Endeavour EnergyEndeavour Energy logo

A NSW Government state-owned energy corporation, responsible for the safe and reliable supply of electricity to 2.2 million people in households and businesses across Sydney’s Greater West, Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands and the Illawarra. With an estimated value of $3.3 billion, this network spans 24,500 square kilometres and is made up of over 170 major substations, 315,000 power poles and 28,000 smaller substations bound together by 33,000 kilometres of underground and overground cables.

Independent Locksmiths & Security won the tender to work with Endeavour Energy on the Supply and Maintenance of a Proprietary Built Masterkey System.

The Requirements:Endeavour Energy

• A high security locking system was needed to prevent the ongoing security threats and protect onsite workers.

• A controlling system was also needed for the issuing of keys to all key holders.

• A system capable of securing assets and providing an audit trail of key/lock use. Assets included Electrical substations, Field Support Centres, Communication sites and Distribution Networks.

Our Solution:

To provide Endeavour Energy with the Abloy Protec2 Cliq System, combining Restricted Master Keying with Access Control and Key management. ABLOY PROTEC2 CLIQ has the key control of a high security mechanical keying system as well as an audit trail functionality of an Access Control system.Abloy Protec2

Independent Locksmiths & Security worked closely with stake holders from Operations and IT to design and implement the masterkeying system and network software. Work involved creating an intricate locking system with permission based access control and a state-of-the-art Mechanical locking system. This included a mechanical and electromechanical key hierarchy.

As Endeavour Energy depend upon the ability to deliver their service 24/7, any break or interruption to this service caused by vandalism or physical attack would prove costly. Maintenance of an Electrical substation is undertaken by Endeavour Energy staff as well as various contractors. With ABLOY CLIQ, access is now granted remotely and in real time for unplanned visits, and reports can be generated to identify who has been onsite. In addition, any lost keys can be rendered obsolete for use by the network controller, enabling total control of every key distributed to personnel.

At Independent Locksmiths & Security the team of Masterkeying Experts continue to work on the design, coding and support of this system. Independent has been able to provided Endeavour with a masterkey solution that is capable of future expansion in regard to the quantity of keys/locks and the number of access groups available.


“Abloy Protec2 Cliq was the perfect fit for Endeavour Energy,

giving them control over who has access to their facilities, remotely.

It has been great to work with a world class product for this client”
