Tile, the leading smart location company, has released a new version of its popular Bluetooth trackers that have increased range and are now twice as loud so you’ll never leave anything behind.
There are two new devices in the Tile Pro Series – Tile Style and Tile Sport – which are now available in Australia.
These new products work with the new Tile app and set up a link between the Tile and your item and can alert you when that Bluetooth link is broken.
It will also provide the last known location of that object and see it on a map.
You can also rely on the Tile community when a person with their own Tile happens to pass by an item you’ve listed as missing. This works anonymously and can help reunite Tile users with their things.
You can attach a Tile to your keys, your bag, your car, your umbrella and even your pet.
It’s also possible to ring the Tile from your phone to locate an object that’s in your home or office and view it in real time on a map within the Tile app.
Now users can adjust the Tile’s volume and have two additional ringtones so users can personalise the sound.
If you don’t want to disturb others with your search, the proximity sensor can visually let the user know if they are getting closer or further away.
You can even use them in reverse to use the Tile to find your phone even if it’s on silent.
It’s also possible to use the Google Home smart speaker to help find your misplaced items.
Onboard the new Tile Style and Tile Sport are redesigned proximity sensors for improved accuracy along with an expanded 65m range.
There are more 230 countries that are using Tile to locate their things over two million times every day and they’ve recovered everything from stolen cars, bikes, jewelry, pets, passports and cameras as well as keys and wallets.
Tile Sport and Tile Style are both waterproof and rugged and are twice as loud and have twice the range of the previous model.
The Tile’s batteries can run for a full year so there’s no need to remember to charge them.
The Tile Pro Series is available now and are priced at $50 each or $90 for a two-pack. They can be purchased from Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi.
