How to Secure Your Locks for Airbnb
Airbnb is an excellent source of income for renters, and is well worth it for those who need reasonably priced accommodations. From the host’s perspective, there are several things to consider before renting out the property. One big element is the guests’ entry and exit part of the process. With deadbolt locks, hosts have to either meet up with their guests, or arrange a pickup/drop off time, in order to give and retrieve the keys to their property. Even if that goes over smoothly, keys can easily be misplaced or lost during or after your guests’ stay. And if that wasn’t enough of a hassle, what is to say a previous guest did not make a copy of the key and store it away for a rainy day? While a deadbolt is a traditional form of securing your property - it may no longer be the best one. With technological advancements, keyless entry is slowly becoming the new norm for most people - especially those who are property renters. Not just because it is most ideal for them, but also for their guests. It allows people to bypass a potentially messy encounter, where one party is late - where the host is unprepared, or where the guest has lost (or has duplicated) the key. Keypad locks are a top solution to an age-old problem - for one simple reason: convenience. However, that is not to say all keypad locks are made the same. In fact, the quality of a keypad lock boils down to its installation, the type of security it offers, and obviously its ease of management. Anything beyond that is just a bonus. Let’s examine closely the best ways to secure your locks for Airbnb.
