Unlocking doors the smarter way


Workplace safety and security, as well as optimization of space usage, is one of the top priorities, no matter what type of facility you run. Whether it is about the offices and meeting rooms in a private firm, rooms in a hotel, areas in a congress center, department or ministry, or even flats in an urban villa – all you need for a flexible and secure option is to give Kisi access to your facility.


Kisi is a physical access control system for businesses that allows users to securely unlock doors using a smartphone. Unlike standard keyless systems which work only with RFID or NFC cards, with Kisi all you need is a smartphone. This modern software and hardware solution enables you to have a high level of workplace safety and security, with easy access to every area and the possibility to calculate office space and meeting room utilization. Whatever type of facility you run, secure it with Kisi.

What is it all about?

Some people like to use their phones for everything, others don’t. Others would like a temporary link so that they would not have to pick up a card. Depending on the use-case and preference, Kisi gives you flexible, yet secure options to give access to your facility. You can share a link, remotely unlock or schedule unlocking the door, and it is so easy to unlock the door with a phone. You just pull up the app and press a button or tap your phone like a card against a Kisi Pro Reader so you don’t have to even open the phone.


Kisi gives you cloud-based physical access control and it connects to all commercial-grade electronic locks. Kisi unlocks doors using location-aware Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or NFC connectivity so you can unlock all doors using the Kisi app or NFC pass. It connects gates, doors, and elevators to the central access management dashboard.

The work

Kisi chose us to design electronic modules for their access control system. Kisi Reader is a compact, highly integrated electronic device that is powered via an Ethernet cable using PoE technology. It connects to the Internet via WiFi or Ethernet, communicates with smartphones via Bluetooth 4.0. and reads NFC cards using the integrated antenna on the front of the device.

The outcome

Thanks to our skilful engineering, the Electric Imp company, a particularly important player in the world of IoT, chose us as their Product Design partner. We did full hardware design: from electronics to manufacturing quality, and mechanical engineering.

"Byte Lab develops hardware for our access-control system. It functions perfectly."
