Part I: Problem Statement, Competitor Analysis and Objective Statement
Human beings tend to forget things. It is a widely common phenomenon that people misplace their keys most of the time and waste a lot of time trying to find and locate them. They even wish that they could at least call their keys so that they can make sound and find the place where it may be hidden.
Bringing this product to the market, the company faces competition from Hone and Hipkey. Both of these are smart key-chains which prevent someone from loosing and misplacing their keys by sounding an alarm on a special circumstance.
Hipkey is a device which is connected to keys as a keychain and an iphone via Bluetooth. Both hipkey and the iphone sound an alarm whenever they are separated at a particular distance. The hipkey is synchronised to a special app in the iphone.
Hone is a Bluetooth enabled smart keychain made in the U.S.A that helps find keys attached to it by using iphone 4s. The hone is synchronised to a special app in the iphone.
