What’s New with the Tile Mate-Key Finder?
The biggest change from previous versions of Tile’s key trackers is the Tile Mate Key Finder’s size. At 1.3 x 1.3 x 0.2 inches this model is a better fit on your key chain.
It’s a very well designed product, and that’s evident from the simple design to the well laid out app. You can attach it to virtually anything, from keys to electronics to clothing. Because of the key ring, it’s also a lot easier to attach it to items like your keys or your travel luggage. The easiest way to justify the value is to consider the cost of the items you are protecting. Or use the Tile Mate adhesives (sold separately) to stick your Tile Mate device to any flat surface, allowing you to find what matters most with ease. The Tile app automatically records the last time and place it saw your item. So, if you left it somewhere, you know where to look first.
Of course, there’s no limit to how many individual Tiles you can sync with your smartphone. If you’re going to pick one up, you might as well get a few for all the items you have with you. Your keys and wallet are essential, and your laptop or other on-the-go electronics are a nice touch.
25% smaller than the earlier Tile, Tile Mate easily hooks onto keychains or attaches to anything you care about. It’s the tiny, powerful companion for life’s little valuables.
Range and sound
Our Bluetooth tracking will find items in an exceedingly short to medium vary distance. For the longer range, the Tile community’s global network can help find your item. The Tile Mate’s range sends an alert as far as 74 feet away. However, There can be some trouble hearing the alarm past 55 feet in a crowded place. These distances and volumes may be good enough for around the house, but we think it’s worth paying more for the tracker that makes it most likely you’ll find your stuff when you need to. The Mate is a little erratic when re-establishing a connection with the phone, but typically, it would reconnect within 40 to 50 feet of the tracker.
Choose Your Ringtone
Couch cushions, pockets, and purses don’t stand a chance against the powerful ring of Tile Mate. Tile Mate comes with four planned ringtones for you to choose from.
Using Tile Mate
While using it, you want to try to keep Bluetooth and GPS turned on at all times. This way, the Tile application will constantly track the location of your item, so you’ll know the last place it was within range.
As with other key trackers, you attach the Tile Mate to your key chain — or any other object you don’t care to lose — and use Bluetooth to connect the Mate with your phone. A Tile app on your Android or iOS device lets you sound the alarm on any object you’ve misplaced. Tap the Find button in the app, and the Tile will start playing a jaunty tune until you tap the Find button again. A map built into the app displays the last location where your Tile was logged, though don’t expect a detailed view.
The interface is nice and clean, and even the simplest of features are laid out intuitively. Even if you’ve never used a smartphone before, you’d have no problem figuring out how to use it.
You use the tile companion app to control any of its various trackers. The main purpose of the app is to reunite you with your lost stuff.
Tile’s two-way tracking feature is one impressive one. Just press the lone center button on the Mate, and your phone will sound an alarm that keeps playing until you unlock the phone or launch the Tile app.
Tile Mate-Key Finder is a battery-powered product, but you’ll find out quickly that there’s no way for you to open the compact case. This is because the batteries aren’t user changeable, so you’ll have to purchase a new one when yours goes dead.
Fortunately, Tile uses an incredibly efficient Bluetooth chip that allows it to last for a very long time. Under traditional use conditions, you’ll get at least a year with the Tile Mate. Your phone gives you notifications for low battery. One at 25%, letting you know that you’ll want to consider a new Tile soon. You’ll get another notification at 10%, just to make sure you didn’t forget. Since the battery lasts so long, you’ll still have at least a month to purchase a new one after the 10% notification, so you’ll never be caught without one.
Others have expressed concern regarding the disposable nature of Tile Mate. It’s true, you do have to replace it every year or so. Fortunately, Tile offers the Re-Tile program where you can trade yours in and get a replacement at a 50% discount.
