Commercial Smart Locks for Business

Kisi Smart Locks

An electromechanical lock which is designed to perform locking and unlocking operations on a door. Smart locks, like the traditional locks, need two main parts to work: the lock and the key. Take a look at how Kisi's technology compares to traditional residential smart locks on the market.

Kisi is a better alternative to commercial smart locks because access can be managed from anywhere. While the Kevo, Salto, August, and Schlage smart locks are all intended for residential use, Kisi is a commercial remote door lock control system intended for office and large scale use. Below is a head to head comparison between WiFi smart door locks and Kisi's keyless solution.

Alternative to August Smart Locks

The August lock uses your smartphone to unlock the door. It syncs with iPhone or Android via Bluetooth (so it's a Bluetooth-enabled Lock). You can use a touchscreen instead of a key to access the space: press the button and the door unlocks. It also has a great hands-free option which allows you to unlock the door automatically once you reach the door. Sharing access to visitors on a time restricted or repeating basis is easy and can make sure you have full control over your doors.  As an alternative, you can use Kisi for access control in your residential or commercial space. Kisi works best in places of high traffic; often coworking spaces, startups, and businesses with a large range of employee schedules.

Compare Kevo Smart Locks to Kisi

The UniKey powered Kwikset Kevo is the only true touch-to-open smart lock, requiring no interaction with your phone, providing hassle-free keyless entry. It's great in residential use cases, but not for commercial.

Kisi as an Alternative to Lockitron

Lockitron brings you keyless access to your smartphone device.Lockitron lets you instantly grant family, friends and guests access to your home from anywhere in the world using your internet enabled smartphone. It installs in seconds over your current deadbolt without the need for a locksmith - renters can use Lockitron too since you don't need to change your keys. Kisi utilizes the similar concept of remote access control, without all the hardware. Lockitron requires heavy deadbolt installations which can result in high costs to the customers. KISI is a lightweight alternative to Lockitron and only uses electric strikes and technology not visible at your front door.
