Using CBS Codes
Every KeyBox contains a Call Before Showing
(CBS) code that your Association/Board/MLS can
The CBS code allows the listing agent to control KeyBox access by requiring the
showing agent to call for authorization before opening the KeyBox.
If the CBS code is active in a KeyBox every showing agent must enter the CBS code into
their key before accessing the KeyBox.
If the CBS code is active in a KeyBox, it will show as CBS on in KIM Web,
under the 'View Existing KeyBoxes' screen for that KeyBox.
Certain affiliated keyholders ALWAYS need a CBS code to access the KeyBox, even if CBS is
set to off.
Entering a CBS Code Into Your Key
to turn your ActiveKEY on.
- Scroll to "Call Before Showing' and press Enter.
- Enter the CBS code and press
Once you’ve entered the CBS code for a particular KeyBox into your ActiveKEY, follow the standard
procedure for releasing the key container. You can access the KeyBox until the listing agent changes
the KeyBox or until you enter a CBS code for a different KeyBox.
