Agent Safety Feature on SentriLock

When the clocks jump back this weekend, we’ll have less daylight for open houses and showings. It has me thinking about safety and how important it is to be proactive and protect yourself and your clients. Making sure all the lights are on at appropriate times is a given. Set timers when you’re showing a home or hosting an open house to ensure you’re never left in the dark searching for a switch.

One more thing- did you know your lockbox subscription has a safety feature for you to utilize at showings and open houses?

SentriLock is the OneKey® MLS lockbox system of choice. It offers us convenient and secure access to listings using the SentriKey™ App on our mobile devices. Lockboxes are incredibly useful tools for us in the field, but your lockbox subscription also includes a safety feature that every Realtor® should enable. Like all other SentriLock features, it’s available exclusively through the SentriKey App.

The Agent Safety feature is an innovative way of making home showings more secure by automatically and discreetly alerting your designated emergency contacts when you don’t feel safe or if you can’t confirm that you’re safe. The SentriKey Real Estate App enables REALTORS® to easily alert predetermined emergency contacts if an unexpected or potentially dangerous situation develops while showing a home to prospective buyers. To take advantage of this safety feature, you must enable it ahead of time. In addition to always using common sense when showing listings, I encourage you to put technology to work for you. Enable and use the Agent Safety feature available on the SentriKey app. Check out the “How To” instructions below or click HERE to learn how. If you need assistance, feel free to contact SentriLock seven days a week by calling 1-877-556-6114.

Take care of yourself and be safe!
