How do I use digital key?

Digital key can best be described as an equivalent of a traditional tag or keyfob, it allows you to use your phone as a tag. If the site you are a user of has hardware that supports digital key, it will be automatically enabled in your mobile app.

In order to open a lock with your digital key, press the Digital Key icon in your app or widget and tap the lock reader with your phone to wake it up. The digital key will be sent to the lock, which will respond as usual.

This is a Bluetooth-enabled digital version of your SALTO KS key, stored in the KS app. You can use it by going into the app and tapping the Digital Key icon, or activating the Widget on your phone (iOS and Android). Once activated, the user must tap the lock with their phone to open the door.

Digital keys can be used by both KS users and guests. The same terminology applies to both, as it is the same feature. The difference is that guests can only download a digital key if a user requests an access code for them (link) and then share it with them. Guests do not have to create a full profile on the app, as they will use the Guest mode version. This technology will be used to transfer a "key" between third parties and someone's device. Allowing them to remotely open doors using their phone only.

Please reach out to SALTO Systems Support if you encounter issues using your digital key.
