You have to pair your Protag with an Android phone (no iOS support yet) and place your Protag in your belongings (like in your bag or wallet).
When the Protag in your belongings detects that you are almost out of range, your phone alarm will go off. This is extremely useful when you are travelling and may help to prevent pickpocketing.
If you have not figured it out yet, it works both ways. When your phone is stolen and out of range with the Protag, it rings as well. The default distance is about 8m in open air and 4m in belongings but you can set it.
The audio level of the alarm depends on your phone volume.
There are a few other features such as:
- Proximity Alert: Your phone will alert you when it detects your belongings is nearby after you have lost connection with it
- SIM Card Security: When an unauthorised SIM card is inserted into your lost phone, it will sent the number to your secondary phone
My only wish for this device is for iOS support and make it even smaller!
