Smart locks are great for giving guests access to your space without having to bother with physical keys. But you absolutely must have a spare key somewhere guests can access it.

For whatever the reason – the smart lock isn’t working, guests can’t figure out how to operate it, guests locked themselves out somehow (yes, all of those have happened to me!) – you need to have a backup way for guests to get inside.

Backup lockboxes are a MUST have!

The easiest, simplest way to do this is to have a lock box with a spare key inside.

This is also great because it’s much more secure than some other methods, such as hiding the key in the flowerpot on the front porch :).
