How to Unlock Locks Using SaltoKS Mobile Access

This enables your device to unlock a lock via Bluetooth. In a sense, your phone transmits the digital counterpart of a Tag. 

Prerequisites

  • Your device’s Location should be enabled

  • Your device’s Bluetooth should be enabled

How it Works

When you log in to the mobile app, you will see a small lock icon at the bottom of the home page.

Step 1: Authentication

Hitting the Key button for the first time would allow you to authenticate your account and download the digital counterpart of your SaltoKS tag:

    • First, you would be asked to allow access to your device's Location and Bluetooth as part of the standard app permissions all mobile apps have. 

    • Next, the app will try to authenticate your account, which might take a few seconds. 

    • Finally, when the authentication completes, the digital counterpart of your tag will be downloaded in the mobile app. This means you can now unlock any nearby door.

Step 2: Unlock locks as you go

Hit the Lock button every time you're near a SaltoKS lock to unlock the door. Keep a close eye on the lock, which would indicate whether the operation is successful:

  • If the lock lights up in red, that indicates the door cannot be unlocked. That would usually happen if you don't have access to the door. 

  • If the lock lights up in green, then the door is unlocked successfully.
