About Phone Halo:

Phone Halo tracks and connects any personal valuable to the internet by harnessing the power of Bluetooth enabled smartphones. The time spent searching and cost of replacing lost smartphones, tablets, keys, luggage, purses, and other items makes protecting your valuables critical. The Bluetooth tracking system prevents you from losing important valuables.

The system works by downloading the Phone Halo application to your smartphone and attaching Phone Halo Bluetooth tags to the items you want to protect (keys, purse, computer bag, etc.). The software monitors the distance between the phone and item up to 35 feet.

Phone Halo does 3 things to protect your items:

  1. Recover: When the Bluetooth disconnects, Phone Halo records the GPS coordinates to pinpoints the item’s last known location on a Google map and can send out when and where the item was left.
  2. Locate: Phone Halo acts as a 2 way finder by beeping your belongings at the press of a button.
  3. Protect: Phone Halo wirelessly tethers your phone and item. If the items become separated, both can ring to remind you something is being left behind and the application can lock your phone.

Here is a short video on how Phone Halo works:

    The site is nice although the font is a little unclear in the inner pages.
    The product could clearly help anyone although it is a bit pricey and I’m not sure the “pain” of the people justifies it.
    The amazon integration promotes a bad user experience (getting users out of your site without notification)
