igloohome Smart Keybox

Feb. 16, 2017

igloohome has created a world's 1st smart lockbox, and it even works offline. It solves access issues for short-term rental hosts, and home or property owners. The igloohome Smart Keybox is designed to provide 24-hour access to a property, even when the host or owner is away. Keys or keycards are stored inside for visitors to retrieve when they arrive at the property. It can be unlocked via PIN code or bluetooth key, which can be generated by the host or owner via mobile app from anywhere in the world.

This means that hosts and property owners no longer need to arrange for meet-ups to hand the keys over to their guests. This saves time and effort, and makes it much more convenient for check-in in the wee hours of the morning, or visits when the owner is not around. The host or property owner is also able to remotely select how long each PIN code or bluetooth key is valid for, be it hours, days or weeks, to ensure that security of the property is maintained after the guest leaves.

No internet required

What makes the Keybox even smarter is that despite its remote capabilities, it works offline. The technology behind its PIN codes is similar to that of the internet banking token, involving cryptography and synchronisation. This differentiates the igloohome Keybox from most other smart devices, which are dependent on Wifi. Without the need for internet, the reliability of the Keybox is increased. It is perfect for deployment in properties for sale or rent where Wifi is not set up, or in areas with weak/no signal.

Technology of a smart lock, but without the need for installation

Similar technology has been used in igloohome’s earlier product - the igloohome Smart Lock - which has seen sales increase exponentially since launch. But the lockbox does not require installation, and instead can be easily secured on firm structures such as railings or door handles. This makes it suitable for those who have doors which are incompatible with the igloohome Smart Lock or are hesitant to permanently alter their door.

As a preferred partner of Airbnb, igloohome can integrate an Airbnb host’s calendar with their igloohome account for a monthly fee (ater 90 days free trial), so that generation of PIN codes for guests can be automated. This service is optional, and is intended not to remove the personal touch from Airbnb, but to provide greater convenience for the property management.

Beyond Airbnb, the lockbox is relevant in many other scenarios. Co-founder of igloohome Walter Wang shares, “The Keybox can be used by real estate agents to let different clients into properties for viewing, by staff on shift in the office, or even by homeowners to store their keys as a back-up. There is huge potential for the Keybox.” Re-shaping mindsets about access CEO of igloohome Anthony Chow says, “We want to re-shape how people think about access, and help build up the sharing economy.”
