Introducing ONE-KEY™, the first digital platform for tools and equipment. Combining a free-to-use inventory program with the industry’s smartest tools, ONE-KEY™ provides a new level of control and access to information that will revolutionize the way work gets done. Get started today to streamline your productivity.

Keep the important information right at your fingertips. Snap receipts, log purchase info, set up service reminders, and assign tools out to your employees.

Manage your equipment down to the project level. Pull reports on recent spend, run inventory audits, even see the cradle-to-grave story of any item in your inventory.

Keep a virtual eye on your things when you can’t. Any ONE-KEY™ app will automatically keep records of the last time it was within 100ft of your ONE-KEY™ compatible tools, allowing you to pinpoint missing items quickly.

Protect your ONE-KEY™ compatible tool by locking it out whenever it’s not in use. If your tool is lost or stolen, render it useless by sending a remote shut-down command to the tool for the next time it comes within range of any open ONE-KEY™ app.

Need to set some boundaries for the guys in the field? Set up your complementary guest login to share with your team, allowing you to set permissions on who can change what.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Helps me a great deal with managing and keeping aerial numbers on all my tools

Milwaukee is ahead of the game with this and as well on many other things. Love the idea of the tick, I bought one just to test it out. I think this technology has a long way to go but is a good start. The distance that can be tracked and the fact the app has to be running on other people’s phones in order to detect the stolen tool just isn’t ideal for most theft situations. Milwaukee does make very nice tools and they do take that little extra time in their engineering and quality that lesser brands do not. But you do pay for that difference. 12 volt tools I have and like the circular saw 12v struggles to have enough power to barely cut 2x4s, so I’d go with 18v if you want a cordless circular saw. Their 12v drill and impacts are good for small uses. Overall love their organizers with the gasket to keep moisture out and love most any Milwaukee products. Keep up the good work, love the app a lot a lot.

Good start

This is a good start for what I believe could be a much more powerful tool. One key can track tool and equipment locations and even lock ONE-KEY™ enabled devices (only 3 devices so far). The app needs more design enhancement. The current version has connect up at the top right (after you select which tool) and then touching the tool again edits it’s information. These options should be reversed. Touching the tool again will connect and show all relevant information while the top right small font should give you the option to edit the tools information since that will be the least often performed function. Also, ONE-KEY™ currently doesn’t interact with the Milwaukee m18 batteries. I should be able to track the location and disable the output of these batteries since they cost as much as the tools do. Finally, I have to connect manually to lock and unlock my tool each time. Since the app already knows usage information about the tool and pings it for location every so often, I should be able to set an option to automatically lock the tool after X minutes of inactivity. Alas, I have to reconnect and lock the tool every time. Finally, I really want the ONE-KEY™ tools when locked, to prevent the batteries from being removed from the tools. The batteries and the battery charger are no different than the tools that have no smart features.

Excellent idea, needs ONE major improvement

I’m an owner of a small remodeling company (3-4 employees). I use Milwaukee tools pretty much exclusively. I love the tools, I love the battery platform, they’re fantastic.

One Key is an amazing idea and it works the way it’s supposed to flawlessly. However, I only give it four stars because it could use one major improvement.

The location pinging only when someone with the one key app is in range is what kills me. It’s great if tools get left on a job. But what about if they’re stolen? If my tools got stolen it would set me back so, so far. If the Tick or the tools with one key came with a little battery inside them that pinged their location every six hours, or if you opened the app and could ping it on demand (similar to find my iPhone) that is a game changer. I would easily invest in a product that does this, because it would protect my assets. If, for example, a version of the tick came out that did this, I would happily spend $30 per tick (maybe even more) to know that I could always locate my tools.
