Connect Key

CLIQ Connect keys utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy technology in the key, allowing the key to be remotely updated via the CLIQ Connect mobile application. Updating the key via the CLIQ Connect app is comparable to updating the key in a Wall Programming Device. So your mobile phone, the CLIQ Connect app and a CLIQ Connect key replaces your standard CLIQ key and a Wall Programming Device. Note, you need network coverage to update the key via the CLIQ Connect app.

It is also possible to enable a PIN code activation feature. PIN code activations can be done without mobile network coverage. This provides an additional layer of security since the key will automatically become inactive after for example 1h (activation time is defined by the end user) after the PIN code was entered. This reduces the risk when a key is lost or stolen since the key will in this case be unusable within an hour.

Note, the CLIQ Web Manager administrator can still require the key holder to update the key via the CLIQ Connect app “in connected mode” (when the mobile phone has network coverage) on a regular basis as specified by the administrator. A “connected” update will send the audit trail data back to the software while a PIN code activation does not do that. Note, PIN code activation is not available in CLIQ Go.

CLIQ Connect Online keys differ from the latter version in regards to the update procedure. A CLIQ Connect Online key will automatically be updated when the key is inserted into the cylinder, and the key will only open the cylinder once the update has finished. The opening sequence will take approx. 5-10 seconds. The access decision is done during the opening which provides real-time access management and audit trail. It should be noted that if the mobile phone is not available, turned off or has no internet connection then the CLIQ Connect Online key will not be able to open the cylinder. CLIQ Connect app must also be running on the mobile phone in order for the key to open the cylinder. This makes the CLIQ Connect Online key a solution only suitable for users that require the highest possible level of security and monitoring while accepting the fact that the opening of a cylinder will take a few seconds. CLIQ Connect Online keys are not available in CLIQ Go.

CLIQ Connect keys and CLIQ Connect Online keys can be mixed in the same system if needed.
