So I’ve got a slight issue (okay I have a few but we’re only going to talk about one of them here) and that is my knack for setting things down and forgetting where I put them.
What if I told you there was a way to keep up with your stuff – from skis to hot sauce to stuffed pandas and everything in between – with one simple device. Too good to be true? Nope. All you have to do is Tile it and your items will never be lost again.
The Tile is a Bluetooth enabled device that enables you to use your phone to locate your most beloved items that you don’t want to ever lose. BONUS: You can easily keep track of it with the free accompanying app!
This is perfect for me since I am always out in the greenhouse or garden (or downstairs or upstairs) with my camera taking pictures of plants for my succulent tutorials.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve set down my camera only to go to use it again and not be able to find it (a lot of times it’s right in front of me but we won’t go there). With the Tile tracking device and accompanying app, I no longer have to worry where I last laid my stuff!
As you can see, Tile is small and you can hook, stick, or slide it onto just about anything that you don’t want to lose! Pairing with the app is also super easy. Simply download the app, follow the on screen directions and two steps later, you’re ready to go! When you want to find your lost item, open the app and tap “find”. The Tile will ring a melody so that you can easily locate what you originally lost!
Of course you can use the Tile to keep track of your keys, phone, and wallet but there are so many more! Some of my favorite items to use with it are:
- Eye Glasses
- Vic’s ID Badge
- Luggage when traveling
- Remote Control
If you keep your Tile app running in the background on your phone, it will remember the last place and time you had your item. This is perfect for me since I sometimes take my camera to restaurants IN OTHER CITIES!
Tile: Together We Find
So what if you’re not within Bluetooth range of your Tile? What then? Well, it’s easy!
As of this writing there are over 10 MILLION downloads!
My absolute favorite feature of the Tile Mate is the fact that it works TWO ways! I can either use the app on my phone to locate my stuff OR press the Tile button and have it ring my phone – EVEN IF IT’S ON SILENT.
As a matter of fact, I recently lost my phone – I knew it was somewhere in or around my house – but I couldn’t find it. Once it was found, I vowed never to lose it again so I bought a HUGE silicone Kawaii ice cream shaped case so that it would be easy to see.
Thanks to Tile, I can go back to my normal slim case and not look like an adult carrying a case designed for a 12 year old girl. (Thank you Tile!)
