Helps finding misplaced objects.
This gentleman would leave his walking stick in various locations around the house or when out and about, then struggling to remember where it was when he needed it.
The device came preprogrammed, It has four fobs to allow you to track multiple items.
Putting in the batteries was a bit fiddly and needed a coin, the sound was a little quiet and not very directional. The fobs would attach easily to keys but not easy to attach to other items prone to getting lost like spectacles or walking sticks. You must remember which item each colour button on the transmitter refers to and to return the transmitter to the base plate or it might get lost too.
"This is a nice idea but does not solve the whole problem, only useful for larger items."
