'NEW" Common Door Function - Offset Access Times


Based on customer feedback, Lockstate have released a new 'Common Door' feature* Many multi-lock customers have wifi locks on apartment doors but also have a main common door that either has a wifi lock or our wired ACS. Currently you can group locks so that the same code will open both doors. But what if you wanted to give guests access to the front door before your normal check in time? A typical scenario is guests arriving early and want to leave luggage in the lobby at 9am but cannot get access to their room until 2pm.  Now you can assign a different access schedule to the front door. For example:


Simon Smith - Code 3972 - Apartment 1 - Access Wednesday 2pm until Thursday 11am

Simon Smith - Code 3972 - Main Common Door - Access Wednesday 9am until Thursday 7pm

In addition guests can check out of their room and pickup luggage later in the day. This functionality can be applied to door groups, ACS and work with Airbnb.

*Pro subscription to the smartCONNECT portal is required.

Group Locks for multi door access

Did you know that with the new smartCONNECT portal, you can group locks. Let's say you have a main common door on your building and an apartment within that building. Assuming each door has a Wi-Fi Remotelock or our ACS solution, when you create an access code, the same code will operate both doors for the same time duration. Furthermore you can group as many doors as you wish, you might have a luggage room so the access code will work on 3 doors. Our Lockstate ACS common door solutions are not displayed on our website so please contact us for more information.

Using Mortice Locks with the 6i

What makes the Remotelock 6i and Resortlock different from other smart locks is that it comes in a mortice version. This means that in some instances you can leave your existing mortice latch and just replace the existing door handle. Lockstate offer a compatible mortice as does Salto. The video below demonstrates how you can achieve additional levels of security using the Salto XS4 mortice.
