[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - The Find My Stuff app is a universal solution for tracking physical objects through Bluetooth technology. The app communicates with the beacon to track the exact location of the beacon, which is then displayed through the app. The mobile device's built-in maps feature can be used to track the beacon's location in real-time. The app user can adjust the settings to be alerted if the beacon leaves a specified range.
There are currently many different beacons available on the market including Trackr, Estimote, Jaalee, Roximity, RadBeacons, Glimworm, G-Tag, and more. As long as the beacon model operates through the iBeacon protocol, the Find My Stuff app is compatible with it as well.
Examples of app and beacon tracking:
1.A user attaches a beacon to car keys. The next day, the user cannot find their car keys. The Find My Stuff app is activated, and the user is instantly alerted to the exact location of the car keys.
2.A user attaches a beacon to a vehicle. During the night, a thief is able to steal the car, and begins to drive away. As soon as the beacon reaches the user-specified range, a loud alert will be emitted from the mobile device. The beacon's location can be tracked in real-time via Maps functionality.
Users can track multiple items simultaneously. Car keys, vehicles, and other valuables can all be tracked at the same time without any issues. Users can also set up "Safe Zones", which are specific locations and WiFi networks in which the user will not receive notifications. There are no limits with the Find My Stuff app, and no registration is required. The history of location changes is logged, and can be viewed at any time.
