Anyone that has ever been locked out of their office, house, car, or apartment knows that calling a locksmith is costly and time consuming. Besides the seemingly endless waiting for the locksmith to arrive, it can easily cost hundreds of dollars to get a lock opened, fixed and/or replaced. According to HomeAdvisor, the average locksmith visit is over $150 but can easily top $250 depending on your location and needs. Now there is a new, high-tech way to avoid the cost and get your locks opened for a fraction of the price – KeyMe.
The KeyMe kiosks allow users to instantly make copies of their keys and enables consumers to securely store digital copies of their keys so that if they ever get locked out or lose their keys, they can make a spare key at the kiosk, saving the visit by an emergency locksmith. Customers can use KeyMe’s free iOS and Android apps to save their keys in the cloud, creating a seamless multi-platform experience.   Key storage is completely free and users can save and store as many keys as they like. 

Once a key is successfully scanned and stored, users can easily share they key with family or friends via SMS or email using the kiosk or mobile app. Customers simply access the key they wish to share on their “digital keychain” and tap the “share” button.

They will be prompted to submit the recipient’s email address or telephone number and KeyMe will send an email confirmation upon sharing a key and another email when the recipient has accepted the key.

KeyMe is the rapidly growing company that is revolutionizing the $7.5 billion locksmith industry and has announced a new, aggressive round of national expansion that will see the company’s key copy kiosks added to more than 50 locations per week, with plans to have over 2,000 in leading retailers by the end of 2017.  KeyMe kiosks can be found in retailers across the U.S., including: 7-Eleven, Albertsons, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kmart/Sears and Rite Aid.

Cities that will see a major increase in KeyMe kiosks include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and San Diego.  Many new cities will have access to KeyMe kiosks for the first time in 2017 including Atlanta, Houston, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Phoenix, Detroit, Seattle-Tacoma, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Denver, Cleveland-Akron (Canton), Pittsburgh and Portland.

While the keyme and other such copy services work fine for the smaller keys (usually home door keys) it simply won't work good on other more complex keys that needs locksmiths work. There are many pros and cons of using such key copy services.

If you have the time and you don’t have an emergency locksmith service like getting locked out of your home or car, then you could ask your friends and family for recommendations.
