Installation & Basics
How will the flinkey box be installed?
- Open the portal via the link sent by us (mail folder, check spam if necessary) and log in.
- Create a car and assign it to a user (if you want to use the car yourself, put yourself up as a user)
- Now assign the box to the car.
- Download the flinkey app from the store and log in with the same access data as for the portal
- Turn the box on (Turn On), place it in the car (the battery lasts 21 days when fully charged) and connect it to the 12V plug, if necessary (cable is included in the package)
- Now, the car appears in the app, as well as an open and close icon. Touch the desired icon.
- Done. From now on the car is in the digital world - with flinkey.
The installation is very easy and takes less than five minutes. The flinkey box is already in your user account of the WITTE Digital portal.
First, you log in to the portal with your personal access data (if you are the contract owner/buyer, you have received access data from us under the same e-mail address). Add a car by switching to the section "cars" and set up the car via "add". Here you can upload a picture and enter some vehicle data. After saving, click on the three grey shaded points above, select "manage products" and then assign the box in the installation menu by clicking on "assign" (assigned products appear below under "assignments").
After saving, click on the three grey shaded points above, select "manage products" and then assign the box in the installation menu by clicking on "assign" (assigned products appear below under "assignments").
The only thing missing is the assignment of users. You as buyer, are usually already created as a user, so jump to the auto section. There you will see a green dot next to the flinkey box or dongle on the far right of your car picture (your product has been successfully assigned). Click on the three action points on the left of the vehicle picture and select "details" in the drop-down menu. Click on "assign user" and select the period you think is right - one day, one week or unlimited. Use the "Invite" button to invite other people to have access to the selected vehicle. You can assign roles at the bottom of the page. Note: If you would like to invite additional people via the app, check the box at the bottom left of your assignment and click "enable/disable owner role" (a green dot will appear at the bottom right of your assignment for "is owner".
The installation is done!
Now turn on the box with the slider (Turn on). Then place the box with the car key inside, in the vehicle. For example, in the trunk or in the legroom of the passenger. We recommend to choose a place within reach of a 12 volt power plug. Otherwise, each box contains a built-in battery that allows you to use flinkey for 21 days on a full charge. You can stick the included tape to the bottom of the box to hook the box even more securely to the carpet. Make sure that the drawer of the box is easy to reach. Other than that - no further "assembly" necessary.
Now start the flinkey app and log in with your access data of the portal. Your car appears, as well as an open and a close icon. Tap on it, to lock or unlock the car digitally.
We wish you much fun with flinkey. Recommend us.

The pricing for flinkey depends strongly on your use case. Depending on the number of fleet sizes and whether you are comfortable with Box and Portal or whether you need our SDK and API, we will work with you to create an offer that fits your specific business needs.
How does the keyless opening and closing of a car work with flinkey?
flinkey combines digital and traditional locking technology. The physical car key is safely stored in the flinkey box in the vehicle. The box itself is locked as soon as the car is locked. If the car is open, you can also open the box if you need a key to start the engine. If not, this always remains safe in the flinkey box. The car is displayed in the flinkey app to all persons who have an access authorization from the owner. If you want to use it, you give the box a digital command to operate the key via an encrypted Bluetooth connection: If the vehicle is locked, it will be opened. If it is open, it will be locked.
How secure is flinkey?
Very secure. flinkey meets the highest standards in terms of data security and encryption technology. Opening and closing a car via smartphone is done offline and via an encrypted Bluetooth connection. Our tested procedure ensures reliable authentication on the box or car. Each individual flinkey box is secured with its own cryptographic key.
What about my car insurance if I use flinkey?
In principle, everything stays exactly as you know it. The vehicle owner himself takes care of all insurance for his vehicles and all drivers. If necessary, you should coordinate your plans briefly with your insurance company.
