These are spread across nine collegiate buildings, which currently have 127 end users including house staff, regular contractors, and the Inn’s 17 scholarship students who reside there. The system is currently operating at 3,000 transactions per month, although this is expected to significantly increase, due to development work currently underway at Lincoln’s Inn.
For the Inn, the benefits of the key-centric access management system are far superior to both traditional master keying and networked access control. Given the nature of the buildings, in terms of layout and age, networking of the access points was never going to be an option for us, hardwiring would have been too complex and costly, and most wireless locking solutions would not have been suitable for the many historic doors

“LOCKEN’s cylinders have allowed us to install 21st century technology easily and most importantly, discreetly within doors that are well over 100 years old. The ability to program users into defined access groups, and if needed, take an individual key and further personalise it to that single user, gives us 100% flexibility.”
Nick Dooley, Managing Director of LOCKEN UK adds: “With software at the heart of the key-centric solution, it has the flexibility required to add further levels of security as technological advancements and innovations make their way onto the market. This is essential for ensuring the most intelligent, user-friendly and interactive solution is available to the customer.”
Induction technology: major innovation
Locken's electronic key access control solution is built with the contactless induction technology patented by the Iseo Group. Advantages for the user include the fastest opening times of any wireless access control system and exceptional ruggedness with no contact between the key and cylinder.
