Smart locks have become a game-changer for Airbnb owners, providing both security and convenience in one product. It's not just about improving the customer experience, but also making the life of Airbnb business owners easier. In this article we will discuss why smart locks are the perfect solution for Airbnb owners before giving you our top recommended product for the Airbnb environment.
Why use a smart lock?
With a smart lock, guests can easily access the property using a unique code or even their smartphone, eliminating the need for physical keys. This reduces the risk of lost or stolen keys and provides peace of mind and a smooth experience for both the guest and the owner.
In addition to enhanced security, smart locks also offer aesthetic appeal. They come in various designs and finishes, adding a modern touch to the property. Moreover, smart locks can be integrated with other smart home devices, such as cameras and alarms, to provide a complete security system. You can view our range of smart locks which includes a variety of smart locks for a range of environments.
From a business perspective, smart locks save time and money. Owners can remotely control access to the property, eliminating the need for physical check-ins and key exchanges. This frees up time for other important tasks and reduces the risk of human error.
The best smart lock for Airbnb?
When it comes to choosing a smart lock product for Airbnb properties, it can be overwhelming and daunting. Overtime, we have tested different smart locks within the Airbnb environment to provide you with our smart lock of choice for Airbnb.
While, with correct installation and management both the smart lever and deadbolt product ranges can be used in Airbnb environments, we highly recommend the smart lever range of Bluetooth locks.
Smart lever locks are similar in their function to standard levers with the added benefit of a variety of smart unlock methods including fingerprint, custom pin code, smart phone and fobs. In Airbnb environments we have found that auto-locking and easy latching is an important feature to mitigate security breaches. These features are found within the smart lever range. Whilst smart deadbolts have the ability to auto-lock too, there can be a degree of security risk as the deadbolt can auto-lock without the door being in the closed position.
In Airbnb environments, as the home owner, you aren't there to oversee that the door has been closed and secured properly every time the door is unlocked. Deadbolts must be correctly aligned in the locked position in order to trigger the bolt to lock. Whereas smart levers will lock automatically after the designated lock time, by using the lever lock in addition to a door closer, this will ensure that your Airbnb property is secured.
At Corporate Locksmiths, we stock a wide variety of smart lock levers which provide a solution for a wide variety of environments suiting different back sets. To view our range of smart lever locks click here.

They provide a seamless experience for guests and simplify the lives of business owners. With the added benefits of time and cost savings, it's easy to see why smart locks are a must-have for any Airbnb property.
