Kisi with legacy reader and legacy controller

Use case example

You can integrate Kisi with your legacy reader and controller, while maintaining your existing strike wiring to the legacy controller.


  • Reuse your existing readers and credentials
  • Maintain your existing strike wiring to the legacy controller
  • Enable physical card and mobile in-app unlocks with Kisi
  • Let Kisi decide how to handle unknown credentials: reject or pass through to legacy system

How it works

  1. The user taps a card on the legacy reader
  2. The signal is sent to the Kisi system
  3. Kisi verifies and authorizes the credential
  4. Kisi sends the unlock request to the legacy controller
  5. The legacy controller unlocks the door
