OmniFob - universal IoT remote fob, powered By Chipolo
We are proud to announce that we partnered up with Keyport, a company that is transforming personal access by creating a suite of fully customizable everyday carry solutions that consolidate keys, pocket tools, and smart tech. Keyport is introducing OmniFob, a universal IoT remote fob that controls smart home and connected car applications and that includes a built-in Bluetooth locator powered by Chipolo.
OmniFob provides quick access to a range of frequently used smart home functions - on/off, open/close, lock/unlock, arm/disarm. Keyport has focused our initial efforts on those particular smart home IoT devices which meet that criteria and they fall into 5 categories:
- Garage Doors
- Smart Locks
- Home Security (i.e. Home Alarm)
- Smart Lights
- Smart Outlets & Plugs
OmniFob supports scenes so you can control multiple devices with one button press.
In addition to smart home applications, OmniFob integrates remote start and keyless entry for compatible connected vehicles. While our initial partnerships require the purchase and installation of an aftermarket Bluetooth system, the benefits are significant.
Turn your old car or new car into a connected car in which certain functions like remote start, lock/unlock, etc. can be controlled by your phone and OmniFob
Control multiple vehicles with a single OmniFob (so long as a compatible aftermarket system is installed in each vehicle)
Bluetooth Locator Powered by Chipolo
Omnifob has a premium built-in Bluetooth locator, powered by Chipolo technology. The locator helps you track down your OmniFob from your phone or help you find your phone from your OmniFob. You can use the Chipolo app to locate your OmniFob, and it includes voice control with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri.
Security is paramount for OmniFob. In addition to the latest firmware and software measures, OmniFob is designed to be
a wingman for your smartphone so it will not work if out of range of your phone and the Keyport app to which it is paired. So a potential thief would literally have to get a hold of it and use it within approximately 60 feet of you. But we have a simple solution for that, too. You can simply remove the lost device through the app, and all of your paired connections will be inoperable.
But lost doesn't mean forever with OmniFob. You will still be able to track it down on Chipolo's app using its crowd mesh network which will show your OmniFob's last known location.
In addition to attaching it to a traditional keychain or carrying it independently, OmniFob is compatible with a range of Keyport's modular devices - the Slide 3.0, the Pivot, and the Anywhere Pocket Clip.
Keyport is excited to launch a Kickstarter campaign for OmniFob. You can sign up on their VIP interest list to get priority access to Super Early Bird discounts and to keep updated on their progress.
