In particular, the event was an opportunity to introduce eCLIQ to the local security market. Based on ASSA ABLOY’s group-wide CLIQ technology, eCLIQ allows the user to set up flexible access rights and schedules through the use of programmable keys and cylinders.

A wide range of locking cylinders is available, which can be installed in a matter of minutes. It can be installed in doors as well as anything else where a lock would typically be required, such as cabinets and server doors. Programming and management can be performed with the use of either a desktop or web-based software platform. Key programmers are available in desktop, wall-mounted and mobile versions, and a mobile phone app provides an additional programming method.

“We are really excited to be launching the new eCLIQ system, and it was great to have so many industry professionals join us for the event,” commented Hayley Elwen, ASSA ABLOY’s business development director for Africa.
