Attached a picture of it at my local home depot, I bought a few to try them out. I thought it would be kinda like a more rugged version of a tile but it's really not. It's more of an inventory tool tracking system, it would be cool if it made sounds like the tile and the app was more user friendly but again it not really made for tracking like tiles are, more for equipment inventory and limited tracking.

But still, cool just wish it had more features.

I almost bought one but after reading more about them it seems it's not really for a DIY homeowner.

This review [toolguyd.com] was pretty informative.

I've read a few reviews so far and still can't seem to answer my most important question, which is whether this will actually help me find a tool. It sounds like the answer is no, and the Tick really just lets you know that you're within Bluetooth range of it, and not anything more specific.

I'm not a contractor, but I have a lot of tools at home. Some are in my garage and some are in my storage shed about 30 feet away. Am I correct in thinking that using Ticks won't help me figure out whether I left my scroll saw in the shed vs. the garage? Because if it just says I'm within range of it, I could spend two hours looking through my garage when it's just sitting on a shelf in the shed.

At $10/each, if it could actually help me pinpoint a location I would buy at least half a dozen for important but seldom-used tools that I often store, simply because I am really forgetful about where I last put things. (I know, I should just be less lazy and develop a system to store stuff in the same place every time...)

But it sounds like maybe I am not the target audience for this product. Anybody know differently?

I'm in the same boat and I don't think it'd work for that. If you could make it beep or something it would be great, but as of now you can just tell if you're in range. I have a few of the Tile devices which would be great for this, but they aren't built so rugged and they're $25.

I don't know for certain, but I think it basically will tell you that the device is within a hundred feet of the software-equipped smart phone WITH bluetooth turned on. Finding a stolen tool relies on other people in your city running the app, as well (doubtful).

Also, the ticks only last for ONE year. What a joke! Pretty neat idea, but not really practical the way they have it set up.

Yes only one year but the battery is replaceable

You've got the right idea, it has no GPS capability so it relies on Bluetooth and you and other people having the app on their phone. So let's say it gets stolen, but another guy with the Milwaukee app goes near it, it'll notify you on your app. But how many people have the app on their phone? And people stealing tools definitely know about the tick so they'll look for it. So all in all I don't think it's all so useful.

I came up with this idea nearly 20 years ago. I'll add it to the list of things I should have applied for a patent on, but did not.

Know what you're buying. Although these are decent , not perfect. The cap for battery compartment is on the top side.milwaukee did this so if u wanted to epoxy the tick onto your item u can always change battery later. So if your tools are ever stolen, anyone can pop off the top and take battery out. I use these for larger items, like my cement mixers (I opened the power supply casing and found a nice spot) and lawn tractors . Just put them out of sight.

Edit: $10 is a fair price, I think I paid around 20$ each while ago.

Good luck. I tried Tile at Disney and it was terrible. I'm waiting for this:

It would be nice if these Bluetooth tracking device companies, possibly with Google/Apple/Amazon/Microsoft/Samsung/Intel/Broadcom, come up with some standard protocol and implement it as an standard always-on feature on phones/tablets/etc (sort of like how our phones are location tracked for "Find My Phone" features without us knowing or caring). Not very likely as there are so many enemies (Google, Apple, Amazon) and patents involved, unless Google acquires Tile and have the desire to open it to others (good luck with that, and then everyone will have to compete with cheaper Chinese nonames).

Given that One-Key isn't compatible the currently-the-most-popular-but-still-not-really-that-popular Tile, it's no wonder that Milwaukee doesn't claim this as a theft prevention/recovery device.
