I’m considering a lock box with a combination for storing keys outside my the front door of my apartment block. This will mostly be used by cleaners but also guests on the few occasions I won’t be able to greet them. Anyone can recommend a particular model that they used first hand? Thanks.
We are using this model
What about a keypad instead where guests can punch in a code? I used to have a lock box but guests would put the keys back in and not close the box properly.
A keypad is not possible as this is an apartment block and I can’t change the lock on the front door.
If you can’t fit the lock to the walls - say because of apartment restrictions, the below lock might come in handy.
If the door is auto-lock, ie, no need to use the key while exiting, the guests can leave the keys inside the flat rather than putting it back in the lockbox?
I would be wary of having an auto-lock door on an Airbnb listing. Guests excel at locking themselves out.
