There are seven top reasons why the Prox PRD® has become the best phone separation alert device on the market. Prox PRD’s patent pending Advanced Alert Technology is the game changer that makes the difference. The seven reasons are listed below, but take a close look at #7 because it will make you stop and think.
How does a phone separation alert work?
Phone separation alert devices have been around for over ten (10) years. They are Bluetooth® separation audible alarms or alerts that a device gives when you are no longer connected or within proximity of your mobile cell phone. Thus, if you walk away from your phone, the Bluetooth connection is broken and you get an alert. This gives you the peace of mind before you lose your phone. It is giving you a heads-up before you leave your phone behind. And, sometimes leaving your phone behind leads to it being lost or stolen and gone forever. So, why not get an alert before it is lost and then you have to find it.
Although there are hundreds of item finder (e.g., key finder, wallet finder, etc.) devices on the market, there are only a few phone reminder separation alert devices on the market. The reason there are so few phone reminders on the market is that these Bluetooth devices have historically struggled with false alerts that are caused by the device not being able to keep a secure Bluetooth connection with the mobile phone, thus making them very unreliable.
The most common manufacturer’s solution has been to increase the power to help maintain the Bluetooth connection with the cell phone. Although this solution has reduced some of the false alerts, it has not reduced all of them. Not by a long shot. In addition, increasing the power significantly reduces the device’s battery life and significantly increases the alert distance where an alert doesn’t occur until you are down the road a bit. This can be very frustrating.
Other phone separation alert devices have created alert-free zones (Wi-Fi-based) and alert-free times of day (adjustable on their app). There are pros and cons associated with both of these solutions. Sometimes you may want a phone separation alert to trigger in these zones or during these times so you don’t leave your phone behind.
The whole phone separation alert (phone reminder) market has changed with the introduction of the Prox PRD® (Phone Reminder Device) with its no false alerts and a replaceable battery with an estimated battery-life of up to one (1) year.
The Top 7 Reasons the Prox PRD is the best phone separation alert device on the market today
1) No false alerts
Thousands of hours of engineering and testing has gone into the PRD’s software so that all false alerts are eliminated, even at the lowest alert distance. The PRD has been tested in hundreds of environments and when tested against other phone separation alert devices, the Prox PRD has always come out on top.
2) No app
The Prox PRD can be up and running in a matter of seconds with a simple Bluetooth® connection. There is no downloadable mobile phone app required. The PRD is the only phone separation alert device on the market that works without the use a phone app. For other devices, you must keep their app open in the background for the device to work. This has an additional drain on the phone’s battery and keeping the app open can be annoying.
3) No tracking
The Prox PRD doesn't collect, use, or sell any user data. The PRD works without location tracking (“location services”) which drains your phone’s battery. It is 100% private.
4) Adjustable alert distance
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 will alert 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.
5) Smart learning
The Prox PRD was developed so that it aggressively learns and adapts to the user’s environment (smart learning) very quickly which helps eliminate false alerts. This is all done automatically, while the PRD is being used normally.
6) Movement-based alerts
The Prox PRD was designed to alert only when the PRD is on the move under its default “Home Mode”. This prevents alerts from occurring in the middle of the night when you are asleep.
7) Reliable separation alert even if your phone is turned off
The Prox PRD is the ONLY phone separation alert device on the market that will let you know if you have left your phone behind even if the phone or Bluetooth® is temporarily turned off. (It also works around “Airplane Mode" seamlessly.)
There are many more Prox PRD™ secrets, but the bottom line is that the PRD knows when to alert and only alerts when you are leaving your phone behind. It also, automatically knows when it is not in use for an extended period of time and goes to sleep so it drastically reduces battery consumption.
The Prox PRD® truly is the “App-less One-der” (no app, one button)! The Prox Devices® Team is so sure you will love this device that we give you a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. We look forward to you order.
