Cloud-based physical security and access control system

Kisi overview

What is Kisi?

Kisi is a cloud-based secure access control system designed to help enterprises across various industries such as real estate, IT, healthcare, education, and manufacturing manage door access for authorized personnel or visitors using a combination of sensors and mobile devices. Features include user authentication, alarms, zone sharing, user group management, and device status monitoring.

The application comes with Kisi Reader Pro, a Bluetooth and NFC-enabled wall reader system, which self-calibrates to improve unlock time and provides feedback via the software regarding remotely opened doors. Administrators can control gate access across multiple locations, review past events or door entries through recorded snapshots, share access permissions, and configure security settings. The Kisi Controller system lets security teams manage access to four doors, elevators, or turnstiles simultaneously and receive alerts for unauthorized entries.

Kisi offers integration with various third-party systems such as Cisco Meraki, Okta, Google Calendar, JumpCloud, Nexudus, Optix, Kibana, Envoy, and more. Businesses can share access keys via email and enable remote unlocking of doors for employees and authorized guests. It also allows security teams to maintain an event log and allocate temporary keys to visitors.

A Seamless Experience for Elegant Security

Pros
The Kisi Keyless Door Access system has been a success in our office space. I had heard about Kisi's reputation for quality products and outstanding customer care - after our initial consultation and conversation, I was sold. From purchase to install to everyday use, we've been extremely satisfied with Kisi. To remain HIPAA compliant, it is paramount that we have a locked office door at all times. Other locks or ID systems are bulky and archaic. Kisi has created a sleek, pseudo-sexy model that is beautifully enigmatic in our entryway. We especially love the RFID capabilities and that our phones can be our access keys! No more losing expensive key cards or fumbling with outrageous FOBS. Our pockets are weighed down enough! We had one glitchy day in the system, and Kisi was super-responsive in handling the blackout. I was impressed with how they communicated with me and their efforts in getting us back online within a few moments. Overall, I highly recommend using this product and working with Kisi. They have been and continue to be a pleasure to work with!

Cons
The only downside to the Kisi hardware is that the actual hardware options are fairly limited. We have a new space that requires an in-door mounted security system - something Kisi doesn't offer (yet!).

Our company was looking for a way to control global access. Previously we had security companies do individual install and had to have someone at each location control access and issue cards for entry. We needed a way we could show that when someone left the org or was terminated we immediately disabled access, without hoping the person at the location was paying attention to delete access.

Pros
Kisi is the best way in the business to control access for multiple locations from one easy administrative portal. The app is easy to use and the hardware complements it perfectly. Our users love how easy it is to get in and out security teams love how easily it is to enable and disable access.

Cons
The features that I WISH Kisi had is actually already on their roadmap! I want SAML 2.0. They have it on the way. I want enhanced administrative levels of control, they already have that on the way!

Seamlessly use every day

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Pros
Super simple. We use this literally every day at my office, in fact one office uses it exclusively to get in and out of the building. Just click into the app, click the door you want to open and voila, it opens! Honestly awesome, so much better than keys. Wish my house had this.

Cons
Sometimes it takes a moment for the app to connect/occasionally it doesn't recognize the door and you have to reload the app. It also would be great if it stayed open for just a liiiiiiittle bit longer... I often have a lot in my hands and have to put my phone away before I can open the door, and by then it's locked again.

Response from KISI


Hi Gabrielle, thanks a lot for the review! Let your systems team know regarding the door open time, they can easily update that and our support team is happy to help!

Are you still using a key to open a door?

Pros
Very easy to use the app, just tab to the door on the app and the door is open. Sharing access can't be easier and the best part is we always get a notification when someone opens any of the doors. Also, Kisi provides a record of the entire usage of the app. I know who opened the door 4 years ago at 2 pm. Awesome, right? Thank you, Kisi for making our life easier and safer.

Cons
The users get used to having an easy access to the office. Tap to the phone and the door is open right away. They don't want to wait for even 5 seconds any more at the door :)

Perfect solution for remote door control

Pros
Our company is unique in a way where our receptionists are all remote workers. They use video conferencing to meet and greet our visitors. Kisi allows them to control the office doors from the comfort of their home offices.

Cons
When we first purchased the service, we were one of the first companies to implement the solution. The initial setup at the beginning was cumbersome, but I'm sure it has improved since then.
