LOCKEN picks up ESB Group Innovation Award

ESB Telecoms Ltd, a subsidiary of Ireland’s largest electricity company, put forward LOCKEN’s Access System for an award in the category ‘Application of Technology’ at the recent annual Innovation Recognition Awards.

The award, which celebrates the innovation of LOCKEN’s digital access control solution and recognises the recent integration of its security solution into ESB Telecoms Ltd ’s Extranet IT system, saw the company’s Health and Safety team rewarded for its ability to use the solution to improve operational effectiveness across the business.

The implementation of the LOCKEN solution, using the Cyberlock technology, which covers the provision of 1,000 access systems for Global Systems for Mobile Communications (GSM) base stations at 450 locations throughout the country, followed a pilot programme that allowed ESB Telecoms Ltd to ascertain the benefits of this access control solution. Subsequently, ESB Telecoms Ltd decided to protect Points of Presence (PoP) cabins to comply with Health and Safety regulations.

Rory McGowan, managing director of ESB Telecoms Ltd, commented: “We were very pleased with the team’s pioneering and creative spirit to leverage flexibility within the access solution to deliver further improvements for our business.”

Nick Dooley, managing director of LOCKEN UK, explained: “We’re honoured that our solution was chosen for this award. There were 500 original applicants reduced to ten shortlisted entries on the night of the awards ceremony, so it really is a fine achievement for both ourselves and the ESB Telecoms Ltd Health and Safety team.”

Peter Gregg, the Health and Safety manager at ESB Telecoms, stated: “Our remote facilities need to be accessible to more than 1,700 contractors, most of whom are external third parties. Being able to rely on LOCKEN’s advanced access control solution has enabled us to manage activity at remote sites and ensure thousands of access requests are granted to contracted personnel each month, ultimately resulting in increased operational efficiency for ESB Telecoms Ltd.”

LOCKEN works across UK and Europe to secure large-scale exhibition venues for end users

LOCKEN – the developer of cable-free access control whose solution concentrates on power, intelligence and communication in one smart key – is presently working with a number of UK and European convention centres to secure their large exhibition venues.

Exhibition and conference centres employ hundreds of staff and see thousands of visitors pass through their doors each day that an event is running. On that basis, it’s vital that their infrastructure, assets, staff, service providers and customers operate in a safe and secure environment, all backed-up by a robust access control solution.

With clients including The NEC in Birmingham, The Convention Centre, Dublin and Marseille’s Chanot Exhibition and Convention Centre, LOCKEN provides a secure and traceable access control management solution based on CyberLock technology.

“The LOCKEN system enables us to provide bespoke access for our clients as and when it’s required,” asserted Philip Hartigan, head of security at The Convention Centre in Dublin. “It allows us to monitor and restrict access to specific areas, meaning that we’ve been able to re-allocate security officers who were previously responsible for opening restricted access areas, signing out keys and monitoring key registers.”

Nick Dooley, managing director of LOCKEN UK, added: “Ensuring the safety of people and the security of goods while providing maximum productivity is our priority. Monitoring and controlling restricted access is paramount, with data capture and analysis providing vital information in the event of a security breach.”

Dooley continued: “We’ve secured over one million access points worldwide and take great pride in offering a robust and reliable access control solution to an industry that’s vulnerable to risks such as terrorism, vandalism and theft which are associated with larger public venue.”

LOCKEN launches intelligent CyberKey Vault 20S technology solution for safe key storage

LOCKEN – the developer of cable-free access control technology whose solution concentrates on power, intelligence and communication in one smart key – has announced the addition of the CyberKey Vault 20S to its range.

Based on Cyberlock technology, the Vault 20S brings additional value to LOCKEN’s solution in those environments where it’s more appropriate or advantageous to keep the keys in a centralised location.

The vault prevents keys from ever leaving the premises and, with an integrated on-board computer, it’s designed to secure up to 20 rechargeable digital keys at any one time.

The keys retained in the Vault 20S remain un-programmed until an authorised user presents an approved PIN or RFID device to the vault. The vault’s internal server will then programme a key with the specified permissions. Once the end user has returned the key to the cabinet, it charges the key’s battery and downloads the audit trail from its memory.

It allows business managers to issue, programme and protect their smart keys simultaneously and to assign access rights in real-time. The solution will result in improved smart key management, heightened security and increased efficiencies.”
