Abloy UK is launching its new CIPE Manager access control management system at Connected Britain 2021, as well as showcasing its range of innovative digital access solutions that are ideal for protecting telecom and ISP sites and data centres.

CIPE Manager allows communications organisations and data centres to manage all their keys, locks and access rights from any location, with a user-friendly, cloud-based management system, which can connect with every locking solution in Abloy’s digital portfolio.

These include the keyless Abloy BEAT Bluetooth padlock, the electromechanical PROTEC2 CLIQ® system, and new ASSA ABLOY PULSE, as well as the high-security mechanical Abloy master key systems.

This range of mechanical, electromechanical and digital access solutions can be combined in a variety of ways to meet virtually any requirements, providing flexible, scalable, compliant and robust security, in a range of sites and applications, from administration buildings to remote locations.

BEAT is a new keyless padlock that combines three main components: a digital key, a mobile application and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock. It is designed especially for the protection of critical infrastructure and industrial sites, and physically secures property while offering customers improved operational efficiency, reducing both logistics and costs.

PROTEC2 CLIQ® is an easy-to-use access control system, trusted by many critical infrastructure organisations around the world, including the major telecoms and ISP organisations. It enables remote key management and provides comprehensive audit trails on locks and padlocks which fulfils the demands of regulators. It also has the facility to electronically remove lost or stolen keys from the system, meaning security can still be confidently controlled in circumstances where a key has been misplaced.

The new ASSA ABLOY PULSE is an intelligent, energy harvesting, future-proof solution that doesn’t need batteries or cables. This wireless access system combines the flexibility of electronic locking with the familiarity of mechanical security and requires no power supply as it self-charges with every use. Each user carries one programmable key giving them access to a specific allocation of locks and doors.


SMARTair is an access control system which utilises electronic locks to provide advanced, user-friendly, compliant access management with multiple credential options. With intuitive management software, facility managers control, identify and update exactly who can open every door, with an instant overview of their site’s security status.

The user-friendly interface is accessible from almost any standard PC, tablet or smartphone, and the Openow™ mobile solution has the capability to send, revoke and update virtual keys over the air in seconds.

Steve Wintle, Head of CI at Abloy UK, explains: “CIPE Manager includes a highly visual map-based user interface that provides a clear overview of the variety of locking points, connecting mechanical, electromechanical and keyless locking solutions into the same system.

“Access rights can be updated, and access permissions granted and revoked remotely from any location with most mobile devices or desktop computers, using the browser-based user interface.

“CIPE Manager provides digital convenience, control and security that simplifies managing daily processes, adding operational efficiency and complete situational awareness.”

Held at the Business Design Centre, London, from 21st – 22nd September 2021, Connected Britain is the UK's leading connectivity conference and exhibition, covering full-fibre and 5G rollouts, the digital economy, smart cities and digital infrastructure development, digital inclusion, and the evolving enterprise ICT landscape.
