    hipkey is perfect !!!

    • Written by

    hipkey is nicely designed and its features work just perfect. I have been surprised how robust it actually is. I use hipkey to find my keys and hipkey has once helped me not to forget my iPhone at a Mall when shopping. I love this device. Recommended for anyone.

    Excellent product that works as described

    • Written by

    I have not had any issues with the app or hipkey not functioning exactly as described. 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.

    Very handy everyday device. love it.

    • Written by

    I have had hipkey for 5 months now and praise it every day. The neat little device helps me keep track on my iPhone when needed. I travel a lot and here hipkey comes in very handy to ensure me I never leave behind my iPhone. hipkey has smart features like the SafeZone (mutes alarms at specified locations like your Home or Office) and Motion Mode which makes hipKey an instant movement alarm that can protect your bag or purse from theft. I use this feature at restaurants etc.

    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.

    No good services from the manufacturer from the Hipkey

    • Written by from Haelen

    The device won't pair at any moment. The manufacturer did not respond to any of my mails. The quick and good solution came from the Apple store itself by responding to send it back and refunding my money.

    Disappointed by the number of false alarms

    • Written by from Chelsea

    To many false alarms within the safe zone, then the annoying messages on the phone telling me I have the device disconnected. I planned on keeping the device in my laptop bag so when I leave the house I don't forget my phone but you can't hear it in the bag with the car running, louder with volume control would be nice after they fix the false alarm problems. I would not recommend this product.

    Lots of false alarms

    • Written by from San Francisco

    There's so much about this product to love. The concept. The product design. The great features. The solid construction.

    Unfortunately, I think there's some issues that hopefully can be fixed with future software or firmware updates. Basically, I get lots of false alarms and randoms beeps and alerts.

    I even set up a "safe zone" for my entire apartment and a little beyond, but I still got beeps and alerts when I went to the bathroom. I guess the bluetooth couldn't go through the 2-3 walls between my kitchen and bathroom, so it alerted me.

    Recently I was sitting in a waiting room before an appointment and it went off twice. One time my iPhone was in my left pocket and my hipKey in the right. The second time my iPhone was in my hand literally a couple inches from my hipKey. I was playing a game, so maybe it interrupted the bluetooth or hipKey app. The hipKey was set to vibrate only, but still beeped, which was a bit embarrassing in a quiet room.

    I'm still love the idea of the product and bet that it will be improved with software updates. If you don't mind being an early adopter and dealing with false alarms along the way, I'd get it now.

    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.

    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 :-)

    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.

    Does what it promesses... And better

    • Written by from Drummondville

    It's a wonderfull piece of hardware that works very well, almost no false signal. Pairing is easy and connection holds well to its advertized specs... I charge every 5-7 days only... Worth the price... Would buy a second one!

    FALSE ALARMS ALL DAY

    I have gone through 2 of these -- great in theory but there are too many false alarms to make this useful. I have the Keningston ones too and although they do not have the safe zones I did not get one false alarm

    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 !

    • 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 !!!!

    It saved me from loosing my iPhone 5 yesterday - I love my hipkey !!

    • Written by

    I am so happy for my hipkey. When driving in a cab I didn't notice that my iPhone had slipped out of the back pocket of my trousers and was lying on the back seat. After paying I left the cab and started walking away. Within seconds I was warned by the loud hipkey alarm and I ran back to the cab and found my iPhone again. I praise my hipkey for rescuing my iPhone this time.

    Generally I find hipkey very robust and reliable. Connects quickly and stays connected when in reach. The range is quite good and the safe zone feature is excellent.

    The motion alarm is handy as well. I use it to protect my computer bag when going on business trips.

    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.
