Configure group

By configuring group settings you can control how and when users in a specific group can access your facility. Based on which group type you want to configure, you have two options:

  • For organization groups: navigate to your organization dashboard > Groups
  • For place groups: navigate to your place dashboard > Place Groups

Add door

  1. Select the group you want to configure
  2. Open the Doors tab and click on Add Doors
  3. [Not required for place groups] From the Place dropdown, select the place to want to share access to
  4. From the Door dropdown, select the door you want to share access to
  5. Click Add

Add floor

If you have a multi-tenant building with elevators, in this step you can allow your group to access a specific elevator stop.

To share access to an elevator stop, make sure you add an elevator first.

  1. Once there is an elevator set up, navigate back to your group settings
  2. Click on Floors > Add Floors
  3. [Not required for place groups] From the Place dropdown, select the place you want to share access to
  4. From the Elevator dropdown, select the elevator you want to share access to
  5. From the Floors dropdown, select the floor you want to share access to
  6. Click Add

Set time restriction

  1. Click on Time Restrictions > Add Time Restriction
  2. In the Type dropdown, choose between Single Event or a Recurring Event:
  • For Single Events, you can select the restriction to occur all day and for a specific time window
  • For Recurring Events, you can select the restriction to occur on a specific day within a time period, or restrict access on that door all day
  1. Add a start/end date and time
  2. Click Save

Configure group permissions

  1. Click on Permissions and adjust according to your needs.
  • Primary Device Restriction only allows unlocks from primary smartphones
  • Allow App Access allows unlocks from Kisi's mobile and web apps
  • Geofence restriction ensures that only those users can unlock the door that are in the vicinity of the building
  • Kisi Reader restriction ensures that only those users can unlock the door that are standing in front of a door
  1. Click Save

On to the next step

Now that you have a group configured, finally you can share access with your users.
