Open by Phone Call
Once your guest reaches your apartment he/she will ring the intercom. You will immediately receive a phone call from the intercom which will allow you to communicate with the guest. By pressing 5 on your phone’s keypad you will then be able to open the building door, and by pressing 8 you will be able to open the apartment door.
Open by App
Your guest will contact you as soon as he/she reaches your apartment (via Whatsapp or by calling you directly on your phone). At this point you can open your App, click on “Open Building Door” to open the building door and on “Open Door” to open the apartment door.
Once you have created a new reservation on your personal Vikey Dashboard, your guest will receive an automated email informing him/her of the system and sending a personal reservation key. With the reservation key your guest will be able to access the App and open both the building and the apartment door in complete autonomy for the duration of the stay (only for guests with 3G/free roaming).
