Portronics has launched a two-way anti-lost cum key-finder called Tring. Tring will help a user keep track of valuables that have a tendency of being misplaced like phone, wallets, car keys, etc. This device will also allow you to keep a check on the whereabouts of your young children or pets, in case they wander off at a park or a shopping mall.
Tring is a multi-purpose device with a key-finder function and a remote-camera shutter function. You can connect to Tring using an Apple or an Android phone using the “Tring Track” app. It pairs with the phone via Bluetooth 4.0 (low energy).
After pairing with smartphone, you just need to attach Tring to any of your valuables like wallet, key-chain, or handbags using the Key Finder function. Now, if you misplace any of these articles, you just need to press a button in “Tring Track” app of your paired smartphone. As you start moving with your phone in suspected area of lost item, the Tring will start beeping when it comes within 50 feet of the phone. Alternately, if you have misplaced your phone, you just need to press the single button on Tring Tracker, and the phone will start ringing even if the phone is in silent mode.
The anti-lost function of Tring will make your smartphone and your Tring device buzz if they are separated by more than 10 meters, and will continue to do so until brought back in to range. These alerts are avoided in “safe zones” like your home or office. Your smartphone stores the last location recorded on the map when it disconnects from the Tring Tracker. The in-built battery is claimed to last over a year, and can also take pictures or selfies when connected to a smartphone.
Portronics Tring Tracker is IP67 Water and Dust Proof and comes in white colour. It is priced at Rs 999.
