  2. Choose a notification type between Rejection Event and Entry Event

  3. Choose how you wish to be notified (email and/or push notification on the SALTO KS mobile app).

What are incidents?

Incidents are issues or unusual occurrences concerning your locks, such as intrusion, tampering, low battery, etc. Staying on top of incidents within your site is crucial to ensure maximum security and allow for swift action when needed. This is why we send you incident notifications for the following types of incidents:

  • Intrusion alarm: An intrusion alarm indicates that the door was opened without presenting a valid opening method (Digital Key, Tag, PIN or Remote Opening).

  • Tamper alarm: The Tamper alarm occurs when the sensors on the lock have been triggered, indicating that the lock has been interfered with.

  • Door left open alarm: Door left open alarm indicates that the door was left open for more than 30 seconds, which is detected by the sensors on the door and the lock.

  • Low battery: You will be notified when the lock has low battery levels. This means the battery needs to be replaced ASAP. If left in this state, there is an increased risk for rejections.

  • EOM failed to end: Easy Office Mode has failed to end on the lock and as a result the door is unlocked and can still be opened.

SALTO KS web app enables Site Owners and Site Admins to configure the notifications for incidents relevant to them. If you have one of these roles, you can customize your notifications by defining:

  • Which incidents you would like to be notified on (intrusion, tamper, low battery, etc.)

  • Which locks you would like to get notified about (you may also select all locks in your site).

  • What type of notification you would like to receive (via email or a push notification on the mobile app)

  • You can also choose to be notified when the alarm stops.
