70% of their systems on the cloud
A recent facility move necessitates a video and access solution with open API to integrate with their existing features
Active 24/7 surveillance
Event-based incident documentation and investigations

Mobile access for increased security and convenience
As one of the most prominent and modern power tool companies, the IT team has already moved 70% of the systems to the cloud. The recent move to a 600.000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility prompted this industrial company to search for a cloud-based access control solution. To secure their distribution and R&D centers, they choose Kisi as a video and access solution with an open API that can easily integrate with their existing features.
As an easy-to-deploy solution with a vast reseller and installer network, Kisi provided a rapid proof-of-concept at the new HQ. The manufacturing company had a chance to test Kisi and Meraki MV cameras together with IT on mobile devices and cards. After completion, it was presented and approved by management and C-level.
Besides the ease of implementation and the ability to connect all their locations and manage access remotely, the manufacturing company also had prevention in mind when choosing Kisi. The advanced video functionalities, access data, various integrations, and open API support inventory loss and incident prevention.

Given Kisi’s advanced video functionalities, the manufacturing company shifted from active 24/7 surveillance to event-based “after the fact” documentation and investigations. The admins configured the alerts to their preferences so they get alerted on their mobiles when specific doors in high-priority and risk areas are unlocked or held open.
To enhance security and avoid access control duplication, the power tools company decided to integrate Kisi with Azure and put Kisi’s mobile access into daily use.
