Smart access for vacation rental hosts
Airbnb is an online community marketplace that connects people looking to rent their properties with those seeking accommodation. The platform leverages on technology to empower people to monetise their space, and allows for a travel experience that’s local and authentic.
Airbnb hosts do face the frustrations of the inconvenience of physical key exchanges, especially when guests wanted to check in at odd hours. Management of access can be tricky especially when hosts are doing Airbnb on the side with full-time jobs.
What we did for them
- Eliminate issues with key exchanges.
- Improve security of the host’s property.
- Automate check-ins for guests.
We are a preferred partner of Airbnb, and are recommended under ‘Host Assist’.
We can integrate the generation of PIN codes with an Airbnb host's calendar. After a reservation on Airbnb is confirmed, igloohome automatically sends the guest a personalised PIN code to enter the host's property. When the guest checks out, the PIN code is automatically deactivated, giving the host peace of mind.
Hosts can set the validity period of the PIN codes or Bluetooth keys, each time securing the property after use.
They also work offline, making it suitable for properties with weak or no Wi-Fi and negates the risk of Wi-Fi hacking.
