Consumer technology distributor Petra Industries has announced a partnership with Smart Tracking Technologies, which markets GPS smart collars for dogs. Smart Tracking Technologies is focused on IoT in the wearables and tracking industry, with the goal of connecting pets with their people.
Smart Tracking Technologies’ signature product, Link, is a GPS unit designed for dog owners that lets them track their pet with built-in GPS capability. Its location-tracking functionality helps owners manage their pets’ off-leash adventures with temporary Bluetooth safe zones that are created using the owner’s smartphone. Some of the data that Link provides includes activity monitoring with recommendations for a dog’s breed, age and size. It also will log the pet’s veterinary records.
This water-resistant smart collar also allows the owner to remotely turn on the dog’s collar light and sound, be notified of potentially unsafe environmental temperatures, and more, all from the app. The Link’s battery life is listed as approximately two days with normal use.
“Smart Tracking Tech’s innovative lineup of Link smart trackers are vital to helping resellers make inroads with their pet-loving customers,” said Tate Morgan, president of Petra Industries, in the statement announcing the partnership. “Their devices will provide customers with cutting-edge solutions to track pet health and wellness. We’re excited to see how our relationship continues to grow.”
