Zipato RFID Tag Reader



Just received the Zipato Mini RFID Keypad.
Now i have to create users and add Tags to this user.

Anyone knows how i add nfc tags to a user and use them in a flow?
(Mark USER as away/home)





When you are in the settings you have to toggle “Tag Approval” on in the advanced settings section. After that you can push “home” button on the keypad and hold the tag in front. It will then remember the tag. Afterwards you can create a user and associate the tag to the user. Remember to push the tag id number in the dropdown to ensure it is marked.

Remember to toggle the “Tag Approval” off again when you are finished.

I hope you will get it to work :wink:



How did you manage to install the Zipato RFID Keypad in Homey? It is not listed in the standard Zipato app…

Thx in advance

Thanks for the response. no luck so far :frowning:
I had only 1 number without tag working. (But i dont know how i did that one…)

Are there more users that have this problem?


I had the Benext tag reader BEnext Tag reader 500

I have tried everyting with that device. I think its practacally the same. Could get it working but only within 50 cm from homey. I returned IT to the supplier and they told me that the zipato was not compatible with homey so i have not even tried it.



Hello, I’ve received a Zipato RFID tag reader for Christmas !

I add thé device, add user and add it in flows to lock/unlock my Nuki ! It works great !

I’m trying now to use codes with it (no tag), how is it possible ?



Hi Julien,

It worked for me when 1 pushed : Home > Number > Enter (only for 1 number)
I am still struggeling with the TAG’s , Hope that there is more support in V2 for this device.

For now, i am not using it…


hello @SanderD

Thank you for your answer ! So the pin can not match with a specific user, is that correct ?


Ok I’ve tried and I was wrong, you can enter more than one pin code.

For the one who read this:

as @SanderD said, you have to push Home -> create your pin -> push Enter (the pin code (ID) is now created).

After, you have to go to your Zipato settings page (via Homey) and attribute this pin code to a User:


Great! And did you manage to get it working with the RFID tags also?


Yes “ID 1” is a RFID Tags and “ID 2” & “ID 3” are pin codes !


How did you manage to get the tags working?

I need to try it again now i know that it should be working…


Is this Zipato reader working with Homey 2.1.x version?
I have a Benext, but that one is not supported anymore on v2, app not updated (App not updated in 2 years)


At my side it is working.

Only battery status is not updating anymore. So if someone has a solution for it…
