Kisi iOS 4.0.0 Release

Today, Kisi launched a complete redesign of our legendary iOS App with Tap to Unlock technology! Our goal was to radically simplify and streamline the design while adding new functionality without impacting day to day routine.

While we did many of the “under the hood” optimizations, we wanted to get you a quick overview of the user facing updates in detail:

Redesigned Lock Screen

The redesigned locks screen will probably for most be the biggest change since it includes the functions that you daily use to get in the door. We condensed the locks view, so you don’t have to scroll too much. We have a “slide to unlock” function that doesn’t require holding a button.

Integrated Maps Functionality

We even made it easier to on the go find the place you are going to with integrated maps functionality:

History of Logins

Our main goal was though to expand the App’s functionality to feel more like established mobile payment options such as Apple Pay. Our thinking was to give the user more control over their access rights beyond just unlocking the doors. That’s why you now see a full history of logins in the App, so you always know which devices are using your account.

Manage Kisi Passes

You can also activate, deactivate and de-assign Kisi Passes from within the App - much how you are used to deal with credit cards in your mobile wallet.

These updates are just the main changes you’ll see in the App and we wanted to inform you a bit more about why we did the changes we did. 

There are many more small (and big) updates that we haven’t touched on in this post, such as how easy it is through the app to change your password or authorize your device. 

As always, if you have any feedback please reach out to so we can include your feedback in our upcoming optimizations!
