I love this key finder. Unlike the reviewer who says they admit that they never lose anything, I admit that I always lose my keys. I have only had this key finder for a few weeks and I have already used it twice to find my keys.
The packaging was easy to open and the fobs were easy to set up. It came with four batteries which I had to put into each fob but they were easy to install. Fortunately I had four AA batteries for the transmitter because they were not included with the device. Again, they were easy to install. After installing the batteries, I placed the fobs all over the house, including in my wife's purse and in a drawer. They were all easy to find and the sound was loud enough that I could year the ones in the purse and drawer even from other rooms.
It would be nice if the fobs were a little smaller but they are not bad at all. The only ones I have found that were smaller did not have replaceable batteries. I would rather have the larger ones and be able to replace the batteries instead of having to replace them every year or so. They are small enough that I have two of them on my key ring. The reason being that I have a removable section with the key for my golf cart and I want to be able to track both rings, even when separated.
I would like to be able to track devices from my Android phone but the locators that do that are much more expensive. For the money, you can't go wrong with these.
I got this for my friend and she just loves it. she has it on her Key chain ,in her purse, Eyeglass case, etc and as she says she never spends time finding her lost things. When you want to find anything, please make sure you don't have any disturbances. if the speaker hole is covered, the alert can really be muffled.
Just very nicely done. Very attractive packaging. Works very well.
Never will have a problem finding keys again
Great gift for my hubby! He is constantly on the run and he would misplace a school bus in an empty parking lot. Hands down a must have, great product not to big and audible beep is clear and strong. Thanks from this wife who has enjoyed not playing scavenger hunt!
Great product. Works so well. Press the button and release and the beeping sound can be heard. Finds items in other rooms, under cushions, in drawers and in purses. Has worked well each time it has been needed. The flashlight comes in handy and although I thought I would not use it, I was wrong. Well made, attractive and easy to use. Highly recommend, if you are like me, and lose your keys or phone more often than I want to admit. Has made my life easier.
My son is a college student and lives at home. He was always losing his keys on a frequent basis; and actually called me at work last December 20 minutes before a final exam to ask me if his keys were in my car. Desperate to put a stop to this problem. I decided to purchase this key finder for him for Christmas. I researched locators on Amazon and found this Esky Wireless. It was a great price with great reviews. I was afraid my son would think it was lame, but when he opened it, he laughed. However, a week later, he informed me it was his favorite Christmas gift. He loves it! It works great and I am very pleased with my purchase. Now when his keys go missing, he uses the locator and no more lost keys. And no more frantic phone calls at work!
This was a gift from my son who thought it would help when the cats give the slip in the garden. It does! Because of predators (coyotes, bobcats, eagles, etc.) I supervise all outdoor time but I also like to get a little work done meaning my eyes are not on cats 100% of the time. The little stinkers take advantage of this and hide quietly under bushes until they have me searching the whole property in a total panic. I believe this amuses them. But now with the key finder on their collars, the advantage is mine although I find I do need to be within 20-30 feet of the hiding place to both to trigger the alarm as well as to hear it. The beeping could be louder but it's a safe level for the cats and doesn't frighten them. The finder also works well indoors and will trigger through walls.
I've uploaded a short video that demonstrates the key..now cat...finder in use. The first scene shows our gray cat reacting the very first time his collar beeped (shot indoors while the cat was in his play tent.) The second scene demonstrates the cat finder working after the cat sneaked through the fence to hide in the bushes around the neighbor's porch. The third scene is from our own garden where we have a dense philodendron thicket. Unfortunately, my cell phone microphone did a poor job of picking up the beeping during that recording but the sound was clearly audible from at least 20 feet. There is a set of ten rapid beeps with each button press (I triggered the beeping additional times out of frame in both the outdoor scenes.)
Update after 5 months of use:
The battery on one of the receivers died after what I estimate to be about 700 activations. Not a big deal since the replacement is the very common 2025 disc battery BUT I also dropped the sending unit about 4 feet onto concrete which caused it to stop working. I immediately ordered another set from Amazon and was hoping not to have to change out the receiver fobs on the cat collars but alas the new sending unit was not compatible with the old receivers so I had to break a few nails switching to the new fobs.
This item will keep you from choking your teenager.
