Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ “takes security to a new level” for large-scale retailers

Mul-T-Lock has launched its new eCLIQ access control system for larger retailers, allowing organisations to remotely manage access permissions at the click of a button. The new and advanced eCLIQ technology permits organisations to both grant and remove access permissions remotely. This includes the ability to schedule individual access permissions for each key, as well as to provide time-limited access. If a key is lost, access can be also be revoked using the eCLIQ software: all managed from a cloud-based system.

Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ system is particularly useful for larger retailers that often suffer from a high staff turnover. Having the ability to revoke access permissions when a member of staff leaves allows business to uphold security. This not only offers enhanced protection, but also significantly reduces whole life costing.

In the past, when a mechanical key was lost, security could only be guaranteed by replacing the whole mechanical suite of locks at an unwelcome cost. Now, eCLIQ “takes security to a new dimension” by giving retailers maximum control and reducing maintenance costs.

Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ is the ideal solution for a variety of applications, such as in a 24-hour supermarket where members of staff are coming and going at various times of the day, and for granting time-limited access to contractors and delivery drivers.

eCLIQ is a completely electronic locking system based on the mechanical precision and microelectronic modules of ASSA ABLOY’s CLIQ technology. The electronic contact between keys and cylinders transmits power and data securely with AES encryption.

Working on a modular system, cylinders are quick and easy to install with no cabling required, offering an easy-to-install and low maintenance solution for retailers. Key batteries are fast and easy to replace once every 30,000 operations, at a nominal cost to the business, with no need for specialist tools.

The available cylinders are also suitable for a number of different applications, from office doors and cold storage areas through to external gates and even potentially explosive areas. There’s also a varied range of compatible padlocks available designed for all weather conditions.

Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ technology offers automation and integration. It collects important information and allows for traceability, in turn enhancing security for retailers and offering operational efficiencies.
