I ordered these new Tile Mates (latest generation with replacement batteries). After I gave them out to my other family members, when I went to "share," I was SHOCKED to find that we can now only share with 1 other family member. I am alerted that for $3 PER MONTH FOREVER I can join Tile Premium and do what I used to do for free.
Not only are these new Tiles less functional, but you also downgraded my old Tile Mates and I cannot share them with any new people either! You also want $3 PER MONTH FOREVER for what was free.
I went from being an incredibly satisfied customer who told everyone to get Tile, to an incredibly disappointed customer! Don't downgrade your product after sale! Tile, turn this dissatisfied customer into a happy one again by returning sharing to how it was!
So I ordered two packs of 4 Tiles this time. We hid one in our vehicle in case it's ever stolen, one in our travel trailer for the same reason, and attached another to our dog's collar just in case. I gave one to my son for his keys, and used one for my second set of keys. Last week I also gave a Tile to a friend who is always losing her keys, and she has used it several times already.
These new Tiles come with replaceable batteries, which the original version did not have. Those batteries were only good for about a year, and then you had to replace the Tile. So make sure you're buying the NEW 2018 version with replaceable batteries.
The 4 packs at their current price cost only less than $15 per Tile (with Prime). I've saved literally hundreds of dollars in time and potential locksmith expenses—not to mention the peace of mind gained—using my Tiles (which is why I bought so many this time). It's one of the best investments I've ever made, and I highly recommend them. *I am NOT associated with the maker or any seller of Tile in any way; this is my honest, unsolicited opinion.
setting up the App was easy enough. I tested the Tiles in the house. when the keys/cats were near, a green circle went around the photo, a green "Find" bar appeared, and when I pressed the bar, the Tile buzzed and played a tinny tune.
I put the tiles on the cats' collars. I test the "Find" feature every single day inside the house to make sure it is updated.
Now to the hard part - one of my cats slipped out at night. She is 17. She apparently stayed close in the backyard because the Tile green "Find" bar appeared. I pressed the bar and heard the tinny tune. However, it was impossible to actually see the cat who was apparently hunkered down under my back deck (there is less than 6 inch gap under deck).
The buzzing and the tune either didn't freak her out enough to come out or it freaked her out to move further away from me and toward the building line. And the further she scooched away, the lower and more tinny the tune became until it was almost inaudible. As the November night temperature dropped and the wind whipped and I had called her name and shaken kibble, put out a can of tunafish, etc, and it was 3 hours later on a work night, I gave up and went to bed. This morning, I got up, hopeful she might still be within the Tile range. no luck. She is either out of range or the battery in the Tile has died. I doubt it is the battery she is wearing the Tile only a month. However, if she out of the 150 foot range and is roaming the neighborhood, how does the Tile help me? According to the company, if another Tile user buzzes to my lost cat, I can go to that location in hopes of finding my pet. But there is no easy way for me to send out a local "SOS" to Tile users in my area. I believe I am back to the Old School method of stapling paper flyers to the trees on my block.
On top of that, the App screen says the Tile was "last seen November 1st". umm, no, yesterday was November 20th.
I spent almost 2 hours on the phone with Tile customer service. They are useless. They used the circular logic of saying they might be able to troubleshoot IF I was near my lost Tile. Grrr
I sincerely hope my cat is not dead and/or gone, but I had to post this review to save the heartache for pet owners looking for a solution. From my Amazon research, it seems that a GPS tracker would be more accurate but they are mainly for dogs and just not small enough for cats.
I am so sad. Please don't buy a Tile unless you want to track items/pets who are already in the house. If I lost my remote somewhere in the living room, fine, Tile will find it and play the tune. But outside, forget it. I want to find the device that can go on my cat's collar, that can send a signal to a satellite and send me a GPS real time map with an accurate to within feet location of my pet. And I will gladly pay money for that. But it doesn't exist, at least not on Amazon, for cats.
so the story has a happy ending, but I would not have gotten it without the Tile. I decided that if the Tile battery hadn't died, it still must be transmitting even if the cat had died. So I decided to leave the confines of my property and walk around the block in the hopes that maybe she was beyond the 150 foot range, but still close enough for the Tile to connect.
After I rounded the corner, about midway down the next block, the Tile app buzzed and the Green bar appeared. It showed the cat was close by. I was directly in front of a completely dark house that had a humongous pickup truck-on-steroids in the driveway. I approached the truck. I saw at the back of the driveway, there was a tall fence and just beyond the fence, there was another vehicle with a tarp over it. If she was in front of the fence, I had a chance of recovering her. If she was behind it, there was no way I could (trespass and) scale that fence. Of course there was enough ground clearance that a cat could go under the fence and be hiding under the car under the tarp. It was a 50/50 shot. Of course I called my cat's name, but she is not the type to come when called or go up to people. she is beautiful but standoffish.
I pressed the "Find" button and I heard the tinny little song. It appeared to be coming thankfully, from under the truck in the driveway in front of the fence. I got down on my hands and knees and looked under the truck. No cat. I called my boyfriend who is small. He came within a half hour with a flashlight. I pressed the button again and he crawled up under that truck and located the cat hiding up in the wheel well. Luckily, she just hunkered down in fear and he grabbed her. 1-2-3, he passed her to me and I held her tight behind the scruff of her neck and cuddled her. She was severely dehydrated and covered in grease but she was alive.
We walked home and as soon as we got inside the house, I put down a can of wet cat food. she wolfed down a half can. Then disappeared to go sleep and recover. The photo I posted is her the next morning, still greasy but perky and waiting for breakfast. The Tile reunited me with my beloved cat so I updated my review.
The Bottom Line is: I could not have found my cat without the Tile App connecting to her collar and her being within 100 feet. Had she been under that other car beyond range, forget it. But had I not had the Tile app, I could have walked around the block shaking kibble and calling her name and walked past that pickup truck never knowing she was hiding up inside it. So it was a success in this situation. You have to get out and walk around with the Tile and hope it connects to the missing pet. My mistake I think was not setting off to look for her as soon as I lost connection. I got very lucky in this situation. But I am still researching my GPS tracking options because I want something that will direct me to where my cat is without me walking around and hoping the Bluetooth connects.
A Thanksgiving Miracle for sure.
