What are eKeys?

eKeys are encrypted electronic keys. eKeys move your physical keys into the digital world and enhance your home access experience.

Kevo Deadbolt

Free, Unlimited Guest eKeys

This free eKey allows you to give your Guest unrestricted access for a 24 hour period and will then be automatically deleted. If this eKey is not used within 24 hours after the eKey has been sent, it will expire. Guest eKeys are unlimited and can be sent to the same person or different people each time.

Scheduled eKey

This eKey allows you to pre-set time constraints for the recipient. You control the days and the time of the week when the eKey will be active. If you already have eKeys in your account, you will be able to designate them as a Scheduled eKey. If needed, additional Scheduled eKeys are an in-app purchase of $1.99, never expire and can be reassigned from one person to the next as a Scheduled or Anytime eKey

Anytime

You can send this eKey to anyone, anywhere, anytime. This eKey never expires, can be reassigned from one person to the next, and can be designated as an Anytime or Scheduled eKey.

Reassigning eKeys

Changing babysitters?

Get a new contractor?

Need to find a new roommate?

With the enhanced sharing feature of the eKey, you can send an eKey to anyone, retrieve it when you no longer want them to have it and reassign that same eKey to another person.
