Airbnb Connect automates the generation of PIN codes for your Airbnb guests. This saves you the time taken to create PIN codes manually. 

Here's how it works: 

  1. A guest makes an approved booking on your Airbnb calendar. 
  2. At 1 hour (default but can be changed) before the check-in time, a PIN code is sent via email to the guest's Airbnb email address (with the Airbnb host in CC).  The PIN code needs to be activated within 24 hours of the check-in time and date.
  3. The PIN code is only valid for the duration of the guest's approved duration of stay. After check-out time on their last day, the PIN code expires automatically. 

Note: Check-in time is determined by the Airbnb listing when it is first connected. The check-in time can be changed on the igloohome app itself (instructions here), but will only apply to reservations confirmed after the change.

This is a sample email of what is sent to each Airbnb guest:

Hi Sarah,

We are pleased to inform you that igloohome self check-in is available at Michael's listing (Amazing view Studio - Well located) from Mar 2, 2018 to Mar 6, 2018.

Place your palm over the keypad on the lock and enter the PIN code below to check in. This PIN only activates at check-in time and expires upon check-out. Refer to your Airbnb reservation for final confirmation from host.

If you experience any other difficulties during check-in, please contact your host via Airbnb website.

Enjoy your stay!
