UNBOXED: Reviewing the iKeyp Pro Smart Safe
To be completely upfront with this review, I wanna start by saying I had incredibly low expectations for this product—not the type of feeling that I’d typically go into a review with. But by the time you read this, know that the iKeyp Pro smart safe pleasantly surprised me, though it did leave a few big questions on the table that certainly need to be addressed.
But let’s dive into it.
The iKeyp Pro is, simply put, a safe that’s been upgraded to take it well into the 21st Century. In a world where all things have to be “smart,” this product applies that moniker to an item that doesn’t necessarily need to be smartified. And that, in all honesty, was my biggest concern with iKey. Why take a safe—something that’s simple and has one purpose in life—and complicate it by adding more technology to it, an app, and batteries.There are some added complications when it comes to using iKeyp, which we’ll get into, but the makers did succeed, in the grand scheme of this product, in adding a smart element to the safe without totally missing the point of what a safe is intended for. iKeyp is smart in a way that’s enjoyable.
