HIPKEY IS A REVOLUTIONARY PRODUCT THAT LETS YOU KEEP TRACK OF YOUR IPHONE OR IPAD AND OTHER THINGS OR PEOPLE YOU LOVE
It is human nature to be forgetful, to be distracted, to be careless. Especially in stressful situations. That's how we lose or forget things. Imagine leaving behind your iPhone. What a catastrophe! hipKey solves this problem. You'd be lost without it.
Hipkey is ultimately an advanced wireless proximity accessory that will establish a permanent low power connection to your iPhone or iPad. If you keep hipKey on you, it will always help you not to forget your iPhone or iPad. However hipKey comes with many other features. E.g. use hipKey to keep your running child in range or to protect your camera bag when your hipKey is placed inside it. Or what about monitoring a sleeping child or using hipKey as a door alarm with its motion sensor. The possibilities are endless.
NB: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

SHAME on APPLE store for carrying product
Was hoping the update would address this major lacking item to make this viable, but sadly, it did not. The reason I got this was to use the MOTION section to monitor desk drawer (purse inside) when stepping away. I assumed since advertised "also for monitoring sleeping baby" that I could step more than 10' away. However, when the phone is too far away, it "disconnects." SO DUMB! If I'm that close, why would I need to MONITOR, I could SEE that far away? WORSE, it alerts me on the phone AND the HipKey BEEPS nonstop until you RETURN, even though it was NEVER moved. Only the phone should alert in the very least. HORRIBLE WASTE OF $. Contacted company to inquire about refund with absolutely NO response. Don't waste your $! For $80 and approved in APPLE store, I expected a LOT more.
Good and bad
When it works it works, when it doesn't it doesn't. The problem is when it doesn't I need to sync both and need both the hipkey and phone. What if I couldn't find neither? Kind of defeats the purpose of having it. 2 stars is fair I think. I just wish this would always be connected via bluetooth unless I un-pair . Today I couldn't find my keys. Since the hipkey un-paired itself I couldn't use the app to find them. As I'm writing this I paired the device and now I see it unpaired itself again! Very annoying! When it's working its great. Doesn't always work though
What a joke
This was the biggest waste of money so far for 2014. The device is just about as helpful as an anchor to a person's drowning.
As a couple of the other people who have written reviews have stated, you need to be near feet away from the device and your phone otherwise the disconnect, so if you were that close to your phone and your keys at the same time, how can you ever lose them... Maybe this would be a great purchase for blind people!!!
I must have the word sucker written on my four head, i'm the moron who bought three at once..... Congratulations To Me...
