Do you, or someone you know often lose smartphones?
Duet, and the PROTAG app, is an entire eco-system built upon latest Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy technology, to prevent you from losing your phone. It’s your phone’s ever watchful buddy.
Stretch Goals (NEW!):
1.You'll Never Lose Your Smartphone Again
Be alerted quickly if you've left your smartphone behind! Duet's in-built alarm immediately beeps anytime you’re more than 10m away from your phone, so you can hear and return immediately to retrieve it before its lost.
Let's say you’ve accidentally dropped your phone out of your pocket in a cafe and walked off. With duet's beep, you’ll know it right away. And for those of us with a habit of losing phones, you will find that Duet’s alarm trains your brain to develop the good habit of checking if the phone’s on you always. Say goodbye forever to the panic, worry and frustration of losing personal messages, contact lists and selfie photos.
Prompt - Left your phone behind? You will be immediately alerted by duet’s in-built speaker
Intuitive use- Just press a button on duet, and you can audibly ring your phone even if its in silent mode. Great if you often leave keys under the sofa.
Everlasting - Easy to replace battery gives you 6 months of uninterrupted power.
Discreet - With Wifi Safe zones,duet knows when to alert you, and when not to. Useful especially if you work in confined spaces such as offices or classrooms.
Amazing connectivity - duet works even in airplane mode. All you need is to turn on Bluetooth.
2.You'll Never Lose Your Valuables Too
Duet can be attached to your valuables. It works together with the all-new PROTAG™ app. The app constantly monitors your duet-tagged valuables. For example, if you've left your wallet behind in the cafe, the app will notify you. And you can even see the last known GPS location of your valuables on the map. This way, you can be assured that your valuables are always being safeguarded too.
3.You'll Love That It's Versatile
While designing duet, we strove to keep the form factor small, simple to use, and versatile. At just just 2.8 cm X 2.8 cm, it is one of the world’s smallest bluetooth tags. Duet can be easily attached to keys, thumb drives and wallets. Or it can be hung on your bags and handheld clutch.
Duet Comes in 5 anything-but-dull colours
There's a colour for every personality. Whether you are action-oriented, cool, serious, sociable, or simple person, take your pick of duet’s 5 colors.
duet connects by Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android device. Setting up duet is as easy as downloading the PROTAG app onto your phone from the Apple or Google Play app stores.
What the PROTAG app can do
Ring Your Duet.
Press 'Buzz' on the app. Then keep calm and search on. Say you’ve left your keys lying somewhere in the classroom and don’t know where to start looking for it. Most people will start panicking, but you’re calm and composed because you can ring your duet’s inbuilt alarm from the app. And if you can hear it, you’ll be able to find it in no time!
Track up to 10 duets
You can add up to 10 duets and view them in the elegant map view. And the app will always remember the last location it saw them. And with that many duets, your phone also becomes virtually loss-proof.The protection you get is so tight, it’s almost reaching that of a musical orchestra.
You’ll know if you are getting nearer or further away from the duet within a 30m range when you turn on the Radar™.
Duet works with all Apple devices iOS 7 and above, as well as Android phones running v4.3 and above.
Unfortunately duet does not work with Blackberry or Windows Phones at this time.
