    Don't waste your money or time!

    • Written by from New York

    In theory this would be a great product. I'm not going to go over what its features are since they're in their product description. Sounds great. But I encountered numerous problems. First the unit gave off some false alarms when my iPhone and the key were next to each other. Not safe zone beeps but full fledged alarms. Walking around the safe zone with your phone and the key together produced numerous beeping sounds for no apparent reason. Secondly their support doesn't bother to answer email questions. Probably overwhelmed because the product malfunctions a lot. Thirdly after a week the hipkey just kept shutting off for no apparent reasonafter being fully charged so I just returned it to the apple store for a refund. Buggy with poor support makes this a promising product with too many problems. Don't waste your time or money.

    10 points for hipkey's design, ease of use and features. Get one !

    • Written by

    The team behind hipkey has done an excellent job in making a tech gadget a non complicated beneficial consumer device. Who hasn't had trouble finding their phone now or then or who hasn't left for work realizing 5 miles down the road that the phone is still at home. hipKey has made a very convincing solution to overcome these problems.

    Hipkey is very reliable and looks and feels great. And cheap too for what it does.

    Super job hippih team.

    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!

    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.

    The App is very straight forward and easy to change settings and distance

    In the beginning I have spent some time getting things just right for me

    Love new innovations like this

    • Written by

    I came across hipkey in the Apple store in NYC when asking the staff about something new and cool for my iPhone 5.

    Now after using hipkey for 5 weeks I can say I love it. It helps me keep track of my keys and iPhone everywhere I go. I have it on all the time and never had any false alarms. I set the alarm distance to Long and have set up several safe zone's. I will recommend this setting for other hipkey users as well.

    This is the best accessory I have come accross this year. Keep them coming guys.

    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.

    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.

    I wish I had invented hipkey myself

    • Written by

    What a super nice product.

    I like the sales pack. It is very informative and allowed me to see it before opening the package. It has a magnetic closure. The box itself can be used for other storage purposes afterwards.

    The quick-guide is easy to understand and when following the guidelines, it more or less paired itself to my iPhone. I like that because this is often the difficult part. hipkey has been connected ever since. When disconnected after getting out of range it will quickly re-connect when within sight. I tried it after 24 hours, and it still re-connected. This is really good to know when you one day are looking for something.

    My wife tried the movement alarm on our sleeping baby, when she visited some friends last weekend for coffee. She got an alarm on her iPhone seconds after our baby started moving. The movement sensor is quite accurate.

    The App is a bit trivial but easy to use and setup. I have found that long distance works best for my usage. Medium and especially Short distance is often not enough. The safezone feature is really well thought through. Without it at home or in my office I would get frustrated. Imaging going down for a coffee and getting alarms because I didn't bring my house keys with me? Safezone takes care of that, and it actually works without human interaction after setting it up. This is unique. Love it.

    I am lacking more specific product information on the company website. I hope the hippih guys will have that sorted asap.

    Great companion

    • Written by

    Got Hipkey as a present from my thoughtful husband. Never thought I needed one until I got Hipkey. What a clever invention. I often misplace my keys and now I can find them anywhere in the house from my iPhone. It saves me lots of stressful time on the way out.

    I am not tech-savy, so great to experience that the pairing happened automatically after just opening the app. Never experienced this before. The App is easy to use, change settings and set it up. One of the features I find excellent is the safezone feature. Based on my location, hipkey will automatically mute unwanted alarms, when Hipkey and my iPhone gets too far away from each other. Works like a charm. When I leave my house it exits the safezone a few houses away and it enters the safezone when I park my car on the driveway. Great.

    The only feature I miss is being able to get a location on my hipkey. In case I leave it behind somewhere and my iPhone isn't connected to it, I cannot find it anymore.

    Impressive range, beautiful design and a real lifesaver

    • Written by from Copenhagen

    The look and feel of this device says it all: High quality and great design. I am impressed with the range and have been saved on a couple of occasions. I have already thought of fun and innovative uses for my hipKey and it follows me everywhere! The set-up was as easy to figure out as an Apple app should be. Enjoy the motion sensor and be prepared for an audible alarm that works.

    Looks Great, But Does Not Work. Horribly Disappointed.

