Electronic Locks: The Solution to Home Rental Worries

Whether you’re renting out your home for the first time or you’re a seasoned Airbnb host, one issue remains: how do you keep your home secure while providing easy and short-term access to your guests?

Many hosts opt for providing their guests with a physical key to their home, via lockboxes located outside of their homes. Other hosts meet with their guests to personally hand them the keys. However, that leaves both hosts and guests open to a variety of issues, including lost keys and security breaches. And nobody wants to deal with those.

So, what is the solution then?

The answer is pretty simple: electronic locks.

Installing electronic locks on your home or rental property, such has the EMPowered Motorized Touchscreen Keypad SMART Baden Entry Set – Connected by August from Emtek, will provide a variety of home security benefits.

Think about it. You’d have the ability to program up to 25 unique entry codes. You can share access with friends and guests on your terms–meaning you decide when an entry code will be valid and for how long.

Monitoring activity and controlling the lock remotely is straightforward using the August Home App. You can even integrate your EMPowered Electronic Lock to work with Siri, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.

With EMPowered, you’ll now be able to provide your guests with unique entry codes that only work throughout the duration of their stay and will expire once they check out. Guests accidentally getting locked out will be a thing of the past, as you’ll be able to open the door for them remotely should they forget their code. Both parties covered.

So, what are you waiting for? Find out which electronic lock by Emtek is best for you and make sure to check out this article to read more on how to maximize the Airbnb integration features through the August App.

Happy hosting!
