Finding lost items is made easy with Bluetooth search which is an available feature for quite a number of Bluetooth items tracker
This devices however, would have been a much delighting device If they can work without an active network connectivity which is a common problem with most Bluetooth trackers in the market. However, Samsung might have a better approach to the problem. It is launching a ‘SmartThings Tracke’r that uses low-power LTE-M data to share its location where Bluetooth and other technologies won’t have the range. You could track your backpack even if you only remembered it when you got home.
As the Smart things implies, the Samsung tracker, other than keep tab on lost gadgets, the smart thing hub can multi-function as a sensor that can detect other smart things around it, as well as serve as a control switch , like putting on electronic devices such as smart TV, Smart AC, Smart sockets e.t.c. You can also alternately set up geo-fencing alerts to warn when a tracker leaves a given area (say, your dog escaping the backyard) or send a location to friends and family by double-tapping the power button.
You are going to have to pay more for the Samsung device with a software app, although not for an extravagant price as you may think, but a price that sets you back as much as $99, an up front with a year of free service when it reaches AT&T on September 14th (a Verizon counterpart is due later in 2018), but a later payment of $5 per month or $50 per year to maintain the LTE-M connection after that. This is for people, pets and must-have belongings where the subscription is easily worth the peace of mind it brings to the table.
