Motorola Keylink Helps Find Your Keys or Phone When Your Brain Can't

By Darren Orf on at

Motorola has had a busy couple of months (like really busy), but they've still got one more little piece of hardware to push out to the masses. This is the Motorola Keylink, a keychain that will help you find your misplaced keys or smartphone, Android and iPhone alike.

This little device taps into the Motorola Connect app, which you can download from iTunes or Google Play. When you lose your keys, nab your handset and send the keychain ringing. If you find yourself in the dire situation of a missing smartphone, then Keylink can active your phone's ringtone from up to 100 feet away. Thanks to an estimated year of battery life, you never have to worry about charging either. But, if you lose your keys and your phone, then you're out of luck. There's only so much technology can do for you.

Motorola has baked in an extra feature for Google-powered devices. Anyone with second generation Moto X or an Android phone running Lollipop can enable the Keylink as a trusted device, so you never have to unlock your phone when your keys are near. But if you have nosey roommates, family members, or significant others, maybe you just leave that setting off.

This isn't the first gadget that's aspired to pull this off, but Motorola's had a great track record recently. At $25 (£16 converted, exact UK price TBC) the price seems right, too. [Motorola via Droid Life]
