile workers drive fewer miles collecting and returning physical keys, it’s also a more sustainable access control solution,” Stephan concludes.
