The challenge

Top-13 university
Controlled areas around the campus are diverse, with a balance between security and accessibility required. They include lecture theatres, offices, labs, treatment rooms and accommodation, plus the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine East Midlands (NCSEM).
The university wanted an overarching security design manual for NCSEM and other buildings.

 

Key requirements included:

  • ensure security is consistent across the campus
  • come from a trusted manufacturer
  • enable easy, secure and flexible access rights management
  • bring existing and new locks and master keys into one integrated system
  • give priority to student safety and security

The solution

Wireless access control
With CLIQ, building managers can grant access remotely, or block lost and stolen keys, using just a simple, web-based interface. This minimises the wastage in time and money incurred by replacing a mechanical lock.
NCSEM has separate and secure accommodation for outpatients, while allowing students and staff to move around the research facility.

 

No more lost keys.
With so many people transiting the facility, with CLIQ building managers can grant access remotely, or block lost and stolen keys, using just a simple, web-based interface.
