British security specialist Squire will launch Inigma, one of the world’s most secure smart security systems for remote control access, at MLA Expo 2023.
Designed and engineered by Squire, the British name behind the world’s strongest production padlock, Inigma electronic technology takes lock security to the highest level.
Squire’s new generation Inigma electronic high security system offers convenient, secure access control for remote locations, from just one user to many thousands of users.
Importantly, Inigma has been independently tested and approved to the highest level, achieving the BSI Secure Digital Applications Kitemark™ for its operating system in padlocks, cylinders and bike locks.
The famous Kitemark symbol is widely recognised all over the world as a mark of trust. It requires rigorous testing and assessment for it to be achieved by companies that meet these international benchmarks.
Using smartphone access, what makes Inigma different is that just one app can control multiple cylinders and padlocks.
From transport, containers, commercial premises, retail, construction, perimeter gates, power plants, water utilities, oil and gas, mobile phone masts, infrastructure to farming and agriculture, healthcare to student accommodation.
Using Bluetooth BLE communication, the Inigma wireless access control system works by connecting the smart locks to a secure cloud server via a mobile network and a clever smartkey.
Just one key can open over 10,000 locks, and it can record over 10,000 locks visited. The key works in tandem with a smartphone to provide near-real-time functionality, including key re-validation and permission changes, all co-ordinated from the Inigma app.
And the key is rechargeable, it only needs to be recharged every three to four months based on normal use.
Features of the Inigma system – which is Android and Apple IOS compatible – include ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption, an easy-to-use interface and extremely flexible scheduling and grouping, enabling the implementation of complex security schemes.
It also provides a comprehensive audit trail of locks visited, enables access to be given or revoked easily, and it supports online and remote programming.
User friendly and easy to use, all the user needs is the smartkey and smartphone. Low cost and easy to install, it requires no hard wiring or expensive authorisers.
Inigma is available across a range of Squire products including euro cylinders and Squire’s formidable high security Stronghold® range of padlocks and Marine range.
Security cylinders are available in double and half euro profiles, Scan Inner/Outer cylinders and Kik cylinders, and the key features a low battery warning indicator light. The electronics are located on the inside of the door for extra protection.
Features of the Inigma Stronghold® padlock range, which comes in many sizes and shackle variants, include solid hardened steel lock body, electrophoretic anti-corrosion finish, hardened boron alloy steel shackle, anti-drill protection and high corrosion resistance for harsh environments.
The integration with Stronghold® brings added reassurance that the padlocks themselves have been tested in-house, as proof they can withstand the harshest of attack.
And most of the extra high security Stronghold® range has the added benefit of being CEN tested and approved.
Squire is recognised for some of the technologically advanced products in lock making, such as the ultra-high security, dual cylinder SS100 padlock, designed as the world’s strongest production padlock.
