The Kisi Controller Pro 2 allows you to migrate to the Kisi platform and modernize your access control system while keeping your existing wiring, readers, and even credentials.
- Secure as many doors as you want
- Reuse as much of your existing hardware as you want
- No disruption of operations
Inputs and outputs
- Wiegand board adaptor connection: 4 x 7 Wiegand in/output (12 volts direct current, GND, D0, D1, LED1, LED2, BZR)
- Four dry or wet relays wiring to door security hardware: dry, 12/24 volts direct current; wet: max 0.25 ampere x 24 volts or 0.5 ampere x 12 volts per relay
- One dry or wet relay wiring to intrusion detection hardware (siren/third party alarm systems): dry, 12/24 volts direct current; wet, max 0.25 ampere x 24 volts or 0.5 ampere x 12 volts per relay
- 12 generic inputs configurable as either contact sensor or request to exit
- One tamper input to send a message whenever the Controller is tampered with
- One RS-485 interface input to support third-party devices, e.g. wireless locks or cameras
- 24 volts direct current
Communication and connectivity
- Internet: Ethernet
For more information on connecting Kisi devices to the internet, please refer to Get Started - Connect to the internet.
As an internet protocol based access control system, Kisi does not require controllers and readers to be directly wired to each other. However, controllers and readers must be on the same local network for optimum performance, including offline support. Should local network communications be unavailable, controllers and readers will communicate through the internet.
Network address specifications
The Kisi controller only makes outbound connections. This means, it must have internet connectivity and be able to resolve DNS names in the following domain: *.electricimp.com
For the controller to be able to make outbound connections, it is also necessary for specific TCP and UDP ports to be allowed through your firewall. Below is a list of specific ports that need to be whitelisted.
|31314||✓||Initial device-server connection|
|993||✓||Fallback device-server connection|
|443||✓||Fetch device firmware|
|80||✓||Fallback fetch device firmware|
|53||✓||Allow DNS lookups|
The Kisi controller will attempt to connect via TCP port 31314. If that fails, it will attempt to use TCP port 993, which is typically open by default for email traffic. Ports 443 and 80 are used to request and transfer firmware updates. This port is typically open by default for HTTP/HTTPS.
For more information on network connectivity requirements and troubleshooting, please refer to the Kisi Network Connectivity Guide in our Help Center.
