This is the OmniFob, quite literally a portmanteau of the words omni, meaning all or everything, and fob, the tiny remote-control that sits on your keychain. While most keyfobs are single purpose (e.g. car, garage door, apartment gate, etc.), OmniFob controls a broad range of smart devices – home, auto, personal security, and locator.
A slim, nondescript Chapstick-sized device with a horizontal screen and two buttons, OmniFob was built to control practically everything. With its relatively simple button interaction, you can start your car, open your garage door, unlock your door, switch on/off your lights, open your curtains, adjust the thermostat, control your music player, trigger the shutter on your phone’s camera, and even find your phone. It attaches easily to any keychain alongside your keys, as a master key for all your connected devices. OmniFob is practically a universal remote for your life, and aside from being able to pause, rewind or fast-forward time like the remote from the movie Click, OmniFob gives its users one-touch control over everything.
OmniFob’s ability to communicate with its ever-increasing roster of smart devices comes courtesy of integrations with smart-aggegators like Yonomi and Samsung’s SmartThings, making the fob compatible with a wide range of the most popular smart devices. OmniFob also works with Nexx Garage, the most popular smart garage door opener on Amazon, and also with cars, thanks to a collaboration with Mobikey, an aftermarket connected key-less entry and remote start system. It comes with a built-in Bluetooth locator powered by Chipolo and is compatible with Voice Assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google, so you can use your fob to find your phone or ask your phone to help find your OmniFob.
Working the OmniFob is quite literally as easy as pushing a button. The fob comes with two buttons, a primary backlit button right beside the screen, and a secondary button to navigate through functions. The screen helps you toggle through services, knowing which one you’re activating. Once you’ve found your service, click the primary button and OmniFob activates or deactivates it for you. You can even set presets on the fob, double or triple clicking for commonly-used shortcuts, or shaking the fob to trigger a particular service like the “Locate my smartphone” feature, or even broadcast an emergency SOS alert with your GPS location to a family member. OmniFob’s companion app for iOS and Android allows it to link to your services. You can, within the app, choose what actions you want to program into the fob, and what devices you want it to interact with. The fob charges via MicroUSB, and lasts up to 2 weeks on a full battery. Moreover, the OmniFob sits on your keychain with the rest of your keys and EDC, and even comes with a mini-flashlight, giving you yet one more thing that you can control with the push of a button!

OmniFob: World’s Smartest Key Fob – Control Your Everything
One FOB to Rule Them All: Open the garage, unlock the door, turn on the lights, start the car, find your keys, call for help, & more. Keyport is dedicated to creating the next generation multi-tool for the modern lifestyle.
OmniFob is a finger-sized key fob that transforms any standard keychain into a connected life remote providing quick and easy access to your favorite smart functions:
– without having to lug around multiple cumbersome remotes,
– without having to pull out your oversized smartphone, and
– without having to use both hands when you’re on the go or have your hands full.
Open your garage, unlock your door, turn on your lights, start your car, find your keys, call for help, and more all in one VERY smart fob that attaches easily to any conventional keychain and that is also compatible with Keyport’s modular Slide 3.0, Pivot, and Anywhere Tools.
Think of it as a mobile hot button for your smartphone… a single key fob that:
– controls your favorite smart home functions (garage door, home security, smart locks, smart lights, smart plugs, and more)
– replaces your auto remotes
– serves as your secret panic button
– has a built-in Bluetooth locator so that you never lose it
OmniFob is the World’s first all-in-one smart remote for home and auto with BLE locator powered by Chipolo.
Just click a button and control your everything.
Turn on the lights, open the garage, disarm the alarm, unlock the front door, and even do it all at once! A remote fob’s primary value is that it provides quick and easy access to certain functions – ON/OFF, OPEN/CLOSE, LOCK/UNLOCK, ARM/DISARM – you use every day. So, we have focused our efforts on those particular smart home IoT devices which meet that criteria, and they fall into five categories:
– Garage Doors
– Home Security
– Smart Locks
– Smart Lights
– Smart Outlets & Smart Plugs
Routine / Scene Support
Routines (as Yonomi calls them) or scenes (as Samsung SmartThings refers to them) allow a user to initiate multiple commands at once. For example, a Leave Home routine might include the following:
– Close the garage
– Lock the front door
– Arm the security system
– Turn off all smart lights
– Set the thermostat to an away temp
Once a routine is programmed in the Yonomi app or in the SmartThings app, OmniFob can initiate it with one simple click. The possibilities are virtually endless… Wake Up, Go To Sleep, Leave Home, Coming Home are just a few of the most common routines which you can personalize to suit your needs.
