August Home a Smart Way to unlock airbnb

The whole reservation process and the payment for Airbnb accommodation is done online – but to access the rented apartment, you still need to pick up a key. August Home Inc., provider of smart, secure front door solutions, has come up with a smart solution.

When a reservation is made for a property equipped with an August Smart Lock and August Smart Keypad, the software will automatically generate a custom personal entry code for the specific dates and times of the reservation. Hosts do not need to make copies of physical keys and coordinate meeting times to hand over and retrieve them, or provide guests with instructions on how to access the physical keys in a remote lockbox.

Hosts can choose to use a custom PIN code that is automatically generated when an Airbnb reservation is made, give mobile phone access via the August app, or provide both of these options. Guests who reserve a property equipped with August products will receive an e-mail with all necessary information on how to open the apartment – reservation changes or cancellations automatically change the access times and days. When the reservation ends, access to the property automatically ends.
