Sentri Lock Update Confusion- Update Daily- Not Weekly

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Distinctive / LIC in VA

Wow, I just received an email saying that one of the agents from our Mclean office showed up at a property to show it, and couldn't get in. How annoying. I just finished ready a story 2-3 days ago about glitches with Sentri-Lock, and updating your card only needed to be done weekly. Supposedly Sentri-lock didn't notify this agent, and maybe didn't notify anyone else that apparently cards now need to be updated daily again. Anyone having any problems with Sentri Lock?

NVAR did post the following notice on their site. I don't know if they sent out a mass email to members or not.

 

 

"SentriCard Resumes Daily Updates

SentriiLock has resolved their technical difficulties regarding SentriCard updates, and they have resumed their daily update routine.

Please contact SentriLock customer service directly if you continue to experience any update difficulties. "

Maybe we need to hide a combo lock on our listings again?

I would think if the opener didn't work it would be an automatic to update. My supra works thru the smartphone. Easy to update. Is sentricard lock not the same.

#1- Hi Bill, We had Supra before switching to Sentri-Lock. Yes, they are different. There is a way to update from the lockbox or by phone, but my understanding was the agent couldn't get updated.

I did a bit of ranting and raving when I got my new Sentrilock card at DAAR a couple of years ago. 

I had one from MD that only had to be updated weekly.  Didn't make sense to me to have to update daily.

It was the board choice.
