About the Project

We are LumNkey. We want to create a new generation of smart- technology that is affordable for everyone in the form of our futuristic key design. Our innovative design could help to improve your way of life on a daily basis. Our inspiration is born out of a simple frustration: not being able to find your keys in the dark. We now want to take our solution to the next level, and provide an easy-to-use device that is available to everyone. This is the smart key of the future.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Forbes // Entrepreneur // The Huffington Post // BuzzFeed // Everyday Carry // PR Buzz // Engadget // Medium // Gadget Flow // Mashable

  • Reality:

    At the time of the review, the community on BuzzFeed had posted something about Lumnkey, Medium has a write up, and Gadget Flow has posted LumnKey as well. For the majority of the other 8 sites, nothing was found about Lumnkey. The write up in Medium is focused on the previous product campaign that included a smart lock as well.

  • Claim:

    Our innovative design could help to improve your way of life on a daily basis

  • Reality:

    Improving a backers life by creating a light up key, is a bold statement.

Something To Think About

When was the last time you could not find your keys in the dark?

  • Claim:

    With LumNkey and all it provides, you are buying safety, security and peace of mind for returning home in the dark.

  • Reality:

    Again, providing safety, security, and peace of mind for returning home in the dark, is a bold claim that can raise some question.

Bottom Line

LumNKey is an idea that can be possible with the technology readily available. However, there was a previous campaign that launched earlier 2017 that used LumNKey as a product that linked to a smart lock. That campaign was cancelled and all information was removed. Please see the link at the end of this paragraph for the previous campaign. This campaign also starts off by listing a group of respectable websites that with digging, most did not populate anything referring to LumNKey, and those that did were referring to the previous campaign. There are many questions that should be considered when thinking about backing this campaign.
