OK, simple idea this one. It’s a gadget that you put around the collar of your dog or cat and it’ll provide you with peace of mind when your pet goes wondering.
Ever had that sinking feeling when your dog runs off into the distance or your cat fails to return from a night on the tiles? This will monitor the location and activity via 3G connectivity, GPS, LBS (Location Based Services) and Wi-Fi. It gives you completely real-time tracking information for just $79.99 on www.paby.com.
There is, because of the data connection, a network charge you’ll need to pay. However, Paby give you a number of options. You can either use an existing contract on AT&T or T-Mobile, or you use the included free SIM card and pay $4.99 per month via the Paby website. Choose the latter and you’ll get 30 days of free service.
You use a free app to setup a “virtual fence” which, if your pet leaves a predetermined zone, will alert you. It also shows how many steps your pet has taken, how many calories they have burned and what their sleep patterns are like.
The device itself is just 31.6 grams and is waterproof, plus you can get it in a range of designs and colours. It includes a small LED and a speaker which plays a sound when they are near.
No news on battery life as yet, but we’ll let you know more as we’re hoping to get one of these on test!
PABY LAUNCHES SMART PET LOCATION AND ACTIVITY TRACKER
Smart Device Easily Attaches to Collars and Harnesses, and Features GPS, LBS and Wireless Technologies to Provide Pet Owners with Real-Time Activity/Wellness Tracking
No Matter Pet’s Location
(Los Angeles, CA) – July 11, 2017 – Paby today introduced its 3G wireless smart pet tracker that monitors a pet’s location and activity to provide owners with peace of mind when it comes to their furry loved ones’ safety and wellness. Equipped with a combination of advanced 3G GPS, LBS (Location Based Services) and Wi-Fi technologies, Paby provides consumers with real-time, highly accurate tracking information, no matter where their pets are. Paby, which works as a stand-alone device, allows users to set “virtual fences” using their smartphones to receive real-time alerts when their pets leave the designated “zone.” And, with a durable band that fits any sized collar (small/large), the activity tracker allows users to also monitor their pet’s number of steps, calories burned, sleep patterns and the intensity of their play time. Paby is available for $79.99 at www.paby.com.
Paby features a small, light (31.6 grams), durable and waterproof design available in a variety of colors and patterns (“Spider Red,” “Future Green,” “Allstar,” “Midnight Black” and “Bubble Pink”) to match the pet’s personality. This innovative, environmentally friendly pet product also includes an RGB LED flashing light for added pet safety and a high fidelity waterproof speaker that plays a sound to alert the user (via the mobile app) when their pet is nearby. With a gel state polymer lithium ion battery, the GPS tracker incorporates the latest battery technology and is built to last with PC ABS, laser direct structuring, UV coating and in-mold decoration.
Paby comes with a free app (iOS and Android) that allows users to view custom reports and alerts, designate virtual fences, and receive daily exercise recommendations based on the pet’s breed, weight and age. The intuitive app allows users to register their pet’s profile and instantly track its location via Google Maps. Users can share the app’s pet data with other Paby owners, and manage unlimited pets on their smartphones. Paby is committed to a pet’s health and safety, and as a result, they developed smart data and algorithms to provide information on recommended exercise time for pets based on their breed, weight and age.
Paby requires a cellular network connection to properly track the owner’s pet. To provide flexibility, users have two options when it comes to the cellular coverage being used for this. Option 1: Paby comes with a free SIM card and offers network subscription plans starting at $4.99 per month at http://www.paby.com/plan/ (those purchasing an annual network service plan through Paby will receive 30 days of free service). Option 2: customers with AT+T and T-Mobile have the option to use their existing wireless network.
