How does the Tedee desktop portal work?

Manage multiple locks and users via a convenient desktop interface. Log in to your Tedee account on the internet browser to access more features and advanced options.

Imagine you’re responsible for access management at your company. You overlook two offices, each protected with multiple smart locks. All of these are used by hundreds of people every day.
