This hadith is narrated  by Imam Nasaaie in his Sunan al- Kubra

قال الإمام النسائي رحمه الله في " السنن الكبرى  :
أَخْبَرَنَا الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ بِشْرٍ ، بِطَرَسُوسَ ، كَتَبْنَا عَنْهُ قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حِمْيَرٍ قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ ، عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ( مَنْ قَرَأَ آيَةَ الْكُرْسِيِّ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ مَكْتُوبَةٍ لَمْ يَمْنَعْهُ مِنْ دُخُولِ الْجَنَّةِ إِلَّا أَنْ يَمُوتَ )

“ Whoever recites Ayahtul- Kursi after each Fardh Salah, nothing stops him from entering Jannah except death”[1]

This hadith is also narrated by Tabari in his Mujamal-Kabeer number 7532 and Ibn-Sunni in his amalul-yoom wa layla number 124

رَوَاهُ النَّسَائِيّ وَالطَّبَرَانِيّ بأسانيد أَحدهَا صَحِيح
وَقَالَ شَيخنَا أَبُو الْحسن هُوَ على شَرط البُخَارِيّ وَابْن حبَان فِي كتاب الصَّلَاة وَصَححه

Imam Nasaaie and Imam Tabarani have narrated this hadith with one of the chains being authentic. Our teacher Abu Hasan said this hadith is authentic on the condition of Al-Bukhari. Ibn Hibban has also narrated the hadith and has said it is Saheeh.[2]

Also Ibn kathir said is his Tafsir regarding this hadith

فَهُوَ إِسْنَادٌ عَلَى شَرْطِ الْبُخَارِيِّ

“It is on the condition of Bukhari”[3]

Also Hafiz Ibn Hajar in  his book  الكافي الشاف في تخريج أحاديث الكشاف said the chain of this hadith is Saheeh[4]

Also Imam Suyooti said “ its Saheeh on the condition of Bukhari “[5]

So in summary this hadith is reliable according to the scholars of hadiths.

Only Allah Knows best.
