Adding guests with just a phone number


I have been using lockitron bold and bridge to support my AirBnB and it has been going okay. I am frustrated however that I have to request the personal emails of my guests before I can activate them. Is there a way around this? I have tried several times to just add a phone number, and never seems to work.

Thanks in advance. Posting this support question here because I could not find a “Contact Us” option on your page.


@jmocmd Interesting. I didn’t know there was an “invite by phone number” in adding a contact. We’d have to check with @cameron on this one.

I seem to recall there used to be a feature where you could enable SMS based control for an additional monthly fee.
I’ve never used it, and I don’t know if it’s still available though.


You could just create a pin code for your guests. No need for them to download the app, and you don’t need phone number or email :slight_smile:


Thanks @microkid , that would be ideal. Unfortunately I do not have the keypad version. I wanted it, but it was out of stock, and the soonest I could get it was November…
