PASS...word?? This item is not reliable for commercial or enterprise use and a complete fail !
We tested this item in an enterprise environment to see if this was something we could deploy to clients. We tested the unit for 30 days about 10 times as day.
This item is not reliable for commercial or enterprise use. The device would lock throughout the day when sitting on my desk inches away from the usb dongle. I saw a lot of reviews that this device has a mind of its own and it does. These reviews are accurate. I would be in the middle of typing and all of a sudden my PC would go into lock mode. We played around with all of the settings and really tried to make this work but it kept failing. It works when you walk in to the room to unlock the PC but the Gatekeeper has a mind of its own. Typing in my password was easier and just as secure. This device really only comes into play if you are extremely lazy and cannot type a password.
Also a quick note the battery was dead in less then 18 days and replaced. It dies again in 22 days.

Great idea if it would work
I am not sure about this product yet. I thought it a great idea and it is so small and compact looks really good. I have followed the instructions to download the software - don't like downloading new software - and turned off my computer which is only 2 months old. When I turned it back on again it was very very slow. Not something I need when I use it for work. When I went to find the software it says I had to register which I did then it all disappeared and I could not get to the dashboard area. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing happened. Therefore I have uninstalled it again. Needless to say my computer is now running at full speed. I am not going to re-install this again until I read some more positive reviews - I received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased review.

One of the products for this purpose - the best I've seen so far.

A little tricky to get working at first, but once you figure out the range it performs exactly as advertised. Very clean software and good interface. Seems to suffer from interference from other devices at times and needs to be quite close to work well all the time (not in your pocket or jacket for instance), but your experience may be better depending on what is around your computer and work area.
