Both the devices work with the recently announced Atlas, which is a Bluetooth-enabled Wi-Fi wall plug that serves as the main hub for locating all items connected to a TrackR device.

Users simply need to attach TrackR’s devices to important items such as keys and wallets. Following which, tracking these items from a distance of up to 100 feet through Bluetooth becomes easy. Outside of this range, TrackR’s technology relies on a crowd-sourced network of TrackR products to locate the missing items.


The TrackR Atlas also supports Amazon’s Alexa. This allows users to issue voice commands to their smart speaker in order to locate a misplaced item.

Pre-orders for the TrackR Atlas have started and shipping is expected to begin in the coming months.
