RemoteLock from LockState will integrate with Airbnb’s Host Assist program
The new lock is WiFi enabled and is capable of having temporary codes for guests.
This is not really a new feature, most smart locks have some kind of temporary access system in place, but RemoteLock integrates with Airbnb to automatically assign a code to a traveler, set it to activate when the traveler is expected to arrive, and set it to turn off when a traveler leaves.
The lock does not come cheap, it will cost you $499 if you want it, and the Airbnb integration will cost you another $1/month.
While the $1/month is hardly the end of the world, it does seem like there are other options for people who cannot great their guests like manually setting a code before a visitor arrives on a less expensive WiFi lock.
Still, if you’re an Airbnb host this product may be worth a look.
