Introducing the Call2Command Keyless Access Feature – Schlage Locks

We’ve been waiting to release the key details on one of our exciting patent-pending convenience features in Jervis Systems. As we make progress, I wanted to highlight this keyless access feature in more detail.

We have several cutting-edge advances in the works that I believe our users will love.

I especially like this feature, called Call2Command. Currently, we use it regularly to manage Loudoun Escape, the short-term rental property our team owns and manages through Airbnb.

What does Call2Command do?

Our system is built to do exactly what Call2Command’s name implies. Once configured through the Jervis Dashboard, a property owner, property manager or authorized renter or guest can configure the system to execute commands at the home.

Users can select options in a menu on a phone call. The system first verifies that the commands are coming from an authorized user during an approved time period.

One of the use cases we will support and offer to Jervis Systems users is the ability to lock and unlock smart locks. Property staff can authorize users to access the system during a particular time period. The system also allows indefinite access.

Calling for keyless property access

Call2Command allows remote granting of access during a short-term rental period, or to enable friends or family to enter without having to give them a key. This feature is also useful to grant access to a dog walker or a house sitter at a specific time. Additionally, realtors and real estate agents can also use it to unlock smart lock-enabled doors to show properties to prospective buyers.

The possibilities are endless.

Call2Command opens far more virtual “doors” than just the enabled smart locks. It allows commands to be issued at a property on any programmable smart device.

My team and I are excited and looking forward to showing off this feature!

Unlocking and locking Schlage smart locks: a demo

Below is a demo video of how this Call2Command capability works with smart locks by calling to unlock and lock the Schlage Sense and Schlage Encode locks.


I’ll share an update video once we’ve completed our integration for the August and Yale locks. The Jervis Systems dashboard and mobile app will give property owners and property managers complete control over when and who they give access to this feature.

We have a complimentary feature called Text2Command that I will also showcase here in the next few weeks. I will do a separate blog post about why these features are beneficial.

I will discuss how they lower the barrier of entry and allow property managers and owners to implement tiers of access control and entry in the keyless future of management. It’s one of the many benefits we will provide in our property management system. We aim to decrease the workload of property management teams everywhere.

Call2Command will be initially available only to beta testers and will be opened up to all users when Jervis Systems officially launches later this year.

If you would like to sign up for beta testing, please contact us and let us know! We’ll be opening beta user access the first week of August 2020!
