Managing Shared Locks (as a Keyholder)

As a keyholder using ChastiKey you are able to create a lock with a number of settings and share that lock privately with a partner or small group of people, or publicly share it on forums, websites, and social networks.

When you’ve created a lock, you will have the option to share it as QR code which has your lock ID encoded in it, or a URL. A lockee can load your lock from either of these.

When they load it, they will start a lock with all of the settings you chose, and you will be able to update and manage that lock remotely from your device.

If a lockee says that they trust you when loading your lock, or if you’ve forced trust (there’s an option for that when creating a lock) then you will be able to add and remove as many cards or time as you want and as often as you want, providing you’re not going over the maximum that the app allows.

If they said that they don’t trust you which is recommended to the lockee if this is their first time locking with you then you are limited to what you can add and how often. On a variable lock the limits are 7 reds, and 3 of each type of yellow cards. You’re not able to add extra greens, resets, double ups, or freeze cards. You may also have to wait a period of time before you can make an update.

On each of your locks you can see lockees that are currently locked under the lock, those that have finished the locked, and those that have abandoned the lock, these are people that loaded your lock and deleted it along with their combination before the lock finished, so probably wasn’t really locked in the first place.
