Leave your FOB at home and use a code to get in your building!
- Going jogging and don’t want to carry anything?
- Took the dog out and forgot your keys?
- Want to let friends & relatives in without giving them a FOB?
There are many situations when it would be nice to get in your building without a FOB. Whether you’re lazy, forgetful, or just need someone to feed your fish while you’re on vacation, getting yourself or others in with out a FOB is just plain convenient.
First, the Building…
Our door buzzer called my fiancé’s phone, so as long as she could answer it to let me in, I could simply use the buzzer. However after getting stuck outside a couple times when she couldn’t answer, I found a better solution.
I signed up for DoorBuzzin ( doorbuzz.in ) which allows me to set an access code for the Buzzer. This way I can get in anytime without having to bother my fiancé, and I also made codes for my in-laws and friends. It has the added benefit of forwarding to multiple phones and other cool stuff too. I highly recommend checking it out!
Next, the Apartment…
For this I simply replaced the lock on my unit’s door with a key-pad based lock. Super simple solution.
These work great and are available on Amazon
Now I’m able to let my housekeeper, in-laws, friends, and most importantly myself in anytime I want. I am safe to walk the dog and forget my keys as often as I want!
