The Kisi Apple Watch app

The Kisi Apple Watch app allows you to open doors without using your phone. Please note that the Apple Watch app comes bundled with the iOS app. This means, you need have the iOS app installed on your phone in order to use the Apple Watch app.

Once the app is opened, you will be able to see a list of your favorite doors, which you can tap to gain entry.

The app is compatible with watches using watchOS 7.2 or later.

Kisi on Apple Carplay

Kisi seamlessly integrates with Apple CarPlay, allowing you to unlock garage doors and gates through Apple CarPlay. This eliminates the need to reach for the remote controls or iPhones while on the move, increasing safety for those inside the car and the surrounding environment, ensuring a more secure and focused driving experience.

The integration requires an iPhone with Kisi iOS app version 44.0 and above. Once signed in, the Kisi icon will appear on CarPlay. When you open the app, a list of your favorite doors will be displayed, allowing you to tap to unlock.
