Never losing my keys again

nokia treasure tag and lumia icon

Yes, I am one of those people who misplaces my keys often. Half the time they are actually in my purse actually and I just miss seeing them because my bag is kind of large and has a lot of stuff in it all the time (Grandma would be so proud). The rest of the time I’ve put them down somewhere when I came home and I just cannot remember where.

Years and years ago I remember getting my Great Aunt June a keychain that would beep when you whistled. She had the same problem losing her keys too. She loved the gift but if the keys where buried somewhere a bit the whistle finder did not really help. Advance to present day and there is something better. At a recent Verizon #VZWBuzz Influencer Summit, Microsoft gave me a Nokia Treasure Tag (by the way I love the name) to try out and it solves my lost key problems!


Once you connect the sensor to the app you can edit the name, color, and when you are notified. Nokia Treasure Tag The Nokia Treasure Tag app tells you when your tag is connected

The Treasure Tag pairs with my Nokia Lumia Icon smartphone using NFC (near field communication). You pair the two up by just tapping them together, very easy. Then I put the Treasure Tag on my key ring. The app on my phone lets you set up multiple Tags even and name them and have different icons. You can use it on anything you like, my keys were just the obvious choice for me for my first one. If I change my mind I can just move the Tag to whatever I want.


If you can't find your keys, ask the Nokia Treasure Tag app where your keys were last locatedThe Nokia Treasure Tag app is capable of connecting to multiple Nokia Treasure Tags

Now when I can’t find my keys I just tap the Treasure Tag icon on my phone and it makes the fob on my keys beep so I can find them! Sweet!

 If you had a Nokia Treasure Tag would you use it on your keys or something else?

OMG this is so cool! I would use it on the TV remote. My kids never put it back on the charger when thy turn off the TV. :) Seriously I would put it on my keys. I would also get one for my sister who can never find anything!

This is pretty nifty! I dont lose alot of things but hubby does. He would need one for keys sunglasses his hat (which is usually on his head) and anything else :)

Oh my goodness; I lose my keys more often than I would like to admit. I would definitely use a Treasure Tag for my keys. My friend gave me a portable electronic key finder from The Sharper Image, and I do use that (but this is cooler and more convenient; shhhh).
