This guide will walk you through the process of sharing a Temporary Event QR code key with your guests using the CellGate App. Temporary Event Virtual Keys are ideal for one-time events like parties, and can be easily shared via text or email.

Temporary Event Keys are a feature available with all Watchman multi-family access control solutions.

Steps to Share a Temporary Event Key

  1. Save the Key: Once you have set up your virtual key, tap “Save”. A pop-up will appear asking if you would like to share the virtual key now or later.
  2. Share Now:
    • Tap “Share”. This will bring up the sharing methods available on your phone, such as contacts, email, browser, and other methods.
    • Select the desired sharing method and send the key to the recipients.
  3. Share Later:
    • If you choose to share later, you will be taken back to the main invite screen.
    • When you are ready to send the key, tap the share icon to the right of the key’s name.
    • Ensure you are on the “Temporary Event Key” tab.
    • Select the method of sharing native to your phone and send out the key.


Sharing QR codes via various methods is a convenient way to provide secure, temporary access for events. If you have any questions, our dedicated CellGate support team is always here to help you.
