Samsung unveils Connect Tag

Samsung Connect Tag

Wikipedia describes the narrowband network technology as follows: NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed to enable a wide range of devices and services to be connected using cellular telecommunications bands. 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. Let's discuss in detail, the invention operates on Wi-Fi-based positioning, and Cell ID technologies to fetch location information for both indoors and outdoors. As for how you might put it to use, Samsung suggests, attaching it to a kid's backpack, clipping it to a dog's collar or putting it on a key chain so that your keys never get lost. Best of all, it lasts for seven days on a single charge, allowing a parent to go a full school week without having to plug it in.

The Connect Tag will be also tied to the SmartThings ecosystem.

The Samsung Connect Tag also offers several key features to minimize anxiety and increase usability.

Pregnant Kate Middleton Made the Time to Calypso with Paddington Bear
Regardless, Kate's baby bump certainly stole the spotlight as it was 100% noticeably underneath her pink Orla Kiely dress. But the Duchess of Cambridge can also rally when it comes to Paddington Bear.

This makes the Connect Tag a lot more versatile than something like Tile, as Tile needs to be connected to your phone via Bluetooth. The geo-fence feature on the Samsung Connect Tag will notify the user's chosen smart devices when he or she approaches - so if the user wants lights and TV to turn on while getting home from a nightly run, the Samsung Connect Tag can trigger these products as the user enters the pre-define zone, so the user will get a notification when the child enters the schoolyard or a dog jumps the backyard fence. As noted on the appended video, the Connect Tag could also be helpful if you constantly lose track of where you vehicle is in a parking lot.

The device will send "periodic location notifications", letting you track your loved one's location record for peace of mind.

Connect Tag will be showcased at the Samsung Developer Conference 2017 on October 18-19 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, United States. Samsung will launch the Connect Tag in Korea first before expanding to other countries "in the coming months".
