GIMLS Lockbox Rules
HOW TO GET STARTED
The GIMLS SentriLock Lockbox Program is a GIMLS member benefit. There is no additional fee for a participating broker or subscribing agent to access the mobile app, desktop site, or Bluetooth lockboxes. If you are already a GIMLS member, you will need to first activate your account before you can access the mobile app and Bluetooth lockboxes.
The first thing you'll need to do is download the SentriLock End User License Agreement linked below. Print, sign, and date this form and return it to Lauren or fax to (912) 267-0707. Once the signed EULA has been submitted, you should receive an activation email from SentriLock, LLC within 24 hours. If you do not receive this email, notify GIMLS using the above email address.
LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS GIMLS BENEFIT
- All SentriLock Bluetooth Lockboxes are a free member benefit - this benefit is extended to all Golden Isles MLS Participants and Subscribers. Brokers (or an authorized representative of the broker) must pick up lockboxes from the Association office.
- All Residential listings in the Golden Isles MLS that are Active or Active Contingent must have a SentriLock Bluetooth Lockbox attached to the property.
- If your seller does not want a lockbox on his or her property, then you will need to upload the seller-signed Lockbox Authorization Addendum to the Documents section of the listing on MLS.
- You must assign your lockbox to your listing using the SentriSmart mobile app or desktop website. You will no longer be able to assign a one-day code until your lockbox has been assigned to a listing.
LOCKBOX AUTHORIZATION ADDENDUM
Every listing must have a SentriLock Bluetooth Lockbox. If your seller opts out of a Bluetooth Lockbox, you must attach this authorization addendum to the listing in MLS under Supplements.
HOMEOWNER ADVANTAGE FLYER
You can download and customize this informational flyer and give it to your clients to help explain the benefits of using a SentriLock Bluetooth Lockbox.
USING THE MOBILE APP
You are highly encouraged to download the free SentriKey mobile app. SentriCards require daily renewal, and there is no renewal necessary with the app. SentriKey is compatible with Apple iOS and Android devices only.
USING THE WEBSITE
For brokers and office admins, it is important to be familiar with the SentriLock website. You will not be able to use your SentriKey mobile app to assign lockboxes to listings where another one of your agents is the listing agent. To do that, you will need to log in to SentriLock.com. Contact Lauren if you are having trouble logging in to the website.
