When you start the app it scans the nearby area for doors and displays them. There you can see the name of the door (for instance "Office" or maybe "Garage"). Tap on the name of the door to open it.

When you tap the door name the app begins to unlock and when it turns green the door is unlocked and you are free to open it.

Should the app fail to unlock a door it turns yellow instead. When that happens you can try to move closer to the door and tap the door name again when it's available.

Can't find your door?
Move closer to the door, then press the button with an arrow (iPhone) / arrows (Android) in the top right to scan the surrounding area again.

Unlock using NFC

Using our NFC stickers you can unlock the door without opening the Parakey app. If you can't find a sticker at your door please contact the person responsible for the place you have access to for more information.

Unlocking with NFC differs between iPhone and Android, for more information please read in the individual articles.
