Understand the admin dashboard

It's time to get familiar with the Kisi web and mobile admin dashboards, the main control panels of your Kisi environment.

The Kisi web dashboard is a feature-rich and easy-to-use interface that allows organization admins to manage access and keep their spaces safe.

Setting up your environment

  • The left hand navigation includes everything you need to set up your Kisi environment: create a place, assign hardware to it, create a door, assign hardware to door.
  • Once ready, you can go ahead and add users and share access: select the way you want to add users, create a group, and assign access rights.

Auditing and reporting

Once your Kisi system is used, you might want to audit it on a weekly or monthly basis: review place and user analytics, event history, and download reports.

High-level organization settings

The Organization Setup menu allows you to fine-tune your organization settings: set up alert policies, integrate Kisi with other systems, or update your billing information.

The top navigation bar

In the top navigation bar, you can:

  • Open the dropdown menu to switch between places
  • Click the rocket icon to read the newest product updates
  • See if there are any event notifications from alert policies
  • Click on your username to edit account settings, switch account or sign out

Organization vs place-specific resources

Once you click on Places and select a place, the left hand navigation is changing slightly. This is because in Kisi we differentiate between organization-specific resources (e.g. users) and place-specific resources (e.g. doors).

Some of the place-specific Kisi resources:

  • Place users: users that have access to at least one door in this place
  • Place groups: groups that are scoped to this place. Place scoped groups can be managed by users with place-level advanced roles, in addition to users with organization-level roles.

Some of the place-specific Kisi features:

Some Kisi resources can be both organization and place-specific, e.g. Integrations. This means, some types of integrations must be added from the organization dashboard (e.g. SSO providers), while other types of integrations must be added from the place dashboard (e.g. Elevators).
