Kisi API Documentation

What is Kisi?

Kisi is a cloud-based access control solution empowering organizations to manage their facilities in a smarter, safer, and more efficient way. With Kisi, IT admins can remotely manage doors and access rights, monitor real-time access events, and create secure, frictionless workspaces.

About the Kisi API

Our JSON-based API provides an interface to build your own integrations on top of Kisi, or export different types of data into your third-party analytics tools. Our endpoints cover over 30 different types of resources, exposing the vast majority of our core services.

  • Retrieve, create and update resources, such as places, doors, groups and users
  • Assign roles and permissions to users
  • Unlock doors from within the Kisi app
  • Unlock doors with tap to unlock, using our Mobile SDK for iOS and Android
  • Export or react to events, such as unlock events, in real-time using webhooks
