The following access devices have been authorized for use in TCMLS.

Brand Model/Serial
Masterlock 5422D
ZHEGE lockbox 402-Black

MLS-approved access devices must provide reasonable, timely access to listed property such that (1) it allows all participants and subscribers timely access to listed property by reliance solely on data submitted to and residing on the MLS; (2) complete, accurate and stand-alone instructions are provided for accessing the listed property in the appropriate agent section on the Service; and (3) it ensures that the lockbox or device will provide reasonable access to listed property with any information, code or key needed to access the contents of the lockbox or device to be made available or access to the property otherwise scheduled within four [4] hours of initial contact in the event the lockbox or device requires the participating member to obtain additional information to enable access (ex: “call listing agent for entry code”) with said 4 hour response obligation in effect every day from 8am to 6pm. Leaving a voicemail or sending a text-message will meet the initial requirement and start the 4-hour response obligation for the listing agent. Access devices are reviewed by the MLS twice a year (January and July).
