Samsung Connect Tag Launched, Supports GPS, WPS to Track Belongings

In order to build upon its IoT ecosystem, Samsung has made the Connect Tag compatible with SmartThings, which means it will work in conjunction with other IoT devices.

The Samsung Connect Tag is the first with NB-IOT connectivity, a specially designed cellular standard that uses little energy and can securely connect to the internet.

This technology connects to the Internet of Things via mobile data and is used with devices that have low power consumption and use small amounts of data. NB-IoT holds many benefits, including greater power efficiency to preserve batteries, strong coverage, support for lots of devices, and it's fairly low-priced to operate. The battery can last for up to seven days on a single charge, minimizing the need to constantly swap out or plug in the device. 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.

Other useful features include pressing a button on your phone to have the Connect Tag send its location to the handset (this is useful if you need to pick up your kid from somewhere or if you lose your vehicle in a crowded garage).

The Samsung Connect Tag also offers several key features to minimize anxiety and increase usability. If you are one of those people who are always losing keys or a purse, you can attach a Connect Tag to them. For example the device can trigger turning on the light when a user enters a room, or it can notify you when your child enters school grounds.

Measuring in at just 4.21 cm x 1.19 cm, the Connect Tag is an incredibly small device. Or they can set up to get a notification when the child enters the schoolyard or a dog jumps the backyard fence. It is dust and water proof. It will go on sale for a yet-to-be-disclosed price in Korea first before availability opens up in other countries in the following months. It has an on-demand feature by which you can request any Connect Tag's location when desired, by pressing a button on the smartphone.
