Whoa, let’s blow the dust off this blog. Unfortunately, this little corner of mine on the interwebs has become slightly forgotten about. Well, not really. Just bumped down the priority list. Right now, Aisling has become my number one priority. I am currently balancing taking care of her (teething/going through a growth spurt), working, and all my other roles (wife, daughter, sister, aunt, me). Plus I am going back to the gym regularly. Add this and combine it with lack of sleep (Aisling doesn’t sleep through the night yet), I have serious mombie (mom+zombie) brain going on.
So when I was approached to review the Beets Blu Key Finder Wireless Pager Tag I was more then happy to do so. This little nifty device can help you keep track of your valuables (keys, wallets, suitcase, laptop bag, backpack – whatever is tagged with Pager Tag), detect the proximity of lost or forgotten items wirelessly, alert you when your item shifts outside of a connection range (about 15 feet/5 meters) and send sounds and enable an LED light to alert you.
Lately I have been misplacing my keys, so I have been using the pager tag to help me find them. My house keys and work keys are together and I switch bags a lot (regular work purse vs. diaper purse). The pager tag is very small and lightweight.
Set up was quite simple. All you have to do is put the battery in. There is a corresponding app (for both iOS and Android) that you can download for free. And then you just attach the pager tag to whatever you wish to not lose. When you try to locate the item, press the alarm button on the app, and the pager tag will make a sound alerting to its location. Easy peasy.
Other bonuses of the pager tag, is that it won’t drain the phone battery, using the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol and can be used as Android Trusted Device for automatic screen unlock. Most importantly, it saves you precious time and unneeded anxiety when looking for things. The Beets Blu Key Finder Wireless Pager Tag is also not very expensive – $24.95, so it is reasonable. I think it will make a great gift, especially during the holidays. I know a number of people who would benefit from the Beets Blu Key Finder Wireless Pager Tag.
