Are you using eKey and how is it working for you?

Reblogger Charita Cadenhead
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

To eKey or not to eKey.....that is Karen's question.  I am a big fan of the Supra eKey primarily because I don't have to worry about remembering to have a keypad with me all of the time. It is a bit more costly to have an ekey compared to paying for the use of a keypad, but the small difference is cost more than justifies having the ekey. I was convinced of that the very first day that I used my ekey and cell phone to open a lockbox.

Original content by Rosemary Brooks

eKey is available on iPhone - are you ready? or are you using it and if yes how is it working for you?  I have been interested in it and wanted to check with my ActiveRain family to see how it is working before I jump into it.  Is it saving you money, time and energy?  What is the advantage to using it instead of sticking with the old way?

The features of the eKey are:

  • Obtain key
  • Open shackle
  • inventory
  • add lockbox
  • read activity
  • update
  • messages
  • change settings

Let me know what you think of eKey for your MLS needs.

Charita, thanks for the re-blog and the information.  I have been thinking about eKey for a while, but research is first.  Have a great weekend.

Dear Charita -

DITTO!!!  I love the ekey program - for years I had it on my Palm.  One less thing to keep up with during the day. Just like Mary (#4) - I wish I had everything in one device.

The next move is to Bluetooth signal. SUPRA already has combination Infrared (ekey type signal) and Bluetooth lockboxes BUT the changeover is at the discretion of each MLS.

Have a happy day -
Lynn

Charita - I've been using eKey for many years.  They are awesome and I can't imagine using any other type of lockbox.

Charita, when I used a Palm I had the ekey installed by our RMLS on the Palm and I loved it because I did not have to have a separate ekey and it was easy.  I don't use the Palm anymore and have a DroidX which I love, but one needs the FOB which I have, but don't like because it seems to be one more step for me.  I still need two devices and not one like with the Palm.  We have the Supra electronic key which I have with me all the time so I cannot see the difference unless you can totally just do it with your phone as I did with the palm.  Our Supra ekey is easy and gives me all of the information so it is easy. I hope I am not confusing with my comment but I only want one device.

There is no one in our market using an electronic lockbox key at this time.  I wonder when they will show up here in South Jersey?
