MYNT ES by Slightech is a great solution if you are always losing your keys! I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten home and not put my keys and wallet in their designated spot – this usually results in a frantic morning when we are looking for my keys and trying to get my kids out the door quickly. Luckily, MYNT ES has a Bluetooth app and I can attach it to my keys so it will play a sound much like the “find my iPhone” so that searching is no more.
We recently tried MYNT ES when we were travelling just to make sure it kept track of our belongings. I had one MYNT ES attached to my keys which I carried on the plane with us and slipped the other MYNT ES into my checked bag. It was interesting to see my bag as it traveled through the airport on the way to be loaded onto our plane. I can see this being super helpful if someone travels frequently and is afraid of losing their bag. I also slipped one into my son’s swim bag because he seems to leave it behind frequently – this way I could find it quickly and easily without having to search since I was able to get an approximate location. Batteries inside the MYNT ES last about a year according to the manufacturer and are easily replaceable. You can use up to 8 MYNT devices at a time with the app. I also appreciated that MYNT ES was able to be used in the rain without having to worry that it would get wet like if it was raining when I was outside. In addition you can set a MYNT safe zone like at work or home so that your device is not constantly being tracked.
When you need help locating your belongings, you can simply open the app – tap it and it will send a loud sound signal to your device. The app is user friendly and quick to set up for your first time. From the time I opened the box to using MYNT was less than 10 minutes — and that included setting up two devices.
IF you lose a MYNT ES device, the information will be shared with the MYNT community and if your device is located by another MYNT user information is shared with you so you can locate it. A MYNT will last one to two months, and will decrease after that time.
In terms of enhancements, I did find that using MYNT ES decreased my battery life on my cell phone — this could be coincidental as I have an older device, but if I was using it frequently I found significant drain. Usually I would launch it once a day when I got home and then I could easily locate my keys on the off chance I didn’t hang them up where they were supposed to be.
