DoorFlow is a fully automated, setup-and-forget solution. Building access right policies are assigned once to your groups like Members, HR, Sales or Cleaners. So once a new person joins your organization, they automatically get the right access based on the groups you've assigned to the user.
You don’t need a technical background to implement DoorFlow and smart locks. Our UI is intuitive and easy to use and we help everybody from single-door sports clubs to multi-site coworking spaces and hotel facilities - from A to Z.
We will provide all the help you need to select the right hardware for every door you have. We guarantee a successful implementation and we’ll provide you with as much support as you need to get you there.
DoorFlow supports hardware from a number of different manufacturers and our portfolio is always growing. Every door is different and this approach gives you a broad range to choose from, keeping costs down. You can connect doors (wireless and wired), elevators, turnstiles & speed lanes, parking barriers, server and cabinet locks to DoorFlow.
If you already have access control in place, we can likely connect you to DoorFlow with minimal changes. Some of the brands we support are: Aperio, Assa Abloy, ISONAS, HID, Southco, Third Millenium, STiD and Axis.
We don’t just support cards, badges, keyfobs and codes, but also allow users to unlock doors with their phone. Users can use their phone as a key card by installing our app (or one of our partner apps) - You can even integrate DoorFlow into your company app using our SDK.

We analyse your building and requirements
We will discuss your requirements and do an assessment of your doors to understand the hardware and software needed to start using DoorFlow. In case you already have electronic locks in place, we can connect to those in most cases.
We’ll talk about your options and the total costs
You want to know the costs beforehand. At DoorFlow, we’re transparent about our prices and will give you insights on the total costs to implement DoorFlow in your organization. You can choose from several leading hardware brands, so you are never locked-in to one vendor and can choose the most cost-effective solution.
A local installer will do an on-site assessment at least 2 weeks before the installation to double-check if everything is ready for installation. To save costs, your IT department can already run network cables to points as discussed with the installer.
Let's get your DoorFlow account setup
Let's get DoorFow updated with data ahead of time. If you use user directories or membership systems we can help you connect these integrations so that you're not managing your data in two places.
It's time to install DoorFlow
The installer will do the entire installation process for you - ensuring that all locks are connected to DoorFlow and fully tested.

Cards, key-fobs, pin codes or phone?
We can cater for almost any kind of card or key-fob. Our mobile app lets you access any DoorFlow enabled door from you phone too. We support proximity (ie Prox, Mifare, DESFire, iClass), magstripe and barcode cards as well as key-fobs and pin codes.
Easy to setup
Get up and running quickly There is obviously some installation at the door, but it's minimal and all comms go through your network - once it's online, the door controller(s) will appear in your account and you can start controlling your door.
What are you controlling?
Typically you need an electronic lock (for example an electronic strike or maglock) - essentially if we can control it electronically, we're good to go.
Do you have a user list?
Upload your user list - and if you have photos then even better - your cards will look really professional.Book a free consultancy session
Moving from an existing system? No problem, what do you currently have?
An access control system typically has five parts; cards/keyfobs, electronic locks, readers, cabling, controllers. Usually we only need to switch out the controller (which is a very quick thing to do).
Keep everything and just replace the brain (the controllers)
This is the most cost effective, but we need to be sure that we can talk to your readers - we support Wiegand and OSDP/RS-485 readers and ISONAS Reader Controllers (RC-02, RC-03, RC-04) - if you're unsure, get in touch and we can help fill you in.
Update your readers to support more modern card formats or mobile phones
This is very light touch but can give a great boost to user experience. Newer card formats provide better security and mobile phone support means that you can stop using plastic cards or keyfobs completely!
You want to use cards but freshen things up a bit right?
The installers can still make use of the cabling and electronic locks, but we'll look to update your readers and get you a fresh batch of branded cards.Book a free consultancy session
Multi sites - no problem
So long as a site has an Internet connection we can keep all of your users accessing the right buildings, floors and doors ... and of course notifying you if there are any problems!

We can keep your DoorFlow account in sync with Groups in your directory. Changes made in the directory will be automatically applied to the Door Controllers - Simple
