Kirio user management explained


To manage the users connected to your Kirio system, open the Kirio app and tap on Users in the menu.

Users of a Kirio system are organized into two types that define their roles: Master and regular users.

For each regular user, an access-type can be granted to Full, Local or Read-only. The access-type setting provides permission-based and location-based access control to devices included in the the Kirio system. Please read the information below for a full explanation.

User-types defined

Regular - A regular user is able to:

  • Control, adjust and monitor all devices.
  • Create private scenarios.
  • Execute own and shared scenarios.
  • Share scenarios with other Regular users.
  • Rename and organize rooms on their devices.

Master - A master user is like a Regular user with the added ability to:

  • Approve new users and set their Access-type.
  • Block and remove any existing users including other Masters.
  • Grant Master access to Regular users.
  • Remove Master access from other Master users.
  • Modify access-type of other Regular users.
  • See, run and edit all scenarios including any unshared scenarios.
  • Rename rooms, home name and potentially device names.
  • Add new devices to their Kirio system.
  • Remove devices from their Kirio system.
  • Authenticate 3rd party systems like Alexa or Google Home.

Access-types defined for Regular users

Full: can connect from anywhere.

Local: can only connect to Kirio while on the same local WiFi.

Read-only: can connect to Kirio, but only see devices and their status. Any user with Read-only access cannot control any devices.

Master users always have Full access which allows them to fully manage the Kirio system from anywhere.
