How To Choose the Perfect Lost Item Tracker for You: A Guide

Are you tired of spending 30 minutes every morning trying to locate your misplaced items? Do you wish there was a preventative way to find them at a moment's notice? If so, then you need to learn all that you can about buying a lost item tracker.

Doing so can benefit you in several ways. You'll have more peace of mind, take less time to regain possession of your lost belongings and more. But how can you find the perfect lost item tracker for your needs?

See below for an in-depth guide that lists all of the factors you should consider when buying one.

1. Look for Variety

When it comes to misplacing items, we're all at fault. The bevy of devices we now have in our everyday lives makes it harder and harder to keep tabs on their location.

Thankfully, you can invest in an item tracker to help you quickly find things like your TV remotes or tablets, as well as more essential items like your wallet, keys, and smartphone.

But as you well know, these things vary in size quite a bit. The item tracker that fits your TV remote won't fit as efficiently on your keys. The item tracker you use for your keys won't fit your wallet, you need something that can slide right into it.

For this reason, we recommend that you find an item tracker company that you can trust. One that offers several different products.

Here at Pebblebee, we've created the perfect GPS item tracker for any item. Our Black Card has a slim body that slides perfectly inside a wallet. Our Finder 2.0 is the perfect solution for a Bluetooth keychain and general use as well (such as on your remote).

We also have our Found LTE device which is a cellular and Bluetooth tracker. It is rechargeable and has a has a long battery life to ensure it's always on when you need it most. Be sure to invest in all that fit your needs!

2. Proper Tracking Range

Imagine this scenario with us, if you will. You've invested in a certain brand of dog tracker simply because it's the one that your friend/relative purchased for their pup in an emergency.

Then, one day, you notice that the gate to the backyard is open and your dog is nowhere to be found. Depending on how far they got before you noticed they were missing, your device may not be able to track them.

Common Bluetooth trackers typically only cover around a 200-foot range. Even if Fido is only 250 feet away, that tracker isn't likely to pick up their location. Just as a point of reference, your Bluetooth tracker's coverage doesn't even span the length of a football field (360 feet).

Thankfully, we have a solution! Our Found device has GPS tracking that works with the latest network technology (LTE-M & POLTE). With it on your dog's collar, you'd be able to easily locate and pick up Fido from wherever he/she ran off to.

With a proper GPS item tracker, you can have more peace of mind.

3. Notification Features

Granted, when you're purchasing a tracker to keep tabs on household items (like the TV remote), the tracker doesn't need full GPS abilities. Our Finder 2.0 is the perfect solution for those general-use items in or around the house.

However, if you're wanting to track things like your dog or your keys, then you need to have notification features. This can alert you to an emergency before it occurs.

Our Found device allows you to set up virtual fencing around your property. If your dog passes the parameters that you've set on the device, it will send a notification to your phone right away. That way, you can reign them back in before they get too far away.

Notification features will help you ensure that all your valuables never stray too far away from your possession!

4. Consider the Design

We touched on this a bit already, but it bears worth repeating: your lost item tracker should have an optimal design for how you plan to use it.

If you purchase a tracker that's intended to use on a keychain, you won't be able to use it efficiently for your wallet. You need something that slides into one of the cardholder pockets to help you declutter your wallet.

Also, don't purchase anything too bulky. Size doesn't equal coverage. All of our products are made with a compact design, yet pack a powerful punch for tracking range.

5. Compatability With Your Phone

Of course, a GPS item tracker won't be any use to you if it can't communicate with the type of smartphone that you use. There are a surprising number of item trackers out there that are only compatible with one software.

All of our Pebblebee devices are compatible with both iOS and Android, so you'll never have to worry about the efficiency or connection.

Instead, you can purchase our products that fit your needs to keep track of your dog, phone, keys, wallet, and more without any setbacks!
