• Manage your resident’s virtual keys
  • View who has access to your property at all times




In your ButterflyMX-equipped building, your residents can create, issue, and revoke virtual keys for their trusted guests such as family members or dog walkers. As a ButterflyMX property admin, you can monitor those active virtual keys. This can improve security at your property by allowing you to see who has access to your building at all times. Read this post to learn how to manage virtual keys as a property admin.

  2. Click ‘Active Visitor Access’
  3. Click the eye icon to the right of a tenant’s name


Step 1: Log into the ButterflyMX OS

The visitor access section will tell you:

  • Which tenant sent the virtual key
  • The type of virtual key (recurring or single-use)
  • The details of that key. E.g., for recurring keys, what days/ time they’re active for, and for one-time keys when that key is active


Step 3: Click the eye icon to the right of a tenant’s name

Click the eye icon to the right of a tenant’s name to see additional details about the virtual key.
