motorola_keylinkMotorola has had a busy couple of months (like really busy), but they’ve still got one more little piece of hardware to push out to the masses. This is the Motorola Keylink, a $25 keychain that will help you find your misplaced keys or smartphone, Android and iPhone alike.

The Keylink is a small Bluetooth-powered accessory that can get attached to any keychain and paired with any Android (version 4.3 or higher) and iOS (version 7.1 or higher) smartphone using the Motorola Connect app, which is available for download from Google Play and the App Store.

The company claims that the battery inside the Motorola Keylink lasts upwards of a year and is replaceable with a normal coin cell battery.

“If your phone decides to play hide and seek with you, you can press a button on Keylink to make it ring up to 100 feet away. Or if your keys get a similar idea, you can use the Motorola Connect App to make Keylink ring,” notes company on its official blog.

Motorola also said that the Moto X (Gen 2), Droid Turbo or devices with Android 5.0 Lollipop can now use ‘Trusted device’ settings to enable the added ability to keep the smartphone unlocked when the Motorola Keylink is nearby.

Motorola has baked in an extra feature for Google-powered devices. Anyone with second generation Moto X, Droid Turbo, or an Android phone running Lollipop can enable the Keylink as a trusted device, so you never have to unlock your phone when your keys are near. But if you have nosey roommates, family members, or significant others, maybe you just leave that setting off.
