They are powered over ethernet (PoE) and will soon offer offline caching for emergency scenarios. The Bluetooth and NFC wall reader works effortlessly with both access cards and mobile devices to securely unlock doors.

System Suite

With the cloud management dashboard, administrators of the facility can share keys, control access permissions based on time and door, and see access reports for unlock activity. 

User credentials for the system include mobile apps for Android and iOS devices that communicate with readers using NFC and Bluetooth.

We understand that not everyone has a smartphone or bring it all around with them. Hence, key holders can also use Kisi Passes which are Kisi’s own, more secure version of the traditional proximity card. 

Kisi tags are also available for those who would like to paste them on their existing cards!
