About Us

Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone.

Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 34,000 cities and 190 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetise their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.

Brief history:

Airbed and breakfast, or in short Airbnb, was founded by two design graduates from the Rhode Island School of Design. When their landlord decided to raise the rent for the apartment they were then living in, the two unemployed graduates who couldn't afford to pay for the new rent had come up with a solution to their problem. They created a temporary website called airbedandbreakfast.com and rented out their extra space to strangers they had just met online.

Then came the next problem: there weren't enough beds in the apartment for these guests arriving to spend the night in the apartment. Joe, who's one of the co-founders, came up with a brilliant idea to make use of the air beds which were used during his last camping trip for their guests. Both Brian and Joe also served breakfast in the morning, but since they couldn't afford it, it was then only cereals and milk.

This was how the name of the company Airbed and breakfast was incepted, and today, we have people listing their extra space in 35,000 cities and 190 countries in the world.

Key Exchange has been a painful experience for Airbnb Host. We are here to provide a solution to you.

How Igloohome Airbnb Lock Solve Your Problem?

With Igloohome Smart Lock, we are able to direct integrate with Airbnb listings, to synchronize your reservations with access to your home or property, so that you would not have to worry about check-in and check-out of guests again.

igloohome is a preferred partner of Airbnb – Host Assist allows for easy key exchange and keyless entry without the need to manually schedule anything.

When a guest’s accommodation booking is confirmed, we send a unique PIN code to the guest.
They will use it to enter your property throughout their stay.
At the end of the stay, the guest’s PIN code expires.
When the next accommodation booking is confirmed, a new PIN code is generated for the next guest.
Even when your guests arrive late at night, or early in the morning, igloohome smart solution makes it simple and easy for guests to access your premise.

Another concern that Airbnb hosts have, is that the problem of guests duplicating the key, if using the conventional lock and key stem. With igloohome smart solution, the constant changing of PIN codes heightens security of the property, so you have peace of mind.

Multiple Modes of Entry the smart way

PIN CODE
igloohome Smart Lock comes with LED touchscreen that can be unlocked when you tap in a 8-digit PIN code. The smart lock does not need an internet connection to function. The magic comes from the synchronisation of our smart lock and our mobile app, even before the lock is installed. The technology behind the system is actually much more complicated than that - algorithms and seeds and many other technical terms are involved.

BLUETOOTH
If you are in close distance of the lock (eg. within an approx 10m radius), you can easily tap 'Unlock' from our mobile app, put your hand over the touchscreen of the lock to activate it, and the smart lock will unlock accordingly. Bid farewell to the times when you were locked out of your home because you forgot to bring your keys out!

PHYSICAL KEY

You may not even need to use this option at all, but it is retained as a mode of entry for emergency situations (eg. if you are unable to change the batteries of the lock before they run out of power). This is the conventional lock and key method, in which you insert a physical key and turn it to unlock the lock. It is the back-up plan, to provide you reassurance that you will be able to enter your home no matter what.

Our Company is based in Kuala Lumpur and we are the authorised reseller of igloohome for Malaysia.
