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.
excellent pricing. Very pleased with the purchase and product.
Purchased for my son that loses his keys daily, the perfect gift, the range is very good can hear the beep on any level of the house and into the garage!
This has already paid me back in the time in our house we spend looking for the TV remote and car keys. For the keys its perfect-for the remotes we had to get more creative as this really are not the right shape to stick to anything like that. We have narrow cable ties that wrap around the remote between the buttons and the fob sticks out from the side but although its unwieldy-it works!! Fantastic price at $20 and actually bought another for a friend with the same issue-she swears it will save her marriage. I'm guessing the tiles would be better for the remotes, phones or tablets but I'm not willing to splash that much cash on those so I'm really happy with my purchase.
Works just as expected. Now when the kids hide the remotes we have a pretty good chance of finding them in less than 20 minutes. Great invention. A remote that finds your remotes
