SEATTLE, Dec. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Soracom, Inc., a global provider of smart connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that Pebblebee, the creator of leading-edge tracking devices such as Finder 2.0 and BlackCard, has chosen Soracom connectivity to power Found, a revolutionary real-time location tracker for people, valuables and pets.
With over one million devices shipped to date, Pebblebee has quickly established a position as a leader in the field of personal tracking. Found breaks new ground in the space by combining a convenient, miniature form factor with industry-leading range and battery life, allowing on-demand location tracking almost anywhere in the world for up to 12 months on a single charge.
For everyday needs, Found operates in extended-range Bluetooth mode, allowing location over distances of up to 1000 feet. In emergencies, such as a lost or missing pet, Found can access cellular networks to extend that range to any location covered by Soracom LTE-M connectivity, anywhere in the world.
"We’ve created Found to keep track of the things that are too important to lose," said Daniel Daoura, Pebblebee CEO and Founder. "To get it right, we couldn't be limited by the available range of Bluetooth or the power demands of conventional cellular connectivity. Soracom's IoT-optimized LTE-M service enables us to deliver industry-leading battery life while ensuring the greatest possible user experience."
"Asset tracking represents one of the most important categories in IoT today," said Eugene Kawamoto, Soracom Americas CEO.
