There are lots of Gold Coast locksmiths, but none of them are as experienced or offer as much variety as we do here at Terry’s Lock and Security Solutions.
If you operate an Airbnb, having the right alarm and locking system is vital. That’s where smart locks come into the picture.
This technology is ideal for the rental market and ensures that you don’t have house keys out there where they could fall into the wrong hands.
Want to know more? Here are the basics when it comes to smart locks.
What is a Smart Lock?
One of the hardest parts about operating a rental property is that it can be difficult to hand keys to your guests or get them back.
A smart lock eliminates this step in the process, making it easy for any of your tenants to get into the house without a key.
Installing such a system on your Airbnb makes the house more secure and allows you to let guests in even if you haven’t physically handed them a key.
How Does it Work?
One of the best things about a smart lock is that you don’t need a key to use it. Instead, the system is operated using a smartphone app or code that you can share with only the people you want to have it.
Then, once your guests have left, you can change the code so they aren’t able to get back in or share it with anyone else.
The smart lock connects to your home’s Wi-Fi network and will alert you if you or someone else has left the home without locking up.
Benefits of a Smart Lock
As mentioned above, a smart lock eliminates the need for a physical key, which is handy if you run an Airbnb.
However, there are other benefits as well. A keyless entry system gives you control over who can get in and out and when they have access.
If you ever worry about the security of your home, you can simply change the smart lock’s code to restrict entrance.
A smart lock system can integrate with other smart home systems, including other security systems.
Your home is also more secure with a keyless lock because you won’t have to stash a spare somewhere that could be found by an intruder.
Plus, you’ll never have to worry about getting locked out again.
