  • Allegion wireless locks
  • Allegion gateway
  • a Kisi Controller

How does it work

The Allegion gateway allows the Kisi Controller to communicate with Allegion wireless locks. Each Kisi Controller can have one Allegion gateway with up to ten wireless locks for a total of ten doors per Kisi Controller.


The Allegion gateway is connected to the wireless lock via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Make sure the gateway is no further than 9 m (30 ft) from the locks. We recommend doing a site survey to test your connection strength. If the signal is too weak, try moving your Allegion gateway closer to your lock.

What is a wireless lock

Wireless locks are electronic locks that use wireless communication protocols, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or RFID, to communicate with access control systems and allow authorized individuals to gain entry. Many wireless locks operate on battery power, offering flexibility in installation and reducing the need for complex wiring.

Wireless locks provide enhanced security, convenience, and flexibility in integrating with existing security systems.
