I have a unit of AirBnb, so for entering my unit I chose Hafele Igloohome. Most AirBnb in Malaysia use normal key to go inside the unit. Problem is some bad guests copy the key and then either steal the furnishing inside after few days they left the unit or they rent it out the unit as it is theirs using the duplicate keys.
All these happened in Airbnb KL area.
Why Chose Hafele Igloohome?
Major reasons I chose Hafele Igloohome because:
- I can create access PIN without requiring internet.
- Access PIN can be easily revoked or set based on duration
- It is the most affordable Smart Mortise Lock. RM1,550 per unit.
- Access via PIN, Access Card or Keys
- No need WIFI to create new PIN
- Auto lock when close door
- Can use 9V battery if batteries are out.
- Don’t disturb button where access by PIN will not open the door.

Igloohome comes with easy to use mobile application that supports iOS and Android.

You need to be near to the smart lock to sync up with its access logs.
I thought at first I want to install it myself by watching Youtube tutorial. But I could hardly find any good tutorial.
So I decided to hire professional installer. When I saw he needed to prepare first the door so the Hafele Igloohome could fit into the door then I knew it was not as easy as I thought.
He took 1 hour to install the smart mortise lock. Most of time spent to prepare the door. Installing the device was quite fast.
Hafele Igloohome requires 3 AA alkaline battery to function. Igloohome only allows Energizer or Panasonic battery to be used if not the warranty will be voided.
They only recommend those batteries because other battery may leak.
How To Open The Smart Lock Door
So far, all works well except the duration PIN that doesn’t work as intended. I’m still figuring out how to use it.
Anyway even though the duration PIN doesn’t work perfectly, I still can use permanent PIN for my guests. Only problem is I have to manually revoke the access.
So overall, I am satisfied with the Hafele Igloohome Smart Mortise Lock.
Where To Buy
You can buy it at Lazada or go directly to the shop. I recommended below shop because they offer the most competitive price and they have their panel of installers for the smart lock.
