How does the guest know which SMS to use? Where does he send the SMS?

It is not mandatory to install the APP. The codes are created and provided by you and can be used directly on the keypad or by SMS.

Is using the homeit system safe?

All our equipment uses secure communication protocols with our homeit system. All data transmitted between the homeit system, the homeit BOX and Bluetooth devices, such as locks and keypads, are encrypted and authenticated. We guarantee maximum security of the data we store, user permissions and access to properties. Outside of the equipment configuration process, which we support, only the user himself has the power to open and manage the keys to his properties. Our systems are regularly audited to ensure their smooth operation. The safety of the entire system is our highest priority.
