Get Started with CodeBoxes
So you just got your first set of CodeBoxes. This article will give you everything you need to get up and running.
1. Make Sure You Understand the Paradigm
ShowMojo and CodeBoxes will work differently than any other systems, process or service that you have used in the past.
When everything is configured correctly there will be no phone calls to answer, no emails to respond to, and no codes to manually pull and give to prospects. ShowMojo automates all of this. The only manual activity you need to consider is the timely approval of documents if you choose to use Document Verification.
To have a smooth setup experience the most important things to do are:
- Make sure your CodeBoxes are functioning correctly and assigned to and hung on the correct listings. Remember, do not place your only key in the box.
- Review and understand the ShowMojo settings for CodeBoxes, so you know you have configuration that works for you.
Taking your time now makes it much less likely you will find yourself standing in front of a listing troubleshooting an issue.
2. Test and Get Comfortable with the CodeBoxes
Your CodeBoxes arrive door-hang ready. Nonetheless, it is always best to Complete a CodeBox System and Hardware Test before putting a CodeBox into service. This will also familiarize you with some of the basic workings of the CodeBox.
The hardware test should be all you need to understand the CodeBoxes, but if you're still a little unsure, then be sure to review:

3. Review and Configure How to Use ShowMojo with CodeBoxes
First, you will want to learn how to Add a Lockbox to a Listing for Prospect Self Showings.
If all the options for lockboxes are not obvious to you, you can consult the Options Available for Prospect Self Showings and Digital Access Devices article to get a more in-depth explanation of each.
Next, you might consider Configuring Lockbox Defaults for All New Listings just so you don't need to update so many configurations on each new listing.
For vendors, you should use Text-to-Access.
Finally, if security is your paramount concern for self-showings, you might configure Extra Security and Notification When a Prospect Accesses a Digital Lockbox.
4. Storing the CodeBoxes
Use the boxes in which the CodeBoxes arrived for storage. This will ensure that the CodeBoxes are stored in a manner where the number buttons are never pressed, thereby preserving battery life.
