Announcing the Mobile Key Widget for iOS & Android

‘Widgets’ were created because some things are so important, they need to be at your fingertips at all times. Even without opening your favorite app, they enable you to have an extension at hand by adding it to your personalised list of Widgets.

Effortlessly you are for instance able to check the weather, the latest news and since of today even open your door!

SALTO KS is proud to announce the Mobile Key Widget for iOS and Android. Below we’ll explain how to enable this convenient Widget on your phone.

What is Mobile Key?

Basically Mobile Key is the virtual equivalent of physical keys. Previously we introduced this functionality that could be used from within the SALTO KS app.

With the Mobile Key Widget, we offer an enhanced customer experience where you don’t even have to open your app anymore: Opening doors never been this easy.

Mobile Key Widget for iOS

Your Widgets can be easily accessed from your Home screen. Unlock your phone and swipe right. Here you can find your personalised list of Widgets. For iOS this screen is called ‘Today View’.

If you would like to add the SALTO KS Widget to this list first be sure your Bluetooth is enabled.

Mobile Key Widget for Android

For you to enable the SALTO KS Widget on your (smart)phone be sure to turn on your Bluetooth. When this is set, you can go back to the home screen to add the Widget.

To add a Widget on a phone that runs on Android simply unlock your phone and press and hold an open spot on your home screen. A menu will be shown. Now select the Widget tab. To add the Widget of your choice, in this case SALTO KS, touch the Widget, hold it. You are now able to drag and drop the Widget into your home screen.
