    nice looking product, and a nice touch as well.
    app looks great ,and works very well.
    after 3 minutes of working with the Hipkey nice looking product, and a nice touch as well.
    app looks great ,and works very well.
    after 3 minutes of working with the Hipkey and app it is a no brainer to use it.
    works very well at even a much longer distance (up to 100 meter and more!
    the safe zone function is brilliant.
    this product stays on my keyring, sitting in the cab i lost my iPhone and going out to get my case from the trunk, i got an alarm from the Hipkey! it saved one iPhone getting lost for me.

    Just received today, and most everything works as described except I am experiencing many false alarms and only when the hipkey an Just received today, and most everything works as described except I am experiencing many false alarms and only when the hipkey and the iphone are in my pocket (hipkey in my front pant pocket and iphone in the back, to be more precise.) As I am walking or even driving in my vehicle, the alarm mode (both phone and hipkey) sounds and silences on its own. Seems something is causing interference or a lost BT signal. So far, I'm not thrilled.

Tried everything. Switched outlets, chargers, USB plug and it never even pretended to charge. I cannot believe Apple is standing by this product! Don't waste your time, don't waste your money. Hey APPLE, there are some considerable issues with the Hipkey. Why do you even sell this? It is SUBSTANDARD and not up to the quality consumers expect when shopping at the Apple store.

    Save yourself some headache. I saw some negative reviews, but in view of some positive and also because it sold on Apple's store Save yourself some headache. I saw some negative reviews, but in view of some positive and also because it sold on Apple's store I gave it a chance.

    Problems:
    1. Buggy and even slowed down an Iphone 5S. It has to be really bad coding for the App.
    2. The App has a lot of bells and whistles, but in reality most of it is just gimmicks. The distance control (sensitivity) is a joke.
    3. The unit is constantly loosing connection with the phone and does not get reconnected automatically when near. You need to bring up the app and then it connects. I think that the main issue is that it wants to own the Bluetooth connection to the device instead of letting IOS do what it does best.
    4. Now for the killer. The bad reviews about the battery not lasting are true. Battery or unit stop taking charge after only 45 days of use
    5. Now for the worse yet. Customer service from the company is nonexistent. It is based in Europe or Australia. Sorry, I am not wasting my time and money to ship garbage overseas to get another garbage.

    In my view this is a nice mechanical design with poor software and electronics material implementation. Even my cheap shower Bluetooth speaker has a better reception (for music mind you) much further than the distance this would loose connection.

    Can you imagine having to carry the phone and hipkey and the key holder holding it all around the house when just going upstairs in your house with the phone? The safe zone feature is mostly a gimmick so that you don't observe the high amount of false alarms when the unit is used outside the safe zones you set. It should be called Quiet zone (most of the time)
