It sounds like you are logging keyboard strokes as a way to update the auto-complete of your search box, so you may want to instead do it through a different element like the input box itself and use something like onChange which I think will react to the input in the search box, but not be affected by using the up and down arrow keys.

Alternatively you can also check out Algolia, as they provide a great managed search service, which does everything you are looking for.
