What is an eKey?
An eKey is an encrypted electronic key that can be sent to friends and family with
Kevo-compatible smartphones. It works just like your existing mechanical key but
resides on your Smartphone. Each Kevo lock comes with two free eKeys - one for the
owner and another one to use for a friend, family member, or house sitter that has
a Kevo compatible Smartphone. Additional eKeys are only a one time charge of $1.99,
providing unlimited use to an assigned user.
Each eKey is unique and assigned specifically to a Kevo user. In order to guarantee
the best security, sharing of eKeys is not available at this time.
What are the different eKey types?
- Owner eKey: When you set up your phone to work with the lock your phone will automatically
receive the only owner eKey.
- Admin eKey: have full access to the lock, the lock's history, and its notifications
in addition to being able to send, edit, or delete eKeys with the exception of the
- Anytime eKey: are able to lock or unlock the lock.
