Being a predominantly AirBnB host I'm sure I'm in the minority of Ownerrez users but after trying several options for *good looking* contemporary locks that would automate codes to my guests I've settled and been very pleased with igloohome locks. What I especially like about them is that they do not require a communication protocol to function or generate codes past their initial set up via bluetooth. This helps preserve battery life and doesn't leave you needing to use a Z-Wave or Zigbee hub, guests to download apps to enter or even a WiFi connection to operate. Once your AirBnB listing is assigned to the lock it algorithmically generates a code for the guest utilizing the dates of their stay.

It would be great if Ownerrez could provide the listing details which would allow ownerrez users to use these locks to automatically generate codes across multiple OTA's.

Pedro, thanks for the suggestion! Do you know if igloohome has an API or provides access to third party apps? I took a look and it looks like it works similar to ResortLock and eRL where there is no internet connection necessary. If that's the case, we should be able to add it as a supported lock type to our Door Lock integrations. Then, OwnerRez would generate the codes automatically as part of the booking, talking to the ingloohome API. If you're a customer of theirs, reach out and see if they have developer docs they will share. Thanks again for the suggestion.

I'm actually very excited by your post. I reached out to my main contact there: Matthe Ng. He said they do offer API's and a few other things that are over my head. He asked I pass along his contact info:
matthewng@igloohome.co

Please do keep me updated if this moves forward at all. Appreciate it.

Great! I reached out to Matthew to see what the path forward for the API would be.

Is that an algorithmic lock like erentallock? erentallock already integrates.

Yes, it's time based like eRL.

I am not sure what "good looking" means when it comes to locks. In my book reliability is the most important. . I have 3 erentallocks, they use couple of Schlage models each in 3 different finishes. I used non motorized version because as you said it preserves the battery. Mine are BE 365 type. very reliable.