Programmable Quick Control
OmniFob (patent pending) is a tiny shortcut remote that triggers the apps you use to control your smart devices, scenes, routines, and even your cars. It’s like having multiple smart buttons in one tiny remote. Currently OmniFob can control over 100 devices and scenes. But since OmniFob only has two buttons, how fast is it to access all your devices if you have to scroll through the menu each time? The answer is… Quick Controls 🙂
With Quick Controls, you don’t have to look at your OmniFob to activate it. You can simply perform a double-click, long press, quad-click, or shake & click to trigger your most frequently functions.
– Quick Controls combined with a scene or routine allows you to trigger smart actions quickly without digging your phone out of your pocket or purse, unlocking it, selecting an app, opening it, and then selecting the function you wish to initiate.
– Quick Controls are completely customizable in the Keyport app so you can assign your most frequently used actions to the Quick Control option of your choice.
– Currently we are building five standard Quick Controls in addition to a panic trigger for personal security (more on that below).
Without question, auto lock/unlock is the most requested function, and we have heard you loud and clear! Over the past several years, we have researched, examined, outlined, prototyped, and tested dozens of options, and we are excited to introduce you to our first partners in the auto space.
While still early in the development, we are working with two of what we hope will be several aftermarket connected car applications to bring you remote start and lock/unlock solutions.
– Turn your old car or new car into a connected car with functions like remote start, lock/unlock, etc. that can be controlled by both OmniFob and your phone
– Control multiple vehicles with a single fob (so long as an OmniFob compatible* aftermarket system is installed in each vehicle)
Their first partner in this space is an exciting early stage company which is doing very cool things in the car sharing space. They have been testing their original system all over the World this past year and have recently launched the newest version of their smart auto start / keyless entry system called MoboKey.
How It Works
OmniFob pairs to both the Keyport app and the Chipolo app (for locator specific functionality) on your smartphone. Once set up, the commands you issue by selecting the function and then clicking the button on your OmniFob will be sent via Bluetooth to the requisite app which will then initiate your request. For example, to open your garage door, you select the Garage Door – Open/Close function with the Mode button on the side and then click the Select button which initiates the command. The Keyport app receives the command via Bluetooth, determines which function to call, and then initiates the action via API through the cloud.
Below: Devices That Are Compatible with OmniFob
Alongside smart home, connected car, and personal security, OmniFob has incorporated a built-in Bluetooth locator powered by Chipolo so you can find your OmniFob from your phone… or find your phone from your OmniFob.
Find OmniFob with Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant.
A tiny keychain flashlight is always a useful everyday carry item. To give you one that doesn’t take up any additional space, we added a mini-flashlight for shining a little light when you need it most.
Trying to take the perfect selfie is not exactly the suavest of moves. Now you can use OmniFob as a remote camera trigger so that you can do it without looking like a tourist.
A part of the Keyport modular everyday carry system, OmniFob is compatible with the Keyport’s Anywhere Pocket Clip™ (comes standard and can connect to virtually any keychain), the Keyport Pivot™, and the Keyport Slide™.
Can’t I Do All This On My Phone Already?
Yes although not together in a single app and not with easy one-handed access. The OmniFob is designed to be the ultimate shortcut to your smartphone’s apps by combining:
– the utility of a smart button,
– a more robust interface with an OLED screen which gives you access to a broader range of functions for home, auto, and personal security, and
– the convenience of a unique set of Quick Controls that make it faster and easier to initiate your favorite functions.
In addition, the team added a built-in Bluetooth Low Energy locator powered by Chipolo, selfie remote, and mini-flashlight to give you everything you need to control your… everything.
OmniFob does not connect directly to your devices. It simply connects to the Keyport app on your smartphone via Bluetooth and acts as a shortcut to your smart apps.
– No biometrics
– No direct device connections
– No private data stored on the device
– No history stored on the device
– No unencrypted transfer of data
In the Keyport App, you connect to a compatible 3rd party app via Oauth2 validation. There is no need to worry about security if you ever lose your OmniFob. It is designed to be a shortcut to your smart phone via Bluetooth. Therefore, OmniFob will not work if it is out of Bluetooth range of your phone and the Keyport app to which it is paired. Just unpair it in the Keyport app and all your devices will be inoperable even if the thief finds his way back into your Bluetooth bubble.
