Shabbos in an Airbnb
« on: June 07, 2023, 04:35:24 AM »
The last time we did Airbnb it was an older place with a keyed entry and manual lights etc. How do people deal with the issues that concern me up in a newer place. Some things light fridge, motion sensors, etc. should be pretty basic. How do people deal with smart locks which most listings seem to feature? Is there often a manual override or keyed option?

That issue you have with hotels, etc.

I am sure it is covered elsewhere on the forum.

There is a hotels thread. Hotels have personnel who can be asked to open the door according to some.

There is no magic solution. You have to communicate with the host in advance and ask for a manual key

In Airbnb whole house rentals there is most times a side or back door that does have a manual lock.
The fancy locks are usually kept to the front/main door.
