    value for money!

    • Written by from Apeldoorn

    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.

    Works as described but many false alarms

    • Written by from Denver

    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.

    how to avoid false alarms

    • Written by

    One review has mentioned false alarms. I don't get any false alarms on my hipkey. The connection is very reliable once established and the reach is quite good. Outdoor I get 450 feet between my iPhone and hipkey when they are in line of sight. Indoor the range is less but still acceptable. It depends on the rooms, doors, construction materials etc.

    The trick not to get unwanted alarms is to use the excellent safezone feature. I have set up safezone's in my home, office, parents place and a few other places. My iPhone registers every time I enter and exit a safezone. hipkey does not alarm when being inside a safezone. Its a great feature.

    I noticed that hipkey sometimes makes 2-3 beeps when I pick it up inside a safezoe. First I thought this was an alarm. I contacted the vendor and they told me it is not an alarm but a "safezone notification". Here is how it works:

    When hipkey has entered a safezone it will not sound the normal distance alarms. If hipkey looses its connection to its iPhone it will start monitoring if it is moved (it uses the build in movement sensor). When moved hipkey will make 3 notification beeps to inform me that it is not connected to my iPhone. The vendor told me this feature is meant to warn you, that you are about to leave your safezone without your iPhone. Very handy feature to prevent you from leaving behind your iPhone when you go to work in the morning.

    I have come to like the feature very much but also recommended to the vendor that they make this feature optional in the hipkey App. Not all might like this feature. They promised to look into it.

    Great Device !

    • Written by

    I have used hipkey for 8 weeks every day since I got it. I have hipkey connected to my iPhone 5 and use the Alarm mode to protect my iPhone. The initial pairing was very easy. Hereafter it took me a few days to get to know the technology behind hipkey (e.g. Bluetooth), which made me find out about the safe zone and set a handful of them up. Now hipkey is connected to my keys and just follows me around together with my phone.

    Using hipkey has made me more aware about where and how I use my phone and made me more careful not to leave it behind by mistake somewhere (has happened before).

    Battery performance is very good. Only one re-charge so far and still two bars to go. The battery effect on my iPhone is minimal. I still have one day on a full charge on the phone as before.

    I have used the other modes a few times. E.g. child-mode on my 4 year old son when being in a crowded supermarket. The experience was quite okay. hipKey helped me not to be concerned about if he was too far away, if I didn't see him for a moment. It felt like a quite reliable experience. Motion mode has also been used to monitor my bag while being in a restaurant. No one touched my bag but when I went to get it I right way got an alarm :)

    Overall I am very satisfied with my hipkey. It is a very reliable and high quality device, which I find easy to use and securing to carry. To all of you in doubt of buying hipkey I can only give it my warmest recommendations. Real value for money !!!!

    hipkey lost and found

    • Written by

    I got hipkey for my son who never can find his keys before leaving the house. We all had to get involved finding his keys with delays and frustrations as a consequence. Then hipKey came along and that has been a great solution for him.

    hipKey is not turned off and neither is the App. Find Me works instantly when the two devices are connected. Also after a long time in between an established connection. A quick walk through the house will find hipKey - guaranteed.

    Now my son also started to use Alarm mode and Motion mode. Both works very well. He likes hipKey a lot.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I have had the Hipkey on me for a few weeks now. I think it is an excellent product. I often tend forget or run around for either my keys or my iPhone when leaving the house or the office - and on several occasions Hipkey helped me solve this in a very efficient way. Once you have set up the safe zones the HipKey is working pretty smoothly, only on a few occasions have I experienced bluetooth connection outage, mainly due to physical factors. I'm actually pretty impressed by the connection stability, range and coverage of the device so far.

    Also I think that there is a lot more than just find your keys. I have been toying around with the motion mode using the device as a door alarm/notification, when the door opens I'm alerted that someone is coming home. Also I really enjoy the product design, there is a hedonic and exclusive quality to it, and an ease of use that certainly justifies the price level.

    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.

    Well spend

    • Written by

    I'm done forgetting my iPhone at home and leaving it behind in the car.

    This product is a life saver and a great peace of mind. It was easy to pair the Hipkey and I love how quickly in the App you can change the volumes and modes - not to forget - hit the find Hipkey button. Actually my kids and I have been playing "hideNSeek" with this feature - hide the Hipkey and seek it with the iPhone :)

    The Bluetooth 4.0 is outstanding, I have not had a Bluetooth product with such a long range. It says 164 feet, but I have gone far beyond that in line of sight. I guess the write 164 feet range because Bluetooth signals do get interrupted by e.g. walls, your body etc.

    The Safe Zone feature is quiet interesting and well thought through, it's sort of a alarm free zone. It's a great workaround to the limitations of Bluetooth. The devices can move around within the zone without making alarms, but then again the devices make a notification if leaving the zone disconnected. Actually Hipkey makes 2-3 beeps if it's moved and is disconnected at the same time in a Safe Zone.

    This product has exceed my expectations and I will recommend it to people like me, that has a tendency to leave behind their iPhone :)
