Meet SureKey. It’s the world’s first add-on for your keys that gives you peace of mind that your house is safe.
“Did I lock the door?” 30% people wonder after they leave home. This is a known short-term memory problem resulting from the automation of everyday activities. You can go back and check your lock or save your time and increase your confidence with SureKey.
We all love SureKey !
To recap – SmartLocks make life easier, but they cost more to buy, have inherent security risks, and you still need a physical key and have to replace the battery often. SureKey doesn’t send your lock status anywhere, so you don’t need to worry that a hacker could track you to rob your home.
Thanks to the advanced MEMS (microelectromechanical system) sensor, SureKey tracks every movement of your key, no matter how small, in 3D by accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer. Once you put in your key in the lock, the MEMS sensor wakes up the processor to analyze movement. No random motion can precisely repeat a key rotation in a lock, so there is no risk of an incorrect status.
When you want to check the current status, you just need to look at the device. The MEMS sends a notification to the processor that the position was changed to horizontal relating to the ground or was quickly rotated, indicated locked or unlocked.
During our last holiday, we had to leave at 3 a.m. to catch our flight. While waiting at the airport, went ran through our checklist. “Did I definitely lock the door?” Uh oh. I couldn’t call a friend because it was 5 a.m.
(Robert) I started researching potential lock solutions and was surprised and disappointed to discover how easy it is to hack SmartLocks. (I think advanced systems are easier to hack.) I believe in the KISS rule - Keep It Simple, Stupid.
That helped me determine the ideal solution. We began the fun part of building a small, intelligent piece of technology to solve the global problem of automation of daily activities, and SureKey was born.
