How it all started...
KeyNest was founded in 2015 by Marc Figueras and Florian Hoven. It all started when Marc asked his local café to hold keys for his Airbnb guests, who’d be coming later that day. Today, KeyNest uses smart RFID fobs to manage keys for thousands of clients across the UK, both at their own offices and through an extensive network of KeyNest Stores.
- Stores and Offices
- Backed by the UK’s leading property companies
- Airbnb HostAssist partners
Integrated solution for all your key management problems.
KeyNest Office is a unique key management system that tracks keys in and out of business premises, so you’ll never lose keys again.
KeyNest Stores hold keys locally and are typically used by Airbnb hosts and property managers.
Both products work seamlessly together so you’ll be able to manage all your keys in one dashboard.
KeyNest is backed by LiFE Residential, one of London’s leading Estate Agents, and part of the Galliard Homes group.
We joined LiFE Ventures’ accelerator program in 2017, as part of our second round of investment.
In November 2018 we were proud to win SmallBusiness.co.uk’s Small Business Grants initiative, and in February 2019 we were nominated for Best Service Provider at the Serviced Apartment Awards.
In 2017 we became the UK’s first Airbnb HostAssist Partner.
Thanks to our direct API integration with Airbnb, you can use your Airbnb account to manage keys at secure.keynest.com.
