The Everykey Wristband

Everykey removes the stress and hassle of losing keys and forgetting passwords, while providing even better security than what consumers currently have in place.

Today, Everykey has announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of its stylish wristband that replaces keys and passwords with one easy-to-use device. The Kickstarter campaign will run for one month, starting today and ending November 29, 2014.

Available in a multitude of fashion forward colors, Everykey is an innovative universal access device for everything that requires a physical key or password. The Everykey wristband is an attractive Bluetooth enabled band that allows immediate access to a user’s password-protected electronics such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer, as well as physically locked items including doors, car doors, bike locks, and other controlled access devices.

When the Everykey wristband is within range of a user's device, the wristband will allow the user to bypass that device's password or physically unlock it automatically, eliminating the need for complicated passwords and cumbersome keys.

Everykey also stores a password keychain, which can be used to seamlessly log the user into their online accounts when they’re close to one of their devices. When the wristband goes out of range, the device automatically re-enables security mechanisms so it is safe and secure when out of trusted hands.

“Everykey removes the stress and hassle of losing keys and forgetting passwords, while providing even better security than what consumers currently have in place,” says Christopher Wentz, CEO of Everykey. “Our product utilizes military grade encryption, allowing only you access to your personal property and accounts. Like a credit card, you can instantly disable your Everykey if it ever gets lost or stolen.”

The Kickstarter campaign will fund the first run of production. Current funding levels include:

$50 – One Everykey wristband in any available color ($50 off retail price),
$90 – Two Everykey wristbands in any available colors ($110 off retail price),
$160 – Four Everykey wristbands in any available colors ($240 off retail price),
$200 – One Everykey developer circuit board and early access to Everykey SDK,

About the Company

Everykey began as an innovative project for an entrepreneurship class at Case Western Reserve University in September, 2012. The class professor was so impressed with the concept that he invested his own money into the startup. This Cleveland, Ohio based LLC currently employs over 25 employees, contractors, and interns constantly working on products and business development.

Everykey’s future plans include the release of an SDK, which allows other access control technologies to seamlessly integrate with Everykey. This means the wristband could not only unlock, but also start a car, unlock house doors, turn on lights, and even replace credit cards.
