You will receive a key card (free of charge) when you move in to your student accommodation.
Garage and main door: Hold the card in front of the device reader. It will flash green. Enter your four-digit code. The door unlocks.
Unit/apartment doors: Hold the card in front of the device reader. Push down the door handle and open the door when you get a green flash and a single beep. The door will automatically lock when you close it, but may be opened from the inside using the doorknob.
NB! Do not make holes in, or write on the key card – it may stop working.
Note – buy yourself a backup key card from our service centre: Since the doors lock automatically when closed, it is possible you may get locked out. It may be a good idea to keep an extra key card at e.g. a friend's place. That way, if you loose your main key card or get locked out, you will not need to get charged. Read about what you need to do if you lock yourself out/lose your key card or need some assistance.
Error message from the device reader on unit/apartment doors: Green and red lights flash alternately: means low battery and the batteries need to be replaced immediately. If the batteries are low, the green and red lights might flash at the same time. Please let us know if the readers are in need of battery replacement.
When you move out, you need to return your key cards to our service centre. The dropbox by the mailboxes may be used as well. CAUTION! If you do not return your key card, you will be charged a fee. See the price list.
