Eau de Valence chose PROTEC2 CLIQ key-based access control with mechanical disc cylinders and encrypted electronics managed with a web based software — a technology already proven and trusted at critical infrastructure sites all over Europe.
With CLIQ, power to a cylinder is supplied by a standard battery inside every CLIQ key, so no wiring is required — making it an ideal retrofit solution at sites where mains electricity is difficult or impossible. With weatherproofed locks and padlocks, CLIQ can lock almost any opening, making it much more adaptable than other electronic access control systems.
Comprehensive audit trails for every cylinder, padlock and key are available on demand, so monitoring the frequency of contractor and other keyholder visits is easy. It’s also simple to limit any user’s access permissions to precise time periods. Weekly mandatory key revalidation provides yet another layer of security.
