With the key box, you have an easy life!

What is it?

In two words, the key box is the safe for your keys. 😎
It’s where you can be sure that the keys to your accommodation will be kept in a safe place.
Yes, you know exactly what we’re talking about, that safe well hidden in your room when you were a kid, where you put all your little secrets, your little coins and big bills, that no one but you could access… Well, there it is the same! 😁

Thanks to a code-protected lock, you can stop hiding your keys in the flower pot or under the doormat and put them safely without worries! 😉

The advantages of a key box

In addition to being convenient and secure, it has many advantages for your hosting keys:

  • Helps prevent key loss 👍
  • Limits the risk of key theft 💪
  • Accessible at any time 😄

How does it work?

It is usually attached to a wall outside with screws.

Once you have it installed, all you need to do is create a combination of at least a 4-digit code to increase the possibilities and limit forcing. 💪

And bang, you just have to communicate the code of the box to your tenants who will be able to retrieve the keys easily and access your accommodation 😉

Choosing a key box

The degree of security

And yes, the first thing we look at is the security of course!
Protecting your keys is the main goal, some models protect better than others, like all products 😉 and the little extra is that depending on the security level you choose, you will have even more resistance to forcing. 😁

Maybe your accommodation is located in a humid area where it is often cold, rainy, snowy…

So think about choosing your key box according to its waterproofness where it will resist to the weather and protect the content from rain water, snow… 🔥

Storage capacity

If you have multiple keys, you’ll need a box large enough to hold all your precious keys. 😁

Their storage capacity can be different depending on the model 😉


The price of a key box

They are easily found as in DIY stores, in stores specializing in the sale of security devices for homes, for example, safes or alarms, and of course, you always have the opportunity to order your key box on the internet. 🚀

Its price depends above all on the degree of security chosen, it can go from :

  • 10 to 15€ for an entry-level key box 😁
  • 20 to 30€ for a metal model, with a decorative shape and which can be equipped with a digicode 😉
  • 50 to more than 100€ for a secure key box that can hold more than 100 keys and is intended for professional use 😄

So, ready to keep your keys safe in a key box?

Key exchange: MyLoby simplifies Airbnb key exchange!

Rental management Airbnb, it’s quite a job! While some people use concierge services to put up their property for rent and maintain them, the majority of Airbnb rental owners manage their own properties themselves. And beyond the maintenance of the rental, one of the most tedious tasks of Airbnb management is the key handover stage. We wanted to come back to it together in this article and explain to you how MyLoby revolutionizes key management for Airbnb owners!

Airbnb rental key management:

an ordeal for the owners!

If there is one thing that many Airbnb rental owners find painful to deal with on a daily basis, it is the issue of handover the keys.

Whether it is at the arrival of the vacationers or at their departure, the handing-over of keys often implies the presence of the owner to entrust then receive the set of keys. However, when they are prevented from doing so, some owners have to find ways to hand over their keys. This is how some Airbnb rental owners find themselves hiding their sets of keys under the doormat or the flower pots, thus putting their accommodation at risk. Fortunately for them, companies such as MyLoby are here to help !

MyLoby, an innovative start-up

that simplifies key management!

Indeed, MyLoby is revolutionary in the market of Airbnb seasonal rental. Developed around a mobile application and a network of relay points throughout France, MyLoby allows homeowners to avoid having to go to the property to hand over the keys to their Airbnb guests. How does it work? Thanks to an innovative guarding system whose complete process is described below.

Step 1: You download the MyLoby application
As a homeowner, you download the MyLoby application and subscribe to the service.

Step 2: find the nearest drop-off point to your Airbnb rental
So that your Airbnb guests don’t have to look for your keys too far away, you look for the nearest drop-off point. All you have to do is drop off your spare keys at this relay point and tell your guests that they have to download the MyLoby app to pick up your spare keys at this same relay point.

Step 3: Share the flashcode associated with your key set with your Airbnb hosts
They will then be able to authenticate themselves at the relay point and pick up your set of keys. The owner will then be notified of this authenticated pickup and will know that his key set has been picked up by his hosts. Note that the MyLoby relay is not a classic relay point, the shopkeeper takes the time to welcome and advise your guests during their stay. It’s a complete key delivery service!

How much

the service MyLoby cost?

Are you convinced of the usefulness of the MyLoby service to simplify your key delivery? You should know that the Myloby service is available from 3€ per month and per set of keys to Airbnb rental owners. However, if you are likely to receive a lot of Airbnb guests per month, you can turn to the MyLoby premium offer at 20€ per month and per set of keys, with an unlimited number of guests and key withdrawals. This makes it ideal for large Airbnb rental managers, but also for large families who are short on key sets, or if you hire a home cleaning company to maintain your apartment or Airbnb rental.

Either way, we highly recommend this MyLoby service. It’s really the ideal way to simplify your management and key delivery. And on top of that, it saves precious time, time you can spend on other activities, while staying informed in real time of the drop off or pick up of your keys in your MyLoby relay point.
