How we make it happen

At the simplest level, we create communication between your door readers, electronic locks and access control panel to give you a ‘God’s Eye View’ on your Kisi dashboard of your entire set-up.

Kisi Rreader and Phone

Door Readers

The door reader sends the information to the door controller in the IT room. The reader is connected to internet which transmits the signal to the control panel.

Access Control Panel

In the IT or communications room sits the door access control panel. The controller is connected to power, internet and to the door lock.
