Th LumNkey is a Smart Light Up Key. What makes it “smart” is the fact that it detects a specific WiFi point and automatically lights up when it’s in range.
This means that you can have your house key automatically light up when you walk up to the door simply by setting it to recognize your home WiFi point.
Doing so has some definite advantages. First, it means that you won’t stand there for a while digging through your backpack or purse to find your keys. It also means that, after finding your keys, you won’t have to stand there trying each one until you get the right one. Lastly, it also means that there will be plenty of light so you can find the keyhole on the first try.
You know, as opposed to scratching up the paint on the door trying to find it in the dark.
To get it all set up, all that’s required is for the LumNkey device to be paired with your phone. After both devices are paired, just download our LumNkey App on your mobile store and connect the profile to the your chosen WiFi and you are ready to go!
You can have several keys; one for home, one for the office, etc. They can all be programmed to light up in different colors. How cool is that?
At the moment, they’re still on Kickstarter and haven’t yet reached the funding goal but, there’s over a month to go. Assuming it gets funded, the units will start shipping in December. Also, for the first run, they only work with Kwikset KW1 locks. However, later versions should support other lock types.
If this sounds like something you’d want, head on over to Kickstarter now for the early-bird special and save $2 per LumNkey.
