Connect your igloohome locks with Airbnb

Connect with Airbnb

Imagine not having to lift a finger to grant your Airbnb guests access! Airbnb Connect is a seamless integration that allows Airbnb hosts to synchronize their listing calendars with their igloohome locks. Unique PIN codes are automatically generated and sent to guests based on the time and length of stay.

How does it work?

  1. After each successful booking is made on your Airbnb listing, igloohome will assign a unique PIN Code to the lock for the booking dates.

  2. Prior to the check-in date and time, the guest will receive an email from igloohome containing the PIN Code. This email can be configured via the app to go out at a set number of hours prior to the check-in date and time. The default is set at 1 hour.

  3. To ensure security, the PIN code will only work for the length of the stay and needs to be activated within 24 hours of the check-in time and date.

  4. When it’s time for check-out, the PIN Code is automatically deactivated - giving the host, as well as subsequent guests, peace of mind.

How easy is it to set up?

Every igloohome lock can be connected to your Airbnb listing. Activating this service is simple, it's all done through the igloohome mobile app.

Step 1: Link your Airbnb account to the igloohome app

Step 2: Add your Airbnb listing

Step 3: Set up your access preferences

And you’re done!

What other benefits are there?

Getting a smart lock is an ultimate time-saver for any Airbnb host, as well as their guests. The experience of seamless and reliable checking in will delight anyone, and encourages higher star ratings from your guests.

In addition, smart locks also ensure higher security as guests do not need to worry about misplacing keys, or if past occupants would be able to access the house. Furthermore, you can even manage your rental remotely and do not have to meet anyone for check-in.
