Never Lose Your Possessions Again With This Cool New TechUpsource
Of all the things that can waste your time, losing your valuables is probably the worst. Even though I am generally very careful about where I leave my stuff, I will sometimes lose track of my wallet or phone. The advice that I have been given is to cancel all of your credit cards as soon as you lose your wallet but that is a massive pain, especially when you could have just lost it somewhere in your house. Lapa promises to fix all of those problems.
Lapa is a small piece of hardware that can be attached to a keychain or fit nicely into a wallet. It uses Bluetooth and connects to your phone through a free app so that you can find your lost items quickly and without hassle and, will even show you on a map where your lost items are. If you want to be extra sure that you will not lose your stuff, Lapa can be configured to alert you when it is not within a certain radius. The Lapa boasts a one year long battery life and the battery is easy to replace so you only run the risk of losing your belongs one day out of every year.
But what if you lost your phone. You could call it, but if you are like me and prefer to have your phone on vibrate or silent, then calling it becomes nearly useless. Lapa has a solution for that, too. By pressing the Lapa as a button, it will send a signal to your phone, and your phone will sound an alarm regardless of any other sound settings that might be on your phone.
They even have a wristband that you can put on your kids so that you don’t lose them. If your kids go outside a certain radius from you it will immediately alert you. While this might seem a little bit controlling at first, if your kid has half of the ability to get lost that I did, then it sort of makes sense. Either way it is a whole lot less restricting than putting your kids on a leash.
While the Lapa does not have an unlimited range it does have a line of site of 60 meters (or 197 feet). It will also capture the last place it was located before losing signal. If you still cannot find it then you can also set its location to public so that anyone else who has the app will be notified if they are in range of your Lapa. Just don’t put your wallet’s location to public – or you’ll be calling to cancel those credit cards after all.
