Android: Add a Bluetooth Tracking Tag

Learn how to add a One-Key Bluetooth Tracking Tag to any item in your inventory—from expensive generators and power equipment to miscellaneous jobsite items like ladders, job boxes, carts, and more.

A ONE-KEY™ Bluetooth® Tracking tag helps you keep tabs on your important equipment inventory by extending One-Key’s industry leading Bluetooth tracking functionality to untracked items.

In this article, we’ll show you how to properly activate a Bluetooth tracking tag on your Android smartphone, so you can start tracking one of your items today. 


Get Started on the Mobile App for Android

You’ll need to first download the One-Key app on your mobile device if you haven’t already done so. You can download the app for free from Google Play.

  • Open the app on your device. On the login screen, tap the blue Get Started button.
  • Select Create an Account, then type in your email address and a strong password composed of uppercase and lowercase letters, at least one number, and that’s at least 8 characters in length.
  • Ensure tool tracking is enabled:
    • Open One-Key on your Android device, then tap into Settings. Under phone settings, ensure Location Access is toggled on. Then, select “Tracking permission” and ensure the blue button at the bottom of your screen is pulled fully to the right, displaying all green checkmarks, indicating full functionality.
