ASSA ABLOY’s CLIQ Go key-operated access management is built to make security easier for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). It also offers a new way for locksmiths and business managers to work together for mutual benefit.
In a typical SMB, the budget will not stretch to a security department or a dedicated facilities manager. Yet security demands and key management hassles are no different to those faced by a multinational.
CLIQ Go helps businesses improve their security and manage access efficiently without stress. The system includes mobile access management from the dedicated CLIQ Go smartphone app.
“We designed CLIQ Go to be fast to install, as well as easy to use and administer,” says Stephan Schulz, CLIQ Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA. “As a company, we have a long heritage in inventing and manufacturing key-based locking systems, both electronic and mechanical. CLIQ Go is another milestone in a long line of ASSA ABLOY innovations.”
Access management made easy
Three basic components make up a CLIQ Go system. Doors and other types of opening are secured by a range of wireless locking cylinders. Site users unlock with a programmable CLIQ key. For convenience, one key carries all their individual access permissions.
Finally, a business director or admin assistant can manage everyone’s access electronically from a PC with desk programmer or on the move, via the dedicated smartphone app.
CLIQ cylinders fit any type of interior or exterior opening. Because each programmable CLIQ locking cylinder is powered by the battery inside every programmable key, it can be quickly deployed without cabling or mains power. An installer simply swaps out the existing cylinder for the CLIQ device – it needs a simple 1 screw change.
The CLIQ Go app manages the locking system from anywhere provides the security admin higher flexibility. If a new employee needs server room access, for example, it is simple to make changes in-app and send new permissions to the system via the cloud. Issuing, revoking or amending a user’s access rights is straightforward.
“CLIQGo transforms your phone into the security team for a powerful access system,” adds Stephan. “Your premises are safer because keyholders only get into specific rooms or at certain times. All unlock events are logged, making incident investigations faster.”
Time-saving for businesses, new revenue for locksmiths
CLIQ Go also gives small businesses the opportunity to draw on the expertise of a local locksmith or security partner — and save even more security management time.
To keep setup simple, there’s no software installation at the client end. A single mechanical coding for all systems helps locksmiths keep keys and cylinders in stock.
To manage a business’ system, the locksmith simply programs and configures a new key using CLIQ Express software. Permissions are sent to the business via the cloud.
“Partnering with SMB clients in this way offers resellers an additional revenue stream: issuing, programming and dispatching new keys on demand,” explains Stephan. “For locksmiths looking to future-proof their expertise, CLIQGo is a smart way to support SMB clients.”
