In my household, I am the worst when it comes to misplacing my keys and phone. Often my husband has to call my phone for me to find it. And if he’s not home, my sons (ages 6 and 7) will use the Find iPhone app on their iPads to help me find my phone. And when I am not misplacing my phone, I am misplacing my keys. It’s mom-brain. I am a mom-bie. Once I enter the house, I am multitasking so much, I don’t realize where my left hand is placing important items as my right hand is helping with homework and cooking meals. I am sure you can relate.
So when I heard about Kensington’s MyProximo I was like, “YES! I NEED THAT!” I received the Tag and the Fob to review on theMomBuzz and here are my thoughts.
MyProximo Fob: If you are like me and habitually misplace your keys AND phone, get the Fob for $39.99. It will work with a FREE app that you download onto your SmartPhone (Get it on Google Play or App Store). The Fob attaches to your keys. When you misplace your keys, just start the app on your phone and “find” them from the dashboard. You get to set up a specific alarm for them. It works the other way around, too. When you have your keys and NO CLUE where you phone is, push the button on the Fob and it will have your phone let out a customized sound.
MyProximo Tag: The Tag works similarly to the Fob, except it does not have a button to search for your phone. All you can do is search for the Tag FROM your phone. For that reason, the Tag is only $24.99.
Both of them have a proximity sensor. If the distance between the Tag/Fob and phone is too much an alarm will go off. This is good for theme parks, shopping, etc. I don’t need that to happen in my house, so my alarm is off. And you can also define quiet zones, where the alarms shouldn’t activate.
If you have multiple Fobs and Tags, you can name them and select new icons to help organize them. The one thing I cannot do is customize the sensitivity of my Fob or Tag, but it works fine without that option working.
If you actually lose your Tag or Fob and it isn’t coming up when you set off the alarms, you can do a FIND and it will tell you where it last sensed it on a map. It also keeps track of your battery life and whether your items are in range.
Overall, MyProximo does EXACTLY what I want and need for a great price. I would suggest it to multi-tasking moms and dads.
