Mooresville, N.C. – Lowe’s Companies Inc. may have found the key to customer self-service. The DIY giant is rolling out new retail kiosks from KeyMe at select locations.
The kiosks enable customers to safely store a “digital copy” of their keys in the cloud and create a spare copy at their local Lowe’s in under 30 seconds. The new kiosks will be able to copy car keys, both with transponder chips and those without. This is the first time car keys have ever been able to be copied at a self-service kiosk.
In addition to cars, KeyMe can support most home, office and mailbox keys. KeyMe's advanced digital imaging technology resets keys to the factory specifications, resulting in a new key that's as accurate as the original from the manufacturer.
Kiosks integrated with the free KeyMe mobile app, thus keys can be saved via the app, then accessed and printed at a kiosk. To access a digitally-saved key at a kiosk, it takes a fingerprint scan to verify identity, at which point any saved key can be printed in under 30 seconds. These saved keys can also be shared via email at both the kiosk and through the mobile app.
Additional kiosk features include a completely redesigned user interface and more personalization options such as key skins featuring branded logos and characters and new custom designs.
