An app that can really open doors. KeyMe.

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, January 6, 2015

An app that can really open doors.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Ever get locked out of your home or car and have to shell out for a locksmith?   A company called KeyMe will let you store a digital copy of your keys in the cloud…that can then be accessed at kiosks when you need a key.    Or by mail if you don’t need it on the spot.  CEO Greg Marsh says the free app is available in the iTunes store….

“And we actually let you scan your physical key from your phone.  And once you’ve done that, if you ever get locked out, you can walk up to these retail kiosks that we have, they’re in major retailers that we have like 7-11 and Rite Aid and log into your account and actually just print a spare key on the spot in about thirty seconds.  So instead of paying a guy a couple hundred bucks to drill your lock, you can get a spare key for a few dollars in thirty seconds.  It’s a very convenient way for you to get a spare key.”

There’s more info about the locations and app at key.me.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
