How to connect and use Panasonic Seekit Bluetooth device tracker

- Advertisment -

To track the valuable items, so you never lost them, the Panasonic has launched a special kind of nifty device called Seekit. It is a portable tracking device that uses the phone’s Bluetooth to communicate with the Seekit app installed on a smartphone. It is a Bidirectional tracking device which gives voice alerts when the user gets away from its range of 100 feets. As I said bi-directional that means either the Seekit or Smartphone (with app) both can send alerts if they start getting apart from each other’s vicinity. If you forget your smartphone and you have the Seekit in your wallet or as a keychain, it will start producing voice alert; now assume another situation, let’s say you have a wallet or car keys tagged with Seekit and as soon as you start getting out of its range you will get a message alert on your smartphone. So, its kind of vice versa thing. It is has IP65 for protection from rains. Tracker is available in two variants — Seekit Edge and Loop and is priced at Rs 1,599 and Rs 1,299 respectively.
