Property managers can disable doorcodes and access sharing to restrict guests from entering certain amenity spaces. Spaces with disabled doorcodes and access sharing will still allow residents to use their Latch App or keycard to unlock these spaces without any further action.
These settings can be adjusted within Latch Manager to allow for more tailored access management.
Turn off "May Share Key"
When inviting a resident in Latch Manager, you can disable the “May Share Key” feature for certain amenity spaces.
To disable this feature, navigate to the resident’s detail page.
- Select “Keys”
- Select the Key that you would like to turn off access sharing for
- Select “Edit”
- Turn off “May Share Key”
- Save your changes
Once changes are saved, residents will no longer be able to share access with guests for designated doors.
How to disable doorcodes
Property managers can disable doorcodes to prevent residents from sharing their personal doorcodes with guests to access certain amenity spaces.
When disabling this feature, this will deactivate doorcode access for any selected doors in a Key and affect all keyholders. It’s important to ensure that doors are not selected that residents should have doorcode access to such as the building entrance or their individual unit.
To disable this feature:
- When creating a new Key, ensure that “Provide Doorcodes” is turned off during the Creating Keys step for any doors that should not have a doorcode provided to key holders.
- For existing Keys, simply navigate to the desired Key, go to the doors section, and tap “Edit” to make changes to each door as desired before saving the changes at the bottom.
