Tom's Guide

A soft alarm and lack of features holds this device back

from Tom's Guide

A replaceable CR2032 battery powers the Smart Key, with Elgato promising six months of battery life. To change the battery, you'll need to pry open the Smart Key using either a very small flathead screwdriver or a small piece of metal that ships with the device. It's easy enough to do, provided you have the right tools. However, a soft alarm and lack of features holds this device back.

Small and easily attaches to any keyring

from TechnologyTell

For the piece of mind that comes from knowing where things are and to have a system that will monitor and alert you, it makes sense to pick up the Smart Key from Elgato.

Provides simple and efficient means for keeping track of one’s personal property

from Gadget Review

The Smart Key’s up to 160 foot range provides simple and efficient means for keeping track of one’s phone or personal property. The $39.95 retail is more than reasonable for the technology and control over same being provided.

It provides a range of useful functions and performs them perfectly well

from Macworld

We like the Elgato Smart Key dongle. It provides a range of useful functions and performs them perfectly well. And by using a replacement lithium battery it solves a couple of the problems rival devices seem to suffer. It’s still a little pricy, at £39, but if you find yourself losing keys on a regular basis you will find it worth the expense.

Affordable and reliable means of tracking misplaced belongings

from The Next Web

The Elgato Smart Key works exactly as described, and is a great piece of kit. It could be improved though – for example, the audio on the fob isn’t particularly loud. You could easily miss it if you lose a tagged object in a noisy environment. Also, it’s a fairly generic design – which will be fine for most people, but it won’t win any prizes for its looks.

That all said, the Elgato Smart Key is money well-spent, and if you’re looking for an affordable and reliable means of tracking misplaced belongings, it will serve you well.
