SALTO KS offers two types of credentials: Tag & Digital Key


A tag is a physical device (contactless key fob) that works based on RFID. Tags represent the user’s physical credentials to a lock. Every valid tag can lock and unlock a lock. RFID technologies available: DESfire, Mifare. 13.56MHz contactless RFID identification. High security, by using password and encrypted Proximity fobs.


A Digital Key is the virtual equivalent of a Tag. The Digital Key is stored on the user’s mobile device, and when presented to a lock, it uses BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to open the lock. This way users can use their smartphones as a Tag, opening the lock without relying on internet connection; which makes Digital Key as secure as using a physical Tag.

Technical information

The brain of a SALTO KS system is the IQ, it is the link between the lock and cloud. The IQ receives all changes and settings from your application and ensures that all locks are updated within seconds. A Digital Key is generated using encryption keys that are normally unique per IQ. It is however possible to synchronise these keys between the IQs that are part of a collection, so you can use the Digital Key on locks that are attached to different IQs
