hipKey Proximity And Movement Alarm For iPhone And iPad
hipKey is a proximity and movement alarm sensor designed to notify you when the pre-defined connection between your iPad or iPhone and the gadget is broken. In plain English this means you pair the hipKey to your iPhone and place it in your bag; if someone tries to take the bag away, your iPhone will notify you right away. While protection against thieves is one of the most obvious uses, you can also use the hipKey to make sure you don’t leave home and forget your iPhone, or, if you clip it to your kid’s belt, you’ll be notified when he’s no longer near you or, using the included Find Me Mode locate your iPhone, iPad or keychain when you no longer find them.
