Checklist For Integrators: The Power of Tapkey

Whether in the field of coworking, car sharing or unattended delivery: there are different application scenarios for which access to buildings, vehicles or furniture is required. One thing is clear: Tapkey can be used to digitally open all types of doors. But if you want to integrate an access control system into your own software, you need a little more detail. 

We at Tapkey offer two integration options. With the lightweight integration end users still use the Tapkey app to register and unlock smart locks. With the seamless integration on the other hand, the entire unlock process is integrated into the existing app. Watch out! We have summarized the central features of our access control system. So integrators can easily compare Tapkey with other systems.
