TrackR will map your home to find your goodies

Finally stop losing your keys

TrackR unveiled two new products just before CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new devices offer a smaller and lighter form factor and a wallet-thin credit card sized design.

One of the devices is called the TrackR pixel, which will be offered in nine colors and starts at a lower price point. The new device will allow consumers to track all of their items at home and on the go. TrackR pixel can quickly locate items in a similar way to TrackR bravo, but is smaller, lighter, and has an LED light that turns on when it is activated. The device comes in at just 26mm in diameter, and is only 5mm thick.

The TrackR wallet 2.0 was also introduced, becoming one of the thinnest trackers on the market. The wallet-version is just 2mm thick, so it can slide into your wallet just as easily as a common credit card. The company stated that the TrackR wallet 2.0 uses “new carbon fiber technology,” which allows the device to be thin, and offers all of the functionality that TrackR bravo offers. The new TrackR wallet also offers replaceable CR2016 batteries.

The devices work with TrackR atlas, which is a Bluetooth, Wi-Fi wall plug. TrackR atlas runs on the TrackR cloud-based platform to create a floorplan of your home and detect any tagged item within. Users simply build the floor plan on the app and can see the specific rooms the tagged items are in. You can also set alerts for when an item enters or leaves a given room, and get a history of where items have been.

TrackR atlas will integrate with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices so consumers will be able to ask Alexa where an item is and have her direct them to the correct room in their house. Plus, TrackR atlas will work with other Bluetooth devices, including other trackers.

“Our goal at TrackR is to offload the task of remembering where items are to computers, so people can take care of more important things,” said Chris Herbert, CEO and Co-Founder of TrackR. “The more things people can track, the more people who have the app, the less expensive and more integrated we can have TrackR devices – all of these contribute to making it easier and faster for people to find the stuff they need. We’ll do that for you so you can clear that headspace and time for higher-level tasks.”

TrackR pixel is available for pre-order now for $24.99 and will begin shipping in Spring 2017. TrackR wallet 2.0 is available for pre-order now for $29.99 and will be available in late Spring 2017. TrackR atlas is available for pre-order now for $39.99 and will begin shipping in Spring 2017.
