Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (April 11, 2019) – The CLIQ Connect access control system by Abloy was awarded the Platinum Govies Government Security Award at the ISC West 2019 security trade show in Las Vegas. CLIQ Connect won the highest-level award in the Access Control Devices/Peripherals – Wireless category.

The PROTEC2 CLIQ access control and locking system combines the best parts of electronic and mechanical world. Based on a rotating disc cylinder, the patented PROTEC2 ensures mechanical locking, while the electronic CLIQ technology enables the flexible management of keys, access rights and the access register.

The CLIQ Connect application on your smartphone, in turn, makes it possible to update the user’s keys with new access right anytime, anywhere. The app is easy to connect to both new and already existing PROTEC2 CLIQ systems.

“With the CLIQ Connect mobile app the user can update individual access rights made by the administrator to the key. It is ideal for geographically spread out organizations. The optional personal PIN code authentication added to the mobile key makes it even more secure,” said Jerry Burhans, Managing Director, Abloy USA.
