Introducing Kisi for Slack: Unlock Your Office Door With Slack

By Bernhard Mehl
September 11, 2018

The mission at Kisi has always been ensuring that office access control is secure and streamlined, which is why we are pleased to announce our latest integration with the team communication service, Slack. Our new integration makes it easy for office managers and access admins to unlock office doors with Kisi using a simple Slack command.

What the Integration Does

Kisi for Slack solves a pain point for fast-growing tech companies and coworking spaces that manage high traffic volume. Office and IT administrators can now easily unlock doors for visitors through the Slack interface—seamlessly integrating the door with your work experience, rather than interrupting it.

The new integration will ensure your team always has access to your office space. By posting to a channel or sending a direct message in Slack, office administrators are able to unlock doors for visitors, wherever they are. With the Kisi and Slack integration, you’ll be able to do the following in your office:

  • Open the office door remotely using 'Kisi unlock [doorname]' in Slack.
  • Create a 'front desk' channel to monitor all remote unlocks from your team.
  • Ensure your team will never be left waiting at the front door with no way to gain access.

Perfect for emergencies and everyday life in the office. Read our full overview of different Kisi integrations that will turn your workplace into a smart work environment.
