Integrate Kisi with Cisco Meraki

As a Kisi admin, you can integrate your place with Cisco Meraki's security cameras. Before setting up the integration, make sure you have API access to your Cisco Meraki cameras.


This is a Kisi-built integration, maintained and supported by Kisi.

Supported camera models

Our integration exclusively supports Cisco Meraki MV22 and MV32 camera models.

Enable API access

  1. Sign in to your Cisco Meraki Dashboard as an Administrator
  2. Under Organization, click on Settings
  3. In the Settings page, scroll down to the Dashboard API access section and check the box Enable access to the Cisco Meraki Dashboard API
  4. Click on Save Changes

Generate a Cisco Meraki API key

  1. From the Cisco Meraki Dashboard, click on your email address on the top right corner and select My Profile
  2. Scroll down to the API access section and click on Generate new API key
  3. Copy your Cisco Meraki API key from the popup window, and check the box I have stored my new API key

Set up the integration in Kisi

  1. Sign in to Kisi
  2. Navigate to Organization Setup
  3. Click on Integrations > Add Integration
  4. Enter a name, open the Type dropdown and select Cisco Meraki
  5. Paste the Cisco Meraki API key that you previously obtained
  6. Open the Search place dropdown and select the place where you want to add the integration
  7. Enable the integration

A single integration is enough to create multiple cameras in the same Kisi organization.

Import cameras


In Kisi, you can only connect at most one door to a camera, but doors might have multiple cameras associated.

  1. On your Kisi place dashboard, click on Hardware and select the Cameras tab
  2. Click on Import Camera and select the name of the integration you created above
  3. Fill out the requested information
  4. Click Import

Imported cameras will show in the list. When the associated door is unlocked, snapshots will be created and appear in the Event History. Events with snapshots are marked with a camera icon.

Snapshots may be delayed by up to ten minutes based on how soon they're available through the Cisco Meraki snapshot API, or longer if the API limits of the Cisco Meraki account have been exhausted.
