Introducing Tago the smartest item tracker with a versatile button that can control many actions on your phone.

Tago is a revolutionary product that finally puts an end to the stress of losing important or valuable items like keys, wallets, purses, pets or even children.

Tago is a unique multifunctional finding, tracking and homing device that was created by a team of Australian technology specialists to solve our most galling and persistent problems and thereby make our lives safer and easier. Tago uses tiny Bluetooth tags that work with the free Tago App to give iOS and Android Smartphones the capability to track anything, find an item that's lost, or warn the user that something valuable is being left behind or moving too far away. Tago also has a Community Find feature that harnesses the power of the crowd to find lost items, and a handy homing device that uses GPS to get the user back to any location they mark, such as a parked car or a tent. An added feature of Tago is that it acts as a remote shutter release to take picture-perfect selfies.

We've all experienced the sense of panic that comes when we realize our wallet, purse, keys or phone have gone missing.  For most people it's a disaster that leaves us disorientated and anxious, because these are the items we use to organise our lives and keep things running smoothly. Without them, we feel lost.

If you're one of the millions of people prone to losing things at home or in the office, from now on Tago is going to make your life a whole lot simpler.

THE FINDER, THAT’S A KEEPER

Protect the things you keep losing & the things you’d be lost without.

Tago is quite simply the smartest item tracker and finder out there. At its heart is a sophisticated App that's easy to install on your iOS or Android Smartphone, and easy to use, with on-screen instructions that guide you. Along with the App, Tago uses small but very powerful tags that you can attach unobtrusively to virtually anything, from your wallet or specs to your dog or cat or bicycle.

Once a tag been registered on the App via your phone's Bluetooth, it and your phone stay in constant contact. So if the item you've tagged ever goes missing, your Tago App can tell you the last place it was seen.

And if it's your phone that goes missing.... no need to despair! Just use one of the Tago tags to ring your phone, so you can hear where it is.  The Tago App and tags are the smartest detective due since Sherlock and Watson!

The weatherproof Tago tags run on an easily replaceable battery that gives you up to 12 months of stress free living, safe in the knowledge that your important things are protected. In fact Tago is designed to be forgettable - until you actually forget something, when its clever engineering steps in to save the day. Put Tago on the case (or on the collar, under the saddle, or wherever you want the tiny tag to go) and anything you're missing is just a click away.

The finder that’s a keeper

Tago tracks anything you tag and helps you find it quickly. The keys you dropped, the wallet you left in the restaurant, the dog that escaped through the gap in the fence...ask Tago to find them and it  casts a low energy 30m (100 ft) Bluetooth beam to search them out. Tago's radar distance indicator then tells you how far away they are and guides you in using an audible signal.


But Tago goes one step further in keeping your valuables safe, because thanks to its two-way separation alert it actually stops you losing them in the first place. This helpful feature lets you set an audible alarm that alerts you when you and your item become separated. Drop your keys and walk away....and the alarm will warn you that you've left them behind.

A time to stay silent

Tago knows when to attract your attention, but it also knows when not to interrupt. Not only can you customise ring tones and alarms, but for the places where you want to separate tagged items from your phone without being warned at all, you just set a 'Silent Zone.' These zones use GPS to define areas where the separation alert won't sound.

Tago never forgets

Tago is great at remembering things. If you lose something you've tagged, the App will remember the last time it made contact. Not only will it tell you your item's last known location, but it also tells the date and time it was there, and shows you the spot on a map! Now, you've got the best possible chance of finding it.

Community rescue - safety in numbers

If all else fails, and despite knowing the last location you still can't find your missing item, mark it as 'lost' on the Tago App and Tago's Community Find feature swings into action on your behalf.

Community Find is a neat and effective search and rescue solution that sends a silent, coded notification about your missing item to all phones using the Tago App. If anyone with Tago open on their phone comes within 30m of the missing object, their App automatically and anonymously transmits your missing item's location to Tago's operations centre. You then get a notification telling you where it is.

With Tago, it’s a small world after all!

Safely back home

And that's not all that Tago does to shrink the world. Because wherever you go, Tago's 'Find Location' function makes it difficult to get lost. Find Location doesn’t only remind you where you parked your car, it's a full blown homing device that will guide you safely back to any spot you mark. Going camping? Use Tago to mark the spot where you pitched your tent, so you don’t get lost on that all day trek through the woods. Going shopping on holiday? Use Tago to mark your hotel, so you can be sure get back in time for lunch.

Smile for the camera!

Tago works as a Wireless Remote Shutter Control for your Smartphone camera, which solves the eternal problem of how to get great selfies. No more pictures from strange angles, you just put your phone down, move into position, and use the button on your Tago as a remote shutter release. Perfect selfies every time!

The future's bright - with Tago

Tago is already the best-featured device on the market, but that's no reason for us to rest on our laurels. We are already working on an exciting new generation of features. And thanks to Tago's built in future proofing, when we roll them out existing Tago users will get a free update to take advantage of everything new.

Soon the Tago App will let you use the wireless button on each Tago to create three user-definable shortcuts based on one-click, double-click or click-and-hold shortcuts. That means you'll be able to control music, snooze the alarm, launch a mobile app, sound an alarm, book a taxi, turn on the lights, share your position, navigate to a location, send a text message, make a call, take video, record voice.... and more!

Tago - a search engine for the real world.

Now that Tago's arrived, life is going to be easier. When something's lost, there's no need to waste time searching high and low - just Tago it. What you lose, Tago finds. Saving you time, money, and stress.

This means you can quickly find anything you tagged.

Protect the things you lose often and

the things you’d be lost without!
