Motorola has this week unveiled the new device called the Motorola Keylink that it has created to help you locate your smartphone or keys when you might have misplaced them.
The new Motorola Keylink takes the form of a small keyring dongle that connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth and uses a companion application that is available to load onto select Android and iOS devices.
The Motorola Keylink dongle is available to purchase for $25 and is available from both T Mobile and the official Motorola website. With the companion application available to download from the Google Play Store or the Apple iTunes App Store. Motorola explains a little more about their new system.
“Keylink is a small device that you attach to your keychain. Using the Motorola Connect app on your phone, you can connect your keys to your phone in case either tends to wander off. If your phone decides to play hide and seek with you, you can press a button on Keylink to make it ring up to 100 feet away. Or if your keys get a similar idea, you can use the Motorola Connect App to make Keylink ring.
If you own a Moto X (2nd gen.), Droid Turbo or a phone running Android 5.0, Lollipop, you can use your trusted device settings to enable the added ability to keep your phone unlocked when your keys are nearby. This way you don’t have to enter your password to use it. Just enable trusted devices by going into settings and then security. The battery lasts upwards of a year and you can replace it with a coin cell battery found in any local drug or convenience store.”
