Statistically speaking, it is most likely your phone will be lost or stolen sometime in your lifetime, and for many of us, that reality has already occurred.
How do I stop losing my phone?
It is time to go on the offensive and be alerted before our phone is left behind. There is no reason to not be alerted when you phone is left behind. Assuming you can use a tracker or finder to locate a lost phone, in reality you have the stress of a lost phone. And, finders and trackers only work within Bluetooth® proximity to the phone. What if you left your phone on the park bench and drove away? Once out of range, your finder or tracker no longer can help you. And if, and only if, you happen to remember exactly where you left your phone, maybe, and just maybe, you will get there before it is gone forever.
How to get notified when you leave your phone behind?
Outside of the tracker world (and yes, they are tracking you) is the phone reminder device (PRD) niche. The industry leader in this PRD lane is the Prox PRD® by Prox Devices, Inc. Located in Silicon Valley, the Prox Devices® engineering team has developed an easy solution to help you stop losing your phone. The Prox PRD gives an alert BEFORE you leave your phone behind.
How can you avoid losing your phone at school or at the office?
The simple solution is a Phone Reminder Device that works in the background of your life, alerting you only when you are leaving your phone behind. It is very easy to lose your phone at school or the office when you are distracted by friends or co-workers. The Prox PRD will notify you before you drive off and have to turn around to retrieve your phone. Forgetting your phone is frustrating, stressful, and costly… and no longer necessary.
What are the chances of losing your phone?
Well, that depends on your circumstances, but one thing for sure is that it is a lot less likely you will lose your phone when you have a Prox PRD phone reminder device.
Here are the top 10 advantages of owning a Prox PRD Phone Reminder Device:
1. Reminder vs. Finder
The Prox PRD is a phone reminder not a phone finder. That means, it alerts you BEFORE you leave your phone behind rather than having to find it after you have left it behind. Thus, the PRD helps you before you have the stress of a lost phone. To avoid the frustration of a lost phone, a phone reminder helps you stay on top of your game with a Bluetooth® phone separation alert when your phone is no longer near you. Keep in mind, the phone reminders you see on the market only help you find your phone if you are still within proximity of your phone. Outside of that Bluetooth® proximity, you are on your own trying to find your phone.
The Prox PRD™ is one of the most reliable Bluetooth® proximity alert devices on the market today. With thousands of hours of development and user testing, the little Prox PRD™ is known for its reliability in giving prompt alerts when you are leaving your phone behind. You can count on the Prox PRD™ to give you that phone reminder alert when you are distracted and least expect it.
3. No False Alerts
The most common problem among Bluetooth® proximity alert devices is their inability to keep a good connection. When the connection is dropped, a false alert occurs. The Prox PRD was specifically designed to overcome this well-known industry problem. In fact, many devices have tried to overcome this false alert issue to no avail. Some devices have dropped their attempt to prevent their customers from becoming annoyed with too many alerts.
Alternatively, Prox Devices Inc. invested thousands of hours in development and user testing to thwart these false alerts, making Prox PRD the clear leader in this technology. Simply stated, the Prox PRD has little to no false alerts when in use.
4. Approximately 1-year Battery Life
Another industry problem with small Bluetooth® proximity devices is that the replaceable lithium coin battery only lasts a few weeks or months. Prox Devices kept this in mind when the Prox PRD was developed. Much of the code was written so that battery consumption was optimized. The estimated battery life of the replaceable CR2032 battery in the Prox PRD™ is about one (1) year.
5. No phone app
The Prox PRD is the only phone reminder device that will pair with your phone without a mobile app. The PRD can be paired and up and running in less than 30 seconds.
6. No Tracking
A lot of Bluetooth® proximity alert devices (trackers) use location services on your mobile phone. Not only does this increase battery consumption but it also is tracking you. The Prox PRD is not a tracker and it does not track you, thus giving you confidence in you remaining 100% anonymous, keeping your privacy.
The Prox PRD allows you to adjust the alert distance to one of five distance settings. The default alert distance has been extensively tested to alert you before forgetting your phone and leaving it behind in environments such as at home, at the office, in the car, or in a restaurant, store, hotel, etc. Different environments may have different alert ranges for the same alert distance setting. Do initial testing at the default alert distance before making adjustments. The PRD alerts before you get too far from your phone. Alert distance ranges can vary greatly and may be shorter or further for some phone models and environments, especially if both the PRD and phone are outside in an open space/area and there are no obstructions — e.g., buildings, walls, doors, trees, or even people.
The Prox PRD also allows you to adjust the alert tunes as well. There are multiple alert tunes to choose from which allows for a wide range of pitches to help with the hearing impaired or with people in loud industrial environments.
8. Selfie Clicker – Remote Phone Shutter Control
The Prox PRD comes with a bonus feature which has become very popular among its users. This remote camera shutter control acts as a selfie clicker and easily allows for a group of people to back away from the camera with the user being able to take multiple pictures without having to set the phone’s camera timer. This feature also allows for the starting and stopping of the camera while taking a video if the camera is in video mode.
9. iOS and Android Compatible
The Prox PRD is compatible with iOS 14.0 or later and with Android 8.0 or later.
10. No data collected AND No data sold
Prox Devices®, the company that developed the Prox PRD®, does not collect user data nor do they sell user data.