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I was very excited to get hipKey and was one if the first people in the U.S. to order and get hipKey. Unfortunately, the product is entirely unusable and is being retuned immediately.

    Specifically, after first causing my iPhone 5 to reboot (ok, one malfunction is not a deal-breaker), hipKey then keeps sounding the alarm, even though it and my iPhone are in the same room or are just one room apart! And, yes, this keeps happening -- and I and my family keep getting woken up during the course of the night -- even with our having (A) changed the hipKey alarm setting to wide range and (B) set up a hipKey "Safe Zone" around our home.

    So, our excited expectation for hipKey is now complete disappointment and the product is being returned immediately. :(

    Wonderful meaningful product

    After 10 weeks with hipkey I have come to love the device. hipkey is elegant, easy to use and very reliable in maintaining a connection and re-connecting when close to my iPhone. It has nice extra features like the safe zone and motion alarm (detecting instant movements). I'd recommend this great little accessory for everyone. My wife is getting one for Mothers Day :-)

    hipKey rocks

    This is the best money spend ever. hipkey helps me find my phone and key's at any time. Motion mode I use for looking after my camera accessories while shooting for customers.

    I keep hipkey in my keyring with other keys. So far no major no scratches etc. on hipKey. It looks nice, feels robust and material selection is very good.

    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.

    my new friend for life ..

    • Written by

    My new friend for life .. is probably an overstatement but nevertheless this is how I feel for hipkey today. It is very nicely designed and has a great feel to it. One thing I think is very well considered is the protected buttons inside of the 'circle'. Imagine the false button presses, if the keys had been on the outer surface, whenever it is placed in a pocket?

    The App was easy to download and connect to hipKey and I appreciate the user interface for its ease of use and simplicity. It took me less than 5 minutes to understand how it is setup and operates.

    The Bluetooth distance is not super long indoor but better than what I have seen on wireless headsets previously. It easily reaches from one room to another. Here the safezone feature comes to play. It is super handy. I have made one safezone in my Office and one at Home. Now hipKey automatically detects, when I am at one of these places, and it lets me move freely here without any alarms even if the two devices disconnects!!

    I miss that the App doesn't allow volume alarms when my iPhone is muted. I would also like hipkey to be able to connect to both my iPhone and iPad at the same time.

    Mine works !

    • Written by

    I cannot say I have had any problems with my hipKey. I love it !!!

    Bluetooth is known for its limitations on distance, but I find this device actually does quite well. A quick test outdoor showed I could get more than 164 feet away before the alarm occurred. I tested this with both my new iPhone5 and old iPhone4S. Almost same distance.

    Indoor is different. The Long distance setting is in my house reduced to less than half the outdoor distance. This is expected when dealing with Bluetooth. The hipkey has a smart solution to the problem, which is safe-zone. With safe-zone the problems with shorter max distance are removed. I don't get any false alarms, and when I want to find my iPhone, hipkey will quick connect to the 'hidden' phone, once it is within reach. Very convenient.

    As a test I have been 'leaving' my house without my iPhone a few times just to see what happens. When picking up hipkey it gives a few beep's (not the alarm sound) every time. Not sure if this is intended but it works as a reminder to me that hipkey is not connected to iPhone when leaving my house. If this is indeed intended, I find this very innovative and useful.

    The max hipKey sound loudness is not great. I can imagine that I would not hear it in a noisy area. but then I do find the vibrator useful when carried in my jeans.

    The app itself is very easy to use and figure out in the beginning. After 5 minutes I had figured out all the basics. I like the wheel, and the way the App is maneuvered with one hand only. The app is very clean, which is nice.

    hipKey itself is super nice. It looks and feels great. Real quality feel all through. The hanger is a bit cheap but I was going to use my own lanyard anyway. Probably most people will do the same anyway, so not a big issue.

    All in all I am very satisfied and so far use my hipkey every day.

    Complete Rubbish

    • Written by from San Diego

    I have had the Hipkey for close to two months now. It won't charge or turn on. Customer service does not get back to me. False alarms constantly when it did work (which was not very often even when it would charge). The alarm would go off when I was driving, if I had my keys in my pocket and was sitting at a table with my phone on the table and even with both my keys and my phone in the same pocket. Not sure why Apple is selling this - its a $100 rip off.
