UniKey – the revolution of the key

UniKey gets rid of your key chain and uses your phone instead.

If you’re in range of your door you can lock and unlock it, once your smart phone is out of range, it can only be locked. What’s really great about this system is that you can send keys on a one time, extended or permanent basis to others. So if a friend is coming to town and is at your home before you, they can just receive a one time key and enter your home. Or if you have a maid service that always arrives on a specific day at a specific time, their key will only be valid during this time range.

UniKey offers an app that let’s you operate your lock remotely if you forgot to lock your door. Keys can be set and deleted from a web app and if you ever forget your phone there is also a traditional UniKey fob that acts range-based the same way as your phone does.
