Remote Play TagAlert (http://rbi.ims.ca/4924-543). To avoid leaving a cell phone, portable computer or game behind, this active RF wireless technology product sounds an alert when the owner exceeds a preset range from 20 to 75 ft. The monitor has a switch to adjust the range and a snooze button. Each tag has a unique ID, so multiple tags can be used within the same area and a single monitor can recognize more than one tag. The units rely on ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments (TI) that contain from 1 to 120 KB of Flash memory and up to 10 KB of RAM.
