KeyWe Pre-Launches Its Smart Door Lock with Over Half a Million Dollar Funding Success on Kickstarter


San Francisco, CA, July 26, 2018 --( After its first introduction at CES 2018 early this year, smart lock company KeyWe Inc. pre-launched its deadbolt model on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The campaign was fully funded in only three hours and raised nearly $600,000 in 40 days.

Smart door locks are considered an easy entry product to building a smart home making keys a story of the past. With new home automation devices and hubs being introduced everyday, the KeyWe smart lock offers a high level of flexibility with its multiple ways of connecting and makes access control simple with the easy-to-use app. In addition to its smart features, the strong security aspect and the sleek design of the hardware seem to have convinced the users on Kickstarter.

During its Kickstarter campaign, the KeyWe team put a special emphasis on clear and constant communication with its backers. Answering all of over 600 comments, the company actively lead the discussions with its supporters and even incorporated their opinions in three of the six Stretch Goals. These Stretch Goals include safety features, e.g. higher encryption and stronger cylinder for the hardware.

"We knew that we had a strong product that's ready for the U.S. market but we didn't expect the feedback to be this good," says Damian Kim, CEO of KeyWe Inc. "Since our product intro at the CES 2018, we've been receiving a lot of inquiries. But we wanted to make sure that our product and customer care can live up to the expectations. We are thrilled that we received such amazing confirmation through our backers and can't wait to offer KeyWe to even more customers in the future."
