Empty building protection

The building contractor Willmott Dixon was having problems with void properties and sought to protect them. The CLIQ Remote product from ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, was fitted. According to the makers it’s provided an intelligent electromechanical locking system to allow only those with the necessary authority to obtain access to the empty buildings. According to ASSA, the product allows controlled key and access management without the complexity and cost of a hard-wired solution.

Richard Perry, Void Manager at Wilmott Dixon, said: “CLIQ Remote is saving us approximately 40 hours a week, as it has eliminated the need for our employees to share keys, consequently this has led to huge cost savings. Since we’ve installed the CLIQ Remote system all of our employees have been commenting on how much time it has saved them. I would recommend CLIQ Remote to anyone with key management issues.”

Simon Wilson, National Sales Manager – CLIQ Remote, at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “We were pleased to be able to supply Willmott Dixon with a simple solution for their key management issues. Crimes against empty properties are on the increase, partly due the rising value of metal and thefts of fixtures and fittings.

“The management of keys for access is not only time consuming but also intensely laborious too and the associated costs can become very high. CLIQ Remote enables easy key management and helps alleviate these high associated costs, whilst delivering a 100 per cent key controlled environment. Improving security on a void property also helps keep the neighboring environment in good condition – meaning happy and healthy neighbourhoods.”
