Is there an eta on Kaba integration? Also curious what the cost might be if any ...

Yep, Kaba is under development now and should be done by the end of the month. No additional cost on our end.

Looks like the Kaba interface is only in PM mode with 10+ units? Any chance those of us with only 1 or 2 units will be able to get in on the act? Would make life so much easier. Thanks!

The limitation on Kaba is that you have to have your own Kaba account vs using an aggregator like A-Z Live or Secure Lodging Systems.

This is a limitation on the Kaba end. They don't provide accounts to smaller users but direct them to aggregators/resellers. And they are only able to grant access to an entire account, not to individual locks within it. So if you're sharing an account with others then you would have access to all of the locks in your account. If you have 10 or more locks they will help you break them out to your own account, but otherwise it's a sharing situation.

We're in talks with Kaba to see if there's a way round this -- either by them adding more permissioning or by us becoming a Kaba reseller and doing the permissions on our side, but no ETA on that yet.
