SALTO Integration

Proximity now integrates with SALTO lock systems and SALTO door controllers. This integration allows space owners and managers to leverage SALTO hardware with the Proximity software platform. SALTO locks and IQs will be hardwired to internet then communicate wirelessly via bluetooth to unlock/lock the doors.

If you have SALTO locks:

Proximity's integration works directly with SALTO locks. To use this integration, you'll also need SALTO IQ installed. One IQ can connect to locks up to 30 feet away. If you have SALTO locks, you do not need a Proximity door controller.

If you do not have SALTO locks:

If you have non-SALTO locks already installed at your space, use a SALTO door controller plus SALTO IQ with the Proximity integration. One IQ can connect to locks up to 30 feet away. The SALTO door controller is compatible with electric strike and mag locks.

Integration Features:

The SALTO + Proximity integration allows you to:

  • Display digital keys via the Proximity iOS and Android mobile apps and allow members to unlock doors at your space
  • Assign unlocking permissions to membership types or individual members
  • Offer 24/7 access with select membership types or to individuals who have active and paid memberships managed through your Proximity site
  • Enable digital key access with reservations at your space (for 15 minutes before and after the reservation time and during the reservation)
  • Record a check-in when anyone unlocks a door to your space via the Proximity mobile apps

Through the SALTO app, users with admin permissions can:

  • Schedule times for doors to automatically lock and match these permissions with membership types or individual members managed on your Proximity site
  • Use SALTO key codes and key fobs assigned from the SALTO platform

Connect the SALTO Integration


These steps will be completed before connecting the integration to Proximity. Your space will need to grant access to a single user in SALTO that will then be used to connect the integration to your Proximity site. There should only necessarily need to be (2) members on your SALTO site: (1) an admin, and (2) your Proximity Platform user.

  1. Create Organization
    • If you're a multispace brand, this would be your brand. Or your space name if you are a single space.
  2. Create Site
    • This will be your space name.
    • Organizations can have multiple sites. Each site has its own hardware (locks/IQs).
  3. Create 'Proximity Platform' User
    • Role: Site admin
    • Turn everything on for this user.
    • Access Groups: You can ignore this page and go to the next page.
    • Email Address: Must be an accessible email address or the integration will not work to activate your IQs
      • We suggest using a general email address that you will always have access to.
    • Phone Number: Must be an accessible phone number or the integration will not work to activate your IQs

Access Types:

  • Grant access & office mode: if you want members to be able to keep door unlocked. This could be used for locks for private offices, or reservable resources.
    • Please note: If this access type is chosen for the lock, members will be able to choose to leave the door unlocked until the lock button is chosen or the schedule is set to lock.
