Personal item management leaders TrackR have announced today that their newest device to hit the market. It is a Bluetooth long range item tracker which will help users to find and keep track of their possessions, using an app and a global network. It’s called TrackR Pixel and is smaller, lighter, louder and more versatile than some previous tracking devices on the market.
The idea is that technology should help us to keep track of where our personal possessions are, making life easier for those of us who have a lot on our minds or just to help when someone else in the house has tidied up and moved our items.
TrackR Pixel has a small and light design at only 5.6mm thin and 26.2 mm in diameter. It features a loud ringer, bright LED light to help locate items in dark conditions and comes in nine stylish colours including red, yellow, white, black, orange, green, blue, purple and pink. Most importantly, it has a longer range than TrackR bravo, the TrackR pixel’s predecessor. It is also being offered at a lower price point, making item tracking more affordable. The TrackR pixel uses a coin cell battery and the battery life can last for up to one year.
The TrackR pixel can be attached to an item that commonly gets lost such as a wallet, handbag, keys or a pet. The device is then paired with the TRackR app, which is free to download, and the app will loudly ring the lost item. The TrackR pixel will also light up making the item even easier to find. Users can also track an item on the in-app map.
Out of range items mean the TrackR Crowd Locate Network is activated. This network helps customers to find more than two million items all over the world every day. The owner receives anonymous updates of the last-known location of their missing item if another TrackR user is within range of it. 360,000,000 item updates are sent to the Crowd Locate Network each month.
There’s also a Family Sharing option which enables TrackR users to share items with family members so everyone can help find the missing item from multiple phones and TrackR accounts.
Integration with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices like Echo is easy and with the touch of a button on the TrackR pixel device, users can ring a misplaced phone, even when the phone is on silent mode.
TrackR pixel’s RRP is $24.99 and you can read more about it on the TrackR website. It can be purchased in eight-packs for $99.99.
