Pairing the eKEY Fob
The eKEY software for Windows Mobile does not need to go through a separate step to pair the eKEY fob to the
device. It pairs the eKEY fob automatically the first time it is used.
If Bluetooth is disabled on the Windows Mobile device, the device automatically turns on Bluetooth, uses Bluetooth to
perform the function, and turns the Bluetooth back off.

Using the eKEY Fob
Non-Infrared Windows Mobile devices require the use of an eKEY fob to translate the Bluetooth signal from your
Windows device to an infrared signal for the iBox.
To use the eKEY fob, begin the function on your Windows device (open the key container, open shackle, etc.). When
prompted, press the power button on the eKEY fob until the blue light comes on. When the green light flashes, aim
the eKEY fob at the iBox.
