Access your car, home, and hotel room with keys in Wallet on Apple Watch
In the Wallet app on your Apple Watch, you can store keys to your car, home, and hotel room.
Unlock and start your car
With a compatible car and a digital car key in Apple Wallet, you can unlock, lock, and start your car using your iPhone or Apple Watch (Series 6 and later).
See the Apple Support article Add your car key to Apple Wallet on your iPhone or Apple Watch.
Unlock your home
With a compatible smart lock and a home key in Wallet, you can unlock your door with just a tap of your iPhone or Apple Watch. You add a home key to Apple Wallet with the Home app on your iPhone.
When you have a home key on your iPhone or Apple Watch, just place your device near the lock to unlock it. You can use the Home app or an app from the lock’s manufacturer to share access with other people.
To set up a home key, follow these steps:
Add a supported lock to the Home app on your iPhone.
Choose an unlocking option.
Express Mode: Unlock the door just by holding your iPhone or Apple Watch near the lock.
Require Face ID or Passcode: Hold your device near the lock, then use Face ID or Touch ID to unlock it.
Choose automations such as Lock After Door Closes and Lock When Leaving Home.
If the lock you add supports HomeKit, all residents of your household receive the home key automatically.
See Unlock your door with a home key on iPhone in the iPhone User Guide.
Unlock your hotel room
At participating hotels, you can add your room key to Apple Wallet from the hotel provider’s app, check in without going to the lobby, and use your iPhone or Apple Watch to unlock your room.
See the Apple Support article Add a hotel room key to Apple Wallet on your iPhone.
