Samsung launches NB-IoT GPS smart tag

Posted October 17, 2017

The Connect Tag syncs with GPS and WPS, or Wi-Fi position system, for tracking. The device offers smart location notifications on a NB-IoT or Cat.M1 network to help a user conveniently see how far their belonging is. There is also a function to request the tag's location at any given time through your smartphone which can be helpful if you've parked in a massive parking lot. Samsung Connect Tag, the company said, has also been created to ensure that parents never have to worry about the whereabouts of a toddler in the house. These tracking and notification abilities will minimize anxiety about the user's favorite items or loved ones, offering an exciting way to use technology for increased family security and an enhanced lifestyle.

Geo-fence is another notable feature of the Connect Tag, which works in coherence with Samsung's SmartThings ecosystem, to notify users' chosen smart devices whenever their kids, for example, enter or leave a predefined zone. If you've given your tag to a child, they can use the tag to send you their location details, or you can set up location alerts to be sent to you periodically to track where they are.

Connect Tag comes with a ring that easily attaches so that it can be easily attached to bags, collars or key rings. It also feature an IP68 water and dustproof rating, which means it can survive the occasional splash.
