The theatre is a Berlin landmark of 19th-century Classical architecture. With CLIQ® technology from ASSA ABLOY, building security and access management is now flexible, reliable and future-proofed for its 21st-century audience.

How? Because security managers at the Deutsches Theater, Berlin, chose CLIQ®, a mechatronic locking system which integrates cutting-edge microelectronics and intelligent data encryption into a high-quality mechanical locking cylinder system. CLIQ® technology provides an extra layer of electronic protection, enhancing high-quality mechanical security by simplifying key management and making access control more flexible. Every CLIQ® key is battery-powered, and can easily be programmed with access rights to suit each authorized keyholder.

That’s not the only way CLIQ® makes life easier for Deutsches Theater security managers. Fine-grained permission schedules, right down to the individual door, can be set for every employee and contractor. A programmable CLIQ® key can be scheduled to permit entry only at pre-set times—during public opening times, for example, or after hours for cleaning staff. Any permission updates are easily communicated from system to door using CLIQ® programming keys.

Power is supplied by batteries inside every key, so it’s not necessary to visit every locking cylinder individually to replace batteries. And because CLIQ® locks are wireless, no major alterations were needed to the existing door hardware or building aesthetics — a critical feature when refitting an historic building like the Deutsches Theater. It’s also straightforward to add new CLIQ® locks to more theatre doors, if building management needs change in the future.

In addition to putting building managers in greater control of their premises, CLIQ® has significantly upgraded security for theatre staff, and for the public who attend its three different auditoriums. If an employee or contractor loses a key, its access authorization can be withdrawn simply by reprogramming the locking cylinder using a programming key. The lost key would no longer work.

With CLIQ® technology, there’s no need to replace locking cylinders when a key goes missing — which saves the theatre time and money, too.
