Latch Tips

1. Access Sharing 

For guests who are dropping in for a moment, you can “Let Someone In” by giving them a 15 Minutes Doorcode. If you have a service person who you’re expecting to come by for a full day of home repairs, try our Single Day Doorcode. Send them Doorcodes via text or email.

For more flexible access, invite your guests like family, friends, or partners to download the Latch App. By sharing the Latch App, you can give custom access start and end times no matter where you are.


2. Change Doorcode Access

Your unique seven digit Doorcode was designed with security in mind. Currently, you cannot change your Doorcodes but if you think they’ve been compromised, please contact us at to have them reset.


3. Security and Privacy

Latch products are designed to give residents peace of mind. Latch devices with cameras only take photos of guests. The comings and goings of a resident in their private spaces is only viewable by them; the Latch device will never take a photo of residents when they are entering their home.

To keep common areas safe for everyone, access at common doors are captured, much like building security cameras.


4. Maintenance

Every Latch device is designed with a Latch Lens to audit guests entering your space. To download the latest updates of guest access events, stand next to your Latch and update your door.

Latch devices are designed to require a battery change every one to two years. Your property manager can monitor the battery level under “Doors” in the Latch App menu and they will receive a notification if your battery is running low.


5. End of Lease and/or Transition of Apartment Ownership

If applicable, deactivate your Keycard before returning it to your property manager or giving it to the new apartment unit resident. Keycards need to be deactivated before they are considered returned; otherwise, you may incur a replacement cost.

Instructions to deactivate your Keycard:

  1. Go to
  2. Select 'Deactivate'
  3. Enter your Latch email address (that you use to login to the app)
  4. Check your email and confirm the deactivation
  5. Your property management will be informed to update your device to ensure the Keycard no longer works
