Access management is different for every business. Whether a software company for coworking businesses, a coworking space with a single location or a larger coworking brand with multiple locations; integrating smart lock technology with access control enables a seamless customer experience.

SALTO Keys as a Service (KS) provides a flexible access control management system that requires no software installation or the added expense of a fully wired electronic product.

Coworking space owners can easily manage access for their locations on-the-go; on top of opening doors remotely, blocking access, viewing entry activity and receiving activity messages on a smartphone.

Controlling who goes where and when creates operational efficiency. With SALTO KS, coworking space managers can grant designated access to visitors, employees, or even delivery services whenever it is necessary for them to enter.

So, no need for investment in application development; and wherever you are around the globe reap the benefits of trained and certified SALTO installers network worldwide.

Regardless of the size coworking spaces need an access control solution. Here are a few of their core needs;

  • A quick start solution for cloud-based access control
  • Remotely opening any door, from anywhere
  • Controlling who goes where and when
  • Viewing door activity and receiving activity messages on your phone
  • Trained and certified hardware installer network worldwide


Coworking spaces of any size leverage various tools to better manage their space and provide competitive member experience. That’s why coworking space owners might not only need an out of the box solution for access control but also options to integrate with their existing coworking tools; such as booking/reservation tools, community engagement tools, space management tools and many more.

The Wheelhouse, an inspiring coworking space in Amsterdam offers desks and offices to creatives. Besides having SALTO locks on its doors, The Wheelhouse has maximised the benefits of SALTO KS! By integrating SALTO KS with the data-driven management platform Office R&D, The Wheelhouse succeeded in offering its members and staff an easy way to manage access to their coworking space, with very tasteful offices and meeting rooms.

The integration allows for coworking space members to manage their bookings themselves. The members can reserve a room and get access for the requested time and unlock the door of the meeting room with their own tag or smartphone. By integrating SALTO KS with a management tool like Office R&D you will enjoy easy onboarding of members, reduced costs and an engaged community.

Still wondering how the integration of access control can help improve customer experience? Imagine you’re a coworking space manager, already using a booking/reservation tool. Any data entered into one of your existing coworking tools; regarding users, rooms or time frame will automatically be converted to access rules in SALTO KS. So, no duplication of work!

You can also improve your member experience by customised actions, making your members feel the most special in your space. By integrating SALTO KS with your coworking tool you can send customized welcome messages to first-timers, automatically invoice extended bookings, grant or deny access to cleaners depending on the usage of rooms and much more!
