Here's a comparison between Salto and more modern cloud-based access control systems:
Most modern companies operate entirely in the cloud, so there should be no need for the doors at your office to operate differently than your computers.The problem with Salto is that it's not a cloud solution.
Salto's enterprise system works with an on-premise server. Salto needs a multitude of different local solutions ranging from ZigBee to SVN servers.
Kisi's enterprise system starts with one unit and can be scaled up seamlessly. Kisi's system is truly online, controlled by the cloud and can be updated from anywhere. Click here to see how it works.
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 with any lock that is electronically connected so it's vendor neutral.
As your company grows you need a future-proof system and to rely on a vendor that is always improving its product offering.
For Salto innovation means a new lock
For Kisi innovation means enabling new seamless and secure experiences in spaces using modern technology that includes mobile, IoT and the cloud. Kisi now offers offline functionality as well.
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.
An advantage of the Salto system is that it is a wireless lock system that includes user credentials. No need for vulnerable HID readers.
The disadvantages are that you still need a local server so it's not a fully cloud-based system.
The Salto system is a great option, especially when used in multi-lock environments with many doors. Like many other major access control manufacturers, finding a pricing list for Salto locks online is not easy and you will ultimately have to rely on a custom quote.
