Checking in with access control solutions

by Andy Clutton

A hotel environment is fast-paced and ever changing, with staff and guests coming and going 24 hours a day. Despite this, it’s a business owner’s job to ensure that the building – and everyone in it – is safe and secure.

Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ access control system utilises CLIQ technology to allow hotel chains and holiday park resorts to manage access permissions remotely, from one central location. This includes the ability to schedule individual access permissions for each key, as well as to provide time-limited access.

This is ideal for hotel chains with complex access and security requirements, as it allows tailored access for members of staff who may be coming and going at various times of the day, and also enables administrators to grant time-limited access to contractors and delivery drivers.

If a key is lost or a member of staff leaves, access can also be revoked, which is particularly useful for chains and parks with a high staff turnover, or those that employ seasonal staff for busier times of the year. This not only offers enhanced security but also reduces whole life costing, as it removes the need to replace physical locks; and keys can be validated daily, weekly or monthly to keep them continuously secure.

The system’s audit trail capabilities also allow business owners to access data illustrating who accesses which lock and when; ideal for those who are concerned about staff shrinkage or those who want to determine who should have access to certain assets.

Working on a modular system, eCLIQ locks are easy to install with no cabling required. Not only is maintenance not required for up to 200,000 cycles, but key batteries are also fast and easy to replace once every 30,000 operations, at a nominal cost to the business, with no need for specialist tools.

For short-break properties, access is needed by a variety of personnel who all have their own individual requirements. Business owners, delivery drivers, cleaning staff and of course guests themselves, are just a few examples of people who each require specific access permissions.

Mul-T-Lock’s CLIQ Go access control system allows small to medium sized short-break property owners to remotely manage security ‘on the go’. It boasts all the benefits of eCLIQ, but can be managed by a designated administrator via the CLIQ Go app.

This includes the ability to schedule individual access permissions for each key, provide time-limited access, and revoke access to particular keys as and when needed – making it particularly useful for properties that have a constant turnover of guests.
