Whether you manage a vacation rental home from afar in another state or a busy property manager overseeing hundreds of homes locally and keeping tabs on physical keys can be time-consuming and difficult.
For those looking to remotely control access from your smartphone, orchestrate workflows, or enhance the safety of your rental properties, smart locks can provide solitude.

There hasn’t been a better time than now to explore the operational efficiencies afforded with smart home technology in Virginia. Smart devices not only offer convenience but are in high demand from renters and make your property stand out.
Your front door gets a lot of traffic. Packing a punch, here are three ways smart locks bring you both versatility and value.
1. Resolve Guest Problems, Remotely
There’s nothing worse than the guest experiencing a maintenance problem during their stay. A smart lock allows property managers to resolve common problems quickly by granting access to service providers in the event a leak has sprung or the HVAC unit went out.
For property managers, a keyless entry system offers peace of mind. If a guest loses or forgets their access code, property managers can remotely send the guest a secondary access code saving you the hassle of needing to send a physical key to the vacation house.
For guests, they can easily contact the property management company for access if they forgot their code. The staff at the property management company can either remotely unlock the door for them or reassign a new code that is more memorable.
2. Increased Guest Satisfaction
A smart lock enables guests to skip the lines at the rental office. Excited vacationers who arrived early can now be notified by phone or email to let them know the home is ready for occupancy, and receive a keycode by text versus having to wait for a physical key.
To check out at the end of their stay, guests simply enter the keycode provided into the door’s smart lock to check out. This smart action will automatically trigger for the smart thermostat to readjust, the property’s smart home security system to arm, and send the property management company a notification letting them know the guests have vacated and the home is ready for maintenance teams.
3. Increased Safety, Decreased Costs
Save money while safeguarding properties and guests with smart locks. Physical keys get lost, are difficult to track, and having to make replacement keys can be a pain. An alternative, keyless locks offer a safe and convenient way for guests to come and go.
A smart keyless entry system makes it easy to track who’s been coming and going from each vacation rental property. Smart locks are also a convenient option when needing multiple cleaning, inspection, and maintenance teams to enter and leave properties.
