Keys at Östra Torn

At Östra Torn we have two types of apartments, 1 bedroom apartments, and shared 2 bedroom apartments. For the 1 bedroom apartments, there are regular keys. For the shared 2 bedroom apartments electronic locks and tags are used. Read below for instructions on how to use this type of lock and key.

1 Bedroom apartments

These have regular locks and keys. Twist the key one way to unlock and the other way to lock the door.

2 Bedroom apartments

How to unlock the door to your room:

1. Hold the key against the tag reader
2. When you see the green light, turn the reader to unlock.

How to lock the door to your room:

  2. When you see the green light, turn the reader the other way to lock.

Potential problems

  • If you turn the reader too hard the lock might complain and start blinking red. Turn the reader back just a little bit to fix this issue.
  • If you are experiencing a problem with your lock or key, please make a fault report.
