Yes, they can be put on anything. However, the location is only updated when the device encounters another mobile device with the Tile app installed and running (required for location tracking of a tile). The app doesn't have to be loaded with "your" tile, just running the tile app. In the background the app sends a location to tile servers of the device it encountered and it's location. I have used it when I lost my keys at work, and thought I had left them in the bathroom. I opened my tile and followed the path to the supervisor and asked if they had found a set of keys (I described them) and they said "oh yes, I was going to take them to security." The tile app also lets you activate a tune to play from the tile if you are in range of bluetooth. (helpful if keys etc have been placed under something something... mail, seat cushion, etc. The place where it wouldn't be much use is in a wooded area or field where it would not be likely to encounter another mobile device running the tile app.
