Quick Review Of Tile Tracker

The Tile Tracker is one of the more popular Bluetooth key trackers. There are many different companies selling them as they can be used for locating wallet, keys as well as various general items with the help of connected smartphone app. Tile is 1 of the biggest companies in this industry and over the years, they have launched a number of products. Tile has a number of advantages over competitors in the industry and there are several reasons why this brand is 1 of the most popular companies in this category.

The largest advantages are that they have a variety of models to suit different needs. Some of the models available can easily fit in a wallet and fit in tight spaces. For instance, you can fit it in a luggage tag and use it to track your luggage. Some of the latest launches they've made offer an expanded distance of up to 200 feet along with better dust resistance and waterproofing. Like all the competing trackers, they work through Bluetooth with the help of an application on your phone.

When you buy 1 and keep it somewhere, you will need to download the free application. This free app will tell your location of the device with the help of (BLE) technology. If you are in the vicinity, you can use it to signal to the device. It can be used in the reverse manner which means you can press the button on the finder and it will make your phone ring. So, you can range use it for finding it.

The advantages of these gadgets are that you can use these to find missing keys as well as common items. However, the biggest disadvantages are that (BLE) has a limited distance. Thankfully, the company has come up with an innovative approach with the assistance of its own network. The free app keeps working in the background on your phone as well as on the smartphones of other users. This creates a big network and if the tracker is not within the range of your smartphone, but it is within the range of other smartphones with the installed application, you will be able to find the location of it. As the network grows, the probability of finding your missing items even when it is not within the range of your own smartphone will keep increasing.

While it has a number of good things about it, it also has its challenges. 1 of the biggest causes of concern is that you cannot replace the battery. The company guarantees the battery life for a period of 1 year but after 1 year, you will need to buy another one and you will also get a small discount on your new purchase.

Overall, it is a useful product that has found some traction but it will hopefully find much wider traction which will likely mean bringing down of prices significantly and figure out a way to extend the battery life or give a significant discount on a replacement.
