How Parakey Works

Parakey is a mobile and cloud-based access control system that consists of three different parts;

  1. Parakey Cloud Service - Cloud service with web portal for managing users and mobile keys, and integration possibilities to automate administration.

  2. Parakey App - The user's new key to locked spaces.

  3. Parakey devices - The hardware that enriches the locked space with mobile access; Parakey Slim, Control Unit, Door Handle, Cylinder and PDL. Only one hardware per locked space is required.

Key Management Online, Unlock Offline

  • Administration of keys and users is done online via Parakey Web Portal, no matter where you as an administrator are in the world.

  • All hardware is "offline", i.e. none of the Parakey devices are connected to the internet. The Parakey app also works without internet access as long as you have received a mobile key.

    The Parakey app and hardware communicate via encrypted Bluetooth for maximum robustness and security.
