Found It

Keep track of your stuff around the house, without the need for dozens of Bluetooth trackers


Description

With Found It, you can keep track of your stuff around the house, without the need for dozens of Tiles or other Bluetooth trackers. Simply add the stuff you need to find every once in a while, tell the Shortcut where you last put that thing, and then you’ll be able to ask Siri where that thing was.

I wrote these shortcuts out of frustration of continuously losing things around the house, forgetting where those things were, and not having anyone to ask who might know. Now, if I lose the keys, my box cutter, my passport, etc. I can just ask Siri via Found It.

Technically, this is four separate shortcuts: 1. Found It, which contains all the functionality of logging items, tracking them, and updating the location 2. Help Me Find Something, which just asks Siri where something is 3. I Moved Something, which just informs Siri where something has moved to 4. Keep Track of Something, which just informs Siri of a new item you want to track

You can also easily create specialized shortcuts to ask about specific items (eg. “Where’s my wallet?”) by passing a text value representing the item (eg. Wallet) into one of the shortcuts.

All the data containing your items and their locations are stored securely in iCloud Drive.
