iHere 3.0 bluetooth key finder review
There can be nothing worse than losing keys and getting locked out. If you are someone who often loses or misplaces keys or important items, then here is something extremely useful for you. Meet the iHere 3.0 key finder. It is a little Bluetooth enabled item locator that can be attached to any key chain and it will help you find lost items using your smart phone as long as they are within the Bluetooth range. Just attach iHere to your key chain or keep in your purse or attach to any item which you don’t want to lose and you are good to go.
The design of iHere 3.0 is very simple, it has a triangular shape and there is one button and LED light. This button is used to find the phone or it can be programmed to trigger several tasks. I’ll discuss about this feature later, first let’s talk about the main selling point of the iHere; that is the item locating feature. The next time if you lose your keys or any items which is attached to iHere, you just need to open the app on smartphone and hit the ‘Find’ button. iHere will start beeping and flashing the LED light. Now you can easily locate your misplaced item. The Bluetooth connection range is about 75 feet radius which is good enough for most of us. The iHere app is available for both Android and iOS and it is extremely easy to use.
Another cool feature of iHere is that if you misplace your phone and cannot find it, you can just press the button on iHere and your phone will start ringing. There are some added features of iHere that can come handy for some users. The button of the key finder can be programmed to trigger several tasks; like you can program it to take photos, or start recording voice or even locate your car. If you love to take selfies, then you will definitely going to appreciate this feature. You can customize the iHere button to take selfies when it is pressed. So from now you don’t need to press the on-screen button to take photos. Once the button is pressed the app will take photos instantly. All of your selfies will come prefect. Cool, isn’t it?
You can also start voice recording by using the button if you wish to do so. The car locator is kind of useful when you are parking the car in a huge parking lot. Once you have parked the car just press the button on iHere and it will save the location on the app. To find the car just open the app and it will guide you. It works similar to the ZUS smart car charger, but here you need to manually save the location of the car everytime.
I’ve been using the key finder for a few weeks. I’m pretty much happy with the usefulness of this small gadget. It makes life a little bit simpler for me. I don’t need to worry about my keys now. You might be wondering about the battery life. I’m happy to report that it is excellent. After using it for more than three weeks, that battery dropped by just 17%. So it doesn’t need to be charged frequently.
I would like to point out one bug in the mobile application that I’ve noticed. If you keep the iHere app running in the background all the time, then everything works perfectly, but if you close the app then nothing happens when the button is pressed. I hope this issue will be resolved in the future version of the app. The core function of iHere is not affected by this though, that means you can always locate the key finder from the phone.
iHere 3.0 is available for $19.99. You can get it from Nonda website or buy it from Amazon.
