New Lockbox Tech Will Revolutionize How Local REALTORS® Show Properties

June 1, 2020

Huntsville, ON – Local REALTORS® will be showcasing listings this busy spring season with a new tool that will improve security, efficiency, and client satisfaction. Smart, Bluetooth-compatible lockboxes will be replacing the conventional mechanical lockboxes that agents have been using for the last 30 years.

These new smart systems will ease many of the security and communication concerns sellers have about lockboxes with static passcodes. These new devices feature state-of-the-art technology that allow REALTORS® who work in the Lakelands districts to elevate the level of service and protection they can offer clients in Haliburton, Muskoka, Orillia and Parry Sound. This new program is a partnership with SentriLock LLC, which currently provides services to over 400,000 REALTORS® in North America, and over 30,000 REALTORS® in Canada.

“Our local REALTOR® members are hard-working and fully committed to consistently growing professionally,” says Lakelands Association of REALTORS® Board President Catharine Inniss. “Using these enhanced lockbox systems will improve how they work and the level of service they can provide their clients. It’s an exciting time for us.”

The supporting software and app have several features that will be especially beneficial to those in the Lakelands districts who are selling their second home or cottage from a remote location. The system accurately records the times and dates that the authorized REALTOR® has opened the lockbox. The technology also allows agents to use touch ID and facial recognition technology to open the lockbox. The listing brokerage and homeowner are updated in real time when a lockbox is opened, for even more peace of mind. And each individual lockbox can be programmed to operate only during hours approved by the seller.

“These smart lockboxes, with such impressive features, have been well-received by buyers, sellers and REALTORS® who are already using the system,” says Inniss. “We believe our members and their clients will benefit greatly from this new tool. We can’t wait to see how this technology will improve the valuable services that our members provide.”
