“Together with Alarm.com, we are continually imagining, developing and integrating technology to reduce the number of things people worry about and increasing their level of control.”
Today, Alarm.com and Tagg GPS Pet Tracker announce the launch of Smart Pet Tracking, a connected solution that brings together security and awareness for the home and the entire family. With Smart Pet Tracking powered by Alarm.com, homeowners can use Tagg GPS Plus to keep tabs on their pet’s activity and location from the Alarm.com mobile application. Millions of homes powered by Alarm.com can easily add Smart Pet Tracking by acquiring a Tagg GPS Plus device through an authorized Alarm.com Service Provider; available in the first quarter of 2015.
Tagg GPS Plus, a waterproof, on-collar GPS tracking, activity monitoring and temperature sensing device for pets, expands Alarm.com’s large ecosystem of connected devices. Alarm.com’s powerful Smart Home platform brings together connected devices across the home together in a unified experience.
“The Smart Home helps protect and manage the things people care about most, and pets are critical to that mission. We’re excited to continue to expand the breadth of devices available on our platform with the addition of the Tagg GPS Smart Tracker, said Alison Slavin, co-founder and Senior Vice President of Alarm.com. “Adding security and peace-of-mind for the family pet to Alarm.com’s offering makes perfect sense considering more than 10 million pets are lost each year in the U.S.”
Smart Pet Tracking uses Tagg’s proven technology to report pet activity levels and uses the nation’s largest wireless network to provide immediate notification of a pet’s GPS location. From a single mobile application users can check on pets with real-time video and access a range of home automation features. Custom lock codes and alerts allow their pet caretaker to easily and securely come and go, or notify the owner if the caretaker failed to arrive.
“When it comes to the value of the secure connected home, the well-being of pets is at the top of the list for most families,” said Scott Neuberger, chief executive officer of Tagg GPS Pet Tracker. “Together with Alarm.com, we are continually imagining, developing and integrating technology to reduce the number of things people worry about and increasing their level of control.”
