The Kisi Reader Pro can read NFC tags, meaning that as long as your card is an NFC card, it can be identified and authenticated by a Kisi reader.
If you’re not sure whether your card is an NFC card, we’d suggest downloading the App “NFC tools” on an Android phone to scan your badge, getting in touch with Kisi https://help.kisi.io/hc/en-us/requests/new, or simply googling your card.
If you know for sure that your card is an NFC card, there are a few different activation routes.
Kisi provides state-of-the-art NFC based encrypted passes that users can use at any Kisi location they are authorized. Most access control systems utilize RFID keycards. However, Kisi has developed a more secure version of the keycard based on NFC technology.
Each Kisi Pass has a token associated with it, which is printed on the back on the Pass. You can use this token to assign a card to a User. This allows you to accurately track users as they come into your space.
If a Kisi Pass is ever lost or stolen, both the User and Admin have the ability to deactivate a Kisi Pass. Additionally, if a user leaves the company, the Admin can de-assign the Kisi Pass from that User. This gives them the ability to reuse the Kisi Pass on a new User.
If your card is a native Kisi card, please follow the instructions in this article.
Other NFC cards
If your card is not a native Kisi card but is still an NFC card, you can most likely assign it to work with Kisi. (*Note* - not all NFC cards have the necessary encryption to be compatible with the Kisi system.) You will need an Android phone with the “NFC Tools” app installed. You can then follow the flow described in this article.
