IMPORTANT - Using Everykey on a Windows Computer?

Posted by Everykey Inc. (Creator)

Hello Backers,

The third pre-production run was a huge success and now we’re gearing up for full manufacturing which will take place on December 14th - more on this will come in a separate update.

As we get closer to shipping, we want to make sure that our backers who will be using Everykey with Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 are aware that they must use our specific Bluetooth Low Energy Dongle (BLE Dongle) to ensure compatibility. If you are using a Bluetooth Low Energy compatible system with Windows 10, you will not need the BLE Dongle because Windows 10 supports this feature by default.

We have qualified and selected the officially supported dongle that will work with Everykey for Windows. It’s been specifically selected for its performance, reliability, and security features. If you plan to use Everykey on a Windows system, please order your BLE Dongle below.

To purchase your BLE Dongle please follow this link:

      @Wesley van Kuijen - You can email support@everykey.com with the email you used to place the order of the dongle and your order number or send your email address and order number to us here on Kickstarter as a private message and we will process a refund.

      @Richard - Thanks Richard, we ordered a new SSL certificate a few days ago and it's taking longer than expected to issue. We've temporarily disabled order processing to insure a secure ordering process.

      He guys,

      Your website ssl cert seems to be expired. Just friendly reminder.

      @Wesley van Kuijen @Ebrahim Al-Bishri @Jim - If you are using Windows 10, you can use any BLE dongle that works with Windows 10. Or, if your computer already has BLE compatibility, you won't need a dongle at all.

      If you are using Windows 7 or 8, you will need to get an Everykey BLE Dongle because Windows 7 and 8 don't support BLE out of the box so we have designed the app around a specific dongle.

      @Robert Titchmarsh - If you buy one of our BLE Dongles before your Everykey ships, it will ship with your Everykey. If you're using Windows 10, you could use a different dongle than the one we supply, but if you are using Windows 7 or 8, you will need an Everykey BLE Dongle.

      It needs to be the Bluetooth 4.0 version. You can get them on eBay or Amazon. If you want to take a chance on a cheap one, you can get one for $3.00 shipped from China. Where the other you bought was made. Go figure!

      Here is one eBay http://pages.ebay.com/link/…

      This is not what we all signed on for....it was just a wrist band very portable......we paid our money and now that the project is way over due you want more money from us.....something isn't right. I think the least you could do is send them out at no charge......I am not really prepared to buy 2 of these things

      For UK (non US) customers, can you please give us the specs so we can source locally?

      Hi, A dongle was not part of the deal...!

    13. Kyle Appel on

      So here's a problem I see and I worry other may have at the moment around the Dongle. .. some if not most of us may have Windows 10 by now ... but and it's a big but because I've talked to alot of people and they tell me the same thing... windows 10 isn't fully finished yet and if it happens to screw up and we have to reboot back to Windows 8 or 7 whatever we had until windows 10 comes out .. what are we suppose to do..? Honestly I don't wanna spend extra money for this Dongle when you said it would we fine for windows 8 and now we're sorta just SOL unless we buy your dongle

      @Mems Ruano Villanueva - Apple products that support Bluetooth Low Energy will work with Everykey, no BLE Dongle necessary.

    15. Mems Ruano Villanueva on

      What about Apple products? Thanks.

      @Ci'ara Ray @Kenneth LeFebvre - Thanks for catching that, we've modified the update. To clarify, you do NOT need the BLE Dongle for Windows 10.

    17. Kenneth LeFebvre on

      Is there a reason you didn't mention Windows 10?

    18. Ci'ara Ray on

      So for Windows 10, do we also need this dongle?

      Thanks! :)
