Helen Oy Energy, Finland


When employees at Helen Oy arrive in the morning, they update their access rights. The audit trail for the previous day is collected at the same time.


Helen Oy had multiple requirements for the security system. The solution needed to have high levels of security to ensure reliability of energy supply, around the clock and every day of the year,  a unified locking system that works across 3,500 door openings and 70 different site locations, ranging in type from power plants to warehouses, and a remote web-based administration for managing employee and contractor access rights.


The CLIQ® system ticked all the boxes. CLIQ® uses mechanical locking paired with electronic identification. After installation in 2013, each employee now carries a single, programmable key which opens only those doors that correspond to its access rights – up to 3,500 interior and exterior doors across 70 different Helsingin Energia locations. The access rights of every key are updated every 10 hours, ensuring that the company’s high security needs are met.
