Host Tools integrates with August locks and any smart lock that connects to the SmartThings hub by using Rboy’s Rental Lock Automator (RLA) software. This includes almost all Zigbee and Z-wave-enabled locks.
There are lots of Smart Locks out there so it can be overwhelming to choose one. This is the August lock we personally use on all of our listings. This lock is easy to use, and integrates perfectly with Host Tools. We also like that it saves guest codes with check-in and check-out times on the lock. This means that if the power goes out, or if your property loses internet, guests can still enter your rental. Additionally, you can program the smart lock to automatically lock the door when closed so you don’t have to worry about guests forgetting to lock up. The lock will also notify your phone when the battery is running low.
