Tag a front door or window and your Gecko can send you an alert on your phone every time the door is opened and closed. Making use of low energy Bluetooth, Gecko can track objects. The promotional video shows someone getting out of bed in the morning and using the Gecko to find the phone. (You can attach it to a key, and if you can’t find the key you can use your phone to make Gecko sound a beep. If you can’t find your phone, you can get Gecko to make the phone start ringing.) The moment the object, or pet, or toddler, moves out of the 100 foot range, you hear an audible alert. Tag your pet to get an alert when it leaves a 100-foot radius.
Geckos can work with iOS and with Android devices. The Gecko is packed with a TI CC2541 SoC, and runs on a coin cell battery that can last 1.5 years with normal usage. An LED and buzzer provides the alert that can be heard in a noisy environment. An accelerometer sensor provides motion detection.
