Tapkey Feature Overview

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. Tapkey is designed to digitally unlock a wide range of doors. However, to incorporate an access control system into your software, you need to delve into the specifics.

At Tapkey, we provide two integration options for your convenience. The first option is the Web API integration, where end users can register and unlock smart locks through the Tapkey App. Alternatively, the Mobile SDK integration seamlessly incorporates the entire unlocking process into your existing app.
To help integrators easily compare Tapkey with other systems, we have compiled the key features of our access control system in a concise summary.

Tapkey provides integrators from various verticals with a publicly accessible API. This enables third-party applications to add smart access to their own system. The coworking management software Cobot and the office as a service provider, SKEPP, were able to convince themselves of the simple integration and now benefit from the advantages of an integrated mobile access control.
