    Lockbox for AirBNB

    Hi all, where in HK can I buy one of those key lockboxes that people use for AirBnb?

    Do you mean a lockbox with an electronic / combo lock on it so your tenant can open it and get the keys + you can change the combo when needed?

    Why not fit a lock that integrates with AirBNB?

    August will automatically generate a custom personal entry code thats valid at check-in until check-out. Keys can never be reused.

    I have the combination lock box. You can go to Wanchai and find it on the street where they sell tiles and other renovation products. I think I got it for about $200 HKD. I use it for all those times I've accidentally locked myself out of my flat and my spares happen to be with friends who never travel but happened to be travelling when I needed them. Hahaha best investment ever for me (my door tends to swing shut with a gust of wind and it automatically locks)

    Wanchai is pretty big, do you know the exact street name?
