There is a lot of false alarms, connection problems and it rearly works at all.
The range is virtually zero. I have the device in my wallet, both my wallet and my phone is in my pocket, yet it still starts to beep!
It seem Philips developers forgot to do any kind of product testing before selling it to unsuspecting customers such as myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Neteyes Terrible product, immature!!! DON'T BUY!!!
I bought 3 leashes from App Store US, so disappointing!
1/ At the beginning, I paired 5 times before my iPhone 5 finally found the leash (my iPhone 4S refused to find it literally).
2/ The actual range is much shorter than what Philips announces in the product spec, and my iPhone starts to ring a false alarm even when the leach is WITHIN the range and the bluetooth connection remains well established!
3/ Some times inRange app tells me that my iPhone has a problem with the bluetooth pairing with the leash and asks me to do delete the existing pairing and do a new paring again, while the iPhone and the leash are perfectly connected together...
4/ When the iPhone and the leash are out of the range and set off to ring, I bring my iPhone back within the range, 50% of times, the bluetooth connection can't get reestablished automatically, and I have to do the paring again from the bluetooth setup of my iPhone.
5/ In the inRange app, there's no zone setting feature described in the pdf user's manual one can find online.
6/ I'm going to return back the 2 other leashes I bought and keep only one that I opened (I trusted too easily Philips beautiful publicity), this product is far from mature enough to put into market!

Have not found the distance range announced by Philips for activating the alarm.
As Bluetooth Spec, Range is from 5m to 100m
Class 1: range up to 100 meters (in most cases 20-30 meters)
Class 2: range up to 30 meters (in most cases 5-10 meters)
