PAJ Easy Finder 4G

I travel a lot and it's really important to ensure that my luggage is safe and reaches its destination. I was thinking how I could do this? I looked at various options and that is when I came across the idea of purchasing a tracking device. After much research I came across the PAJ Easy Finder 4G tracker. 

What is the PAJ Easy Finder 4G tracker?

The PAJ Easy finder is a new generation of GPS trackers with 4G coverage. It is suitable for vehicles, people, valuables and luggage. It is compact and small enough to fit into a pocket. The tracker comes with a charging cradle, M2M SIM, USB power outlet adapter and a leather pouch for storage. 

How easy is it to set up the PAJ Easy Finder 4G Tracker?

After unboxing the tracker and before the first use it requires to be charged for 8-12 hours. 

Next down load the PAJ app alternatively you can use the desk top version if desired.

Log into the and purchase a subscription, Next activate the device.

How does the PAJ Easy Finder work?

The Paj Easy Finder works with a sim card on a 4G or 2G network or a mixture of both. It is able to live track any item and provides instant alerts. The tracker provides live tracking in over 100 countries. The tracker has a 14 days battery life, however the more the tracker is moved and it will send more alerts using up more battery life so it may not last the full 14 days. It also has standby mode.

It provides:

Motion / vibration alarm

Alarm notification as soon as the GPS tracker is shaken or moved.

SOS alarm

Alarm message as soon as the SOS button is pressed.

Radius alarm

Alarm message as soon as the GPS tracker leaves the specified radius.

Speed alarm

Alarm notification as soon as the GPS tracker exceeds a certain speed.

Battery alarm

Alarm message as soon as the battery level is low.

I used the PAJ Easy Finder tracker in my suitcase on a recent trip to Portugal, it gave me the reassurance that I was able to track my suitcase every step of the way with alerts.  

Once the tracker was set up, all that was required was to place the Paj tracker that was fully charged in my suitcase amongst my clothes. I found it easy to set up and use. It provided all the information I required about my bag.

The tracker offers many functions, some more complicated than others which enables you to obtain highly detailed reports about the item you are tracking through live maps, distance, range finder and past history. 

What is the total cost of the PAJ Easy Finder 4G tracker?

The tracker can be bought from Amazon and there are different types available for tracking various things. My main use for this tracker was for travel. The Paj Easy Finder 4G Tracker that I had was  £48.99 plus £5.00 for 1 month Subscription. There are various different models available that are priced according to the model and facilities they offer.

  • The tracker was very useful as it sent me shock alerts notifications promptly and accurately.
  • I was able to track device live on a map showing route information. This was useful as we had a wedding dress in our suitcase and we had peace of mind knowing where the suitcase was every step of the way.
  • The two week battery life was useful as it lasted the duration of our holiday.
  • The instructions were unclear regarding leaving the tracker on in the aeroplane hold, however a call to the customer services cleared this and they said it was OK. I was told that the new manuals will be updated with this missing info.
  • There were various options for the subscription purchase to suit your needs such as monthly, quarterly or annually. 
  • My device did not send me a low battery notification although the instructions says it should. A call to the customer services soon resolved this small glitch.

Overall the tracker served it's purpose well, the customer support was good and efficient. I will continue to use it on my travels as I found it useful.The tracker was gifted to me and all the points raised in this post are of my personal experience using it.

The best thing I bought this summer - a retractable pergola


Today’s blog post is one I have been dying to write about for a while now. I often like to share with my friends and family things that I have recently purchased, giving my own mini-review and recommendations. Well, let me tell you, my friends and family have definitely heard me go on about this product for a while now and some of them have even got their own thanks to me! What is this mystery item I hear you ask? Designer Shade Solutions retractable roof pergola that’s what! I am going to tell you everything you need to know about these amazing shading structures and hopefully have you hopping on the trend too.

So, what are retractable roof pergolas?

The best place to start is probably with this question... what are retractable roof pergolas? To put it simply, retractable roofs or louvre roofs as they are also known, are pergolas with a roof that can tilt to create shade, open to maximise sunlight or shut to protect from heavy showers. This means that these “modern pergolas truly allow you to be outside more (and protect you from the elements)” as mentioned by Dork Face in a recent blog. Since having my own retractable pergola roof I have experienced a range of different weather conditions and I can confidently say not one has stopped me from enjoying my beautiful garden space.

What if my garden isn’t big enough?

This next question is one I’ve commonly heard whenever I’ve told anyone about my retractable pergola. Thankfully, there’s an answer to this! Designer Shade Solutions “offer an entirely bespoke experience” as said by Life on the Lock, so they can create the perfect pergola to suit your criteria. For example, when installing my pergola, I chose to have it as a stand-alone piece in my garden, but you can alternatively attach your retractable roof to your property as an extension or have it custom built to your desire. Not only this, but I also added heating to my pergola so that I can continue to enjoy it even in the winter. Who knows maybe I’ll spend Christmas morning relaxing there!

The best investment option

My final persuasion point on these structures is the excellent investment option that they offer. Moving and Improving admits that  “a pergola on its own is more likely to provide broken shade than full shade coverage”, not to mention the lack of protection they offer against wind and rain. Retractable roofs are clearly worth the investment in this sense as they offer practicality as well as visual appeal, unlike traditional pergolas. They can even help to increase your property value too so, what are you waiting for?

What do you think?

So, there you have it, a retractable roof pergola - the best thing I bought this summer (and maybe even this year). Will you be contacting Designer Shade Solutions for your bespoke structure? Get your garden ready for the colder months and hold on to those warmer days spent outdoors for a little longer.
