KeyMeA New York startup called KeyMe is expanding an app-based service that has a chance to be hugely disruptive- to the locksmith business, at least.

KeyMe allows users to take a picture of their apartment or house key and, in the event of losing their keys, having a new one delivered. As of Wednesday, KeyMe is offering same-day delivery of keys in Manhattan, with other cities to come soon.

The service is available both for homes and businesses, and the delivery feature includes a one-hour option, costing $59 for one key. In addition, members can store a digital copy of their key at 7-Eleven locations through Manhattan.

The KeyMe app is available from App Store. 

After seeing such a positive response to our kiosk offering  in New York and our mobile app nationwide, we are upping the ante and offering our Manhattan neighbors a same-day key delivery service, which means no more hanging around on your stoop in the rain or paying through the nose just to get into your apartment  or office when you get locked out,” said Greg Marsh, CEO of KeyMe. “We’re kicking off in Manhattan, but this is a service that we will bring to cities across the country very shortly. KeyMe is all about easing the stress of dealing with your keys.
