How to Connect & Setup Access for Your Lodgify Account

With the Jervis Systems-Lodgify integration, you can import your property listings and reservation details and automate property access via SET PIN codes for guests, cleaning companies, and maintenance personnel.

To connect Lodgify to Jervis Systems and set up automated property access, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Jervis Systems account. (Create your Jervis Systems account here if you haven’t already. For more help on signing up, see our help guide here.)

2. Navigate to the “Marketplace” page in your Jervis Systems dashboard and select the option to connect to Lodgify.

3. To connect to Lodgify, you will need to paste your public API key in the provided form. You can find your Lodgify API Key in the profile settings of your Lodgify account.

4. If the connection is successful, you will see a green confirmation message. Your Lodgify PMS profile will now show the following settings. Be sure to leave these settings enabled.

5. Once your Lodgify and Jervis Systems accounts are connected, go to your “Properties Page” within your Jervis Systems account and click “Refresh Properties”.

When the page had reloaded, you will see all the property listings imported from your Lodgify account. Select the three dots to the right of each listing to view and edit your property details. (Important: Be sure that your time zone details are set and correct for each of your properties.)

6. The next steps will walk you through setting up automated access between Jervis Systems and Lodgify for your imported reservations. Go to the Devices page and connect to your smart locks and devices by selecting the “Import Devices” button. From there, select your smart lock or device system provider and follow the prompts to connect your smart lock account.

7. Once your devices are imported successfully, you will want to assign your devices to your imported Lodgify properties. You can do this by selecting the drop-down list for the device you want to assign and checking the boxes for the properties you want it to be assigned to.

8. Once the device is successfully assigned to a property (showing a green icon next to your property name on the Properties page), you will be able to generate SET Pin codes for your upcoming reservations.

9. Navigate to your “Reservations” page and select “Refresh Reservations” to generate the SET PIN code for your reservation.

10. Now, your next step is to share that SET PIN code with your guests. To do this, you need to set up the messages that will share access instructions with your guests. Navigate to the Notifications Templates page.

11. From there, you have the option to use the Jervis Systems’ pre-written templates to communicate with guests before, during, and following their rental stay. To edit these templates, follow the instructions in our user guide here.

12. Alternatively, the PIN codes for each reservation can be manually added in the “notes” section of your Lodgify reservation details.

13. Finally, you have the option to set your guest’s PIN code to be the last 4 last digits of their phone number.  Lodgify includes a placeholder in the automatic emails that creates this PIN code from the guest phone number that was used to create the booking. By creating the automatic response shown below with the placeholder, the host can send each guest their door code automatically without having to manually note down each individual code.

Success! You now have your Jervis Systems and Lodgify accounts connected, your SET PIN is created, and your access instructions are set up to be sent out to your rental guests.
