Abstract

The present invention is an electronic item locater that includes a transmitter and one or more receivers. The transmitter enables a user to locate any item, such as a missing remote control unit for a television set, by causing a small receiver attached to the missing item to emit an audible alarm signal when a button on the transmitter is pressed. The transmitter can be programmed to send unique signals to multiple receivers. The receivers are small, battery-powered objects that can be attached to items such as television remote control units, cordless telephones, and car keys.
