Samsung Introduces Cellular IoT Mobile Device to Track Your Pets, Children, or Personal Items


Samsung Electronics is launching the Samsung Connect Tag - a consumer mobile product that uses the narrowband network technology (NB-IoT, Cat.M1) to track items, your family members or your pets.

The narrowband network technology is a specially designed cellular communication standard for small data utilization, low power consumption and the ability to securely connect to the internet for optimal location services. The Samsung Connect Tag offers smart location notifications based on a NB-IoT or Cat.M1 network, leveraging internet services to identify location information for family security and peace of mind.

The Samsung Connect Tag will work with GPS, Wi-Fi-based positioning (WPS) and Cell ID, so it can receive accurate location information both indoors and outdoors. It can be attached to a young child's backpack so his or her whereabouts can be tracked, clipped to a dog's collar so it won't go missing, and secured the keys so they are never lost.

The Samsung Connect Tag will be tied to the SmartThings ecosystem, working in conjunction with the user's smart home appliances through Works with SmartThings. The geo-fence feature on the Samsung Connect Tag will notify the user's chosen smart devices when he or she approaches - so if the user wants lights and TV to turn on while getting home from a nightly run, the Samsung Connect Tag can trigger these products as the user enters the pre-define zone, so the user will get a notification when the child enters the schoolyard or a dog jumps the backyard fence.

The Samsung Connect Tag also offers several key features to minimize anxiety and increase usability. If the user loses car in a large outdoor parking lot, the on-demand function will allow requesting any Connect Tag's location when desired, by pressing a button on the smartphone.

The Send my location function will send their current location to their guardian, so even a young child can let you know exactly where he or she is and can go pick him/her up safely. Additionally, periodic location notifications will show a trace the loved ones location record.

Connect Tag is measuring just 4.21 centimeters wide and 1.19 centimeters thick, and features IP68 water and dustproof rating for durability. The battery can last for up to seven days on a single charge.

In South Korea, the tag will use mobile carrier KT's nationwide NB-IoT network, which completed deployment in July
