CES - Adero's Smart Tags and Taglets Help Make Sure You Never Leave Your Stuff Behind
Knowing where your stuff was last seen can be handy... or frustrating, depending upon where it is versus where you are. Adero takes that to the next level by making sure that you don't forget your stuff in the first place. Shown off at the CES Pepcom event, Adero's Bluetooth-based Smart Tags work similarly to what you've seen from Tile or Trackr, syncing with your phone and letting you know where your stuff is. The differentiator is Adero's smaller Taglets which attach to the contents of your backpack or purse. Sure you know to grab your backpack, but wouldn't it be great to know that your bag contains the key items you need, like charger, AirPods, and glasses? Simply put a taglet onto each of those three items, and the Smart Tag on your bag will tell you if anything's missing, either via a red/green LED or via alert to your smartphone. Adero will help you find your stuff if you've left it behind, too, but with their tech the idea is that you won't leave it behind in the first place. US$119 gets you an Adero starter kit with 3 Smart Tags and 3 Taglets.
