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.

Poor app backed up by zero support
I liked the idea of this product, liked the look of it too. But the app just doesn't cut it as far as reliability and features are concerned and as others have pointed out, support is completely non-existent.
I discovered that the vibrator on my Hipkey only works on the 'child mode' setting, and not on the alarm mode or motion mode, even changing the vibrate settings do nothing other than giving the impression vibrate is on by showing it on the app. Contacted support to check if I had a faulty Hipkey but not even the courtesy of a reply. Glad I didn't pay full price for it as it's a flawed product that has been over hyped!
Has a potential.
But after testing the email alert features and receiving one email every five minutes you can't disable it.
Despite turning off email alerts they keep on coming. Deleting the email address does not stop it. Changing email address does not stop it, it just keeps on sending emails every five minutes to the original email address.
Unfortunately, this is compounded by the complete lack of response from the Support web site and to messages on twitter. No one is at home, not even a note saying we are busy and will get back to you... Nothing.
On the basis of bugs and no attempt to remedy, I would not recommend.
Would have been great but.....
New release has improved the connectivity issues but still no fix for intermittent safe zone operation.
I would love it to have worked but bottom line is still waaaay too many false alerts, which means you spend all your time fiddling with it.
