Linquet, a tiny Bluetooth tracker developed by Vancouver based Linquet Technologies, that allows you to keep track of your phone, keys, wallet, child, pet etc. using an iOS / Android device or a computer, has reached its crowdfunding campaign goal of $20,000 on its first day. The innovative product promises to not just find missing objects, but actually prevent them from getting lost or misplaced in the first place.
According to the developers, users simply need to attach Linquets to their valuables and link them to their smartphone using Bluetooth. When a valuable goes out-of-range, both your smartphone and your valuable will alarm, preventing you from forgetting or losing your stuff. Each Linquet also has a programmable button which can be used for finding your phone, controlling a camera, a panic button and much more. Since Linquet is a cloud-based solution, it supports features like ‘real-time backup’ that allows a Linquet to upload the time and location to the cloud in real-time, giving you the power to locate your things afterwards.
Features and highlights:
• 1 year battery (with 24/7 usage)
• Long range of 100 ft/30 m (open field)
• Amazing Cloud-based features
• Automatic loss prevention
• Audible alarm and flashing lights
• Highly customizable
• Simple and intuitive UI
• Magic button (Phone finder, Panic button, …)
• Built-in temperature sensor
Linquet has also been selected as one of the 8 finalists for the GigaOM Mobilize 2013 Conference to be held in Silicon Valley on Oct. 16 and 17.
You can now pre-order Linquets at $2.99 per month per unit, with discounts available depending on volume. There is no cost for the device itself, while the iOS / Android app is also free to download.
