In this episode we have a very special guest, Glenn Cooley. Glenn is the founder of one of the biggest and most active Airbnb Groups, the New Host Forum. The group is a place where hosts share experiences and advice on Airbnb hosting.
Glenn has a really interesting story that he shares with us in this episode as well as some great advice on Airbnb hosting, particularly on the use of electronic locks.
ResortLock ($299 – $399): good but expensive. Common in the VR segment. Requires a complete reinstallation of the lock.
Lockitron ($179): backordered for 3 months due to production problems. fits on most existing cylindrical residential dead-bolt style locks.
Schlage Touchscreen Deadbolt ($199) Widely available online. Integrates with the Nexia Home Intelligence system which includes wireless cameras, dimmer modules and thermostats (except the Nest).
