In a world where many electronic access systems offer greater convenience and flexibility than mechanical keys, what can really make the difference? Instead of being tied to mains electricity, what if you could carry the power with you?

With a CLIQ wireless access control system, a battery inside each key powers all your electromechanical CLIQ cylinders and padlocks. Authorised key-holders carry a single battery-powered key programmed with only their pre-defined access permissions. Keeping the solution’s power source independent of the locks and padlocks makes CLIQ management and operation more efficient.

Keys have a typical battery life of 5 years. When it is time to change the battery, anyone can do it. No expert needed, and no need to visit all your CLIQ locks to reprogram or check their power. With CLIQ, all the power you need is in your key.

CLIQ locks have other advantages, too. Because CLIQ devices are wireless and battery-powered, you do not need cabling around the door. There is no need for any invasive electrical wiring when you install CLIQ key access control.

And thanks to CLIQ’s menu of software options, you decide how to manage your users’ access rights. CLIQ Local Manager can administer your system via a local software installation; the CLIQ Web Manager runs securely in the cloud. ASSA ABLOY also offers a convenient Software as a Service solution option with round-the-clock support, maintenance and incident reporting as standard, and Service Level Agreements delivering data redundancy and up to 99.5% availability.

eCLIQ, the fully electronic application of CLIQ technology

A fully electronic addition to the CLIQ portfolio, the eCLIQ wireless access system is built around secure microelectronics with AES encryption. Robust and durable, eCLIQ electronic cylinders are available for doors, cabinets, lifts, alarm boxes, machines and entrance gates. An integrated lubricant reservoir ensures they remain maintenance-free for up to 200,000 cycles.

“This evolution of our award-winning CLIQ technology is already protecting businesses and public services across Europe,” says Stephan Schulz, CLIQ product manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “Organizations in a range of sectors, and with differing building types — from Italy’s Creval Bank to University Hospital Frankfurt — have learned that eCLIQ provides the control and flexibility their premises need.”
