TrackR helps you locate anything within seconds using your smartphone.
I had the chance to talk with a lot of interesting companies while at CES 2016. One of them was TrackR, a company that designed a way for your phone to keep track of your belongings. TrackR is a small, coin-sized device that attaches to valuable items with the aid of the TrackR app. I had the opportunity to talk with the CEO, Chris Herbert. Check out the video below.
Their team was showcasing their latest product, TrackR Atlas. The product plugs into each room of your home and maps out the house on a mobile floorplan and pinpoints where your items are. With voice capabilities, alerts sent to your phone no matter where you are and an item history database, TrackR atlas lets your phone remember where everything is so that you don’t have to. Trackr Atlas is also open-source technology, meaning it scans for all third-party BLE devices in addition to the TrackR bravos. They also described the easy process of changing out the USB-based plug, allowing multiple countries to use the beacon in their rightful outlets.
The other big release for TrackR was the Works with TrackR program, which showcased partnerships with companies like HP, Mezzi, Cross, Keyport and more. It’s going to be a big year for TrackR and I’m really glad I had the chance to talk with them.
