Samsung has something worth your time if you want to keep tabs on kids, pets or various other cherished items. The Korea consumer electronics giant just announced Connect Label, a small internet-enabled device that songs locationÂ and lasts a week between costs.
In other words, it is a similar offering to existing digital tagging devices from the likes associated with Tile, the U. S. start-up that pulled in $25 million recording and has picked up nearly $60 mil from investors to date.
Tile offers more flexibility on physical proportions but Samsung has gone for the thoroughly clean white look with the Connect Label, which measures 4. 21 centimeter x 1 . 19 cm. The organization puts that one-week battery life right down to its use of narrowband network technologies â? a standard that optimizes energy usage through more conservative usage of data â? andÂ it claims the tags are the first of their type to utilize it.
On the particular tech side, Samsung is using the combinationÂ GPS, Wi-Fi-based positioning and Cellular ID to triangulate a deviceâs location with accuracy. It also works together with Samsungâs SmartThings ecosystem, which means you can set up a geo fence close to your house, for example , to trigger lamps or switch on the TV automatically once you (and your tag) return house.
More standard notification choices include a location finder Android application, which pulls up the location in the push of a button, and regular notifications that keep you regularly advised on the location of a child or even, say, a pet when you are at the office or even elsewhere.
We donât possess a price yet, but the Samsung Link Tag will go on sale in Korea first before expanding to other countries âin the coming months.â
