TracMo has introduced what it claims is one of the first Bluetooth 5 trackers available to help users find lost items such as keys, smartphones or vehicles.

The tracker includes a Mesh network, smart home integration and patent-pending technology to increase battery life. TracMo says consumers can now customize each individual tracker to find items up to 400 feet away, which the company claims is four times farther than its competitors.

The Bluetooth tracker includes support for IFTTT (IF This Then That), Amazon Echo, Philips Hue and NEST. The battery saving technology expands the battery’s life on the device up to 18 months, while at the same time preventing the app from draining the user’s phone battery running in the background.

The tracker is available for preorder with a starting price of $14 with shipment expected at the end of 2017. You can learn more information about the device by visiting: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tracmo-the-world-s-1st-bluetooth-5-tracker#/
