Locken secures great british historic buildings
LOCKEN is proud to announce that it has installed its innovative key-centric solution at Lincoln’s Inn, the earliest of the four Inns of Court in London. The historic building, with origins dating back to the 1400s, houses a society of lawyers and judges, and is recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious professional bodies of barristers. The 11 acre privately owned estate in the centre of London has commenced an initial roll-out of 200 electronic cylinders.

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.”
