Smart Garage Door Lock for Airbnb

Want to let your guests easily park in your garage? With this solution, Guests can just input a code on a keypad to open and close your garage door.

No garage door remote is required. No more guests accidentally driving off with your garage door opener!

Supplies

Garage Setup

Follow the instructions provided with the Garage Door Opener Controller to install it.

Registration

Register on Aurmur. Aurmur will treat the Keypad the same as a smart lock. It will integrate with Airbnb and manage codes for your guests.

Follow the setup instructions provided in the online Aurmur registration instructions to register for a SmartThings account and connect your hub.
Pair the Keypad and Garage Door Opener Contoller with your hub. Then, share your SmartThings location with Aurmur.

Back in the SmartThings App, in the Automation menu, create a condition that if the Keypad is locked, close your Garage Door. If the Keypad is unlocked, open your Garage Door.

Backup

The normal locks we use hold the code in memory so continue to work even if there is no power or internet. This system is reliant on both internet and power though.

We recommend still having lockbox which has a garage door opener for backup. If the Smart system isn’t working, you can give guests a code for the lockbox, and they can use garage door opener inside instead.
