To date, there are a lot of wireless devices to find lost things, however, they share a common problem: you can only find a lost tracker using a special tracking application.
Samsung introduced a SmartThings tracker that uses the standard of wireless high-speed data transfer with low power consumption of LTE-M. The device can report the location of the lost thing even from there, where Bluetooth and other technologies will be powerless.
However, the SmartThings do not limit themselves to searching for lost things. It can be used as a “smart” house control – for example, with its help you can turn on the light upon returning home or activate the surveillance camera when leaving. You can also activate the “geofunction”. It will help to track the location of a walking dog within the yard or tell your friends and relatives the place of your stay, for which you need to press the power button twice.
With this in mind, the SmartThings tracker will be worth a bit more expensive than similar Bluetooth-based devices. Samsung offers it for $ 99 in a “package” with the service provider AT & T for $ 5 per month. SmartThings will be available at Samsung and AT & T stores on or after September 14, or later via Verizon.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
