New “smart lock” solution available from LockState



Smart lock maker LockState has just released the RemoteLock 5i, a WiFi controlled smart lock available in deadbolt or lever options. The keypad door lock is the perfect solution for Airbnb and vacation rental properties, multi-family and residential properties, or office buildings.

Smart Lock

The RemoteLock 5i is the second generation of the LockState IoT connected WiFi door locks for these markets. Using Ayla Networks IoT platform and cloud services, RemoteLock 5i delivers many new upgrades and features to manage properties remotely. Working directly with the property’s existing WiFi (no gateway required), doors can be monitored and managed through the web portal or smart phone apps.

RemoteLock Works Directly With Airbnb

LockState’s smart locks are one of the first solutions to be available to hosts on the Airbnb Host Assist program. They allow Airbnb hosts to remotely manage one or many rental properties through the direct integration between the Airbnb booking and the LockState Connect device management platform. Thousands of guest codes have been created by existing RemoteLock users to manage short-term rentals on platforms like Airbnb, HomeAway/VRBO, and other booking sites.

Multi-Family/Multi-Use Properties

The RemoteLock 5i is already in use at multiple apartment buildings and vacation rental properties. Property owners and management companies monitor and assign access through a keyless environment using the permissions options through the LockState Connect web portal.

RemoteLock users can provide codes for multiple doors throughout their property including: permanent or temporary access to resident/guest units; common areas like pools, gyms, or laundry rooms; and front door entry ways using cloud-based RemoteLock ACS Systems from LockState.

Office Buildings and Small Business

RemoteLock 5i allows users to lock or unlock doors remotely, know when people use doors, and receive text alerts when codes are used. Issue new codes or delete codes through a computer or phone via the LockState Connect web portal. Give temporary codes to service or office personnel. Even set schedules with times that certain staff can use the doors.

RemoteLock also works with Ring Video Doorbells so businesses can see who is at their door with Ring and conveniently open the smart lock with LockState’s app.

Other features of the RemoteLock 5i include:

  • Available in multiple colors and body styles
