Introducing Smart Aerial Plus: The Affordable Alternative to the RW5

In the fascinating world of lock and key, new tools and technology are continuously making their debut. Recently, ILCO introduced the RW5 cloning tool, a device which simplified the key cloning process. But as with all technology, there's always room for alternatives, ones that could offer similar functionality at a reduced cost. Here, we bring you one such affordable alternative - the Smart Aerial Plus. This revolutionary device not only brings RW5 technology to your fingertips but also saves you some bucks. Intrigued? Let's delve deeper.

The Smart Aerial Plus:

At first glance, the Smart Aerial Plus might remind you of a slim 1990s cell phone, thanks to its compact design and antenna. However, don't be fooled by its simplistic appearance - this device is packed with advanced features that make it a compelling alternative to the RW5.

Functionality and Compatibility:

Primarily, the Smart Aerial Plus has been used alongside the Smart Pro for pre-coding keys. However, the recent upgrade allows it to function similarly to the RW5, but at a lower cost. With a registered Smart Aerial Plus, you can access the same features as the RW5 through your Smart Pro or directly from the Mykeys Pro app.

The Mykeys Pro App:

The Mykeys Pro app provides an interactive platform to operate the Smart Aerial Plus. Once you have registered your device, you can effortlessly clone keys, identify chips, and generate transponders. Whether it's an ID 46 chip or a Toyota key, the app provides seamless navigation and operation.

Key Cloning and Generation:

The cloning process is similar to using the RW5, where the tool communicates with the Silca Cloud. Besides cloning, the Smart Aerial Plus allows you to generate a chip. This feature comes handy, especially when you run out of a specific transponder key. Even though it might not be the most cost-effective method, having a few GTI Pro chips around could save you in a pinch.

Cost and Accessories:

The Smart Aerial Plus comes without a sniffer, so you might want to pick up the U-Snoop for complex cloning tasks. Even then, the Smart Aerial Plus provides a cost-effective solution, especially for those looking to use the Mikey's Pro app and save some money.

The Smart Aerial Plus is a noteworthy addition to any locksmith's arsenal. It not only offers a cost-effective solution for cloning keys but also provides compatibility with other devices like Smart Pro. Its feature-rich and easy-to-use design will surely be a boon for locksmiths around the globe.
