Motorola Keylink accessory helps you find your lost phone

Motorola Keylink accessory helps you find your lost phone
Always losing your phone? Can't remember where you put your $600 link to the outside world? If you want to avoid the rise in blood pressure that usually accompanies a misplaced handset, Motorola has a solution it calls the Motorola Keylink. With the Motorola Connect app on your phone, and Keylink in your hands, you can press a button on the accessory. As long as the misplaced phone is no more than 100 feet away, it will start to ring, which should allow you to find it.

We have to hand it to those chaps at Motorola. They have designed Motorola Keylink to work on both iOS (7.1 or higher) and Android (4.3 or higher) handsets. The Motorola Connect app is available from both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Those sporting the Motorola Moto X, Motorola DROID Turbo, or a phone running Android 5.0, can use the trusted device setting to keep their phone unlocked as long as they are in the range of the Keylink. By the way, the accessory is protected against splashes as Motorola says that it can get "a little wet."

The Motorola Keylink is priced at $24.99 and is available from Motorola.com, or from T-Mobile. The battery lasts a year, and can easily be replaced. We should also point out that if you are always losing your keys, you can also use the Keylink to find them. If you are using the Keylink as a key ring, finding your missing keys is a snap. When the keys go missing, open up the Motorola Connect app from your phone to view a map that will lead you right to them.

Get a Lumia 920, you'll notice the weight difference.

I was waiting for something like this since HTC introduced the fetch (which is ridiculously overpriced for a piece of plastic with a button on it) at a decent price, this might be it.

Can this be used as remote camera shutter?! If that is possible this gadget can be really useful, as phone finder, trusted device unlock and remote camera shutter!!

It would be better if the thing also can ring when you are looking for your keys. Using a map to find it seams too complicated.

the key chainDOES ring when you are looking for your keys. and to above, a camera shutter would be a bomb idea. Skip 1.0 -> Keylink 2.0 -> Keylink 3.0 with camera shutter. Sweeeeeet.

~25$ for this? Really??? This is ridiculous! 99% of us would just use the landline (or your better half's phone, or an internet connection) and call our phones if we want to know where they are.

You mean you can use the phone to find your keys? That's better. The article didn't had any mention about it.
