Schlage Announces Airbnb Smart Lock Platform Integration

Most Airbnb hosts with listings in the U.S. and Canada will have access to the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Lock Family within the Airbnb app.

CARMEL, Ind. Home security and access solutions provider Schlage, an Allegion brand, today announced that its smart lock integration with Airbnb is now live.

Through this integration, most Airbnb hosts with listings in the U.S. and Canada will have access to the industry-leading Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Lock Family directly within the Airbnb app, improving and simplifying entry and exit logistics for guests.

The new Schlage smart lock integration grants Airbnb Hosts control of the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt, Schlage Encode Plus Smart WiFi Deadbolt and the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Lever within the Airbnb app.

Hosts can now streamline the check-in and checkout process with automatically generated access codes for guests, removing the need to create unique codes for each visitor manually. Access codes will be shared with the guests at the time of booking—codes are only active during their trip—and are automatically deactivated after checkout.

Hosts can extend a guest’s reservation as needed in the Airbnb app, and the code will automatically update to remain active through the updated reservation length.

“Smart locks are uniquely suited to make life easier for people who rent their property on platforms like Airbnb because they eliminate the need for exchanging physical keys,” says Tim Eskew, senior manager of IoT partnerships at Schlage, in the company announcement.

“They provide a level of ease for both Hosts and guests, even when reservations need to be modified or canceled, and are generally safer than traditional door locks,” he says. “The added peace of mind and convenience will offer a huge benefit to Airbnb Hosts with listings in the U.S. and Canada.”
