Live Events

See who has opened which door at what time, and with what opening method (ie, app, software, NFC card etc) with the Digital Keys API. The events will store in your database, and can be emailed/sent as app notifications to managers/owners.

Delete digital keys 

Add the delete digital keys button  to your software/apps, so that you can cancel the digital key for any user in an instant from anywhere at anytime with the Digital Keys API.

Live status updates

Get a live battery status update in your software and set up notifications to manager's phones for when battery gets to below 20% capacity. Also know when the door is open or closed. You can also check network signal strength anywhere at anytime.

Remote unlock

Add a remote unlock button to your software/apps, so that you don't have to generate a digital key everytime you or your staff want access. You/your users can simply ring up the account administrator who hits the remote unlock button in your software to let users in.

Control user/user group access

Managers and owners of assets need to let some employees go certain places, but restrict access to other places. For example let your technicians have access to server rooms, but restrict access to everyone else. This feature means you can easily control access for users/groups

With our API's its easy to add a button, a table or a function anywhere you want in your existing apps or software

Backed by mobile network security - NB-IoT is the only globally licenced IoT communications technology by GSMA/3GPP

You can choose which modules/features to add to your own software and apps and where to put them for best design and management

NB-IoT smartlock architecture diagram
  • A user generates a request for a digital key for a specific lock in a booking calendar for any future date and time.

  • This request is then sent to the NB-IoT platform and assigned a unique ID and stored in the database there.

  • The digital key ID is also sent immediately to the users app as an unlock button.

  • Lock sends data of unlocking back to database

System Architecture

Can we manage access control for users entirely via the API?


Yes, you can choose which features/modules you want to add to your own apps and software (e.g create digital keys, live events) and use our API to these specific features to your own apps and software.




Can the system integrate with 3rd party software and apps (software/apps that we don't own)?


Yes, but you will need to have access to that third party software and apps source code so you can integrate our access management features to that third party software and apps. For example if you want to integrate a third party Property Management System owner that is not yours, you will need to make arrangements with that PMS owner to integrate our API's to their software. You will need to faciliate these arrangements yourself - we only provide the API's.




Is the API open (API) so that developers can integrate the control system into other systems and applications (ie. to retrieve data, send data etc)?


The API is open to use after you request access to it from us. Please email us for a copy of the API info@digitalkeys.io




Is the system compatible with Android, iOS and other operating systems?


Yes. If you want to add the NFC write to card module to your own app, you can only use Android app (not iOS), and some iPhone models don't allow unlock with NFC. Please check with your phone specific model about NFC availability and use available.




Is there ongoing costs to use the API's?


This depends on a number of factors such as which carriers/platforms/order size/usage rates. Please email us info@digitalkeys.io to discuss further.
