How to use ideniKey

 

  1. Lay out your key vertically, so that the head of the key is at the top.
  2. Open app and select “find a key.”
  3. Select take photo.
  4. From here you will have two options to add a photo:
    1.  Using your camera
    2. Uploading an image from your gallery

Tip: For best results, hold your phone approximately 1 foot away from the key. Pinch to zoom in until the key fills at least half of the photo. Tap the key to get your camera to focus, and then take the picture.

Important: Make sure the photo is vertical with the head of the key at the top. If your photos are rotating, try holding your camera vertically when you open the camera, and then follow the above steps.

If the photo is in the incorrect orientation, the key won’t be able to be identified correctly.
Try to eliminate harsh shadows before taking the photo.

If keeping the key on the keyring:

  • Make sure to only capture the head of the desired key. Arrange the key ring and take the photo as such to eliminate the other keys. Make sure to square the camera with the key, so that the angles match, and the key appears as parallel to the camera as possible.
  • Flip the key over and take a picture of that side following the above guidelines.

 

IdeniKey will always show the top 5 closest matches to your key, starting first with the closest match and showing 4 more close matches afterwards. If your key is in our database, it’s incredibly likely that the key you’re looking for is in the results shown.

If your key is not shown in these 5 results, try searching for the key again using new pictures following the guidelines mentioned earlier.

If your key is still not showing up, it is likely that we do not have your key in our database yet. Please help us grow our database to help future #Lockbosses find the keys they’re looking for. On the results page, select the “Your key’s not in the results?” button and fill out the text box with as much information on the key that you can provide. We use this feedback to add new keys to the database to help others find the keys they’re looking for.
