The way it works is pretty cool, you put a tile on your object that you are worried about losing, and then you load the tile app on your phone. Your phone periodically monitors your tile objects and keeps track of them. Then when you tell the app to locate your object, it will try to connect to it via bluetooth. If it is able to connect, it does, and it plays a sound, helping you locate it. If it can't connect, it shows you where (on a map) it was last able to connect to it, so for example if you left it at work, and you are now at home, you'll know that you left it at work. Pretty neat!
That said, this product has definitely gotten worse this year. Now when you try to locate an object that you've had in your possession, say earlier in the day, and it's not nearby and you try to locate it, it'll tell you about where it was a month ago or some such. It's essentially worthless now for what was a really useful use case. It's now still very useful for locating things that are nearby, but if it's not nearby, it's no longer helpful imo.
So fast forward, I get this new removable battery version, and it sucks. The old 2018 version, we stuck on the dog's collar, and it connected great. Trained the dog to come to the door when the alert was sounded, and until it died prematurely (9 months), it worked well. We have a one acre invisible fence and we pretty well had an instant connect and full coverage. And yes, we only used the Tile outdoors when it was sunny and dry.
So this new one takes F O R E V E R to connect, even if the Tile is right next to you. The dashed circle just spins and spins. Once you finally get it to connect, the range is now down to perhaps 80 to 100 ft max - If someone holds it up in the air and there are absolutely no obstructions. Tried Chat and then Email to complain after a month or so of testing, and guess what. Coupon time - No offer to replace. As such, this is going back to Amazon. I'm done with this nonsense.
I'll try to open the old one and see if that battery can be replaced. But just be forewarned, the new Tile is thicker, bulkier, and doesn't work anywhere as well as the old one. And worse, the Support and Warranty sucks! Tread with caution.
When you misplace your keys, you go into the app on your phone (which is super user friendly) and tap, find my keys. It then rings your tile that is attached to your keys and if they are not in an area where they can ring, it shows you the location of the tile, which is also very helpful!
If you misplace your phone, you can double tap the middle button on the tile and it will ring your phone!
It is such an amazing product and I am thinking about attaching them to everything in my house!! (I am such a scatter brain!)
Top international reviews
Not one of the reviews made it clear that the Tile Mate 2020 *cannot* report it's own location to the App on your phone, because it doesn't know it's own location. All they do is tell you if the device is within a 200ft radius of wherever your phone is located. So when you look at the map in the app, all you see is YOUR location (ie. your phone's location) and if the Tile is detectable within a 200ft circle around your phone (or less if there are walls/buildings in the way).
If you want to actually 'find' the tile (and whatever it is attached to), you have to use the phone app to 'ring' the device and then use your ears to home in on its actual location.
So, if you attach the Tile to a dog or a cat (as per my intention), then it simply can't tell you where within the 200ft radius around your phone that the cat is located - he could be anywhere behind you, infront of you or left or right of you! All you know is he's somewhere within 200ft of you! If you want to find him, you have to sound the ringer on the tile using the app and listen out for him. Well, I could do that with a £1 cat collar with bell on it! And if I were to sound the Tile ringer while attached to my cats collar, he would run a mile because it's just too loud (even when set to the quieter level). And if he were to run away from me with the Tile ringer sounding, once he's out of range there is no way for me to cancel the ringer sound!
If the essentially 'bought' reviews for the Tile Mate 2020 had been more specific about how this item actually functions, and less keen to present the device in a favourable light in return for having them for free, then I would not have bought the device. I feel misled by the reviews for the Tile Mate 2020.
Without the subscription you can only trigger an alarm from one end or the other by pressing a button, and you can find out where the bag was last seen, but that's no good if you've walked off and left it behind and then someone has taken it.
Its predecessor (different manufacturer) worked just fine but was a poor quality construction meaning that the battery contacts were not reliable, but it did everything and at a much lower price and no subscription.
This one is a good sturdy construction and I'm confident that it would work reliably.
The subscription service is well thought out especially as it will use signals from your Tile device being detected by the phones of other Tile users to help find where your item is now. The subscription also includes free battery replacement.
