Have items set up in your Nexudus account
Access to your building is managed through three categories of items available in Nexudus: passes, resources, and desks & offices. It is important to have these items set up in your space prior to the integration because they will be the connection point between Nexudus and your Salto KS access groups.
Setting up your Salto KS account
On your Salto KS account, you need to set up access groups. They define access rights for certain groups of users. You need to create these groups in Kisi in order to then connect them to passes, desks & offices, and resources in your Nexudus account.
Creating access groups
We recommend you create a access group per pass, resource, and desk or office in your floor plans.
To give you an example, if your space offers:
- 2 types of passes
- 3 meeting rooms
- 4 private offices
You will need 9 access groups in your Salto KS account.
You won't need to manually create users in Salto KS. Nexudus manage this for you, including assigning them a PIN code or up to four access cards based on the details of each customer.
Nexudus automatically adds your customers as users in Salto KS when they purchase a pass, a contract for a desk or office or make a booking for one of the resources you have connected to an access group.
Access groups are always created and edited in Salto KS. You cannot modify access groups in Nexudus.

Entry Locks Activity
In this section you can choose what check-in action to perform when a customer unlocks each of the registered doors in the selected site.
If you choose check-in for a door, you must ensure customers have valid passes to access the building. If they don't, the door will still unlock but we will report an authorised access and the customer will not be able to check in. You can see a report of failed check-ins in Operations > Failed Check-ins in your Nexudus dashboard.
In this section you can connect each of the passes available in your Nexudus account with a Salto KS Access group. Selecting a access group for a pass will mean that any customers holding that pass will be added to that access group in Salto KS.
It is important the access times and days you set for the access group in Salto KS matches that of the pass. Nexudus does not change or manage the access rights for each of the access groups in Salto KS.
Resources and Room locks
In this section you can connect each of the resources available in your Nexudus calendars with a Salto KS access group. Selecting a access group for a resource will mean that any customers booking that resource will be added to that access group in Salto KS.
Customers are added to the access group 15 minutes before each booking starts, if you add a booking with a start date in the future, customers will be added to the associated card holder group 15 minutes before that booking starts.
Customers are removed from the associated access group 15 minutes after their booking end. This accounts for cases when customers may forget any items in the room and may have to access it again shortly after their booking ends.
Desks and offices
In this section you can connect each of the desks and offices available in your Nexudus floor plans with a Salto KS access group. Selecting a access group for a desk or office will mean that any customers holding an active contract connected to that desk or office will be added to that access group in Salto KS.
Customers are added to the access group when contracts start so, if you add a contract with a start date in the future, customers will be added to the associated card holder group only when the contract starts.
Customers are removed from the associated access group when the contract reaches its cancellation date.
