My idea is to make a small device that can be useful to locate small and important things in home like tv remote, purse, glasses , etc.... I want to make a common circuitry design so that it can be attached to anything . But I am not getting the correct circuitry. So anyone please suggest me the circuitry required. I want to make it as my mini project.

Thanking you. Posted in: #Coffee Room

Good idea using small RFID chip with every such device can solve this problem.

I need this device.! I always misplace my car keys, wallet, etc at home ๐Ÿ˜”

Hm, RFID range might be a challenge. You'd probably need to install multiple readers to be able to get good detection rates.

Some cheap radio-beacon system would be nice ๐Ÿ˜€

You can put Active Tags. it will give you more range. ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, the range must be in a sweet spot! You'll want to be able to locate the device in a certain location, not just detect it. Readers must still be placed in strategic locations.. either 1 in each room, or a few and try triangulating the position (though indoor radio reflections wont help).

Thanks to all of you. Actually my idea is to design a circuit which can produce a particular frequency on pressing a switch and at the receiver side it must be able to receive that frequency and should produce the voltage required to ring the buzzer. Because I'm totally new to RFID ๐Ÿ˜”

Thanking you
