New local software for CLIQ master key systems For its proven CLIQ master key systems from the IKON brand used all over the world, ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH is now launching a new management software on the market. Access authorisations can be organised conveniently and reliably with the locally installed CLIQ Local Manager. In order to make the management of its mechatronic and electronic CLIQ® locking solutions even simpler, ASSA ABLOY is replacing its previous CLIQ® manager software with a completely new version – the CLIQ® Local Manager. The user-friendly programme is installed locally on the PC and is therefore optimal for smaller and medium-sized companies with just one fixed site. Via the intuitive software, access authorisations and time plans for keys, doors and users can be controlled easily and reliably. The authorisations are transferred to the CLIQ® keys either immediately or with a time delay on a local desktop programming device. Event logs show the processes in the locking system clearly. The flat menu structure supports intuitive use and navigation. A new search function offers quick results for people, keys and cylinders during the data search. Improved security Thanks to the future-oriented configuration, the system offers even better protection from unauthorised access. The two-factor authentication via a programming key and a customisable PIN code offers additional security during system login and when using the software. The CLIQ® Local Manager is designed to comply with GDPR in order to guarantee the maximum possible protection for personal information. The new software can be used for all CLIQ® systems, i.e. eCLIQ, VERSO®CLIQ and +CLIQ, and can also be used for multiple CLIQ® master key systems. It can be integrated easily in common computer systems. For an individually tailored software support, customers can book tiered service levels with their CLIQ® retail partner. Parallel to the new management software, ASSA ABLOY will still be offering the established, Internet-based CLIQ® Web Manager Software. It enables the locking system management to be accessed via the Internet, i.e. while on the move. The CLIQ® Web Manager is therefore ideal for managing very large master key systems and systems distributed over several locations.
