For security reasons, we only recommend using Access Links (temporary keys) for short term access (e.g. guests). It is also advisable to always set up an expiry date.
The Access Link option allows users to unlock doors in your place, without having to sign up for a Kisi account or download the mobile apps. When enabled, an Access Link will be emailed to the user and they will be able to open the link to unlock the doors they have been granted access to (shown below).
After clicking on the Unlock Doors link (and provided that it's within the validity date), the user will see all the doors that they have been granted access to (shown below).
Enable Access Link
Quick Access Link can be enabled for existing or new members. To enable Link Access:
- Sign in to your Kisi account
- Navigate to Credentials
- At the top, choose Access Links
- Click Send Access Link
- Enter the recipient's name and email address. Choose the Team that this user will be added to and set a Valid From and Valid Until date/time
Click Send Link
When you issue a Key, you will see an option to select validity dates. This means that you can choose when a user’s key becomes active and inactive. You can easily issue a key to someone for a month, a day, or even an hour. When the Validity Date period begins, your user can use his or her key to enter your space. The minute this period expires, your user’s access is automatically revoked.
