The following is a press release issued Dec. 3, 2012 to the NNRMLS by Supra:
Supra is pleased to announce the upcoming release of eKEY Fob 3. Compatible with iPhones (including the iPhone 5) as well as Blackberry and Android devices, eKEY Fob 3 converts a Bluetooth® signal generated from a real estate agent’s smart phone into an infrared signal that can be received by the Supra standard iBox™. Additionally, Fob 3 is also compatible with a growing variety of tablets, including Android and iPad. Association/MLS organizations may now pre-order eKEY Fob 3 in limited quantities. The new fob replaces its predecessor (Fob II), eliminating any need to stock both the Fob II and the eKEY Fob 3. Supra will continue to ship the iPhone Adapter for eKEY, for agents who prefer to use Apple’s 30 pin connector. eKEY Fob 3 will be made available to Associations and MLSs in limited quantities beginning December 2012, with general availability in January 2013. Associations may place advance orders, with first orders shipping on or before December 28, 2012. Real estate agents who use the SupraWEB information system may place orders through SupraWEB in January, 2013. In January 2013, there will be an original fob, fob II, and adapter trade-in opportunity if your Association/MLS organization elects to offer one to your members. Watch for more information upon the release of Fob 3. Bluetooth® is a registered trademark of the Bluetooth SIG.
