Welcome to Kisi - a next-generation door access control and security solution. Kisi is a remotely managed cloud system that integrates with a variety of hardware devices and software tools.
Kisi offers a multitude of features that allow administrators to have control of the doors and the users who access them. Administrators can manage doors and their schedules, manage access rights, add or remove users or admins, assign credentials, set access levels, and monitor real-time access events wherever they are, with a live feed and system health status notifications delivered to their mobile phones.
Users can access places through different methods. They can use their phones, cards, stickers or fobs.
The main hardware that composes the Kisi system is the Kisi Controllers and the Kisi Readers. Depending on the needs of a particular facility, they can just install controllers or they can install both.
The Kisi Reader Pro is an IP-based access control reader that uses an operating system to decide which communication channel to use based on what's available and fastest for the user.
The Kisi Controller Pro is the heart of the system, it is the central hardware unit, also IP-based, that enables access to the doors.
Kisi can connect with several hardware components apart from doors. A Kisi system can include elevators, cameras, sensors, thermal scanners, intercoms, and more.
There is an extensive amount of integrations that Kisi supports and that fall into categories such as data analytics, CRM, identity management, office tools, user provisioning, or visitor systems.
