The Find One, Find All
This Finding Essential is a battery-powered, radio-controlled homing device that you attach to the two items you never want to lose -- your keys and wallet.
Put the fob on your keys and the credit-card-sized device in your wallet. When you press a button on the locator, the devices ring like a cell phone (as long as they’re within a 10-foot radius).
The EZ-Find! 25 Item Wireless Locator
Have lots of items you tend to misplace? This consists of 25 colored fobs and a remote. Hook the fobs to things you need to take with you -- or have trouble finding around the house (you can even hook up your pets or a small child).
Remote Play’s TagAlert 200
If you lose things outside your house, you may be the answer. Attach the "monitor" fob to your belt loop or key ring (or keep it tucked into your pocket) and attach the "alert" tags to two valuables (such as your wallet and cell phone).
An alarm sounds if the monitor fob and alert tags get separated by more than 30 feet (in high-sensitivity mode) or 100 feet (in low-sensitivity mode).
