The RemoteLock integration in Hostfully allows property managers to automate the creation of pin-codes for vacation rental travellers. The system will be able to automatically grant guest access to a property, just for the duration of the stay.
You will need an active RemoteLock account and at least one activated RemoteLock smart lock before being able to use the integration.
Step 1: activating the RemoteLock integration
Start by heading to Hostfully's Integration Zone and activate the RemoteLock integration by simply toggling its on/off button. Once the RemoteLock popup comes up, just click on the Connect button.
Step 2: Authorize Hostfully's platform access
After clicking on the Connect button above, you will be redirected to your RemoteLock account. If you're not logged in, please log in, then click on the Authorize button to grant platform access to your account:
After your click Authorize, you will be redirected to Hostfully.
Step 3: mapping your lock to a property on Hostfully
Back on Hostfully's Integration page, click on the Settings link next to the RemoteLock toggle button:
This will show the property-to-lock mapping page. From the Select a Lock drop-down box, select the RemoteLock smart lock you want to map to a particular property, and click the Connect button next to it:
Once the mapping is done, you're pretty much done with the set up.
Now, let the system do its magic
With this being set up, Hostfully will automatically create PIN codes for each guest when a booking is created for the properties mapped to the RemoteLock.
Pin codes will be a random 6-digit long code, and the code will be valid for the duration of the stay. As per RemoteLock's scheduling scheme, the codes become inactive at check-out time.
Whenever a code is created by the system, it will be visible on the booking window, on the Stay Details tab, as below:
If you use the RemoteLock mobile app, the new created guest and its associated pin code will automatically show under the GUEST USERS section:
