  • The doors of the rooms in the shared apartments do NOT automatically when being closed. You can lock/unlock the door using the app. Until you lock it again, the door will stay unlocked ;) That way, you will never be locked out of your room.
    This mode is called "office mode" and is explained on the Tapkey website here.
