Schlage Keyless Entry
Keyless entry door lock systems are ubiquitous in modern high rises today, such as hotels and commercial buildings. But residential smart locks that enable keyless entry for single-family homes and vacation properties are just hitting their stride in terms of adoption. This article covers how homeowners and vacation rental property managers can add keyless entry to their portfolio of services using a Schlage Keyless Entry solution.
What is Keyless Entry?
First, what is keyless entry? Keyless entry is the ability to access a physical space without using a physical, permanent key. All keyless entry systems today rely in some way on a combination of hardware and software to enable access. Most people experience keyless entry solutions today in hotels, commercial buildings, and corporate offices, where magnetic stripe cards, RFID chipped badges or biometric sensors are typical methods of authorizing access to a room or office space. For residential properties, smart locks are a primary method for enabling keyless entry.
Why use keyless entry door locks for my vacation property?
If you've operated a vacation property for any length of time, then you know the guest arrival and check-in process is the most important and impressionable—and frequently the most hectic—time of a guest's stay. Your guests will develop their first impression of your property within 15 minutes of check-in. Easily access to the property is one of the most important factors in that first impression. Just as important as the guest impression is reservation and scheduling efficiency. Keyless entry door locks allow hosts and property managers to address both by digitizing the access to a property with electronic pin codes and app-driven door lock/unlock control.
