At last, a perfect solution for holiday homes, Air-BnB and other remote settings where user-codes need to be generated on-the-fly, without having to physically go and program the codes in on-location! And what's more, it's incredibly cheap to run. While many systems will charge hefty subscriptions and also rely on reliable wifi connection at the property, this system does not require internet at the property, and costs just 14p per guest which is absolutely fantastic value for money.
The British manufacturer CodeLock have produced this revolutionary combination door lock which can be managed via a smart phone app both on Android and iPhone devices. This is done via BlueTooth initially; but from then on, using universal time-synchronisation, you can issue specific time and duration access codes to guests without having to connect to the lock at all! What's more, the lock features an audit trail system, so you are able to connect to the lock at any time and download a historic event log of all access usage.
This means that there are no wires, no internet connection required at the property, and no location limitations. Using the NetCode functionality built into the lock, you can issue codes without connecting to the lock, via an app on your phone. The way this works is that when you first synchronise the lock with your phone, it downloads a universal timestamp to the lock, and from then on it will keep perfect time. Then, whenever you want to generate a code for a guest, your phone will connect to the same universal time server and generate a unique code based on the timestamp and duration of stay that you have entered into the app.
When the guest then enters this code, the NetCode system within the lock validates the number against the current universal time data in the lock; and if the inner matrix determines that the current time adds up with the given code; it will allow access.
Once the period of time selected when generating the code has expired, the code will no longer work; so it will not require deleting or suspending in any way.
This innovative technology makes these combination locks perfect for holiday homes and rentals; where you wish to apply remotely programmable access control without having to re-mortgage the house just to facilitate the changing of codes!
The lock also offers a whole host of other features; including adding up to 100 permanent or temporary codes manually; as well as issuing up to 150 user access cards and even letting users choose their own codes with the Guest Code function; or indeed having periods of open-hours whereby the lock will go into idle passage mode to allow free access. But the real genius is in the above NetCode system which opens avenues of generating unique codes without visiting the property not previously done with ease like you now can with this lock.
