SentriLock Releasing the Newest Bluetooth® REALTOR® Lockbox
March 15, 2018
Key Enhancements will include:
External Power Port
An external power port makes changing the batteries easier by eliminating the need to use the power paddle. The batteries can be changed with just the new battery kit and the SentriSmart™ Mobile App or SentriCard®.
The card slot and hinges have additional coverings that make this box even more weather resistant.
Enhancements to the internal mainboard and time clock create improved battery efficiency. Testing shows that we can expect over 6 years of battery life on 99% of the new boxes, over 7 years of battery life on 95% of these boxes, and over 9 years on 90% of these boxes.
