I’m always misplacing my keys. I don’t lose them because I can’t remember where I put them. Typically, I lose track of them because someone else in the house piles stuff on top of them or moves them. That means I end up throwing stuff around and yelling a lot when it’s time to leave the house.
If you suffer from a similar problem, Scosche has a new product called foundIT that will help you keep up with your keys and anything else you can clip the small transmitter onto. Those transmitters are approximately the size of a remote for a vehicle keyless entry system. The little Bluetooth low energy transmitters work in conjunction with an application available for iOS devices including the iPhone and various iPad models.
The wireless transmitters have a 100-foot range and get power from a coin cell battery good for a year of constant use. You can also set the app up to give you both audible and vibration alerts if your tagged device gets out of range. That means if you set your keys down and start to walk off, your phone will vibrate or beep.
The foundIT system is available right now for $49.95(USD) and for that price you get two of the little wireless transmitters. The Scosche foundIT application is a free download on the iTunes App Store, and will work with up to six transmitters.
