Guesty announces integration with Lynx Automation (formerly VirtualKEY)

More good news for Guesty customers! We are very excited to welcome the newest addition to Guesty’s rapidly expanding integrations marketplace – Lynx Automation.

Lynx Automation is bringing the power of smart home automation to the vacation rental industry.

Founded in 2016, this company isn’t pulling any punches! It already provides its remote keyless entry system to properties in over 175 cities across the US, Europe, and South America.

In addition to facilitating easy remote keyless entry, granting guests more flexible check-in and check-out times, and allowing managers and travelers to forego the hassle of coordinating key exchanges, Lynx Automation offers other valuable functions, like the pre-heating of pools prior to guest arrivals, as well as the regulation of thermostats whenever a property is vacant.

Equally convenient is Lynx Automation’s automated smart workflow feature, which sends an alert to cleaning staff as soon as a guest checks out, and then notifies an inspector once maintenance is complete. After a property has been inspected and approved, the manager is automatically informed that the rental is once again ready for use.

What really sets this Chicago-based company apart from its competitors, is its brand agnosticism; Lynx Automation technology works with any smart lock and is compatible with over 200 home automation devices!

Now that it has joined forces with Guesty, Lynx Automation can instantly access your listings, generate a unique four-digit passcode for each of your guests, and start working its magic.

At Guesty, we are excited about the many ways this new partnership can benefit our users. Removing keys from the equation can save property managers in costs as it means fewer staff members – or none at all – are required to facilitate check in and checkout. A keyless entry system streamlines the rental process, freeing up our clients to focus on the growth of their businesses rather than key exchanges and the periodical lock change or key replacement.

Most importantly, smooth and easy check-in, as well as the other features Lynx Automation provides, are sure to enhance guest experience, resulting in positive reviews and a greater number of returning guests and referrals.

This new addition to Guesty’s expanding integration marketplace was fueled by our ongoing mission to simplify the management process as much as possible and to enable quick synchronization with external features that further that goal.
