Our new Z-Keys programmable keypad is so simple to install and easy to use that you'll be up and running in minutes. Just unplug your keyboard, plug in the Z-Keys keypad, then plug your keyboard into the Z-Keys keyboard connector and you're done. It's that easy and there's no software to install or cause problems.

With our unique pass through design, you can even daisy chain multiple Z-Keys together to get more programmable keys further increasing productivity. And programming is easy and intuitive. Just press the key you wish to program. Type your command or macro on your keyboard as usual and you're done.

Since there's no software to install, Z-Keys works with any application without hassles or conflicts. Need a quick macro for Word or Excel? No problem. Want to change the program for that key for AutoCAD? It's easy and it's as fast as typing the desired command macro one time.

If 20 keys isn't enough, check out our Z-Keys Pro, 58 key model.
