  • Great Idea I wish that I had thought of this

    I remember years ago there was a device that made sounded an alarm if you whistled in the proximity of your keys. I got one and I remember years ago there was a device that made sounded an alarm if you whistled in the proximity of your keys. I got one and was disappointed as you had to be in the hearing distance of the keys.

    A free app needs to be downloaded from the app store, but thats not that difficult.

    20 years later there is a new improved version of the keyfinder that has the added benefit of being able to find your phone too.

    There are three main uses for me:-

    1 . Finding lost keys
    2. Finding lost phone
    3. Ensuring that you don't leave anywhere leaving one of these essentials.

    There is a proximity detector that goes of if your devices get separated. Also, a movement detector and child mode (that I don't get)

    Great product, decent app, wish I invented it. The bluetooth range is key to this device.

It's important to remember bluetooth doesn't have a very long range it states 50m but forget about that if your inside, walls etc. effect the signal so even in a three storey house it goes out of range but in a large office or supermarket this is where I think it would get used most, home use not so good.

    They call the device a "hipKey", but note in their FAQ, that it will not work if you put it on your keyring and carry it in your pocket. They added this FAQ _after_ I purchased their product. The result is lots of false alarms, rendering the product literally unusable.

    The iOS app itself is very poorly done. It is unstable, locks-up quite often, settings are sometimes lost, connection to the hipKey is often lost, alerts are not always audible due to apparent bugs in handling of the mute button, distance presets does not affect alarm range and battery life of my iPhone 5 is seriously affected when running the app in the background.

    I would advice against buying this product, it is a waste of money. Pity, it sounds like such a great product when you read about it.

    My Hipkey just stopped working after about 8 months. On emailing the manufacturers about a repair I've had no response. However My Hipkey just stopped working after about 8 months. On emailing the manufacturers about a repair I've had no response. However useful it is it's no use if it's not reliable and the makers can't or won't repair it. I'll also mention that when it did work it is quite clunky and inconvenient to set up. Also it only supports 1 divide and as I have an iPhone and an iPad that is a major disadvantage.

    in the end, a very plastic kind of expensive key hanger.
