    hipkey simple but beautiful

    • Written by

    Ready, set, go in less than 1 minutes. Great App to make it happen so smoothly.

    I love the design and the features. I use motion mode to watch my computer bag with Apple products when visiting clients and alarm mode when I am moving around.

    Usage is better than expected. Much longer alarm distance than all other similar devices I have come across.

    The team behind hipkey is very supportive. I submitted my question on their web and next day was called up by someone from the organisation. Problem was resolved within 5 minutes and I could move on. I encourage others to do the same.

    A clever product that works well

    • Written by from SOLANA BEACH

    I've used the hipKey for 3 weeks and it's worked well. I've been using it just in its Alarm mode to prevent me from leaving either my keys or my iPhone 5 behind. On a few occasions I used the app to help find my keys. (Push a button on the app and the hipKey sounds a gentle alarm.). I initially had a problem with it going off a couple of times unexpectedly, with the phone and device side by side. I changed my case from a metal wrap around (Element) case to a plastic case and it then worked perfectly. Wonder what that case does to my cellular signal?) I've dropped my keys with the hipKey attached, and even in a puddle once, and it continues to work fine. On one occasion I walked away from a table in a restaurant with the phone on the table and my keys in my pocket, and the hipKey alarm went off, reminding me I left the phone behind. I'm finding this to be an excellent product, ruggedly built, that works as promised.

    hipkey, find your keys, is magic !!

    • Written by

    I got hipkey to make it find my keys for me. I can never find them and get confused if I have them with me after closing and auto-locking the door. It has happened more times I have had to spend 100$ to have my front door opened by a locksmith. This is more than what I spent on one hipKey !

    Hipkey does not have to have other features enabled at the same time as Find-Me. This is exactly what I wanted.

    The battery is great. So far after three weeks I still haven't had to charge it.

    Works beautifully

    • Written by

    I have used it every day since I got it, and haven't had any issues with this device at all.

    Be prepared to use hipKey a few days to learn how to use it in the right way. I did. After that there is no point of return. It is absolutely great and the consumer promise 100% fulfilled.

    At first I got a few false alarms but I quickly learned to set alarm distance to medium or long (best result) and then setup safe zone's, which is an excellent feature. If you don't already use safe zones, then do so as it is an important feature for the overall experience. I also learned not to carry hipkey or iPhone tightly enclosed to the body. Bluetooth is not well suited for that in general and the result can be a degrease of max connection distance between iPhone and hipKey.



    I normally do not loose my things but it happened one week ago that my iPhone slipped out of my pocket while sitting on the back seat in a yellow cab. When leaving the cab, my phone was still on the back seat. Luckily hipkey warned me and I could run to stop the cab and immediately get my iPhone back. So happy with hipKey that day! Another observation with hipKey is that after carrying it, I have become more aware about not leaving any of my valuables behind where ever I am. This it in self is really beneficial.

    Finally this morning I downloaded the new hipKey app and found it now overrules the mute button. My one complaint has now disappeared.

    Great work hipKey team. I'd recommend hipKey to everyone I know.

    never loose your keys anymore with HipKey

    • Written by

    Tried another similar product last year but was disappointed with it's short range and limited battery life. Hipkey is a completely different experience. In my house, two levels, 1800 square feet, I almost get full coverage and I have had no need for recharging so far after two weeks.

    I loose my car keys often but now with hipkey I save a lot of time finding them. Even when in my handbag, my iPhone reaches out to them every time. I love it.

    The movement alarm gave me some trouble to start with as I didn't know how to turn it off. But after learning the trick I have had no issues with it. Used HipKey with this feature as a baby alarm to monitor my sleeping grandchild the other day. When she woke and moved my iPhone warned me. Nice feature with many purposes.

    I rate it 5 stars because of it's convenient features, friendly iPhone 5 App and good quality make.

    2 minutes and you are set to go. Like it !

    • Written by

    My first experience with hipKey is very good. I like it's look, the materials used and the quality feel it has. The product is easily unpacked and the quick-guide tell's you everything required to pair and get started. All done in less than 2 minutes, very seamless and intuitive.

    The App works like a charm. It has an Apple feel to it. Is very easy to operate, even without a manual in front of you. I did have problems with moving the pairing from iPhone to my iPad but with assistance of the HipKey team, who responded very quickly after contacting them, I used the hipKey demo video on youtube to make it happen.

    I like the safe zone feature a lot. What a great concept. Unwanted alarms are normally unavoidable with these short-range wireless Bluetooth devices, but safe zone prevents them in a very intuitive way. One extra Star for that.

    So far I only have deeper experience with Alarm Mode. The max. distance is quite okay. I find the short distance a bit too short so I use medium or long distance. Alerts on Hipkey is quite high.

    Overall I recommend my friends to get one, and I got one more for my girlfriend, who looses her key's a lot ;-) I'll ask her to report her findings here as well.

    Great device, great friend and very reliable!

    • Written by from Apeldoorn

    I have my Hipkey for 6 weeks now, never had a problem with this device.
    It looks great, feels great and really warns me as promised. Attached tot my keyring it beeps when I leave the safe zone, a brilliant finding of this device. Even at my busy work at the hospital, where mobiles of my colleges were lost or stolen (3 x!) it works through all the massive walls, although the distance is less than outdoor ofcourse, which is as expected. The app is superb, attractive and easy to use. The Hipkey became one of my reliable friends, keeping gard over my Iphone and helping me to trace my keys or Iphone at home or where ever I go. For the reviewers with less positive experiences, I hope that Apple will replace your Hipkey with one that works properly, it’s a brand new product with great properties! Thank you Hippih and Apple for my new friend!

