It’s easy to get locked out of your house. You forget your keys and close the door before it’s too late or maybe you’ve lost them altogether. Most people try and hide a spare key somewhere on the property, but you always run the risk of someone finding it and breaking it into your home. You can always give a key to a neighbor for safekeeping, but what if they’re not around when you’re locked out? These are all scenarios that people have experienced at one point or another, but luckily today there’s technology that solves all of your problems.
Whether you’re looking for a safe way to keep your spare key safe or want an easier way to control who has access to your home, this lock box by Master Lock is exactly what you’re looking for. No longer have those fake, empty rocks to put your spare key in (they stick out more than they blend in) and instead choose a safe way to keep your key right by your door.
The best part about this lock is that it can mount to the wall or anywhere else, so you can have it right there by your front door for easy access for yourself and for others. But although the key is inside, it’s completely locked and can only be opened by using a specific code or key card.
What makes this lock really revolutionary and far more modern, is the way you can grant access and monitor your lock right from your smartphone on the app. You can schedule guest access days (great if you’re using your home as an Airbnb or anything similar), grant your neighbor access or give permanent access to other members of your family.
Through the app, you can also view the lock history, including guest additions and deletions, when it was unlocked, opened and relocked. This is great to monitor the use and if people are using it as they should and acts as a secondary security measure.
It also comes with tamper-proof measures. After so many unsuccessful keypad attempts, it will trigger email and app notifications to let you know what’s going on. While it’s possible someone you have granted access to has just inputted it incorrectly, there’s also a far greater chance it’s someone trying to break in.
You can also gain access to the lock through Bluetooth if you’re within range. This lock box is such a great idea and perfect for family member’s who always forget keys or even to ensure access if you have a pet sitter. It’s durable, it’s safe and it works so much better than the other options. At just over $117, it’s great value for something you only have to pay one time and have for forever.
Never worry about spare keys again.
