What is Milwaukee ONE-KEY?





ONE-KEY™ is an innovative new technology created by Milwaukee. It is a digital platform integrated on to all Milwaukee power tools and equipment. The tool management system works directly from the power tools themselves, meaning that you can control all of your Milwaukee tools simply by connecting them to the ONE-KEY online app. ONE-KEY provides total control, and access to all important information to make your job easier. In the same time it is simplified and easy to use. Milwaukee one key smart tools allow you to customise each individual tool, for faster more efficient work.


Tool Control

Tool Control allows you to completely configure your tools around the work you do. Using one key technology you can wirelessly sync your drills and impact drivers to program custom speed and torque settings directly into the tool’s memory. Advanced electronics inside the tool monitor its output, offering unmatched control and consistency with every trigger pull.

Because the changes to a One-Key power tool’s settings or modes are done on the app and then uploaded to the tool your phone doesn’t need to be in constant connection with the tool. No longer must you personally over see every tool whilst in use, simply check the settings via the app.




Tool Tracking

Built in tool tracking capabilities allows you to have full visibility of tool applications across your network of job sites and users. The ONE-KEY app will routinely keep a record of when the tool was last within 100ft any device with the one key application, allowing you to pinpoint missing tools quicker and increase the accountability of your gangs.



Tool Security

In partnership with with tracking, the integrated tool security feature provides you with fantastic theft protection. One-key allows you to protect your investment with features like tool lock-out, or hide tool from the nearby devices screen so only you can see your tool is in range (ideal if tools are left unattended over night). If your tool is lost, stolen or misplaced, you can render it useless by sending a remote command to the tool to shut itself off the next time it comes within range of any device using the one key app.



Inventory Management

Tool Reports

Milwaukee one key tool reporting provides you with real time information. Designed in collaboration with the M18 Force Logic 6T utility crimpers, with one touch you are able to wirelessly sync to the crimper to transfer and store crimp data to the cloud. You can then use this data to group all crimpers across a job into a single-time based report, keeping essential information at your fingertips. The software can create custom reports that tell you exactly what you need to know and spot potential issues or problems before you leave the job site. 



How does Milwaukee Tick work?

If you have additional tools and equipment such as tool chests, ladders and air compressors that don't have the Milwaukee one-key system built into them, then there is a solution to allow you to track all your tools on one simple system. The Milwaukee TICK™ Bluetooth tracker is fully compatible with one-key system. Using the one-key network, the TICK will provide the same location updates as all your tools with the built in one-key system. Perfect for inventory control and seeing where tools/equipment were last located, the TICK is incredibly useful for people with large or multiple work sites.


The TICK runs off of Bluetooth and will update when it comes into Bluetooth signal range of around 100 ft of a device with the One-Key app installed. The TICK™ is powered by a coin cell battery that provides over 1 year of run time. The app will provide low battery alerts when the coin cell needs to be replaced.


The Tick is neat technology and very useful if used in the right way.The One-Key app is especially useful the more people around the work site that have the app on their phones. With multiple attachment options and a low profile design - you can use glue, screws, rivets or cable ties to connect the device to your equipment. The TICK boasts weather, water and dust proof ratings, ensuring that it will survive the toughest of environments. At SGS we have Milwaukee TICK available as single or in packs of 4, 10 or 50.
