Igloohome helps people manage their homes and properties through innovative technologies, and has created smart locks and keyboxes which allow the remote granting of access.
As Airbnb hosts, we were often inconvenienced by key handovers at awkward hours. So we rolled out our smart locks to happy short-term rental owners to help them with check-in issues.
We were announced as a preferred partner of Airbnb, and soon realised that many property owners were facing similar access management issues. We made our locks available to them too, so that they could benefit from the convenience of smart living.
Not long later, we launched the world’s first smart lockbox that works offline – the igloohome Smart Keybox. On top of that, we expanded our product range to include basic and premium locks – the Smart Deadbolt and Smart Mortise – and constantly improved them.
- Manage your property anywhere: Control is now in your hands. With our igloohome app, grant access to visitors even when you are away from home. Take your pick of our smart locks or keybox – our app manages all of them.
- Make home access safer and smarter: With igloohome, be assured that only the ones you welcome can enter your home. Time-sensitive PIN codes and bluetooth keys let you decide how long you want to allow access for.
- The convenience of smart living: No more lock-outs, and no more endless waiting for the handover of keys. If you’re an Airbnb host, we can even automate check-in and check-out for you.
- Reinventing smart access management: View and manage multiple igloohome devices on an intuitive and organised interface. The web dashboard is available for enterprises and industries to view insights, retrieve information with ease and manage access without the hassle.
PIN codes or bluetooth virtual keys can be created from the igloohome app so that friends/family/helpers can enter the owner’s home, even when he/she is not at home. This eliminates the need for key exchanges, saving time and effort to meet up, and provides the flexibility of control of the property even when the home owner is geographically distant. Home owners can also set the validity period of the PIN codes, so the house remains secure after the visitor leaves.
What makes our devices different is that they do not require internet connection. This means that home owners need not fret about internet disruptions or worry about WiFi hacking.
Beyond just being a smart lock, igloohome has built partnerships to enable services around it. Most notably, we have partnered Airbnb to help improve the hosting experiences for both the host and the guest. The integration with Airbnb means that our lock and app syncs up with Airbnb bookings. When a reservation on Airbnb is confirmed, igloohome automatically sends the guest a personalized 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.
