    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    Bad Batch of Devices?

    • Written by from jacksonville

    I have to agree with the other reviewers. I was very excited and one of the first to order in the US. The device constantly false alarms when its within feet of the iphone. This had such rave reviews im wondering if there are a bad batch of hipkeys out there. I am sending mine back today.

    Great product but does not to one's satisfaction

    • Written by from Mumbai

    I was one of the first person to buy the Hipkey from Apple store. May be on the 3rd day of the product launch. I was very excited to use it, but I was greatly disappointed.

    Im using iphone 5 with iOS 6.0.2 with all the latest updates as on today. Batteries are fully charged on both.

    If you set the alarm distance short, which is most desirable in case if you are doing a public transport travel, ( in case if you forget your phone in a taxi or flight or train ) then the connection keeps on breaking every few seconds or minutes even if the Hipkey is 1 feet away from your iphone 5. ( this happens specially when your phone is busy doing something else, like a email download or iMessage or any other data coming in. ( the blue tooth symbol on phone will keep on blinking / rather fluttering ) and you will get like 20 notifications even if your phone is 1 feet away.

    If you keep the alarm distance medium, this problem is greatly reduce, and if you set the alarm distance to long this problem is almost gone. but in this case you will come to know rather too late if you forget your phone any public transport. So I have rather no choice except to keep the alarm distance at long range.

    The alarm volume is 90db at the absolute source. (point blank range) if you go even two feet away the volume drops to about 65db and it is rather difficult to hear it in crowded busy street of any big city or in a train or at airport. It is best you keep the hipkey in your pocket and keep the vibrator on, there are higher chances you will come to know with vibration on.

    the lanyard supplied with the hipkey is very ordinary and not worth even 0.50 cents. its likes a rubber band. I would recommend buy a stronger lanyard or key ring from travel shop. or you loose the hipkey in the before you get your credit card invoice.

    Good points :

    The battery has a super great life.

    Loved the packaging and the product finish and its user friendliness. Even without going through the manual I could operate the all the functions of the unit.

    also loved the shape of and design of the product, it really looks cool, very futuristic, really nice finish and nice material used to make it.

    I also liked he security tape used to close the box, so if the box is opened even once you will know. its good for buyer as well as seller both.

    Upon contacting the company, the company mentioned that they have new firmware which fixes most of the problem, but it is not possible for user to change the firmware. so the company suggested to send the unit back at my expense to them and they send a new one at their expense.

    the company was very supportive and helpful in resolving the issue.

    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. :(

    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.
