As companies grow it's important to stay flexible in terms of what locks to use, there might be different countries or situation that require different solutions.
Salto requires you to use their proprietary locks. Salto's lock is based on Salto's communication standard Kisi works vendor-neutral with any wired lock on the market.
Kisi can work with any lock that is electronically connected.

For Kisi innovation means enabling new seamless & secure experiences in spaces using modern technologies including mobile, IoT or cloud.
The facility experience - something Kisi is looking to disrupt with modern technology.
Kisi's Cloud Based Physical Access Control System operates purely in the cloud, making it easy to set up and highly scalable as you expand.
Admins are able to easily establish granular controls with group, user and time-based restrictions -- just to name a few. End users have a range of unlocking options, including mobile apps available on Android and iOS, key cards and fobs.
The advantages of the Salto system is that it is a wireless lock system that includes the credential side of things. No need for vulnerable HID readers.
The disadvantages are mainly that you'd still need a local server and that it is not a fully cloud based system.