The packaging is unfortunately destructive - you have to pull a tear strip to open it, and if it were not for this then I would return it and request a refund. I can't say it doesn't work as described because reading the description carefully it doesn't say anywhere that it will alert if you walk away from your device.
So, bottom line: well constructed, good looking, expensive subscription though well thought out, but doesn't meet my needs.
I bought tile instead of a cheap knock off because I thought that they'd work much better bud sadly I was wrong. Sometimes it doesn't even find my keys when I'm right next to them! It's basically an expensive weight in your keys, I'll be returning my tile and I strongly discourage anyone from buying this product.
Auch nach meinem Auslandsbesuch findet die TILE App das TILE nicht mehr richtig, die App sagt es wäre in der Nähe und sie würde noch einige Sekunden um sich zu verbinden, verbindet sich aber nicht mehr und somit lässt sich das Tile nicht mehr finden, ich kann es nicht mal auf der Karte sehen obwohl es vor mir auf dem Tisch liegt.
Ich habe das TILE letzte Woche Donnerstag gekauft, eingerichtet und getestet und in mein Portemonnaie gepackt (mehrmals getestet auch danach).
Am Freitag bin ich in den Urlaub geflogen,
Bluetooth Verbindung meines Smartphones war immer aktiv, ebenso Standort (vor und nach dem Flug). Jetzt habe ich mein Portemonnaie im Hotel verlegt (ich habe eine Konstante aktive Datenverbindung im Ausland). Leider Zeigt mir die TILE App mein Portemonnaie wäre noch in Deutschland, das klingt etwas unrealistisch da dort meine Reisedokumente drin sind.
Dazu kommt dass die TILE App zu diesem (relativ Teuren) Produkt nur in der Basisversion vorhanden ist, das bedeutet um das gekaufte Produkt vollumfänglich nutzen zu können müssen wir ein monatliches Abonnement abschließen, davon stand nichts in der Beschreibung.
Abzocke, geht zurück sobald ich wieder zuhause bin.
A week or so passed by when my wife started to complain that her Fitbit wasn't working and was refusing to sync its data to her phone. She then noticed that her wireless headphones were also not connecting. Simple enough, Bluetooth was disabled, so she re-enabled it. And then again and again and again, once every hour she needed to check if Bluetooth was still enabled. It was always off!
We spent a few days investigating as she'd only recently received the Android 10 (Galaxy S9) update on her phone, but there was nothing obvious as to why this was happening. And then we remembered the Tile.
Looking further into the Tile support site and FAQs and it seems Bluetooth instability has been a major issue for them in the past. We tried every option available to us to stop the Tile app from putting Bluetooth to low power/sleep or stopping it but nothing would work. Well, nothing short of uninstalling Tile, which we did and the problem was gone. As is the Tile as we've just returned it to Amazon, sorry but "ain't nobody got time for that!"
If you're an Android user I would seriously think twice about getting one of these, or at the very least test it thoroughly when you get it with other Bluetooth devices.
If you decide you don't want to spend the money on a subscription service, there's still a lot of value to be had.
One tile, attached to your keys, for instance, and linked to you phone lets you track down your keys when you have your phone, or call your phone if you have the keyring. If you've left your keys on top of your phone somewhere then you're out of luck.
Setup is simple BUT you will need to create an account, which make more sense if you are going to subscribe.
Now, there are similar devices without the worldwide network which cost much less, so you should possibly weigh up the cost versus the value to be had from the phone app and the 2 way communication between the phone and the Tile device.
Really like this, as I am getting to that point where the forgetfulness is real.
I spent 6 hours one Saturday looking for my keys. They weren't in the house, they weren't in the pub from the night before, they weren't in the pub car park, 8 miles there and back to check. They weren't in my wife's car who picked me up the night before (in the taxi sense rather than a Vegas style wedding), or in my dad's car from the journey to the pub.
They were in fact on the floor, under the dressing table in the bedroom. Tile purchased that evening.
Now every time I loose my keys, wallet or phone a quick check on the tile app confirms where they are, anxiety of loss instantly evaporates.
A bonus feature is that if like me your phone is always on silent, ringing it to find it is pointless. A quick press of your tile makes your phone ring out loud. Great.
Phone battery doesn't appear adversely changed.
