XY is doing big things with small devices

Hey there, backers! 

 It’s been awhile since we have updated all of you on what the XY team has been up to, and since tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the first factory prototype landing in our office, I thought it’d be a great time to check back in.

 In January, we were showcased at CES in Las Vegas, and since then, we’ve been running full steam ahead working on making XY Find It the best Bluetooth Finder Tag on the market. We’ve been listening to all of your feedback and have been working full time on improving every facet of XY Find It. We’re working to make the design and interface of the app even cleaner and more user friendly. We’re constantly improving the way we work with the beacons to make alerts as accurate as possible. We wrote an entire new algorithm for working with the map data to improve the accuracy of the “last seen” feature. We reworked our firmware to improve battery life without sacrificing the beacon’s signal strength. We’re even looking at the hardware inside the device itself to ensure every round of XY Find It beacons is using top of the line tech. And, of course, we’ve completely reworked our backend to handle our quickly growing user-base without losing performance.

 While we’ve been putting in all this effort on the dev side, retail partners have been reaching out to us, because they recognize that we’re the most reliable tracking tag on the market. You can now see XY Find It on the shelves of stores like Fry’s Electronics and Brookstone, or find us online on target.com, walmart.com, and Amazon. We’re making arrangements to be in even more stores nationwide in early 2016. 

 Thank you all for your support over the last 18 months. There is no way we could be here today without you. 

 Sincerely, 

 The XY Team 

 P.S. Keep an eye out, because we are going to share an incredibly exciting announcement coming up very soon!

      @Aron - Glad you like them! We're currently working on a battery alert system, and working to improve the app itself to increase battery efficiency.

      Great trackers. I would still like some sort of automatic notification before the battery dies. The batteries lasted less than 3 months and we only realized after we were trying to find a set of keys.
