Key fob

We used the Cobra Tag to keep track of our keys, but you could attach it to a backpack, a purse, or any other item you'd like to keep nearby.

In the event that the phone is the half of the equation that's missing, the app can also lock the phone with a PIN and send out time and location data via e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter.
