FAQ Summary for New Supra iBoxes

The St. Louis Association of REALTORS® is upgrading our current SUPRA iBoxes to the new, low-energy Bluetooth BT LE iBoxes!! See below for an FAQ summary of information about the upcoming Keybox Exchange:

QUESTION: Where will the Keybox Exchange be held?
ANSWER: The DoubleTree Hotel Westport (Plaza Ballroom) | 1973 Craigshire Rd | Saint Louis MO 63146

QUESTION: What are the dates of the Keybox Exchange?
ANSWER: March 31, April 1 and April 2, 2014

QUESTION: What are the times of the Keybox Exchange?
ANSWER: The Exchange hours will be 9:00 to 4:00 each of the three days, March 31, April 1 and April 2, 2014. A schedule will be sent soon to each SUPRA System participant listing a specific day and time slot each participant should use. Please look for that in an upcoming e-mail.

QUESTION: What is the cost of the Keybox Exchange?
ANSWER: No cost other than your time, which is extremely valuable. It will be a one for one swap. For each old SUPRA iBox brought to the Keybox Exchange you will receive one new SUPRA Bluetooth BT LE iBox.

QUESTION: What are the advantages of the new Bluetooth BT LE iBoxes?
ANSWER: There are a number of advantages. The key ones are summarized below. More information will be coming shortly:

  • More models of smartphones and tablets communicate directly with the BT LE iBoxes. No additional hardware is required for most phones including the newest models of the iPhone and the iPad.  Translation: Very few devices will now require a FOB or iPhone adapter. Only the older versions of the iPhone or iPad will required a small adapter. You can check your device’s compatibility at Compatible eKEY Device List.
  • The key container is much larger and now has the capability to hold several keys and/or gate cards at once.
  • The shackles now more seamlessly remove from the boxes for easy handling when placing a box on a property.
  • Fresh batteries!! – the new BT LE iBoxes will all have long-life lithium batteries, replacing the aging iBoxes we are currently using. This will greatly reduce service disruption because of low batteries or battery failures. The Bluetooth technology will also enable “auto shut off” when the boxes aren’t being used to further preserve battery life.

Who should attend the Keybox Exchange?
ANSWER: If you are a broker or an agent who owns any of the current SUPRA iBoxes, you will need to attend this Keybox Exchange. We recommend that you be as organized as you can and bring all your old iBoxes at same time to your assigned slot.

QUESTION: Are our keys being changed – or just the boxes?
ANSWER: This is extremely important – This not a key exchange or upgrade. Boxes only. Brokers need to emphasize this with their agents, particularly those who do not own any boxes. All our current devices, the ActiveKEY and the current eKEY devices, will all work with the new boxes.  SUPRA will make available services at the Keybox Exchange for members who wish to upgrade their ActiveKEYS to E-keys but that is strictly optional. More information on that will be following.

QUESTION: Where can I get more information?
ANSWER: This is a preliminary notification, meant to alert you of this upcoming event along with the dates and times. More information will soon be available on the Association web site. Also, please look for a notification very soon which will list your individual day and time slot to attend. In the meantime you can check out more information about the Bluetooth BT LE iBox by clicking here.

Thank you for renewing your 2014 membership with SLAR and we look forward to a smooth Keybox Exchange and a great new benefit for all our REALTORS®!

New iBoxes Available at SLAR

The SUPRA Box Exchange is over. Thanks to all of our members, particularly the brokers and agents who own their boxes, for an an amazing five weeks of cooperation and hard work.

We can no longer exchange old boxes for new ones. If you still have old boxes you may try to sell them online via Craig’s List or a similar e-forum. Other real estate associations across the country are still using the old boxes and there is a market for them among REALTORS® in those areas.

We have the new SUPRA Bluetooth BTLE iBoxes for sale at the Association for $129.99 each.

For questions please call Emily Whitlock at 314.576.0033 or email at
