The Optix integration is divided into 2 parts.
Part 1: setting up the API integration.
Part 2: setting up a plan in Optix that connects with Kisi. In this integration, Kisi manages the door access and Optix handles the payment of the space rent.
*Keep in mind that Optix only uses groups – so the user must be the owner or admin of the place for the group.
Part 1 – Connecting with Kisi
1. Login to Optix and go to Find new apps under the tab Apps.
3. Enter Kisi API Key.
4. To find the Kisi API Key → Login to Kisi dashboard and click on my account on the top right. Click on Logins. Scroll to the Bottom and Click on Show API Secret Key, and the Key will be shown.
Part 2 – Setting up an Optix plan with the Kisi integration. Connecting both services is separated into 3 parts.
- Create a Kisi group with admin or owner rights in the Kisi dashboard
- Create a space in Optix
- Create a plan in Optix
