What does the "XD mean? How does Proximity Detect™ help?
One of the most common questions about FOFA is "how loud is it?" People ask this because they know that sometimes, keys or lost objects are BURIED in things. While the FOFA XD alarm is loud (94dB), it does something quite new when you command it to sound the find alarm - it also transmits a radio beacon back! The FOFA XD you are using to transmit with automatically looks for this beacon signal, if it sees it, it beeps once, then flashes it's LED light in time with it. Now you know your keys are there, just BURIED. The flashing beacon gets more regular as the distance decreases as well.
Now you can prove your neighbor really does have your stuff from outside his garage!

How does it work? Where is the "finder"?
You don't need a separate "finder" with FOFA. They are ALL finders! As well as being a radio receiver, each FOFA contains a complete radio transmitter, which you
can activate with the buttons on the front, allowing you to FIND all the other FOFAs!
Here's the example we regularly give on the phone to help understand how FOFA works:
When you first got your FOFA's, we will assume you set your key's FOFA as #1, your wallet's Flat FOFA as #2 and
your cell phone FOFA (you can hang it from your phone or it's case) as #3.
Here's what you do if you lose each item.
You lose your keys. Grab your wallet or cell phone, push #1 on either of their FOFAs and your keys will start to beep and flash, if within range.
You lose your wallet. From your key's FOFA, push #2 and your wallet will start to beep and flash, if within range.
or.. from the cell phone, use it's FOFA the same way.

Why do you sell the key fob FOFAs in pairs?
2 Reasons: 1) Most folks have at least 2 Sets of keys at home. A main set and a spare set or you and a companion's.
2) We want to make sure you get at least 2 FOFAs! (They are like telephones, you need at least one other to
talk to!) After 2, the more you have, the better, in terms of finding your things of course.
So how many should I order? How many of the "Key fob" shaped FOFAs and how many "Flats"?
That is the best part - order as many as you need! From just a single Set of 2 key fobs (to look after 2 Sets of keys) to multiple sets in one home/office. The Flat FOFAs are great for wallets, purses and flat DVD-type remotes. It is entirely up to you. Remember - when you order at least 4 FOFAs (such as 2 Sets of 2) in any combination of Key fobs and Flats - you get FREE US Priority Mail Shipping! (US Orders ONLY - to 1 US Address)
