The Best Smart Key Finders

The Best Smart Key Finders

Sometimes I hate leaving the house. Somehow my keys are seldom on the hook I made for them and someone always moves my bag. My house is tech savvy and I can walk in and ask Alexa to turn the light on, add something to my to-do list and play me some soothing music while in bed without moving.

It all seems quite relaxing and that’s how I wanted it to be. Once I’m up though, I couldn’t find my keys and all that time I saved by having things set up just the way I liked it was going to waste.

Thank goodness the key finder fairies heard my absent-minded whimper and created some models that work with what I already have set up. Which one is the best Bluetooth tracker though?

TrackR

This is just like most Blue tooth key finders only it works with Alexa.
It works by pairing however many tags you have using the app provided, leave Blue tooth enabled and away it goes. I can wake up and ask Alexa where my keys are and she won’t even mind if I yell at her.
TrackR comes in two different styles, the Pixel and the Bravo. Both user replaceable batteries and they can both use crowd find feature that can help you find your missing item should they be out of range.

The Pixel

  • Is 93dB
  • Has LED lights for night-time hide and seek and is the size of a coin

The Bravo

  • Is 82dB
  • Is Brushed Aluminum and is super slim
  • It can be personalized for an extra $5 with either a picture or engraving.
  • The range is 100 feet but obstacles such as furniture or wall can reduce this. This system does not use GPS. Most of the time the last location will be your address.

Pebblebee

  • It comes in rose gold, gun-metal black and classic silver and it has a little bee on it. This has a range of up to 200 feet, more than any I have seen on the market. It has replaceable batteries which last up to 1 year.
  • It comes in 3 different types; Finder, Honey and Stone. So far only the Finder model can be connected to Alexa or Google Assistant
  • LED for night-time finding and a loud buzzer,
  • Surgical Stainless Steel,
  • Works without the app running,
  • Left behind notification,
  • Selfie button.
  • Complaints of false alarms have caused user distress.
