A Smart Phone App that is Really Useful to Vacation Rentals

With a marketplace overflowing with pointless and useless mobile apps, it is so refreshing to come across some technology that is well thought and really smart.

With a gadget that fits on your existing door bolt, you can easily and 'cheaply' convert your door into an  intelligent access system that is controlled via an Android or iPhone app. This is the August smart lock.

  1. Wow! That's really interesting.
    Seems like you need to have a smart phone like and iPhone though, so the service may not be for everyone of your guests. HOw do you cope with that?

    Also, is August available for properties outside the US as well? Would cool to know more about that.

    Thanks for posting. Great tip.



  2. RoamingAround offers a similar solution called Mobile Key. RoamingAround has solved the problem Antonio points out above regarding the need for a "smart phone". Mobile Key works with any mobile phone because the Mobile Key solution is based on a dynamic tone (Crypto Acoustic Credential)retrieved from their server in real time. Mobile Key is also future proof as it has both RFID and NFC enabled. To learn more check them out at roamingaround.com.
