Switch to intelligent, electronic locking – without throwing away the keys with ASSA ABLOY

  • 15 Mar 2019

An eCLIQ system from ASSA ABLOY allows a person to manage everyone’s access from anywhere, at any time – electronically, securely and wirelessly.

Based on award-winning CLIQ® access control technology, the eCLIQ system is built around precise locking mechanics and high-end microelectronics.

A battery inside each programmable key powers the wide range of programmable cylinders and padlocks and secures every data transfer.

An eCLIQ system is also convenient, with multiple software options meaning it is possible to manage a users’ access rights in a way that suits an individual best.

Authorised key-holders carry a single, battery-powered key programmed, with only their cleared access permissions.

Low maintenance for technical components you can trust

Robust and durable, eCLIQ cylinders are available for a wide range of doors, cabinets, lifts, alarm boxes, machines and entrance gates.

Looking after eCLIQ components is simple: an integrated lubricant reservoir ensures cylinders remain maintenance-free for up to 200,000 cycles.

eCLIQ keys are durable, compact, and waterproof (IP67). They are easy to reprogram, allowing temporary and time-limited access permissions for every employee or contractor.

AES encryption, rapid processing, and efficient energy management is built into the chip and when a key’s battery runs out, it is easily replaced without tools.

Mechanical and encrypted electronic elements work together to make an eCLIQ installation highly resistant to both physical and electronic attack.

Easy installation — simple, secure management

Managing eCLIQ is straightforward, as it is simple to program keys with easy-to-use eCLIQ Manager software; just choose between a local software installation or the company’s secure web-based software, which manages access rights from anywhere, in the cloud.

Security managers can host the Web Manager software on their own or use ASSA ABLOY’s Software as a Service solution.

Users can also update their own keys with a range of programming devices, including wall-mounted units.

With eCLIQ, missing keys are quickly de-authorised, cutting risks associated with key loss or theft. At any time, facility managers can generate a full audit trail to discover who has accessed which locks.

Unlike other electronic access control systems, eCLIQ uses no mains electricity. The microelectronics inside an eCLIQ lock are powered by a standard battery inside every key.

Energy-efficient and sustainable, battery power also minimises disruption when you switch to eCLIQ. Because there is no cabling around the door, you don’t need to schedule invasive, expensive electrical wiring.

eCLIQ in action

Stephan Schulz, CLIQ® Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY EMEA, commented: “eCLIQ is more durable, more secure and more efficient than conventional locking systems.

“This evolution of our award-winning CLIQ® technology is already protecting businesses and public services across Europe.

“A range of sectors and building types — from banks and hospitals to shops and warehouses — have learned eCLIQ provides the control and flexibility their premises need.”

For an access control overhaul at University Hospital Frankfurt, managers sought a secure locking system for a new building – step forward 1,100 eCLIQ cylinders and keys.

With eCLIQ installed, nurses update access rights every morning for the day ahead. This new workflow reduces security vulnerabilities and keeps everyone safer.

Retail banking combines high security with complex workflows, with staff needing efficient access. Facility managers need the flexibility to design access permissions around individual needs and clearances.

Creval’s bank doors across Italy’s Lombardy region are now locked with more than 30 eCLIQ cylinders, putting managers in total control of entrance security.

Should the unlikelihood occur of a key being misplaced, Creval administrators can simply delete it from the system.

In Germany, eCLIQ locks AMPELMANN GmbH branches and their 2,200 square metre logistics centre, meeting the needs of their decentralised branch organisation.

Its eight Berlin branches are staffed by several permanent employees, whilst external service providers, like cleaners, also need access; eCLIQ provides it – safely, securely and without major key-management workload.
