Allow single appliance access to non HA users


I wonder if there’s a way to allow single switch or automation trigger with HA to anybody not in my HA installation.

I explain a possible use case.

Imagine the plumber is coming to repair a tap in my garden when I’m not at home. I have an automatic door to access the garden. I’d like to send him through WhatsApp or telegram a link or something similar to allow him enter. Of course, I’d made it only work in the time span he’s supposed to come. This won’t be a problem, I think.

I have no idea if this is possible with HA and if so, what would I need. Any ideas or help will be welcome.

Thanks for reading.
