The Kisi Reader Pro can be powered one of two ways.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
This option allows you to provide both power and network connectivity to the Kisi Reader Pro. To power the Reader Pro, run an ethernet cable from the Reader Pro’s ethernet port to either a PoE-enabled access point or the PoE port on the provided PoE injector.
If you run to the PoE injector, you must run a separate ethernet cable from the LAN port on the PoE injector to a network-enabled device.
Low Voltage Power
The second option allows you to use existing wires if any are present at the door. You can connect wires to the AUX and GND inputs in the back of the reader. At the other end of the wire run, connect a power supply that is between 5 and 12 VDC. Please note: Connecting a VAC power supply will result in damage to the Kisi hardware.
After you've provided Low Voltage power, the Kisi Reader Pro will still need internet connectivity. If you choose to power via low voltage cables, you can connect the Kisi Reader Pro to your WiFi network.
