I am heading to Portugal next week and staying in an apartment. I will need to open the door using the homeit app, but will not have access to wi-fi. Is this going to work?
Republic does not provide cellular service of any kind including data when outside the U.S. If there’s open WiFi networks available in the neighborhood, you may be able to leverage one of those for the required Internet access.
Otherwise, you would need local (in country) cellular access. May we know, the brand, model and (if applicable) generation of the phone you use with Republic?
You may want reachout to the Homeit folks, it looks like they recently updated the app, but they may offer you some method of getting into the apartment via the app.
