The best of…loss-prevention devices

GlobaTrac Trakdot, Proximo Starter Kit, and more

GlobaTrac Trakdot
Throw this palm-sized product in your luggage before flying and you’ll get a text indicating its location upon landing—“even if you and your bags didn’t reach the same city.” Service fees are required.

Proximo Starter Kit
This set includes a sensor like the Stick-N-Find, plus a key-chain fob that can sound an alarm on a misplaced iPhone. The Proximo’s “standout feature”: Each sensor’s location is roughly trackable on a GPS map.

Stick-N-Find
The diminutive size of these sensors—about that of a quarter—“opens up a whole world of objects to track.” The sensor beeps when you page it, and it can be set to alert your phone anytime it strays outside a specified distance.
$50 for two, sticknfind.com

hippih hipKey
The slightly larger but “incredibly pocket-friendly” hipKey does one thing the Stick-N-Find can’t: It allows you to define zones, like your home or office, where no annoying alarm will sound when the sensor and your phone become separated.
