Components of ASSA ABLOY CLIQ integration

ASSA ABLOY CLIQ Plugin
The ASSA ABLOY CLIQ plugin is installed on a Security Center server and runs as a plugin role.
Config Tool
The ASSA ABLOY CLIQ plugin is also installed on a Config Tool workstation. The Security Center administrator uses Config Tool to create and configure the plugin role.
Security Desk
The ASSA ABLOY CLIQ plugin is installed on all Security Desk workstations.
CLIQ Web Manager
CLIQ Web Manager is a web-based software that is used to manage CLIQ keys and cylinders. The ASSA ABLOY CLIQ plugin supports on-premise and cloud deployments of CLIQ Web Manager.
Key programming stations
A programming station is a standalone device or cell phone that charges and programs electronic keys. When a key is inserted in the programming station or paired with a cell phone, the station downloads access rules and schedules to the key; and uploads audit trail events to Security Center.
NOTE: Programming stations are not imported from CLIQ Web Manager into Security Center.
Door lock cylinders, padlocks, and intelligent keys
Cylinders are offline devices that store audit trails and black lists.
NOTE: Intelligent keys are battery powered. They store access rules, schedules, and audit trails. For more information, refer to your CLIQ documentation.
