Cirago Unveils iAlertTag -- A Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Device That Wirelessly Secures, Alerts, And Locates Your iPhone

iAlertTag creates wireless link with phone and tag so when they are separated, both devices vibrate and produce an alarm sound

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cirago International, a leading manufacturer of Apple MFi accessories, storage and wireless solutions, today announced the launch and immediate availability of its new iAlertTag (IAT1000), a new solution for finding a lost iPhone, keeping an iPhone close by or locking your Windows laptop. The iAlertTag is equipped with the latest Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Technology, so users can save energy and enjoy a prolonged battery life.

Designed to be a solution to keep you from leaving your iPhone or valuables behind, the iAlertTag creates a wireless link with your phone and the tag so when they are separated, both devices vibrate and produce an alarm sound. In a similar way, if your Windows PC is equipped with Cirago BTA8000 Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the iAlertTag will automatically lock your computer immediately after you walk away, ensuring it will stay secure. iAlertTag comes with a free companion iPhone app which can be downloaded from the iTunes App store. The app allows users to set iPhone's alarm sound to any tunes from the iTunes library. The app can also manage multiple iAlertTags simultaneously--allowing users to keep track of easy-to-misplace items with a simple push of a button.

"How many of us have never misplaced our cell phone?" said Patrick Lo, President of Cirago International. "The iAlertTag is an easy to use and energy efficient device that can help users track and find their misplaced mobile device."

According to mobile security firm Lookout, if everyone who misplaced their phone in 2012 did not recover it, lost mobile devices would cost U.S. consumers a whopping 30 billion dollars. The iAlertTag saves consumers money, time and frustration spent looking for misplaced mobile devices.

The IAT1000 supports the Apple iPhone 4S, 3rd Generation iPad, and Windows PC equipped with Cirago BTA8000 (Bluetooth 4.0). The iAlertTag is easy to use--simply press the button on the iAlertTag and your phone will sound an alarm, or vice versa, locate a misplaced iAlertTag by pressing the button on the app on your iPhone.

The IAT1000 is now available for $49.99 at major electronics retailers, including Micro Center, Amazon, Newegg, and at www.cirago.com. For more information, visit www.cirago.com
