TV remote locator

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.

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 😔

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 😀

You can put Active Tags. it will give you more range. 😀
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 😔

Thanking you
