We all have more than one key with us – the keys to the house, car keys, office locker keys, luggage keys (when traveling), etc. Some people might like the traditional key which holds about 9-10 keys or some might prefer different key rings for different keys. However, what if a smart product has been designed to ensure your keys are in one place and there is no clutter and chaos regarding keys?
That’s what Keysmart pro is designed for.
There’s a pretty solid argument to be made for integrating some kind of tracking technology onto your keyring. After all, a lost set of keys can create some pretty big headaches. Billed as the “world’s smartest key holder,” the KeySmart Pro embraces this line of thinking and adds a few extra bells and whistles.
- The KeySmart Pro is a compact key holder about the size of a Swiss Army Knife that significantly reduces the amount of space keys take up in your pockets.
- Instead of rattling and jingling in your pocket, the KeySmart Pro keeps them aligned, allowing you to “flip” the one you need open. It also comes with a key-sized bottle opener that has a loop on the other end for attaching thicker keys.
- The KeySmart Pro also has built-in Tile tracker to help you find your keys. The Tile has a battery life of six months, and will send your phone a notification when the KeySmart Pro is too far away.
- LED flashlight is a handy little addition.
- KeySmart Pro has USB charging point. The battery lasts few weeks.
- The KeySmart Pro is definitely an investment, but when you consider that a Tile costs $25 on its own, it’s easier to justify. After using it for myself, the KeySmart ‘s ability to clean up my pocket and keep an eye on my keys make it a tech accessory I didn’t know I needed, but am happy to have.
KeySmart Review – What is Key Organizer?
It is a smart device that enables you to keep your physical keys organized. It has been designed to cater to a person who carries a lot of keys and helps them store them in one place easily. The design of this device is just like the alphabet S and can easily hold around 8 keys or more. It also looks like the Swiss knives which are quite cool. It has many spacers which can be used to separate the keys there allowing you to hold about 14 keys.
The KeySmart Pro works in the same way. If the owner finds they’ve misplaced their keys, they can open up the Tile app and press the “Find” button, prompting the KeySmart Pro to sound an alarm or show its last known location on a map. Conversely, if the owner misplaces their phone, a double-press of the Tile logo will call their device, even if it happens to be on silent.
In our experience testing the KeySmart Pro over three weeks, it worked exactly as advertised. Its designers have done a good job of packing this functionality, along with a flashlight, into a pretty slender package. But this effectively turns your keyring into an electronic multitool, and for a lot of users this will verge on overkill.
About Keysmart Pro
Constantly annoyed with thigh poke, key jingle, and damaged pants, Mike set out to design a solution to the bulky key ring. After months of prototyping, testing, and redesigning, KeySmart was born.
The frame was crafted out of aluminum to be ultra lightweight, and the hardware was milled from stainless steel to survive anything life threw at it.
After launching on Kickstarter in early 2013, KeySmart was one of the most popular products ever launched. Mike quit his job to take KeySmart on full time and has been making happy customers ever since.

How Does Keysmart Pro Work?
To add keys, you unscrew two large flat-head screws (they’re big enough that you can screw and unscrew them using a coin) that hold the two parts of the KeySmart Pro together, and place their keyhole on top of one of two short studs.
Getting started with KeySmart is pretty easy. To start using the Tile functionality you download the free Tile app, create an account (if you don’t already have one), attach the KeySmart pro to your account, and you are ready. As far as getting your keys added, it takes a bit more effort. You use a screwdriver or even a coin to remove the 2 screw posts on the ends of the KeySmart and deatach the 2 halves, add your keys to each end in the order that you desire, put the KeySmart back together, and you are ready to go.
You can place up to five keys on top of each stud, and the KeySmart Pro comes with small spacers that allow you to compensate for different key sizes. I only have three main keys, so I placed them all on one side, and used the spacers to even out the other one.
KeySmart Pro with Tile in use
With the keysmart pro box, you’ll get a keychain, and a USB charging cable. Included is a bottle opener attachment that also provides an eyelet where you can attach your large key fob. You’ll also get a bunch of round separators that you can put between the keys inside the KeySmart pro.
You unscrew either end and remove the barrel bolt. KeySmart claim it will hold up to 10 keys, but the 6mm gap is really more for three regular shaped keys per side. There is an expansion pack as well – longer bolts!
The key ideally needs a circular centre or top hole, or you will have to drill one to make use of the fold-out process. The bottle opener (takes up two key spaces) has a small lanyard hole for a keyring – that is where you will attach irregular shaped car keys, security keys etc.
We are not sure if it is waterproof, but the covered micro-USB slot seems to indicate it is rainproof.
One advantage may be for arthritis sufferers – the KeySmart offers a larger handle space that a key.
Who is KeySmart best suited for?
There are many people who carry many keys every day like School teachers – they would have keys to unlock the office, cabinets, etc., in addition to car keys and house keys. Also, many other professionals could use this device like security guards, janitors, police personnel or anyone who usually has a lot of keys to carry around every day.
In case you own many vehicles or rental properties, the KeySmart pro device would be the perfect one for you as it enables you to carry about 10 keys. It is a good option for people who not like metal keys going through and ripping their clothes or bags. The outer shell of the device ensures the keys are in place and do not damage other materials.
