The CLIQ Go key-operated wireless access control system is built to make security easier for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). It also offers a new way for locksmiths and SMB managers to work together for mutual benefit.

When running an SMB, the budget probably won’t stretch to a security department or a dedicated facilities manager. Yet key management hassles faced are no different to those faced by a multinational company.

CLIQ Go wireless access control

CLIQ Go helps manage locks and access from the palm of the user’s hands — on the move

CLIQ Go helps manage locks and access from the palm of the user’s hands — on the move, on the road, and from anywhere in the world. CLIQ Go is the access control system designed for SMBs, based on wireless locking cylinders and padlocks and programmable, battery-powered keys. After time- and cost-efficient, wire-free installation, a business director or admin assistant can manage their locks electronically from a smartphone, PC or tablet.

CLIQ cylinders, padlocks and keys fit most standard types of interior and exterior opening. A CLIQ lock is powered by a battery inside every programmable key, so it works without mains power.

Locking system management

The CLIQ Go app manages the entire locking system. With a few taps and swipes of a screen, users can issue, revoke or amend the access permissions of any lock or key-holder. If a new employee needs front door or server room access, permissions can be changed and the amended rights sent to the system instantly.

If someone loses their CLIQ key, they can blacklist it immediately and order any other user key to carry out system programming at the cylinder. With CLIQ Go, user’s smartphone becomes the security team for a powerful access system.

Single mechanical coding for all systems

For locksmiths looking to future-proof their expertise, CLIQ Go is a smart way to support SMB clients. To keep setup simple, there’s no software installation at the client end. A single mechanical coding for all systems enables locksmiths to retain keys and cylinders in stock.

Partnering with SMB clients in this way offers resellers an additional revenue stream: issuing, programming and dispatching new keys on demand. Because the small business probably does not employ specialist staff, a locksmith becomes a trusted security partner.

CLIQ Go wins GIT Security Award

In awarding CLIQ Go a GIT Security Award for “Access Control, Intruder Alarm & Perimeter Protection”, the prize jury stressed its facility to “carry out day-to-day access control management from anywhere. For locksmiths, just one mechanical coding for all systems enables them to keep keys and cylinders on stock, and to program and configure on demand.

It is perfect for installers and resellers who want to offer quicker and more efficient services to their small- to medium-sized clients,” they concluded.
