What is an object locator?

The first thing you should know is that an object locator is an electronic device that, when placed next to the object of interest, allows you to locate it more quickly and accurately. As you will be able to read later, its effectiveness will depend on the technology available.

These objects are usually: keys, cars, bags, bicycles and merchandise. These trackers are also available for pets and people.



How does an object locator work?

Object locators can incorporate rings that allow them to be kept attached to the item we want to have located.

Some come with a command that we will press when we want to locate the object. At that moment, it will emit a sound that will indicate its location. Others also provide location through lights, phone calls or sending text messages.



What do you have to take into account when choosing an object locator?

Learn a little more about the technical characteristics of these devices. That way, when you arrive at the store or search for them online, you won't be mistaken for a complete novice.

Technology offered GPS

The main technological development used by object locators is the Global Positioning or GPS, a system that allows determining the exact position of an object with great precision.

Devices with this technology are linked via Bluetooth through a mobile application available for Smartphones. By installing it on your mobile phone or tablet you will be able, in a matter of seconds, to view on a map the exact location of the objects to which you have connected the locator.

-Bluetooth. Other object locators use only Bluetooth connectivity: 4.0, 4.1 or 5.0, this connection allows evaluating objects to later avoid them.

In this way, interference is reduced, generating a quality connection. Usually, this technology is available for Android and iOS applications. In both, it will inform you through alarms of the location of the object.

-Mobile coverage towers. There are also object locators that do not use Bluetooth technology but instead determine the location and position through mobile coverage towers.

Location occurs thanks to the triangulation of radio signals between various radio towers in the network. This method is less accurate than GPS .

-WIFI. Object locators that haven WIFI technology take advantage of wireless access points to display the location. It is very useful when the GPS system is not appropriate. For example, in basements or other places where the signal is blocked.



In the market you can find a variety of options in terms of battery life, some locators are equipped with lithium batteries that give them an autonomy of approximately 1 year with continuous use and up to 2 years on standby.

Other devices opt for rechargeable batteries with which you won't have to worry about replacing the batteries and can recharge them as many times as you need. And there are others that work with standard AAA size batteries.



You can easily find object locators with a range between 20 and 40 meters away. Some offer search options where you can set an alarm perimeter if the object moves away from this area.

You need to take this important detail into account. Since, if you decide on an object locator that only offers you, for example, a range of 3 meters, its effectiveness and usefulness will be diminished and you will not feel satisfied with it.

Weight and dimensions

While this feature is not a limitation in terms of its usefulness, you should take its size into account if you plan to use the locator to locate small objects.

They come in a variety of sizes and shapes, some are about the size of a credit card and others are about the size of a coin. According to this, their weight is a few grams and they are made mostly of resistant and colorful plastic.



Regarding the price of object locators obviously it will depend on the functions it provides you, but you can find devices on the market starting at €15.

It is important to mention that various factors such as walls, other electronic devices and even weather conditions can affect this range.


Does Object Locator Work In Areas Where Cellular Signal Is Weak Or Non-Existent?

Yes, the object locator can work in areas with weak or non-existent cellular signal as long as Bluetooth connection or similar technologies are used for location. However, if your device requires a connection to the cloud or network-based services for some of its features, these features may not be available without an adequate cellular signal. We recommend you always review the specifications and capabilities of the device to understand its limitations and possibilities in different scenarios.


Are the Locators Waterproof Or Do I Need To Purchase Additional Protection?

Some models of object locators are waterproof, but not all. It is essential that you check the specifications of the product before purchasing it. If your tracker is not waterproof and you plan to expose it to wet conditions, it is recommended that you purchase additional protection to ensure its durability and optimal performance.


What is the Average Battery Life of the Locator? And How Long Does It Take To Fully Charge?

The battery life of an object locator varies by model and usage. On average, many locators can last 3-6 months on a single charge, although some high-end models can offer up to 12-month autonomy. As for charging time, most devices are fully charged in 2-3 hours. However, it is always advisable to consult the product manual for more precise information.


Are Locators Compatible With All Smartphone Operating Systems?

Most object locators are compatible with the most popular operating systems, such as Android and iOS. However, some models may not be compatible with less common operating systems or very old versions. Before purchasing a tracker, it is essential to verify compatibility with your mobile device to ensure correct operation.


What Do I Do If I Lose My Tracker Remote Or It Gets Damaged?

If you lose the control of your tracker or it is damaged, the first option is to consult the product manual or the official website of the manufacturer. Many locators offer a replacement or pairing function with a new remote. You may also be able to use a mobile app as an alternative to the remote. If neither of these options is viable, it may be necessary to purchase a replacement remote or, ultimately, a new locator.


Can I Connect Several Objects To The Same Locator Or Do I Need A Different One For Each Object?

It depends on the model and the characteristics of the locator. Some devices allow you to connect and track multiple objects simultaneously from the same unit or app, while others are designed to track a single object. It is important to review the specifications of the product and make sure it meets your needs before making the purchase.
