Track and Locate What Matters Most with SmartThings Tracker
RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. — September 10, 2018 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., today announced its new SmartThings Tracker, a small, lightweight GPS tracking device connected through an LTE-M network that can easily be attached to backpacks, a set of keys, pet collars and more. Now, people can quickly and more accurately keep track of their most valued items.
With SmartThings Tracker, it’s easier to locate a gym bag or backpack lost at school, a laptop case left in the airport lounge, or a pet that might have wandered too far from home. Items can be easily tracked in real time through Samsung’s Android and iOS compatible SmartThings app. Family members can also use SmartThings Tracker to stay connected by sending a location notification to the SmartThings app that alerts the rest of the family of their whereabouts. And, since it is SmartThings-enabled, SmartThings Tracker can be used as an arrival sensor, triggering automations like a connected porch light turning on when the device is within range.
“When it comes to connected living, we want to give people more meaningful experiences that apply to their everyday life,” said SK Kim, Senior Director, IoT Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “By combining the coverage of nationwide carrier networks with the expansiveness of the SmartThings ecosystem, we’re helping families keep track of what matters most to them while also continuing to make it easy to control and manage their smart home, all in one device.”
