Are you always losing your keys, briefcase, remote control, or man-purse (yeah, we’re all judging a little bit)? Well, you need a Tile Mate – Bluetooth Key Finder, so you can find those things quickly and easily.
This cool little gadget looks like an 1″ (2.5cm) square plastic tile but, it is actually a high-tech tracking device for your stuff. All you need to do is place it on your key ring, stick it in your man-purse, etc. and you can use an app on your smartphone to “ring” your lost item when you can’t find it.
Oh, you lost your phone? OK, no problem, just press the button on one of the tiles and it will make your phone ring, even if your ringer is on silent. Pretty cool huh?
The tiles use Bluetooth that only has a range of about 30′ (27m); so, if you’re in the tin-foil hat brigade, you don’t need to worry about someone tracking you via one of the tiles.
A 30′ range is plenty far enough to find your stuff around the house, yard, or office. However, the app offers a “last seen” feature that will tell you the last time your phone and the tracked item(s) was within 30′ of each other. That way, you can go back to that place and see if it’s still there.
So, if you are one that would lose your head if it wasn’t attached to your neck, get one (or several) of these Tile Mate Bluetooth Key Finders and keep track of your stuff.
Oh, while you could use one to keep track of your car after a guys night out, you might want to look at the ZUS Car Charger with built in Car Finder. Or, you know, you could lay off the tequila shooters.
