Amazon-Backed TrackR Locates $50 Million in New Round - WSJ
By Patience Haggin
Aug. 2, 2017

TrackR’s integration features include the ability to let users ask Alexa to help them locate an item. It also powers Alexa’s phone-finder skill.

In addition tracker tags that fit on keychains or inside wallets, TrackR said it plans to ship later this year its Atlas device, which plugs into wall sockets, to help people locate lost items within their homes more precisely. For example, someone could place the devices in the living room, kitchen and bedroom and then ask Alexa, “What room are my keys in?” Alexa would recommend where to go.

TrackR faces competition from similar offerings from corporate giants like the HTC Fetch and Motorola Keylink, as well as venture-backed startups like Chipolo Inc. and Tile Inc., which has also raised about $60 million.