    Great little invention that made my life a little easier

    • Written by

    What made me like it:
    ------------------

    - Very simple to pair first time and has worked ever since.

    - Looks nice.

    - The App is very user friendly, just perfect for a non-tech person like me.

    - Long range. Measured up to 230 feet in sight so far.

    - The re-chargeable battery lasts for a long time. After 2,5 weeks still no charging needed.

    - Key's are protected for false pressed while carried on me.

    - The mixture of features. Distance and Movement alarm in one device.



    How it made my life a little easier:
    -----------------------------

    - Great 'Find Me' feature that helps me keeping track on where I put down my iPhone all the time (normally a big problem to me).

    - When taking my youngest grandchild to the mall to shop. I put hipKey on him and the App in Child Mode. He has more fun and I can shop relaxed, because I know he is around close by me.

    - Not having to worry about leaving my iPhone somewhere. I know the likelihood of that happening is little, but just by carrying Hipkey with me, my awareness of looking out for my iPhone has increased, so it has a very good preventive effect as well as hipKey actually watching out for my phone.



    Future wishes:
    ------------

    - Maps in safe-zone starts far away from where I am.

    - App reminds me if I by mistake turned off the Alarm Mode (switch in top right corner).

    This is a must have gadget

    • Written by

    Bought it for me but my teenager son 'stole' it, so I now have to get another one for myself.

    Do you know the situation of always coming late out of the door because your kid cannot find his stuff, like his phone or keys. Well don't be stressed anymore because hipkey takes care of that. It creates a wireless connection to his iPhone and then hereafter serves to locate his iPhone or keys (with hipKey attached) at any time. Super time saver.

    The app is very easy to use and navigate with one hand only.

    Only feature I miss is a radar function to see how far away my hipkey is from me. Hope the developers will add that feature in an upcoming App release.

    Cool device. Great App.

    • Written by

    I have been using hipkey for two weeks and it just works like a charm despite what is written elsewhere. I have only had great experiences with hipkey. Hipkey was up and running 1 minute after getting it out of the box and I have had a reliable connection ever since day and night.

    What I like is the look and feel of hipkey itself. It's clean design, high-end materials and the excellent App, which is a story in itself. Intutiative interface, simple to use and apple like designed.

    Some prefer longer lasting coin cell batteries. Not me! For one I care about the environment and do not want to buy new batteries all the time and secondly I never remember which coin cell battery I need unless I bring the old one with me to the shop. They all look alike. hipkey has a rechargeable battery. After two weeks usage I haven't charged it once and still have 2/3 power left. Not bad at all.

    Overall very satisfied with my hipkey and recommend it to my friend and family.

    Well done Hippih.

    Great Device!

    • Written by from Austin

    I recently received the hipKey device, and I have to say, I've been quite impressed with its functionality thus far. Among my friends, I'm notorious for forgetting where I've left my car keys and my phone, so the hipKey will do wonders for memory retrieval when that time comes!

    The device itself is great. I love how small it is - I was worried that my car keys wouldn't fit in a small purse with the device attached, but that's not the case at all. And the fact that the alarm button is located within the crescent helps ensure that I don't accidentally set it off when shoving the device in a pocket or purse.

    My favorite part about the hipKey is the App. The UI is great - everything was nicely laid out making it so simple to understand. Plus, I really like that each mode is designated with a different color, making it easy for me to know which mode I have set.

    Glad there's a device like this on the market! I'm looking forward to using it for a long time.

    Stylish gadget

    • Written by

    I'm not a gadget kind a girl, but having left my phone behind or simply misplacing it way too many times, I invested in Hipkey. I love it! Not only do I remember my phone, but the movement alarm is really clever, and makes me feel safe while leaving my phone in my bag. Unlike other reviews, I had no problems in the safe zone?

    Guess I'm a gadget girl after all - this is now my favorite accessory.

    Lots of useful use cases ;-)

    • Written by

    Have not yet had the chance to try the hipKey´s full potential. But having lost many devices over the years, this product will save me a lot of money and trouble. I am sure the hipKey´s "Motion Mode" will come in handy when i am travelling. This would have been the perfekt product to bring in the days i was backpacking in South America.

    A friendly advice, read the userguide carefully and notice the demo provided in the App, as it quickly gives you the full understanding and value of the utilities.

    The "Safe Zone" feature is well thought out. After setting the Safe Zone in my home, i hardly get any falce alarms.

    Saved my iPhone

    • Written by

    I mainly bought Hipkey because of the find feature. I was hoping it could help me to stop spending stressful time in the morning searching for my iPhone or keys. It has been a success, the searching is now over, I just use the find feature and the sound guides me to my iPhone or keys. It’s a great relief.

    Yesterday Hipkey past it’s test and saved my iPhone. I was at a café with my friend and when we left I overlooked my iPhone on the table, which also was quite cluttered with tableware etc. Just as we walked outside the Hipkey started to alarm me. At first I was embarrassed over the noise my new nice looking Hipkey was making, but then I quickly realized that it actually was telling me that I left my iPhone behind. I went from being embarrassed to being amazed, and my girlfriend went straight home and order one :)

    This product gives me peace of mind in the mornings and has already saved my iPhone once. I love it.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I have not had any issues with the app or device not functioning exactly as described. Alert tones are clear, loud, and non-annoying. Bluetooth connection happens very quickly from within the app itself, no need to go to "settings", "bluetooth", and wait for pairing. The app is eye-appealing, clear, and easy to use. I am very satisfied with this product.

    I used it on my kid in the park and is works beautifully - but the primary function for me is not leaving my iPhone behind.
