CobraTag App (free for iPhone, iPad and Android)
An adult client I evaluated with organizational challenges identified one of the main concerns was locating keys. Although this was not the only area of organizational concern, it was one of the most important ones for the client.
A search ensued resulting in possible key locator devices. One such device, called the CobraTag, had good reviews and had apps for Android and iOS devices which would accommodate the clients mobile devices. Connect to a device or object, like keys, this Bluetooth device can be located by the tag and what it is attached to or by the device which has the app installed.
The Cobra Tag Universal for Android and iPhone/iPad (46.50) is an electronic tag that can be attached to keys, phones, bags, pets, camera’s or suitcases for two way communicating between devices.
By activating the tag and pairing it via Bluetooth to your mobile you link the devices. The alarm sounds when the link is broken between the two devices, or when you press the sound button on either device. A map link can also be sent by your device to your email indicating the location of it as managed in the app settings.
The devices or tag can be located when within 30 feet. The tag uses a battery that can be charged with a USB cable. Battery life is reported to be up to one week.
