Every single morning starts like this:
Me: Have you seen my keys?
H: Nope, did you hang them up on the hook?
*frantically spends at least 5 mins searching for them before invariably finding them under a piece of paper on the dining room table.
I am absolutely terrible at losing my keys and ending up late for work so I was very excited to get the chance to try one of the new TrackR Pixels.
The TrackR Pixel is a coin sized Bluetooth device which you can attach to pretty much anything (keys, wallet, luggage etc).
You then download the TrackR app (available on Apple and Android devices) and use it to locate your belongings in seconds.
One press on the app and the TrackR Pixel lets off a short series of beeps and lights up which is very useful if your keys are at the bottom of your bag!
In addition, you can also use the TrackR Pixel to locate your phone – even if it is on silent. Simply press the button on the TrackR and your phone rings making it easy to locate.
I have to say that the TrackR came in very useful while camping last week as our tent has lots of different pockets to put things in and, as usual, I misplaced my keys on numerous occasions.
There is also a Crowd Locate function within the app. If your item goes missing, the TrackR app records its last known location on a map. When another TrackR app user comes within Bluetooth range of your lost item, its location will be automatically updated in your app. Pretty handy if you drop your keys on the beach or at a festival.
The TrackR is incredibly simple to use and is ready straight out of the packaging. With TrackR’s battery replenishment Programme, you get an alert when your battery is running low, press a button and a new one is ordered for you so you will never run out of power – you just have to pay for delivery.
I have really enjoyed using the TrackR Pixel and would highly recommend it.
The TrackR Pixel is available from Amazon (among other retailers) priced around £25.
