Kisi’s security platform launches a universal camera connector and adds Cisco Meraki’s MV cameras integration. This allows security management to be in one easy to manage dashboard which is available on the Meraki Marketplace as well as Cisco Devnet.
Security systems traditionally have been either bulky on-premise applications requiring expert help and maintenance, or a separate lightweight point solution, which can not be used to address more advanced needs.
Kisi has been working on integrating IP based security hardware into a cloud based dashboard. The integration with Meraki’s MV camera line allows for exactly these three functions: easier managing of security devices, remote monitoring, and intrusion alerting.

Kisi Integration: Cisco Meraki
Map Cisco Meraki cameras to doors in Kisi’s dashboard to synchronize events happening at that door in one data stream.
Review a series of snapshots directly in Kisi’s event stream.
Set alerts on specific doors, users or types of events to get immediately notified on your mobile.
In order to accomplish this integration Kisi leverages the API provided by Meraki’s cameras. "Meraki's Snapshot APIs let customers easily integrate into Kisi's access control system to provide visual context to events. This means that users do not have to watch countless hours of footage to investigate an incident, or need to be data scientists to gain insight from video analytics" says George Bentinck, Director of Product Management - Camera Systems at Cisco Meraki.
