This GateKeeper Android AND iOS app that works in conjunction with the GateKeeper Chain (GK Chain) to enable users to locate and track desired objects. The GK Chains can also be used to auto-lock and unlock your computer using our GateKeeper software.
You can purchase the GateKeeper Chains at www.gkchain.com.
There are two main operating scenarios for this app.
The app can be set to “ALERT” mode wherein the smartphone keeps track of the GK Chain. In the “ALERT” mode, if the user carrying the smartphone walks away from the GK Chain, it will start beeping and warn him that he/she has forgotten the GK Chain.
The app can also be set to “LOCATE” mode in which the user can use the app to locate the GK Chain. In this scenario, the app will connect to the GK Chain and indicate to the user how far it is from the smartphone. As you walk around, the app will indicate whether you have moved closer or farther away from the GK Chain. Using the "LOCATE" feature will also cause the GK Chain to buzz making it easier for you to find your lost valuables.

You'd think we'd have all learned our lesson these days about computer security. While Edward Snowden's efforts are probably out of the leagues of most people, it does seem rather silly to leave our work computers unlocked and vulnerable when we are away from our desk or when we go home at night. That's why the Gatekeeper Chain (or GK Chains) app was created. It lets you auto-lock and unlock your computer when you walk away and toward it...amongst other things. Gatekeeper - Locate and Alert is an Android and iOS app that works in conjunction with the GK Chain and offers additional features - specifically to locate and track important objects.
There are two main operating scenarios for GK - Locate and Alert. First up, there's the alert mode where the smartphone actually keeps track of your GK Chain. Along with the USB Lock, the GateKeeper software tracks your proximity to your computer and locks it when you walk away. It’s an easy way to protect your privacy while using the low energy Bluetooth solution. If the person carrying the smartphone walks away from the GK Chain there will be a beeping alert that reminds them not to forget about the GK Chain. Secondly there's the locate mode where the app can be used to locate the GK Chain if you are unsure of its location. In this scenario, the app will connect to the GK Chain and tell you just how far away...
