SentriConnect® Mobile App Guide for Temporary Lockbox Access
– SentriConnect® is a managed access system that allows a SentriLock lockbox owner to grant time-limited access to their lockbox providing accurate and detailed access information to the lockbox owner. SentriConnect is a free service to its users providing security and dependability to our SentriLock lockbox subscribers.
– SentriConnect® must be enabled by the listing agent’s Association before it can be used. Plus, it works only on Bluetooth® lockboxes with firmware version 50.44 or higher. The lockbox must be assigned to a listing in order to grant SentriConnect® access.
– SentriConnect® is a mobile app that enables someone to access the key compartment of your lockbox without having the SentriKey® Real Estate app. However, you, the listing Agent, must grant permission for someone to use SentriConnect® to access your lockbox. If you’re inviting a user who is not a registered SentriConnect® user, they’ll receive an invitation to register them.
– SentriConnect® accesses to a lockbox’s key compartment are displayed in the listing Agent’s lockbox access log. This allows secure tracking of lockbox activity.
How to Set Up SentriConnect®
- The listing agent will grant SentriConnect access to the user, which will prompt an email invitation to download the SentriConnect App to be sent to any first-time user of SentriConnect. (Existing users will simply receive a notification within the SentriConnect App Message Center.)
- The user will need to install the SentriConnect App from their phone’s app store
- Once downloaded, launch the SentriConnect mobile app
- Be sure to Allow SentriConnect to find, connect to, and determine the relative position of nearby devices when prompted and ensure Bluetooth is enabled.
- Tap the create account button
- Enter the required information for registration
- When you are finished registering, an email will be sent to you to complete the registration process. You must open the email on your mobile device to activate your account.
- This is a one-time registering process, so once you have created an account, you will not need to register again.
