ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control will be exhibiting its latest security and integrated access control technology at SiX 2019. The show – which is organised by Pro-Activ Publications (publisher of Risk Xtra, PSI and Benchmark as well as The Paper) and runs at EventCity in Manchester from 5-6 November – is the UK’s only trade event dedicated to serving the ever-changing needs of security integrators and installers.

ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control will be exhibiting on Stand B8 alongside Abloy and HKC, highlighting the efficiency and ease-of-installation of its innovative access control solutions.

Among the products on show will be the eCLIQ, CLIQ Go, SMARTair and Aperio solutions, as well as the company’s electro-mechanical offering.

eCLIQ: the key to electronic locking

eCLIQ is a fully electronic key management system that delivers flexible and secure master key management to businesses, in turn solving key control concerns. The compact eCLIQ locking cylinder offers the highest levels of security. Featuring the widest range of different cylinder types, the system’s designed for every kind of use, from company entrance gates to securing alarm systems, lifts, doors and cabinets.

eCLIQ also helps solve the issue of lost keys, with end users able to update access authorisations when required. It’s easy to install, too, with no drilling required, and also offers a maintenance-free solution for up to 200,000 cycles.

As such, eCLIQ is “the only master key system a building will ever need”.

CLIQ Go: access control at your fingertips

CLIQ Go is a fully electronic locking system based on the highly successful and efficient CLIQ technology. The CLIQ Go app provides a high level of security and data protection, enabling control over building security from a mobile device. The flexibility of key management on offer here is said to be “unrivalled” when it comes to master keying for building security.

CLIQ Go provides both security installers and business owners alike with the capability to manage access control on the go. This end solution is achieved via a quick installation that requires no waiting at the door. Operators can also easily revoke access rights via the CLIQ Go app, thereby minimising the risk of lost keys.

SMARTair: easy access control

SMARTair is a wireless online or offline fully scaleable access control system that keeps end users in touch with who enters the building and where and when they do so, ensuring complete control of site security.

Traka UK launches V Touch solution for limited space key management

Traka UK has launched a new intelligent key cabinet specifically designed to offer controlled access management for critical keys at locations where space is limited and only a few credentials need to be managed.

The company has unveiled its new V Touch as a secure unit with a seven-inch touch display to accommodate up to five sets of keys.

Powered by Traka’s exclusive electronics system, the V Touch presents full audit control capability such that administrators know exactly what keys have been taken, and by whom, together with the ability to instantly access usage reports.

TrakaVTouch

Traka’s V Touch is recommended as part of a networked solution using Traka’s specialist Traka Web software to enable central control of critical keys.

Steve Bumphrey, UK sales director at Traka, stated: “We’ve created the V Touch as an intelligent key management system to help ensure keys and credentials can be securely managed, even where space is at an absolute premium. This could include on board ships or for remote locations requiring maintenance. We hope the launch of the V Touch, which comes equipped with all the traditional management benefits you would expect from a Traka Touch system, demonstrates our commitment to listening and continually evolving our product range to meet both new and existing customer requirements.”

With further features including a solid locking door, built-in power supply and full battery back-up in the event of a power failure, Traka’s V Touch is available with card reader or biometric access options to enable customer preference and accommodation of individual site requirements.

Traka provides intelligent key and equipment management control to better protect essential assets resulting in improved efficiency, reduced downtime, less damage, fewer losses, lower operating costs and significantly less administration, allied with transparency and greater accountability and responsibility.

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 LOCKEN Vault

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.

Nick Dooley, managing director of LOCKEN UK, explained: “This new multi-functional device meets the needs of many of our existing and potential single- and multi-site customers. 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.”
