Digital Key: A multitude of possibilities

Imagine this scenario: You are a coworking space operator. Your new member finds himself in front of a locked door. To be specific: Your locked door. The member is in a hurry, doesn’t have any keys and on top of it all, there is no internet connection available. You do your very best to hurry but traffic jams make sure you will be delayed at least half an hour.

For a coworking space operator or any other operation manager for that matter, the above scenario is a true nightmare: These kinds of situations can make or break the carefully constructed reputation of a company.

What if we told you there’s a way to avoid not only these situations but also the front desk and extra paperwork? With Digital Key, you bring a multitude of possibilities into your space that enhances your members experience beyond expectation.

Let us paint another picture: You own a Coliving space and don't want your tenants (or you) to worry about invoicing for the usage of the laundry machines. By providing the possibility of depositing money on their credentials the tenant is able to 'tap' to use the laundry machine. By using the Digital Key functionality on their phone the amount will automatically be deducted from their credit so additional administrative tasks become obsolete.

Digital Key used from the SALTO KS app


If you are already familiar with SALTO KS, you are already used to make remote openings with the app on your phone from wherever you are on the globe. With Digital Key, you now are able to simply tap your lock and open the door without an internet connection or even opening the app.


Digital Keys are transferable and stored in your digital device. This means you can send your member a secured message and therefore enabling him or her to open the door with their own phone. With the help of BLE technology (Bluetooth Low Energy), the lock gets opened when receiving the signal from the Mobile Key.


With the Digital Key Widget, we offer an enhanced customer experience where you don’t even have to open your app anymore: Opening doors never been this easy. Your Widgets can be easily accessed from your Home screen.

Digital Key for iOS


Granting access to visitors, employees or delivery services can be managed the same way as the other four ways of opening: With help of Access Groups on which you are able to manage your users and group them to your preference. Establish timeframes and easily add or remove users from a group.


With the introduction of the Digital Key functionality, we are one step closer to a key-free world. It becomes easier and intuitive to open your doors for yourself or anyone you want to grant access to wherever on the globe you might be.
