Kisi is the house key in your smartphone.

Lost or forgot your house key? In a rush to hand over keys to guests? Today it only needs a click on the smartphone to unlock the door: kisi integrates the key into the smartphone with the advantages of never losing your key again and sharing it with full control: The digital doorman for everyone.

How does it work? Kisi is a digital access solution which can be used by landlords, frequent travellers or families to manage access rights directly on their smartphone. Also business clients like home care services, small businesses like gyms, dorms or botique hotels can improve their service.

Kisi works just like a regular key: An authorized user can unlock the door at a click on his smartphone - from anywhere in the world. To use the service, the user can install the associated hardware per plug&play at his apartment.

In contrast to existing solutions, kisi can control the house- and apartment door right from inside the apartment. Nothing changes for other tenants. The approval of the landlord is usually not necessary. Keys can be sent from App to App for free. Business clients can use kisi´s management software for all their doors and access rights.

About kisi Kisi is made in munich technology. It was founded in October 2012 by Bernhard Mehl, Maximilian Schütz and Carl Pfeiffer with a startup stipend by the german government. All three founders have prior startup experience.
