What does ‘fob’ mean as in key fob?
A key fob is a small object that contains the remote keyless system in an automobile.
A small object, usually made of leather or plastic and about the size of a pocket watch, that houses the receiver inside. This can be attached to a belt loop or on a chain for easy access.
Information to include in answer: The term “remote keyless entry” is industry-specific and means any type of wireless remote entry device for an automobile door lock system. It operates by sending coded information from either at close range or from up to 30 feet away with the help of radio waves emitted through antennae — allowing car drivers to unlock their car if they are outside of it but too far away to reach it physically.
Key fobs are the most common device today, but earlier systems used magnetic key switches on motors in which a proximity switch turned on an electromagnet (attached to the door lock) when you got within range of it; you would then unlock your car by sticking your regular key into this magnet.
A fob is a small metal device that attaches to your keychain. The linking chain may also be made of leather or cloth, it holds the keys together and prevents them from getting lost.
Key chains are often used for carrying identification such as a driver’s licence or bus pass. It can hold keys, coins and other personal items so they’re easy to reach when you need them quickly. You can attach sewing pins, golf tees and other things on the lanyard instead of using coins to activate locks at laundries!
“Fob” is a shortened form of “fobbed off”.
For example: What’s happening with that security guard? You know the one I’m talking about. He was fobbed off by his son for his own protection and he spends all his time these days out on the porch behind his house.
The security guard has been neglected and abandoned so now he really seems to just be rotting away where he stands. It’s sad but not unusual in this society, especially when it involves eldercare or terminal illness, to find people left alone today in many different ways and they are often vulnerable or easy targets for any kind of abuse-be it physical or verbal.
A “fob” is a word for an ID badge.
A “fob” is the small device attached to your keychain to signal that you are authorised to enter a vehicle or building. They’re also used to alert security, in case you forget your card at home, which could have been copied by someone else. FOBs may also be used as identity cards in other contexts like schools and theaters. The term may also refer maybe slang for someone who’s light on their feet or just too cool to care about anything but themselves.
There are many definitions for “fob.” In the case of keys, a fob is also called a keychain.
In other words, it’s metal accessory that attaches to your belt or lapel which can hold your keys. It might also be encased with things like stainless steel bottle openers and led light pens to make it more useful on various occasions. All in all, it’s an excellent way to keep your keys in order from being lost down some microscopic little crevice between the couch cushions or underneath a pile of clothes on the floor (which is if you’re forgetful like me). The best thing about a fob is that if get scratched up or dull looking, swapping out its contents for new is very easy.
A vehicle’s key fob is a transmitter that communicates with the vehicle by radio waves and lets drivers lock, unlock or start their vehicles without using a physical key.
The word “fob” is an example of onomatopoeia, which is the use of a letter to represent a sound. In this case, the “o” in FOB stands for “off,” as in “put off.” If you think about it, CHOP comes from an opening and closing motion–say it out loud if you need help understanding what I mean. FIT has two syllables: first comes FIRE then brings INTELLIGENCE together at once like machinery grinding onward before GENIUS can emerge.
A small, compact design.
The key fob is made of aluminum metal and it’s sleek, minimalistic and not too big or bulky. It has a nice weight attached to the chain so you can feel its presence around your neck without it getting in the way. I used to have some trouble with people trying to remove my clothes but now that I’m wearing my key fob (which looks like an ordinary necklace) underneath my clothing no one has been able to find it despite their best efforts! The peace of mind this has given me is priceless!
A key fob is a small accessory that serves as a key chain with additional function, for example providing an LED display.
Some people call them “keychains”. Others use the term “car remotes”, because traditionally many car remotes control features of the vehicle when carrying the remote on your belt. The corded version of these were also called a “lanyard”. In addition, some people call them “man-purses” or “alarm buttons.” Other names include purse fobs and ballpoint pens and occasionally wristbands. Women’s size wristwatch can be considered small enough to fit in most men’s pocket so they are often used instead of wearing watches on one’s arm (such as when playing basketball).
A key fob (also known as an auto remote, wireless entry device, or keyless entry remote) is a small electronic device used to unlock or lock vehicle doors. The typical key fob has buttons on both sides of the face; one locks and unlocks the vehicle’s doors while the other triggers its alarm system. Some early designs of key fobs had a metal key at the bottom capable of operating a lock.
The purpose of a remote is to allow the vehicle operator to have both hands available on the steering wheel while locking or unlocking doors or activating other systems, thereby reducing the risk of theft by enabling the vehicle operator to keep his or her foot on the brake pedal and the vehicle in gear.
A key fob is a small device used to tether keys together to avoid misplacing them.
It should mention that it could also refer to the remote car starter that you are required to have near your car.
A key fob, or remote keyless entry (RKE), is a hand-held wireless transmission device for unlocking or locking an automobile door and in some cases starting the engine from distances up to 30 metres away. Keyless access systems can sense when someone comes nearby and automatically unlock the doors, they can be programmed not only for individual users but also with temporary codes so visitors can get in without having to fumble with keys. It’s based on RFID technology like what you find in contactless credit cards and keycards.
Key fob can also refer to a small device used for starting an engine or igniting the fuel in diesel engines. Keyless start refers to when you don’t need to use your keys to start your car – it could be done remotely with the push of a button, or automatically when you approach your car. This can be done wirelessly by a controller that connects to your car’s OBDII diagnostic port, or the key fob you already use to lock and unlock your car can also start it.
It stands for ‘Practical Object for Emotional Attachment’ and is a psychological phenomenon where people tie emotions to objects, so they feel better about buying these products.
An example would be sports teams fans that wear their team’s jersey or hat all the time because they find it comforting. Just like many people feel like there’s something wrong with them if they don’t have an animal in their life, some individuals think something is wrong with them if they don’t have a keychain to show off. They’ll buy one just to get that feeling of fulfillment. The keychain becomes a constant reminder of who you are and what you care about (just like wearing your college sweatshirt).
