Tiles and Air Tags for Tracking
This presentation will introduce you to the Tiles and AirTags, small battery-powered devices that can be attached to your property. These are designed to help you find misplaced or stolen property by using an app on your smart phone or tablet.
By far the most widely publicized use of Tiles and AirTags is to find checked luggage lost by an airline. Tiles and Airtags can also help you find your car in a large parking lot, as well as finding your purse, key ring, wallet, bicycle, stroller, and even pets and small children.
You will learn how to connect a newly-purchased Tile or AirTag to the corresponding app on your phone or tablet, how to use the app to force a nearby Tile or AirTag to make a sound so you can find it, how to find tiled or airtagged property that is nearby but beyond the reach of BlueTooth, and how to start a Global search for tiled or airtagged property. Global Search uses other phones to detect the missing Tile or AirTag. Global search has been celebrated for finding lost luggage.
John has been using Tiles since mid-2020 and has recently also obtained an AirTag for comparison.
