Keri Public Statement on the Amazon Key: Keri does not support using the Amazon Key on Keri controllers.

Click here to learn more

The Amazon Key does not interface to Keri products in a way that allows the Building Owner or Manager to maintain complete control over their system, nor does it provide any tracking information on when the Amazon Key was used to open a door.

The addition of the Amazon Key to a site introduces a security degradation beyond the control of Keri’s access control system. Neither Keri nor Amazon provides any documentation on how an installer would integrate the Amazon Key with Keri’s access control system. Because of this, Keri has strong concerns about the knowledge of the Amazon Key installers as evidenced by the damage Amazon Key installers have caused to Keri controllers and installations at multiple sites.

Any Keri controller failure caused by the installation of an Amazon Key device is cause for voiding the controller warranty. Keri cannot be held responsible for any security lapses created by the use of the Amazon Key
