Uses for Key Finders

Typical Key Finder user-experience

A key finder is to have the device attached to a set of keys, and if these keys are lost, or misplaced, an action is performed - such as clapping, pressing a button on a locator device. The most basic function of a modern keyfinder device is it should i) beep, or ii) flash a light, or iii) or somehow guide a user towards the lost item.

Key finders have also been found to be useful to the visually challenged as well as those with memory problems or illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease or Attention Deficit disorders, ADHD. Military Veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder are finding key finders useful in combating the memory effects of the disease.

Modern life requires most urban dwellings, cars and offices, to be generally accessed via a key. The stress, cost and inconvenience of losing ones key to those environments is high.

Key finders are a practical way of alleviating these effects.
