Metro MLS Update

  1. Metro MLS phone lines are currently down due to a major fiber cut in their area. Please email them for your technical support, data integrity/admin and WIREdata support issues. Will let you know when the phone lines are back up.
  2. Secondly, metromls.com and tax information will be unavailable Wednesday afternoon again roughly 2 PM until 5 PM as they finish up some server issues. They apologize for the inconvenience but have to finish this task up and has been much more involved than they expected due to some very old infrastructure in the building and lack of recovery of some server systems.

Master Lock Notes from August 16th Meeting

Thank you to those who were able to stop in, email or call with questions.  We were able to answer questions and have a better understanding of the system.

  • It has been brought up that the door of the key compartment will sometimes lock and the door won’t shut until the code is reentered or the unlock door button has been pressed on the app.  If you start to close the door and the prongs come in contact with the box, but then you don’t close it completely, the box will think it’s locked.  The same thing can happen with the shackle.  If you put the shackle on, but don’t wait to hear it engage and pull the shackle out right away, it will think that the shackle has been put on.
  • Going forward, we will send out an email to let everyone know that an update has been pushed out.  Your phone will update based on how you have your phone set to update within the Settings on your phone.
  • Some members have been asking about having to sign in to the site on their phone each time.  This is based on how you have your internet browser on your phone or computer set up.  It is not based on the Master Lock app or website.
  • Before you head out to an appointment.  Make sure you have refreshed your keys within the app while you are in a place with good internet reception.  This will only take a couple minutes (remember, there are over 600 keys currently) and then the keys are good for seven days.  If you do this once you get to a showing, it might take longer due to connections.
  • At the top of your app there are two buttons, Authorized|Awake, if you go to the awake side, push any button on the box, you will immediately see it instead of having to search or scroll on the authorized side.
  • When calling tech support, please identify yourself as being with Manitowoc County Board of Realtors.  Tech support’s number is 1-866-760-1936 it is also below in the Weekly Update email.
