    Terrible

    • Written by from NOTTINGHAM

    It doesn't charge, terrible waste of money. Apple shouldn't have it on the store.

    Broken and can't be repaired

    • Written by from Colburn

    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.

    it constantly beeps and disconnects

    • Written by from København Ø

    Though the idea is great, the hardware (or connect technology with iPhone 5) is filled with errors, my hip key disconnects all the time... not an issue if you have configured the "safe zones", but that doesn't seem to work either.

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

    Don't waste your money!

    • Written by from LONDON

    I live in Argentina and had a friend purchase hipkey in London. Thought it was my answer to many lost iphones. Their quality control department is obviously non existant as my hipkey refused to charge! Thought this might be a basic quality control check . . . not for hipkey. Again, don't waste your money!

    Brilliant value for money

    • Written by

    I have used it for a couple of weeks and it delivers !

    A great little device with many useful features. It's my everyday companion - and never again a forgotten iPhone or lost keys. I am very happy with it ;-)

    Nice design let down by very poor product performance.

    • Written by from Fleet

    At this price looks can't be everything. Sadly this product relies on bluetooth connectivity and therefore performance is poor. The Hip Key consistently needs reconnecting to the app, it loses connectivity and decides to go off whenever it likes. My advice: save your money and frustration. Wait for a better product that fulfils the promise and potential. The right product would be one which markets itself: 'set this up and forget about it' - because thats what the consumer wants and needs. How can this be awarded a red dot if the product does not perform? Egos:1 Customers:0. Great returns service from Apple though!

    Brillant

    • Written by from Plymouth

    Bought this a week ago and it has already paid for its self. Only bad thing i can think of is the app could do with some more work and the ability to turn off tethered mode would also be great. As leaving location setting on it drains the battery. all in all great device.

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Aarhus C

    Great idea for a product, unfortunately it is very poorly executed.

    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.

    Interesting But!!

    • Written by from bewdley

    Good instructions and I set my Hipkey up. Problem is the distances and settings merge into one another.
    I set up for short distances and no alarm came in until 6/7+ metres
    I then tried Medium but it went off after 8/9+ metres

    I did like the the thought of the search and find but unless you can hear the phone or the Hipkey it's no good.

    Overall expensive and dissappointing but interesting

    Not just another Proximity Detection

    • Written by from københavn

    This is really well thought out!

    It could have been just an alarm based on Proximity "lost".
    No no it's so much more and even more than that.
    The feel of the product just shouts *QUALITY* and the app isn't just another HTML5 kind of APP.
    Motiondetect, full duplex "FINDME" so your kid can find you too!.

    This is the kind of technology you just feel is empowerering your life. Giving more freedom, less worries.

    Simple & easy to use good bit of kit

    • Written by from CHESTERFIELD

    I've been playing with this all day I can see it has a lot of potential and for £60 I would say it is worth the money because it looks really cool and is just the right size and shape so when it's attached to your keys doesn't draw attention to itself but looking at it it closer it's very cool, theres a big find me button that looks a bit like the apple home key press this button and it alerts your phone or use the app to find your keys. 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.

    Great Idea I wish that I had thought of this

    • Written by from Harlow

    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.
