Currently live on Indiegogo, the Button TrackR is a product that helps users track lost items. The product quickly reached a funding goal of $15,000 and still has plenty of time left in the campaign.
The Button TrackR is a combination of small, quarter-sized tracking devices and a mobile app that works with newer iPhone and Android software. The app can track up to 10 devices within a distance of up to 100 feet, so the Button TrackR may not going to help you track down your iPad that was stolen and taken across town, but it is sure to help you find your keys on Monday morning after they fell in the crack of your couch. (Admit it, you’ve been there.)
The app also sports some additional functionality…
From the app, you can set a custom icon, ring the selected device, and see on a map where you last left your item (or where you parked your car if that is what you are tracking). You can also choose to be alerted with a custom ring tone.
The separation alarm enables you to be reminded that you are leaving your item (or phone) behind with a brief chime.
The app also has an Anti Theft Mode which will cause the Button TrackR to continuously ring if your item gets stolen. It’s like a modern day car alarm. You can silence the alarm with a single touch within the app.
The device isn’t unique to the world of crowdfunding. We covered the Wallet Trackr back in November of last year, which provided similar functionality albeit in a larger form factor. Regardless, the crowd has spoken. This one is already funded.
